Muslim Leaders Call for Sharia Blasphemy Laws at UN

If only Muslim leaders could get as upset over honor killings, wife-beating, and terrorist attacks as they do over YouTube videos about Muhammad, the world would be a much better place.

(Reuters) - Muslim leaders were in unison at the United Nations this week arguing that the West was hiding behind its defense of freedom of speech and ignoring cultural sensitivities in the aftermath of anti-Islam slurs that have raised fears of a widening East-West cultural divide.

A video made in California depicting the Prophet Mohammad as a fool sparked the storming of U.S. and other Western embassies in many Islamic countries and a deadly suicide bombing in Afghanistan this month. The crisis deepened when a French magazine published caricatures of the Prophet.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said it was time to put an end to the protection of Islamophobia masquerading as the freedom to speak freely.

"Unfortunately, Islamophobia has also become a new form of racism like anti-Semitism. It can no longer be tolerated under the guise of freedom of expression. Freedom does not mean anarchy," he told the 193-nation U.N. General Assembly on Friday.

Egypt's newly elected Islamist president, Mohamed Mursi, voiced similar sentiments in his speech on Wednesday.

"Egypt respects freedom of expression, freedom of expression that is not used to incite hatred against anyone," he said. "We expect from others, as they expect from us, that they respect our cultural specifics and religious references, and not impose concepts or cultures that are unacceptable to us."

The Koran condemns itself 'out of its own mouth.' Here are 3 verses from the Bible that should always be used to discredit the whole Koran, as per Christ's instructions when dealing with any false doctrines.
These 3 verses easily defeated the arguments of Jesus' most cunning adversaries, showing that anyone can employ them to the same effect.

Starting with the Koran's well known self-refuting statements:

Let the people of the Gospel [Christian scriptures] judge according to what Allah has revealed therein. EVIL-DOERS ARE THOSE WHO DO NOT JUDGE ACCORDING TO ALLAH'S REVELATIONS. 5:47

Should I [Mohammed] seek a judge other than Allah when it is He who has revealed the Book [Christian and Jewish scriptures] for you with all of its precepts? THOSE TO WHOM WE GAVE THE SCRIPTURES KNOW THAT IT IS THE TRUTH REVEALED BY YOUR LORD. THEREFORE HAVE NO DOUBTS. 6:114-115

Proclaim what has been revealed to you from the Book of your Lord. NONE CAN CHANGE HIS WORDS. You shall find no refuge besides him. 18:27

This being the case, the commands in Mathew, as stated below, have ALL OF GOD'S AUTHORITY BEHIND THEM and therefore nullify any doctrine that is contrary to them.

"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?"
Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' [also in Deuteronomy 6:5]
"This is the first and great commandment.
"And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself.'* (since we are ALL made in God's image)[also in Leviticus 19:18]
ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.'" Mathew 22:36-40

"THEREFORE, WHATEVER YOU WANT MEN TO DO TO YOU, DO ALSO TO THEM, FOR THIS IS THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS." (a permanent and non-ngotiable command. An unmoving foundation, standard and reference for all other rules and regulations, for all of mankind, for all time, and by which mankind is to be governed and judged) Mathew 7:12

The Koran and Islam do not adhere to ALL of these commands at ALL TIMES, thus rendering the Koran and Islam false.

If any of the above truths were to be described as blasphemy by ANYONE, then they would be condemning themselves out of their own mouth and be guilty of blasphemy before God for trying to overide the authority of his commands.

*A neighbour is not just someone living next door, but anyone in our near vicinity at any time; as explained in Luke 10:25-37 where Jesus easily destroyed his opponent's cunning argument.

God's word is able to destroy, without effort, any high argument that is brought against it.

"Is not my word like a fire?" says the Lord, "And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?" Jer 23:29

What does the bill of rights have to do with Islam?

It's beyond ridiculous.
