Denmark to face UN's Allah-commission

Why UN's Allah Commission? Well, read on and you'll see! Paul Belien of The Brussels Jornal:

Arab letters for Allah"In 1987 the United Nations changed the logo of its Human Rights Commission from a flame (below, on the left) into something (below, on the right) resembling..., well, that looks strikingly like the Arabic word "Allah."So far, there have been no protests from "offended" Muslims, though the logo definitely looks more like "Allah" than the Nike and Burger King logos.

Was the change in the UN Human Rights logo a coincidence? Some specialists do not think so. Apparently it may have been a high-ranking Muslim UN official who changed the logo. It is perhaps as much a coincidence as last week's common declaration signed by EU Foreign Policy Coordinator Javier Solana, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Secretary-General of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC). The three men pledged to rewrite the UN Human Rights Charter to “protect the sanctity of religions and the prophets.” About the uproar in Muslim countries regarding the Danish Muhammad cartoons they said: “We understand the deep hurt and widespread indignation felt in the Muslim world. The freedom of the press [...] should respect the beliefs and tenets of all religions.”"

Get the whole story on the logo change here, including the usual lots of offended Muslims whenever a logo bears the slightest similarity with Arab-Allah, - but not this time!
