(GR) means ('Peace be upon him and may God exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection’) and is a note of respect to be included everytime the name of the Prophet (GR) is being used.
In this paper I only briefly discussed and made notes concerning Islam religions. But there are at least twelve other religions worlwide that could have been
included here. Perhaps in an other paper! For now what I am asking here includes all religions, people of all faiths, and everyone else.
Human rights represent an ideal and a supreme goal which can give meaning to life in society. Throughout the history of humanity, the rights of human
beings have been defined and enshrined with reference to the values of the dignity of each individual and of freedom, equality and justice. These values are universal.
Global Community has accepted and enshrined them into its own ways of behaving and dealing with all peoples. Cultures and societies differ so much
that their expression takes varying forms, but diversity does not affect the foundation of inalienable values constituted by human and Earth rights. Each individual is
recognized as a representative of humankind. Human dignity resides in each of us, and this dignity must be recognized and respected by all.
How meaningful is the right to life or to participation in political life if poverty, gender inequality, destitution and epidemics prevent individuals from enjoying freedom of
movement, freedom to vote, to marry and so on? The developing countries are having a harder time than others to achieve the exercise of global rights on a lasting
basis, with the problems of economic globalization presenting new challenges. We must therefore beware of enforcing economic rights alone to the detriment of individual
civil rights and the rights of all individuals to decide their own fate and the future of their country, their political rights. The universality of human rights recognizes the right
of all individuals to participate in the cultural life of their community and of other country, to receive education and training, and to be informed.
Global Community is aware that traditional customs and standards
could burden the sustainability of all life on Earth. They could burden
Earth society or any society forever, and holds individuals in a straitjacket.
We cannot accept that. No one can! There are choices to be made and you
must make them. Cultures can develop and can go on developing. Even religious
beliefs may evolve. We are living now, and we are able to
create these changes. We are at least as bright, most certainly brighter,
than the people who were living thousand of years ago.
As far as
the Global Community is concerned, cultural and religious
differences cannot be a reason or an excuse or a pretext for not respecting
human rights and, most importantly, ecological rights. Quite
the contrary, all kinds of cultures may promote human rights and especially
cultural rights. They are different in their achievements, but they are
equal in dignity where they are expressions of freedom. At any time
or in any given place, men, women and children use their culture to invent
new ways of making human rights a living reality. Diversity enriches us
if it respects the dignity of each individual, and if it takes account
of human rights as a whole.
On January 7, 2015, the question was what brought up so much hate in the world so that some people felt that there was no justice, and they had to do justice themselves. Horrible crimes were committed. Why have leaders of nations of the West got together in France to accuse and blame "terrorists" for the killing of 12 people in the HQ of Charlie Hebdo? What was the cause of the hate of the gunmen?
What was the cause of the hate shown by politicians from the Western nations?
Why have law legislators and politicians in the Western nations never done laws that could have prevented the massacre? Why any of them never had enough courage and do their jobs as leaders? Why have human rights activists never help promoting new laws, and never thought that there is such thing in society as a Scale of Global Rights that can differentiate between what is a truly important global right and what is a less important right.
A global right is truly important when it affects significantly the survival of life on our planet. Certainly the security of all people on our planet is more important then the rights of five cartoonists from Charlie Hebdo (Charb, Cabu, Honore, Tignous, and Wolinski)
making fun of the Prophet Muhammad (GR)(GR). It is important enough to discuss this issue because it affects the survival of life on our planet, and because so many politicians of the Western world met in France for the funeral of the 12 victims of the massacre to blame "terrorism", a completely off the board and abstract word that means something only to the proclamation of their own personal leadership. That leadership was wrong! Politicians got it wrong in purpose, and now they proclaim righteousness is on their side, and they must do more to subject everyone to more strict social rules and ways of doing things in our world. That is wrong as well! Politicians never learn unless someone put the writing right on their faces.
The reality is that not only politicians are missing the point but they are missing the point in purpose. They dont want to admit that what the world needs and wants is Justice. Justice for the massacre! Justice for the victims of the victims: the Prophet Muhammad (GR)(GR) and all Islam followers. They demand Justice for insults made to their religious leader and Islam. Justice is what is needed here. Politicians have made clear to the world that there will be no Justice but more hate, less liberty, and more restrictions on innocent people, and more checking of personal and social activities. All the wrong actions telling the two billion people who believe in God and Islam that there will not be Justice for the insults made to the Prophet Muhammad (GR)(GR) and Islam.
It is time now, today, to reflect on what really happened on January 7 in France. It is time to make sense of this global event which affected global security and, therefore, the survival of all life on our planet. Certainly Global Community Ethic is our best start for understanding the event that day and what to do about it. The Scale of Global Rights will guide us in this process of finding the truth and apply Justice. Let us see Global Community perspective and vision of the world. Let us have Justice!
The following chapters were written to show a process pointing at the different aspects of the problem we are facing today. Truly all aspects are closely related and need to be understood.
