    I can see this working with the Arab League but the UN? I don't think so. If secularism can be blasphemed by religious radicals then secuarlists should be able to attack them back. Anything less is restrictive to freedom of thought.

    More "wisdom" from the "religion of peace".

    I despise all religions, but I hold a special hate for Islam.

    Should the Civilized World signs this, it would be a sad day indeed for freedom, liberty or hell common sense.

    Damn shame we've so forgotten that simple, but powerful sentiment eh?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Considering how the press in these various Muslim countries depicts the star of David, should I assume they plan on arresting themselves first?

    It seems.

    The Muslim cry now is "I don't have to like what you might say, but I'll fight to the death for you to shut the hell up, you damn infidel dog!"

    The Dhimwits around the world are saying "Islam is peaceful. Don't insult Islam!"

    That's because, as a religion, libertarianism is more dogmatic and irrational than all the others combined.

    While it seems like it would be unlikely this ever passed, never count out the cowardice and appeasement of the UN, particularly when it comes to the Middle East.
