Pamela Geller has her hands full keeping up with the onslaught of negative “press” she gets for trying to keep Sharia out of the United States. One of the most powerful organizations in the world, the United Nations, has gone one step further in muting the U.S. Constitution’s 1st Amendment and its religious freedoms protection.
“After having cowed the Western establishment media into silence, afraid to violate sharia blasphemy law for fear of jihad attack or charges of “Islamophobia,” now Muslim countries at the United Nations are moving in for the kill against free speech. We can only hope that Nikki Haley will stand strongly against their nefarious plans, but these days, you never know.”
Gellers latest post pulls information on the U.N.’s next target of free speech: “Muslim countries to raise online sacrilege at UN,”
Which quoted from “The Gulf Today,”
[dateline] ISLAMABAD: A meeting of ambassadors of the Islamic countries with Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan in the chair has decided to raise the issue of blasphemous content on social media in the United Nations.
We Americans – or most of us, anyway – don’t worry about what’s happening in the EU until it gets on a boat or a plane and hits our borders.
For a look at how Sharia is impacting the EU, Italian journalist Giulio Meotti wrote the following article, “Germany assimilates Islamic crushing of free speech”
Even William Shakespeare’s plays have been prohibited in the re-Islamicized Turkey. This is because repression under Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan never rests: the novelist Asli Erdogan, the linguist Necmiye Alpay, the liberal columnist Sahin Alpay, and the editor-in-chief of the secularist Cumhuriet daily Murat Sabuncu are just some of the intellectuals jailed by Erdogan; Nedim Gürsel, author of the novel The Daughters of God, was tried because in the Koran the “Son of God” is a blasphemy; Irfan Sanci has been persecuted for having published The Soft Machine by William Burroughs; the caricaturist Musa Kart was prosecuted for having painted Erdogan as a cat; the archaeologist Muazzez Ilmiye Cig was accused of “insulting Islam” for claiming that the use of the veil dated back to before Mohammed; and the pianist Fazil Say was put on trial for mocking Islam. Many journalists left the country, such as Can Dundar, who left after surviving an assassination attempt outside the court. In the museums, foreign ambassadors are now executed by Islamists in broad daylight.
Join us in supporting legislation that would keep such anti-free speech laws out of America. American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) is one way to preserve the U.S. Constitution and the rights of Americans. Below is text from Act Cleveland’s page on ALAC:
Rather than seeking a ban on foreign or international law, ALAC seeks to preserve the constitutional rights and state public policy protections of American citizens and legal residents, in cases involving foreign laws in the particular dispute being adjudicated. If a case arises in which a foreign law or foreign legal doctrine is involved in a dispute in a state court, ALAC prevents the use of that foreign law or foreign legal doctrine if any of the parties’ fundamental constitutional rights or state public policy would be violated in the process. This is very different from a blanket ban on foreign laws.
Act for America chapters all over the country are working with their state legislators, encouraging them to offer the bill, and supporting them in their efforts to pass this legislation.
