A Saudi prince who works as one of that country’s foreign ministers told a gathering of the Non-Aligned Movement that we need laws to punish blasphemy all over the world. Because it’s a “misuse” of freedom to criticize religion (well, his religion) and it leads to violence.
Deputy Foreign Minister Prince Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah on Wednesday called for tough action by governments against those who misuse freedom of expression to attack divine religions and Prophets.
Addressing the 17th Non-Aligned Movement Conference in Algiers, he said such provocative actions were threatening global peace and stability.
“Saudi Arabia emphasizes its commitment to the movement’s principles to face the rapidly changing regional and international situations,” the prince told the gathering.
He added: “The international law is violated and the principles of human rights and freedom of expression are exploited to insult religions and their symbols for political purposes.”
The Kingdom cautions that the escalation of this grave and massive violations threatens world peace. Therefore, the Kingdom calls on assessing and reviewing the role and effectiveness of the movement in protecting and promoting security and stability in the world.
I would kindly invite this scion from one of the world’s most corrupt and feudal families to shove his religious fascism up his well-fed ass.
