U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan scolded the media on Thursday for continuing to publish cartoons lampooning the Prophet Mohammad and defended an attempt by Islamic nations to have a new U.N. human-rights council address religious defamation. Story here
Is this dhimmi living in Dar Al-Islam insisting we live there too? I have never heard Kofi Enema ever speak to the Jew hating cartoons or editorials or Christian bashing that goes on daily in the Muslim world. This hypocrite has GOT TO GO.
Islamic nations to have a new U.N. human-rights council address religious defamation.........now that is precious. THEY WROTE THE BOOK here.
Would love to know who John Bolton would like to see in that spot.
Annan also said he had no knowledge about U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's assertion on Wednesday that Iran and Syria had gone out of their way "to inflame sentiments and to use this to their own purposes."
This spineless corrupt snake is judging Condi?
Hey Kofi, you are such a tool. Why don't you ge a gander at Taheri's piece in the New York Post

A closer look at the row, however, shows that the whole rigmarole was launched by Sunni-Salafi groups in Europe and Asia, with Ahmadinejad and his Syrian vassal, President Bashar al-Assad, belatedly playing catch-up. God had nothing to do with it.
To see how the whole thing was manufactured to serve precise political ends, consider the chronology of events:
The cartoons were published last September and, for more than three months, caused no ripples outside small groups of Salafi militants in Denmark.
In December, a group of Danish Muslim militants filled their suitcases with photocopies of the cartoons and embarked on a tour of Muslim capitals. Read it all.
Talking about hypocritical. Meanwhile over at the Egyptian blog, Rantings of a Sandmonkey here,
Freedom For Egyptians reminded me why the cartoons looked so familiar to me: they were actually printed in the Egyptian Newspaper Al Fagr back in October 2005. I repeat, October 2005, during Ramadan, for all the egyptian muslim population to see, and not a single squeak of outrage was present. Al Fagr isn't a small newspaper either: it has respectable circulation in Egypt, since it's helmed by known Journalist Adel Hamoudah. Looking around in my house I found the copy of the newspaper, so I decided to scan it and present to all of you to see.
