“The delegate is surely in total contradiction to Dabbashi, his statement is not a merely attack on homosexuality, but on the very basis of human rights – what it means to be human.”
That’s exactly the point. The UN Declaration is about UNIVERSAL human rights.
This was rejected by most islamic nations in 1990, with the Cairo Declaration. Islam does NOT treat all humans equally (under sharia law, slavery is legal).
We’ve not heard the end of this. Expect to see the islamic nations (probably in league with various backward nations) attempt to remove all human rights protection from gay people.
Ah, I se… so what threatens “the continuation of the human race” isn’t Climate Change, the wholesale destruction of habitats, oceanic pollution, loss of biodiversity and the threat of nuclear war… it’s 6% of 7bn people… that is, about 42,000,000 people.
But the subtext is not funny.. becayuse presumably the solution is, wait for it….
What an abominable, putrid, sub-human parasite!
I see it didn’t take long for the Arab Spring to turn into the Islamic Winter.
More of a “Blizzard” than a “Winter” — at least for most of the winter, one is able to see clearly. In a blizzard we are blinded to what is right in front of us.
And it will soon turn into a new Islamic ice age. All culture and difference will be frozen.
It’s great to see human rights in Lybia defended by someone like Waleed.
The ‘delegate’ needs to be removed, obviously since he was expressing his ‘own’ opinion on Human Rights….he is naturally unfit for the position he occupies as evidenced by his remarks….really sad after a revolution that people such as this still feel so ‘backward’ when freedom for all becons…..
The delegate is only saying what he is instructed to do by his government. Libya has no reason to remove him since this is what they want him to say. The root of the problem is in Tripoli not at the UN.
