Saudi King urges UN action against religious insults
Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz on Saturday demanded a UN resolution condemning insults on monotheistic religions after a
low-budget film produced in the US sparked deadly protests last month.
"I demand a UN resolution that condemns any country or group that
insults religions and prophets," he said during a meeting at his palace
with religious figures and heads of hajj delegations in the Mina valley
where pilgrims were performing final rituals of hajj.
"It is our duty and that of every Muslim to protect Islam and defend the prophets."
A low-budget film produced in the US, Innocence of Muslims, triggered
a wave of deadly anti-American violence last month across the Muslim
world targeting US symbols ranging from embassies and schools to fast
Saudi Arabia had threatened to block YouTube in the kingdom if Google
did not respond to a request to deny access to the video footage of the
film. YouTube then extended its restrictions on the video to Saudi
The king also called on Saturday for the "unity of the Islamic nation
(and) rejecting division to face the nation's enemies" as he urged for
dialogue among Muslims.
I've got a request for the King, and the U.N. How about they use their powers of friendship to stop MUSLIMS from KILLING everyone, everyday, everywhere? I'm just thinking that the thoughtless boobs around the world, might quit slandering Muslims if said Muslims will quit killing them.
And the King knows he's full of crap as a Christmas goose too on the whole 'video caused the killings in Benghazi' BS. He's following that line of crap because the last thing His Majesty wants is a strong, Republican in the WH. One that might call him to account for his support of Wahhabist Imams.
But, Allah forbid anything be asked of the Muslim world.
