U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday condemned as “offensively anti-Islamic” a Dutch lawmaker’s film that accuses the Koran of inciting violence.
Ban acknowledged efforts by the government of the Netherlands to stop the broadcast of the film, which was launched by Islam critic Geert Wilders over the Internet, and appealed for calm to those “understandably offended by it.”
“There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence,” Ban said in a statement. “The right of free expression is not at stake here.”
The film urges Muslims to tear out “hate-filled” verses from the Koran and starts and finishes with a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad with a bomb under his turban, accompanied by the sound of ticking.
What about all the films that have bashed Christianity? Or offended Jews? Why doesn’t the UN speak out against them?
Why didn’t the UN condemn Ian McKellen?
SIR Ian McKellen is so offended by the Bible’s anti-gay stance he makes a point of ripping out the relevant page every time he stays in a hotel room.
The openly homosexual actor, a longtime campaigner for gay rights, accepts he shouldn’t vandalise the Bible, but finds it difficult to contain his outrage at the contents of Leviticus 20:13 when he spots the holy book in hotels.
Many books and films trash Christians and Jews but the UN is silent on them. Is the UN only speaking out because it fears Muslims? Sounds like their attitudes are ‘Do as you please, but don’t piss off the Muslims or there will be Hell to pay.’
Pardon my German, but FUCK the UN! If you can’t treat all religions equally, then stay out of it!
