A recent decision by the United Nation’s (UN) Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) foreshadows an ominous future for free societies should Muslim entities like the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) achieve their goal of having "Islamophobia” defined internationally as a form of prejudice
Former German central bank board member Thilo Sarrazin has got himself in trouble with the UN, as the Turkish Union in Berlin-Brandenburg (Türkischer Bund in Berlin-Brandenburg or TBB) stated with satisfaction in an April 18, 2013, German-language press release. The spokesman of this German-Turkish interest group, Hilmi Kaya Turan, praised a February 26, 2013, "historic decision” by the CERD condemning Germany for not having prosecuted Sarrazin’s criticism of Arab and Turkish immigrants.

More books like this one are necessary if we are to wake up before things become too barbaric:
The film "A Clockwork Orange" - 1971, directed by Stanley Kubrick - is a dystopian tale of a criminal gang that excels in "ultra-violence". It has inspired journalist Laurent Obertone (pseudonym) for the title of "La France Orange mécanique".

Michael Stürzenberger is a well-known Islam critic in Germany, and was one of the honored guests at last summer’s Brussels Conference. His outspoken style and uncompromising attitude have made him — along with Politically Incorrect and Die Freiheit — persona non grata with the Bavarian government

Pamela Geller is a New York liberal, concerned about shariah law
Most Canadians don’t know who she is, but she did something for us that no Canadian did: She arranged for a proper gravestone for Aqsa Parvez, the teenaged Canadian girl murdered by her father and brother in a so-called honour killing in 2007.

"Unbiased"? The Muslim Brotherhood Channel? Are they kidding?
How does Qatar do it? How does Vogue let Qatar do it to it? "Playing it straight?" The Qatari Sharia Muslim Brotherhood Revolution? And who is this Lisa "Playing It straight into MB hands" Fletcher? To be sure, she got the glossy treatment in Vogue, swanning amid a Marc Jacobs' perfume ad (Daisy), breast cancer awareness, and Van Cleef & Arpels.
"Al Jazeera America" is thrilled to bits.
But what price Glossywood?
From an earlier post:
Qatar, after all, is a country Freedom House deems "not free" where, as reported in Freedom House's the 2012 Freedom of the Press Report, it is against the law for journalists to "criticize the Qatari government, the ruling family or Islam."
