Tolerance
Tolerance is the ability or willingness to tolerate the existence of opinions or behaviour that one dislikes or disagrees with and is guided by the Golden rule:
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you*.
True Tolerance is limited by the rule of the law which is based on freedom, justice and equality.
Tolerance does not justify violence.
Tolerance does not justify people taking the law into their own hands.
Tolerance should not tolerate ideologies which criminalise freedom of speech and thought, such as the Apostasy and Blasphemy laws in Islam.
Like the murder of Charlie Hebdo journalists last year or Nahad Hattar who was murdered yesterday in Jordan as he came out of the court. We should not tolerate such incidents in the OSCE states. These laws are choking freedom worldwide.
We cannot tolerate FGM
We cannot tolerate child marriage
We cannot tolerate women oppression and apartheid.
Tolerance without critical and analytic thinking is censorship and leads to suppression. Tolerance without truth and common sense leads to relativism and an end to the rule of
law.
*A command based on words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount : “All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.” The Mosaic law contains a parallel commandment: “Whatever is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person.”

An Open Letter to Delegations to the United Nations regarding
Apostasy and Blasphemy Laws

Against Human Rights

Apostasy laws make it a criminal offense to change one’s religion. In doing so, they seek to deprive individuals of the ability to choose what to believe about the Divine. The capacity for moral choice is what makes people human; it is part of our essential common human nature, upon which the very idea of human rights is based. Restricting the freedom to choose one’s religion, and to change it, is an assault on the very core of human nature. Apostasy laws cannot change human nature; people will always be compelled to seek the truth about questions of ultimacy. But apostasy laws bring immense suffering by persecuting men and women—simply for exercising their freedom of conscience, that is, for being human.

Apostasy laws are intrinsically wrong, but they also have negative social and political consequences everywhere they are in force. They create instability and inspire violence. They create conflict with minority communities. They bring shame in the international community, tarnishing the reputation of states.

Blasphemy laws make perceived “insults” to religions illegal, and can make it a crime even to question religious doctrines. Such laws are an assault on intellectual and moral freedom, and the freedom of expression, which all people possess and which are essential parts of their humanity; they are freedoms that are protected under international law. Blasphemy laws make the state the judge of truth, and are thus often used to persecute political opponents. Blasphemy laws are often arbitrarily applied, leading to tragic persecutions and the murder and execution of innocent people.


Against International Law

The United Nations Human Rights Committee has ruled that apostasy and blasphemy laws are inconsistent with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR):

The Committee observes that the freedom to "have or to adopt" a religion or belief necessarily entails the freedom to choose a religion or belief, including the right to replace one's current religion or belief with another or to adopt atheistic views, as well as the right to retain one's religion or belief. Article 18.2 bars coercion that would impair the right to have or adopt a religion or belief, including the use of threat of physical force or penal sanctions to compel believers or non-believers to adhere to their religious beliefs and congregations, to recant their religion or belief or to convert. Policies or practices having the same intention or effect, such as, for example, those restricting access to education, medical care, employment or the rights guaranteed by article 25 and other provisions of the Covenant, are similarly inconsistent with article 18.2. The same protection is enjoyed by holders of all beliefs of a non-religious nature. (General Comment 22)

Prohibitions of displays of lack of respect for a religion or other belief system, including blasphemy laws, are incompatible with the Covenant, except in the specific circumstances envisaged in article 20, paragraph 2, of the Covenant. Such prohibitions must also comply with the strict requirements of article 19, paragraph 3, as well as such articles as 2, 5, 17, 18 and 26. Thus, for instance, it would be impermissible for any such laws to discriminate in favor of or against one or certain religions or belief systems, or their adherents over another, or religious believers over non-believers. Nor would it be permissible for such prohibitions to be used to prevent or punish criticism of religious leaders or commentary on religious doctrine and tenets of faith. (General Comment 34)



A Shameful Record

Nineteen (19) UN member states criminalize apostasy, and in 12 of those states, apostasy is punishable by the death penalty. Other typical punishments for apostasy include the annulment of marriages of apostates, and presenting inheritances.

As of 2012, almost 25 percent of countries worldwide had some form of blasphemy laws or policies.


A Way Forward

As nongovernmental organizations promoting the freedom of religion, we are proposing an international dialogue among nations and United Nations experts that could show the way toward the abolishment of apostasy and blasphemy laws. We seek your ideas and your support.

Terrorists and Jihadist are War Criminals
Armies and soldiers are always under scrutiny to follow rules of engagements.
Why are the terrorist and jihadist are exempted from this scrutiny and persecution for their atrocities?
They belong to an army and a state even if they are not recognised IS, Qaida or Taliban or Bakoharam.
The are committing crimes against humanity and genocide..
Murdering civilians indiscriminate and committing war crimes against them, raping torturing,using human shields, enslaving them, crucifying and beheading children,  civilian women and men. They are engaged in ethnic and religious cleansing. 
They are using child soldiers
They torture prisoners of war and bar them from medical treatment, and keep them under inhuman conditions, and execute them in cold blooded for no crime.
They need to be tried they need to be hunted for the the atrocities they committed.
Why should we give them immunity or excuse they are war Criminals?

Does the Church betray the christian converts from Islam?

Does the Human Rights groups turn a blind eye to the atrocities committed to the ones who abandon Islam?

Does the International Community deny that Islamic apostasy and blasphemy laws are violation to human rights?

If not…

Why is the world is silence about apostasy and blasphemy laws in Islam?
Why is Asia Bibi still in prison in Pakistan?
Why are Raif Badawa and Hamza Kashgari forgotten in Saudi Arabia?
Why are atheists, converts and non-muslims in muslim lands massacred?
Why are their places of worship desecrated?
Why are apostate and blasphemers beheaded?

Why are converts from islam denied existence in Islamic states?
Why is the Church not standing up internationally for them to get their civil rights?
Why countries like Jordan, Morocco, Iraq and Malaysia do not allow converts from Islam to practise their faith?
Why are nothing is done to stop the execution of free thinkers and atheist like Charlie Hebdo and the Bangladeshi bloggers?

Where is freedom of speech?
Where is humanity?
Where is freedom of thought, conscience and belief?
Where is justice?
While over 1.5 billion are oppressed and not allowed to abandon Islam.
While in 12 countries there is death sentence.
While in the rest of the world non state actors are commissioned to carry the execution.
While 1.5 billion muslims are under death threats if they renounce Islam or it’s laws.

‪#‎Brussels‬ The terrorist in Brussels died filled with hatred. Jesus died in Jerusalem out of love. The night before Jesus died he declared: “This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.” And then he portrayed servant leadership by taking towel, got down on his knees and washed the disciples’ feet. 
When Leonardo da Vinci worked on”The last supper”, he was bitter toward a fellow painter who had offended him. When he came to Judas he painted that fellow´s face as the face of Judas. When he came to paint the face of Christ, he struggled to get it right. He realized that the hate and bitterness he harbored was affecting his own ability to paint. So he went to that man and forgave him, then came back and changed the face of Judas. 
The suicide bombers Brussels screamed; ”Allah akbar” (God is greater) before killing themselves and ending the life of many other precious fellow human beings. No, the God they tried to portray is not great, but small, pathetic and morbid, without any power to transform people from the inside and out. 
Jesus is the “image of the invisible God”, writes Paul, a former terrorist himself. He struggled to find the right words to describe “the width and length and height and depth of Christ's love”. It was the attractive life and love of Christ that transformed the antic world. It still is! 
The terrorists in Brussels portrayed a grotesque picture of God. Da Vinci had to leave his hatred in order to paint a picture of God that the world could receive. We need to do the same!
Happy Easter!

#Brussel Islamic Jihadist & terrorists
We need to dismiss the myth that there is lone wolfs and lone cells. It is an international net work of cells and individuals.
We see it very clearly in the ideology they have, the training they got & where.
They act like Mafia and organised crime. They have clean & dirty guys.
The dirty are the ones do the dirty work ”criminals”
The clean are the ones who do the logistic & resourcing. “money, weapons and recruiting”
These need to be targeted not only the ones who do the dirty work.
We need to target the countries which act as their fair heaven for the terrorists and do laundry for their recourses.

The situation of Christians in Iraq and Syria continue to be volatile.
We are thankful for the way EU and & US who have acknowledged that what the Islamic State committed against Yazieds, Shia, Kurds & Christians in Iraq & Syria is Genocide.
We plead with the EU & US with the International Community to take steps to repatriate the victims to their homes, restore to them their properties, help them to rebuild their villages and cities insure their safety & security & grantee their full civil right as citizens.
Also the International community must make sure to bring the perpetrators of the Genocide to Justice.
There is no closure without justice & acknowledgement of atrocities.
There is no reconciliation without truth, remorse & mercy.

While Westerns Christians continue having intellectual exercise and debate protecting Islam
Converts from Islam to Christianity remain vulnerable under Islamic law, and no one says anything.
While the debate go on converts are murdered imprisoned tortured but no one care.
While the debate go on 1.3 Billion Muslims remain without freedom to change belief
They face death sentence torture and imprisonment and oppression under Islamic law but the debate goes on.
They are left alone to face their fate while the debate go on.
No one stands for their rights
but the debate goes on
When converts speak out they are criticized. Their cry of pain is not heard.
On whom will they rely if their family of God does not stand with them?
How will they feel when their family of God forsake them while the debate goes on.
Your brother Kamal
