Islam -- Still A Religion of Violence

Although I generally have nothing in common with the International Humanist and Ethical Union, (since "humanism" is just code for "atheist"), I was glad to see them prodding the UN regarding the atrocities committed by muslims in the name of their religion. David Littman of the IHEU was attemptng to address the UN Sub-Commission on Human Rights to condemn killing in the name of religion, but was unable to complete his remarks due to interference by islamic representatives.

Littman was trying to point out that, while many in this country and around the world have been hoodwinked into thinking that islam is essentially a religion of peace, the fact is that high-ranking muslim clerics support and defend murder and suicide bombing. They take the view that suicide bombers are not apostate, but are good muslims, and that terror attacks are permissible as part of islam.

As usual, we can expect no reaction from the UN. Once again, I would note that there is no reason for the US to continue to be in this organization. If the islamic UN states will not condemn terror in the name of their religion, we ought to demand their expulsion or withdraw from the UN ourselves. We are under the roof of a building in New York City playing nice with countries that covertly rejoice over 9/11.
