The lands between the Mediterranean sea and India that is south of what is called Russia. Many of these states are influenced by the Islamic teachings.
Here are some of the main articles of the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights to which a number of countries, including Australia, India , China , most of Europe and South America voted in favour.
- All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
- Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
- Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
- No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
- No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
- Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.
- All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.
- Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.
- No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.
- Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.
A number of Islamic countries originally also voted in favour of the declaration (whereas Israel did not), however, since the Eighties they have declared that the UDOHR contradicts Sharia Law (No surprises there, having your right hand chopped off for adultery is a violation of articles 2 and 5 , for example.)
“In 1982, the Iranian representative to the United Nations, Said Rajaie-Khorassani, said that the Declaration was “a secular understanding of the Judeo-Christian tradition” which could not be implemented by Muslims without conflict with Sharia.“
“What needs to be pointed out to those who uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be the highest, or sole, model, of a charter of equality and liberty for all human beings, is that given the Western origin and orientation of this Declaration, the “universality” of the assumptions on which it is based is – at the very least – problematic and subject to questioning. Furthermore, the alleged incompatibility between the concept of human rights and religion in general, or particular religions such as Islam, needs to be examined in an unbiased way.“
Interesting that countries like China or India have also signed up and last time I checked they were not Western countries, however, their spiritual traditions like Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism would be very much in accordance with the declaration of human rights, therefore refuting that it is a Western concept.
Of course every country is guilty of acting against the declaration of human rights, human nature being what it is.
What follows on Wikipedia is a good example of moral relativism :
A strong argument can be made that the current formulation of international human rights constitutes a cultural structure in which western society finds itself easily at home … It is important to acknowledge and appreciate that other societies may have equally valid alternative conceptions of human rights.”
What rights are we talking about here? The right to kill unbelievers and apostates? The right to hurt, oppress and subjugate women in the name of religion and law? the right to imprison and torture people for private transgressions like “adultery” or marrying a person your family did not choose?
Why not the right to eat people and sacrifice babies for “Satanists”? Why not the right to rape 5 year olds for paedophiles?
Of course moral relativism in many ways is a good thing, as it allows people to express their individuality, creativity and culture.But when take to extremes, moral relativism becomes a license for harm, torture and murder.
While on the same day yesterday, The age published two stories on Muslim issues but seemed to fail to understand any connection between the two stories. Do you guys even read your own paper? Of course it didn’t help that a ugly caricature of Tony Abbott in Speedos with a soccer ball was between the two stories discouraging any intelligent eye from moving in that path.
These publications took an interest in the mega mosque story.
Funny you didn’t care when they were building a mosque in Bendigo, but on your own doorstep, you did.
We call that NIMBY, Not In My Back Yard. Maybe you should all care more about this country, not just your own house price or debt to equity ratio.
Any statement from an Islamic body cannot be relied on,
as Islam demands that all Muslims must lie in order to advance the cause of Islam.
This practice is called:
Where is the money coming from?
In other news… Denice Cosgrove WorkSafe Victoria still at large
Now that’s what I call journalism…
there is a little thing at the bottom of the page called ‘comments’ with a number next to it, if you read that section you might get some more context before you run off half cocked, I think you have that feature on some of your articles, we have it on all of our articles. And yes we moderate comments also.
The same corporation that is funding the planned mosque in Bendigo has plans for even larger mosques in Melbourne suburbs. The 200 muslims in Bendigo clearly cannot afford a $3 million dollar mosque (especially considering the notoriously high unemployment rate among Muslims), the money comes from foreign corporates. Islam is fascism and as Mussolini said Fascism is corporatism.
A mosque in Bendigo is no different to a McDonalds in Tecoma. A foreign corporate imposing its will and beliefs where it is clearly not wanted.
Bendigo $3,000,000 Mosque, 200 Muslims, 430+ objections, Council approves it and then voted out on a no confidence motion.
There has been some confusion about what Islam really is, I’m glad we have now cleared up most of the misconceptions in a simple info graphic.
Remember Islam cannot be defended in a discussion because Islam requires it followers to lie about what Islam really is to protect the fascist scam that it is.
Muslim trying to tell you about Islam? Just say this one word and see then start to sweat.
Taqiyya is the act of lying to protect or promote Islam.
Bad for the economy,
no Muslim majority nation has a GDP of over 1 billion dollars.
Probably some to do with the fact that Muslims have huge rates of unemployment and are among the least healthy people in any society. The violence theft and fraud doesn’t help either.
This isn’t a hate site,
this is a truth site,
you just hate the truth.
*If its not marked parody or mock and awe its the truth.
Bendigo City Councillors, despite overwhelming public opposition , approved the building of a mosque in Bendigo. This vote was followed by a vote of no confidence in the council (with quorum) and passed unanimously. City of Bendigo now operating illegally.

Facebook may be Viagra, but a blog is Cialis think about it.

In Islam its OK to lie to infidels about what Islam actually is, as long as it benefits Islam.
The firs steps towards a new middle eastern nation are being taken today, with Kurdistan beginning sales of oil to Turkey. The Turks have been paying quite high prices for oil lately, so there is at least one satisfied customer but the economic price is just one part of the cost to consider. Iraq is clearly not happy as they feel it is their oil. Kurds might argue Iraq only ever existed (and was created) so that the British could get control of oil and have it delivered to the port of Basra.
The geopolitics of oil now have new factor in the complex equations of diplomacy. If Turkey Joins the EU there will be an oil state on the doorstep of the EU. Could a pipeline from Iran to Europe now be more feasible. Will Kurdish people flood to the newly cemented state?
Just like a new service station opening up in your town or city there are always flow on effect. Everything in the Middle east just got a little more interesting.
Good Luck to the Kurdish people.
Where is Kurdistan?
Kurds already control a region in Northern Iraq, but may want significant parts of Turkey, part of the border region of Iran and even some of Syria and Armenia.
With access to the oil trade some of these wishes may be fulfilled, but like any transaction is there a willing seller, and what will be the price?
