UN Tells Britain To Treat Muslims Better

From the UK’s Telegraph:

Treat Muslims better, Britain told by UN

Britain has been told by the United Nations to challenge negative public views towards the Muslim community.

By Chris Irvine

The nine-member human rights committee composed of legal experts, said it was concerned “negative public attitudes towards Muslim members of society” continued to be allowed in Britain.

It recommended the Government “should take energetic measures to eliminated this phenomenon and ensure that authors of such acts of discrimination on the basis of religion are adequately deterred and sanctioned.”

The committee also expressed concern over the Government’s plan to extend detention of terrorist suspects without trial from 28 to 42 days.

Those suspected of terrorism should be promptly charged and taken to court within a reasonable period of time, while their lawyers should have access to the evidence against them.

The committee contains members from Britain, Ireland, Australia, Benin, Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, Mauritius and Sweden – all are expected to be independent from their governments…

So far no word on the UN telling Muslims what to do.

Of course the UN and Muslims seem to be on the same page:

It recommended the Government “should take energetic measures to eliminated this phenomenon and ensure that authors of such acts of discrimination on the basis of religion are adequately deterred and sanctioned.”

Who needs freedom?

Not when you have the UN.
