In its recently concluded June session, the UN Human Rights Council ruled that any references to Islamic Shar’ia law are prohibited in the council chamber. Even outgoing UN rights chief Louise Arbour, whoÂ more than onceÂ sought to appease the UN’s anti-blasphemy squads, expressed her concern.
It all started when the heroicÂ David Littman, undaunted byÂ maliciousÂ attempts to expel him from the UN, tried to deliver a speech on violence against women and what Islamic scholars can do to prevent it. The Egyptian representative interrupted repeatedly and challenged the council president.Â “Regardless of the result of the vote â€” I couldn’t care less if I will win or lose this vote â€” my point is that Islam will not be crucified in this council!”
The president gave in:Â “Statements should refrain from making judgments or evaluations of a particular religion. . . I can promise that at the next evaluation of a religious creed, law, or document, I will interrupt the speaker and we’ll go on to the next one.”
