Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff Takes on Islamophobia in UN Speech

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is quite impressive, she is the leader of one the largest emerging economies and nations in the world, and her strong condemnation of Islamophobia in the West in her recent UN Speech has not gone unnoticed.

Here is the full video of her speech, (her remarks about Islamophobia begin at 10:40):

“Also as my capacity as President of a country that houses millions and millions of people of Muslim background and persuasion, that I state for the record from this podium, we very strongly condemn the escalation in Islamophobic prejudice in Western countries. Brazil is one of the high profile players in the generous initiative titled, “The Alliance of Civilizations,” originally convened by the Turkish government.” –Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff

  1. Muslims, always the victims

  2. Alliance of civilizations? Does that mean the Turks are going to quit killing and persecuting their minorities? The Kurds for example.

  3. Turks are not killing innocent Kurds. They are at war with the PKK, a terrorist orgnization. The PKK caims it is fighting for the Kurds, but not all Kurds agree with the PKK.

  4. There’s a lot of that in muslim places.

  5. Hilmi,

    “Turks are not killing innocent Kurds. They are at war with the PKK, a terrorist orgnization.” so there as been no collateral damage in this war? no innocent kurds have been killed. the turks must have some seriously percise weapons. are they only figting hand to hand, with swords??????? what happened to the other kurdish rebel group? the PDK??? so why is it that muslims “the religion of peace” can’t get along in muslim majority lands? strange don’t you think.

  6. No Jane that would be the Jews…not the Muslims….:) or maybe you are the real victim because of your obvious ignorance. It’s too bad that your society felt it not worth educating you about the history of the Ummah of Islam and the great history but its ok..:you benefit every day from Muslim contributions to the world every day. Maybe one day you will take the time to educate yourself….at least one can hope……:)I

  7. jews aren’t always the victims.

    just like muslims aren’t, especially where they are the majority.

    aaishah,

    no word on why the churches were vandalized by the ummah in senegal? is that part of the great history you speak off?

  8. She is fighting the good fight!!!

  9. Go Brazil!

  10. So many ignorant arguments made on this thread by internet “scholars” who read a few articles and maybe one book…all of a sudden feel they have enough information about Islamic history and the middle east conflicts in order to criticize and blame. Yea I know I’m making an assumption…but from the content of the comments on this thread I think its a valid assumption.

  11. Very nice video. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Yay for tolerance and peace! and recognizing Palestine :)

  13. @Sis Aaisha. Don’t bother to combat the non muslims in dialogue that they have no knowledge of. We both know that they are not for the betterment of muslims while true Islam is for the betterment of the world. They choose to stay ignorant about muslims because one who throws all their sins on another man never have to worry about being victims. They need to place blame on everybody but themselves. They don’t admit that the greatest acts of genocide have been done by and are being done by non muslims. Placing blame on the muslims has been done since as the early 80’s. While placing blame on muslims that act out in anger and violence, they dont explain that this is not behavoir of a Muslim and that these people are a small majority who end up being the face for Islam. While only 1,000’s may act out in violence, the world contains 1.7 billion muslims. Fact: no Muslim has walked into a church and murdered non but a non Muslim has walker into a sihk temple mistaken for a mosque and murdered people he thought were Muslim. Fact: muslims are not burning down churches in the south. Non muslims have burnt down a mosque in Tenn.

  14. Hasim,

    “Don’t bother to combat the non muslims in dialogue that they have no knowledge of.” what is it that we kuffar have noknowledge of?
    “We both know that they are not for the betterment of muslims while true Islam is for the betterment of the world.” you mean to better the world by rioting? fire bombing?
    “They choose to stay ignorant about muslims because one who throws all their sins on another man never have to worry about being victims.” that makes no sense? how can you “throw” your sins on another.
    “They need to place blame on everybody but themselves.” well i didn’t fly planes into the wtc. didn’t blow up a train on 3/11, bomb buses and the subway on 7/7.
    “They don’t admit that the greatest acts of genocide have been done by and are being done by non muslims.” who doesn’t admit that?
    “Placing blame on the muslims has been done since as the early 80′s.” well when your attack our embassy and take our people hostage for 444 days, who should be blamed?
    “While placing blame on muslims that act out in anger and violence, they dont explain that this is not behavoir of a Muslim and that these people are a small majority who end up being the face for Islam.” oh, the old, they aren’t muslims if they are “sinning”. therefore no muslim has ever done anything wrong.
    “While only 1,000′s may act out in violence, the world contains 1.7 billion muslims.” dude, obviously not all muslims are going to riot. first old men and women generally don’t riot. nor do children, or women for the most part. also there are only embassies in a few cities throughout the islamic world. but the action of 1000s are most certainly backed by the sentiment of millions.
    “Fact: no Muslim has walked into a church and murdered non” what are you taking about? they threw a grenade in a church the other day. FACT: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-19776747
    “but a non Muslim has walker into a sihk temple mistaken for a mosque and murdered people he thought were Muslim.” you sure he mistook it for a mosque? i would wager he just didn’t like foriegners.
    “Fact: muslims are not burning down churches in the south. Non muslims have burnt down a mosque in Tenn.” true. no muslims have burned down churches in the south of america. but you do know muslims bomb and burn churches all the time in the “islamic” world. i think you might be the internet “scholar” the guy above speaks of?

    only thousands, yet you use the example of one to prove your point. can anyone say hypocrite?
