Surprise! Pakistan Interior Minister Asking Interpol To Ban On-line Anti-Islam Material

You’ll remember that the Muslim bloc of nations amongst the UN Human Rights Council have attempted to pass a “defamation of religion” resolution multiple times that would make it a crime to defame Islam and Mohammed, and have tried other routes at the UN since 1999. Hillary Clinton sympathized. And we’ve seen Mr. Obama and Clinton, along with a raft of others, sympathize with Islamists being offended by a video, which was simply a pretext, considering that the video came out months ago.

Question: if this was a spontaneous grassroots demonstration, where’d all the al Qaeda style flags and headbands come from so quickly? Or is it that a ton of Muslims keep the flags and headbands that are similar to the al Qaeda ones around “just in case”?

Anyhow, here we go

(Daily Caller) If one well-known Pakistani politician gets his way, international law will forbid “anti-Islam” material from the Internet.

Friday afternoon, Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik wrote in a series of tweets that he has spoken with and written to the Secretary General of Interpol about enacting an international law to stop all anti-Islam propaganda online.

Considering that, as I mentioned yesterday, the US government is acting in a censorship role in asking YouTube to see if the stupid video violates the terms of service, it seems the Obama admin. thinks that offending Muslims should be stopped on-line, too. Fortunately, Google decided not to remove the video. Yet. And then we have the film maker being brought in for “questioning” on the pretense that he broke the terms of his parole. The message is “don’t insult Islam”.

And where’s the ACLU? They’re “concerned”

(Daily Caller) In a statement to The Daily Caller, director of the ACLU Speech, Privacy and Technology Project Ben Wizner said,

“To our knowledge, no U.S. government official has questioned the right of anyone to make this repellent film, and rightly so. We do get concerned when the federal government appears to throw its weight behind a request for self-censorship, but we don’t know the details of the government’s interactions with Google.”

That’s about as squishy a message as one can offer. Boy Wonder Jay Carny stated during his press conference that White House asked YouTube to look at the TOS to see if there was a violation. On the bright side, the US State Dept. says to stop questioning them on what happened in Benghazi

The State Department told reporters Friday afternoon that it won’t answer any more questions about the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans until the investigation into the incident is complete.

“I’m going to frustrate all of you, infinitely, by telling you that now that we have an open FBI investigation on the death of these four Americans, we are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this this happened — not who they were, not how it happened, not what happened to Ambassador Stevens, not any of it — until the Justice Department is ready to talk about the investigation that’s its got,” State Department spokeswoman Victorian Nuland told reporters late Friday afternoon.

Transparency. Of course, the American reporters probably want to know what effect Mitt Romney had on the situation for daring to question the Obama administration’s response. Which is interesting, considering

(Fox News) While the Obama administration says there was no actionable intelligence that could have prevented the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, there was a heightened threat in the region due to at least four attacks on diplomatic and western targets leading up to the murder of the U.S. ambassador.

Hey, campaigning is hard work, and who would’ve thought that Islamists would riot and attack?

    I feel like Alice in Wonderland. The State Department’s diplomatic security is virtually nonexistent. Yet all he media and administration can harp is this stupid film.

  2. Orson Snow says:

    Pakistan has been leading the charge for Blasphemy Laws invoked by the United Nations “Human Rights” committee for years. It resulted in at least 3 resolutions to that effect. However, it lost steam when the African countries started abstaining (or supporting freedom of expression over censorship).

    Most recently, the UN went the opposite way and admitted such laws would contradict free speech, and that’s where it rests at the moment. What find interesting is the US participation in these negotiations. US Ambassador to the UN Eileen Donahoe was a representative of US interests when Pakistan was pushing the Blasphemy resolution back in 2010. She stated:

    We cannot agree that prohibiting speech is the way to promote tolerance, because we continue to see the ‘defamation of religions’ concept used to justify censorship, criminalisation, and in some cases violent assaults and deaths of political, racial, and religious minorities around the world.”

    Just so. The Muslims use “defamation of religions” to justify their killing/rioting idiocy. Our President is using “defamation of religions” to censor youtube videos and intimidate sub-par film makers.

    How appro po.

    Right on David. Alice in Wodnerland indeed. Except she would have been flogged, raped, and then jailed for allowing herself to be raped, for appearing in public exposing herself like that.

    Incredible post Teach. I don’t think I can grind my teeth any harder.

    We need to kick the UN out of the US and just spit on “international law” if it continues to spit on us.

    There is no reason that we need to be the prime subsidizer of the UN if it does not hold our interests or our western ideals.

    I am literally sick to my stomach at how far we have fallen. Especially those who pushed us down this anti-religion road, and are now praising the benefits of Sharia.
