How low can the UN go? (updated)

Yesterday, the UN Human Rights Commission pushed through a resolution
demanding a global prohibition on the public defamation of religion. Lest there be any doubt about which religion they are concerned with, the only religion mentioned in the resolution is Islam.
Scott, at the Town Commons site, sees the UN as doing the work of Wahhabis, essentially captured by a faction of radical Islam. He links this to the sweep of Islamic history.
If this is what we can expect from UN as reformed, it needs to be defunded by the U.S. In the Senate hearings for his confirmation as the new U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Zalmay Khalilzad has argued against defunding the UN but has also stated that the UN faces a "mortal threat" if it fails to reform.

I agree on the issue of reforms, but disagree as to the funding issue. The UN must be defunded until the Human Rights Commission and other ancillary organizations are taken from the hands of Islamic nations and their functions made to comport with reality.

I don't know about Scott, but I look forward to Israel bringing to the UN Human Rights Commission some of MEMRI's tapes of the excoriation of Jews as apes and monkeys that appears on Saudi TV.

I was less surprised when reading, in How low can the UN go? about suggested “global prohibition on the public defamation of religion” than I was some half a year ago when I discovered that a similar regulation already exists in Denmark – an “anti-blasphemy law.”

Back than, I reacted with a brief piece called “Blasphemy?”  which the pious (or is it politically correct?) UNers would greatly benefit from, and should take into account before voting on the extra-silly suggestion to shield religion from human thinking.
