Saudi Arabia Calls For Global Internet Censorship Body

Onymous Hero (910664) writes | about a year and a half ago

Censorship 1

Onymous Hero (910664) writes "Following the recent YouTube video "The Innocence of Muslims" and the subsequent Muslim violence, Saudi Arabia has stated that there is a “there is a crying need for international collaboration to address ‘freedom of expression’ which clearly disregards public order”. The World Telecommunications Policy Forum (a UN body) is the vehicle by which Saudi Arabia (and possibly other states) will try to use to implement a global set of internet content standards."

What Islam wants ... (1)

Taco Cowboy (5327) | about a year and a half ago | (#41628097)

What Islam wants is world domination.

And they will do _anything_ to achieve that, including a call to set up a global censorship body.

Of course, for start, they will ask for censorship to only the Internet.

But when they get that, they will demand for more...

Like not allowing females to wear bikinis, like not allowing girls to go to school, and so on ...

If the world capitulates, sooner or later, whether or not you are a Muslim, you will find yourself living in an Islamic planet.
