Islam Demands ‘Defamation’ Law of U.N.

U.S. efforts to reform the U.N. Human Rights Commission have been impeded by an Islamic bloc proposal that the U.N. adopt an anti-blasphemy law banning "defamation of religions and prophets."

Human rights organizations are denouncing the proposal as the infringement on free speech that it obviously is. Kofi Annan, however, doesn’t see it that way:

"The Islamic bloc proposal ‘is not inflammatory,’ Mr. Annan said. ‘I don’t think it is something that goes counter to the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, or even freedom of the press.’"

Me: After denying that anti-blesphemy laws run counter to a free press, Annan further decreed that black is white, war is peace, and freedom is slavery.
