Kiss Off, Abdullah!

Gulf News

Riyadh: A resolution calling for the enactment of an international pact to forbid religions from being defamed or insulted as well as their symbols, leaders and prophets has been voted out by the Saudi Shoura (Consultative Council).

“the Ministry of Foreign Affairs shall work in coordination with Arab and Islamic groups and others at the United Nations to draft an international pact for respecting religions, their symbols and leaders, and prohibit insulting them in any way.”

The vote  was  77:33. Why? Because it would involve reciprocity.

“Some consider Buddhism, Qadianism and Baha’ism as religions. Can we make it obligatory for Muslims to respect these faiths and avoid criticising them?” 

Loyal readers of my blog posts will recall  Tolerance Must Be Reciprocal. Those who have not read it should take this opportunity to do so. If you read it but don’t remember much, a refresher course is in order.

Now comes King Abdullah, extending the hand of false friendship. He is calling for a dialogue.
From  Associated Press

“The idea is to ask representatives of all monotheistic religions to sit together with their brothers in faith and sincerity to all religions as we all believe in the same God,” the king told delegates to a seminar titled “Culture and the Respect of Religions.”

International agreement to enforce traditional family structure & morality?  Yeah, right.  Respect of religions? As in 9:30?

And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!

If I owned an ass, I would not let the King kiss it.
