Islamic Country Coalition Attempts To Use United Nations To Supress Free Speech

US Mounting Effort To Counter Limits on Speech Critical of Islam

The non-binding Resolution 62/145, which was adopted in 2007, says it “notes with deep concern the intensification of the campaign of defamation of religions and the ethnic and religious profiling of Muslim minorities in the aftermath of 11 September 2001.”

It “stresses the need to effectively combat defamation of all religions and incitement to religious hatred, against Islam and Muslims in particular.”

It's a shame that many of these same nations did not go out of their way to ban "honor killings" nor fortify the rights of women.
