Muslim leaders, including the newly elected president of Egypt, are using the UN meeting to demonstrate their unreasonableness and their lack of information. The UN Charter does not guarantee anyone the right not to feel insulted. On the contrary, it supports the right to free speech. That right guarantees that someone will feel insulted sometimes. Freedom of religion, also in the Charter, means only the right to practice one’s religion, Christianity in Saudi Arabia, for example. Ooops!
Ahmed the Camel, the sub-dictator of Iran, is up to his usual adolescent antics against Israel on the occasion of the Jewish New Year. Too bad the Israeli political class may not have much of a sense of humor when it comes to survival. Ahmed is acting as if he wanted the Israelis to gift parts of his country with instant martyrdom. There is a good chance they will accede to his wish because they don’t have much choice if you think about it.
And, by the way, I don’t want to accept any lesson from any society that prescribes capital punishment for renouncing one’s religion. I am thinking of Finland, of course: Renounce being a Lutheran and die! Or is this just an urban legend? Of course, there are no countries that are members of that big circus, the UN, and that also prescribe death for those who say that they are not Lutheran, or Muslim, anymore.
I suspect that just asking the question makes me “Islamophobic.”
Somebody help me or correct me, please.
