Christopher Hitches sums up the triad of mentalities that comprise Islamic fundamentalism: self-righteousness, self-pity and self-hatred.
In the Muslim world there is hardly a self. There the only human moments are stolen ones which leads to hypocrisy and ultimately self-righteousness.
In Islamic states, where Sharia law rules, it is impossible to say in public that because of Quranic fanaticism disease and illiteracy are rampant, agriculture and industry is primitive, at best, and nothing seems to work. It can only be said that because of a conspiracy among Crusaders and Zionists that Muslim people suffer.
Even within the borders of Canada and the United States there are many instances of "honour killings," female genital mutilation, the imposition of veiling on women and beatings of Muslim wives, daughters and sisters. The latent violence of these failed states have been exported to the west while the hysterical impoverished people there applaud the barbaric, self-destructive actions of the children they have raised.
Now the United Nations General Assembly wants to impose a ban on defaming religion in general and Islam in particular. The truth is irrelevant, if an aggrieved party is offended by criticism of Islam or Muhammad. For example to say that Islam is not a religion as such but a geo-political movement much like Nazism or Communism which should be considered fair comment would be punishable as blasphemy.
