Islams new assault on human rights.

After giving up on its last attempt to create a blasphemy model on the the 2009 Irish Blasphemy Law.   The religion of "amputated pieces" is taking another shot at killing free thought.
After the Organization of Islamic Cooperation gave up its call for an international blasphemy law the Arab League took up the cause. Late October, head of the Arab League Nabil Elaraby, spoke at the UN Security Council during a debate on Syria and called international to criminalize blasphemy.

Citing the "Innocence of Muslims" video, Elaraby likened the need for blasphemy to the need for laws prohibiting physical violence.
"While we fully reject such actions that are not justifiable in any way, we would like to ring the warning bell, we are warning that offending religions, faiths and symbols is indeed a matter that threatens in international peace and security now."
Other members of the Arab League have made similar calls, including  Mohammad Morsi and the Saudi King Abdullah.
King Abdullah reportedly said "I demand a UN resolution that condemns any country or group that insults religions and prophets, it is our duty and that of every Muslim to protect Islam and defend the prophets."

Not content to nobble the minds of the entire planet the Muslim Brotherhood seeks to reduce the status of women to that which has not been seen in the US in 180 years.  Describing their general approach, "family expert" Osama Yehia Abu Salama said "A woman needs to be confined within a framework that is controlled by the man of the house," Even if a wife were beaten by her husband, he advised, “Show her how she had a role in what happened to her.” Mr. Abu Salama added, “If he is to blame, she shares 30 percent or 40 percent of the fault.”

According to a statement released by the Muslim Brotherhood, marital rape should not be grounds for a legal or criminal complaint by the wife.

The position statements appear to support long standing doctrine of the Muslim Brotherhood. Such restrictioms are the cause of tension in the traditionally secular Egypt.

I say, Any 54 year old man that rapes a 9 year old girl and flees on a winged horse is not a perfect man no matter how many racist misogynist fan boys he's got. and I can say this because I live in a country the values free expression. In Saudi Arabia, Hamza Kashgari faces the death penalty for tweeting "There are many things I like about you and many things I don't understand. I would not bow to you but would shake your hand as an equal." and "It's impossible for women to go to hell, it is impossible to go there twice." Hamza's case may result is release but only thanks to extensive international pressure. The real tragedy is the that of those who never get the attention of the international community. Especially in Iran where executions have escalated in recent years.
More recently violent protests in Bangladesh have led to two murders of secular bloggers.

It is the mark of bad ideas, that their defence must come with violence.
