Jeramayakova nails it;
...."human rights" is being cheapened and exploited to mean anything that does not conform to limitless demands made against state and society. It inculcates entitlement, grandiosity, and resentment where none need be permitted to take hold - and which can easily be manipulated in demagogic ways.
"Human rights" is effective when making moral and political cases against regimes that don't permit liberal (Western) freedoms to being with. Making such claims against governments that are already liberal and Western is of such a minor scale as to be almost laughable."
Coming to America.
Scores of Muslim inmates at a high security prison are set to launch a multi-million pound claim for compensation after they were offered ham sandwiches during the holy month of Ramadan.
They say their human rights were breached when they were given a special nightly menu - drawn up to recognise their specific dietary requirements - by officers at HMP Leeds last month.
More than 200 Muslim inmates at the jail are believed to have been offered the meat which is strictly forbidden by Islam.
The sandwich was one of three options on the menu card which was created to cover the religious festival during which Muslims are required to fast during daylight.
A fookin choice? Prisoners are given a choice. I don't give my kids a choice. Coretta wrote, "these people gave up there rights when they committed a crime they have no rights in jail now."
They later complained to prison officers on duty but say they were told that the menus had been printed in error.
Yet when they opened the sandwiches, having ordered cheese, some claim they were still filled with boiled ham.
They are now launching legal action, insisting that their human rights were breached and could each be entitled to up to £10,000 in compensation if they win their case at court.
One Muslim inmate, a 28-year-old who was serving a 16-week sentence for driving whilst disqualified, said: 'When I opened my meal that night I found I'd been given a ham sandwich. I'd asked for cheese.
'It was a breach of my human rights and I want compensation.'
