In this installment, Fishin’ Guy brings attention to a very scary United Nations Resolution, Resolution 16/18 that essentially opens the door to implementation of Sharia in the United States. But you can do something about this. ACT! for America is gauging how much support there is in each state for American Laws for American Courts legislation. Please go to the ACT! for America website and sign the petition here. You will need to scroll down a bit to the form. AND you can call your senator or representative…the phone number to the Capitol switchboard is at the end of this article. Please call your representatives!!!! – Burkasrugly
Last month, a meeting was quietly conducted in Washington, D.C. that may signal the beginning of a slow dismantling of the First Amendment. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hosted the meeting for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The purpose of this gathering was basically to discuss how the United States can implement the OIC agenda to criminalize criticism of Islam.
The end result was that a freedom-limiting resolution, United Nations Resolution 16/18, was adopted by the U.S. government.
After seeing that support for the UN Blasphemy Resolution was dwindling, the OIC sought a meeting with Clinton to do an end-run around the Constitution. Since 2005, this group has been trying to implement a ten-year program that would have the UN adopt an international resolution to counter “Islamaphobia” and call upon States to counter it, including “deterrent punishments.” (Jail time for criticizing radical Islam).
The meeting was described as a working session to discuss legal mechanisms to combat religious discrimination. However, the only religion that the UN Human Rights Council ever mentioned in any previous resolution was Islam. The Human Rights Council includes several “outstanding” protectors of human rights such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, China, Cuba, and Libya. In Pakistan women get the death penalty for being raped – Islamic law says they have committed adultery by being raped – and blasphemy against Islam is punishable by death.
Why aren’t liberals howling about this? If Resolution 16/18 is fully implemented, their rights to dunk a cross in urine and display it as “art” may be over. Probably not, though, since this sham meeting was only about imposing Sharia law and Islamic supremacy upon unsuspecting American Christians.
The First Amendment is our only protection against this resolution. Europe doesn’t have a First Amendment, and as a result several notable cases of “incitement to hatred of religion” have been moving through the courts there. If you don’t believe me, just ask Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, a free speech activist who was charged in 2010 in Austria with “denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion” for asserting that “Mohammed had a thing for little girls.”Yep, criticizing radical Islam can get people into legal trouble in several European countries.
Clinton’s eagerness to appease countries that are human rights violators is despicable. Please be aware that this woman has put your freedom of speech in jeopardy.
Adoption of this resolution is unacceptable. Americans are not made to be ruled by Islamic supremacists….much less the United Nations. Let your Congressman hear about this. The phone number to the Capitol switchboard is 202-224-3121. Just ask for your representative or senator for your state. Please be polite but firm that you will not stand for this.
Until next time,
