Comments: International law on speech restrictions?

BTW, I forgot to add in the original post -- where the UN mouthpiece says Their [the Danish government's] uncompromising defense of a Freedom of Speech without limits or restrictions ... -- this is patently absurd on the face of it. NO freedom, speech included, is "without limit or restriction." And that's not what Denmark (or more specifically the paper in question) was arguing anyway. They were merely arguing what any paper worth its salt would do: The right to not only freedom of speech but press in printing a controversial -- yes -- cartoon but one with a clear political and social message.

Is this Doodoo guy (heh heh) on record condemning the anti-Semitic children's textbooks that are in schools all over the Islamic world? I'm guessing not, since the UN goes out of its way to condemn Israel but either ignores Islamic terror or blames it on the Israelis. Come on John Bolton, let's see an expression of outrage over the burning of national flags by Palestinians and their supporters as hateful provocation far worse than cartoons.
