One of the fundamental laws of Islam deals with “slander,” which is defined in shariah as saying “anything concerning a person [a Muslim] that he would dislike.”
At the OIC’s (Organization of the Islamic Conference) Third Extraordinary Session, held in Mecca, Saudi Arabia in December 2005, the organization adopted a “Ten-Year Program of Action to Meet the Challenges Facing the Muslim Ummah in the 21st Century.”
A key agenda item of that meeting was “the need to counter Islamophobia” by seeking to have the UN “…adopt an international resolution to counter Islamophobia, and call upon all States to enact laws to counter it, including deterrent punishments.”
The word “Islamophobia” is a completely invented word, coined by the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) front group. OIC adoption of the term reflects the close operational relationship between the OIC and the Brotherhood.
Six years later, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hosted OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu in Washington, DC in mid-December 2011 to discuss how the United States can implement the OIC agenda to criminalize criticism of Islam.
Cloaked in the sanctimonious language of “Resolution 16/18,” that was adopted by the UN Human Rights Council in April 2011, the WDC three-day “experts” meeting was billed as a working session to discuss legal mechanisms to combat religious discrimination (but the only religion the Human Rights Council has ever mentioned is Islam).
The UN Human Rights Council, which includes such bastions of human rights as China, Cuba, Libya, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia, introduced Resolution 16/18 to the UN General Assembly (UNGA), where it was passed in March 2011.
The Resolution was presented to the UNGA by Pakistan (where women get the death penalty for being raped and “blasphemy” against Islam is punished by death). Ostensibly about “combating intolerance, negative stereotyping and…incitement to violence against persons based on religion or belief,” the only partnership mentioned in the text is the one with the OIC. The U.S., whose official envoy to the OIC, Rashad Hussain, who helped write Obama’s Cairo apology speech, actively collaborated in the drafting of Resolution 16/18. (But the claims that the White House has no ties to the Brotherhood are absurd).
The OIC’s Ihsanoglu came to Washington, DC, the capital of one of the only countries in the world with a Constitution that guarantees freedom of speech and a judicial system that consistently defends it, with a publicized agenda to criminalize criticism of Islam. His agenda, and, apparently that of his host, the U.S. Department of State, seek to bring the U.S. into full compliance with Islamic law on slander, as noted above.
Just as our elected officials create convenient areas of privilege which absolve them from obeying laws which are so enthusiastically applied to the rest of us, so Muslims are seeking to become a privileged class with the exclusive right to decide what offends their religious sensibilities and what level of punishment must be metered out for that particular affront.
Since 1999, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has demanded all nations adopt laws concerning “defamation of religion” ( but only their religion) which would subject offenders to appropriate criminal punishment for blasphemy worldwide. At the heart of this movement is the contention that “…the international community should ‘come out of hiding from behind the excuse of freedom of expression.’”
It seems all of this United States-inspired, freedom-motivated nonsense about protecting First Amendment rights gets in the way of what is really important; that being the ability of the followers of Islam to impose Shariah restrictions on the foolishly audacious American people, all for their own good, of course.
As U.N. chief Ban Ki Moon explains, “some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs….” And after all, “…while [freedom of expression] is a fundamental right and privilege, it should not be abused by such people, by such a disgraceful and shameful act.”
Of course the only really shameful act is that of Ban Ki Moon himself (as well as his predecessors), placing on perpetual display his willingness to side with the most corrupt and treacherous pretenders to pious reverence and devotion to God’s will in human history.
On Wednesday, the morally despicable Moon accused the maker of “Innocence of Muslims” of having “abused his right to freedom of expression by making the movie.” “Freedom of expression should be and must be guaranteed and protected when they are used for common justice, common purpose…” Moon continued. Seems Moon has also been studying the American progressive movement.
Such statements reveal an arrogance and conceit matched only by that of the would-be Islamofascist dictators to whom Moon is so willing to sacrifice the rights of the earth’s non-Muslim population.
Funny how the most dependable abusers of human rights invariably seek assistance for their treacherous schemes from the most dependably liberal useful idiots. From the United Nations to the Obama Regime, neither group can provide assistance fast enough to concoct some form of ginned-up blasphemy into a punishable, global Islamic affront.
And it’s perhaps doubly strange that some of the best advice for countering this Muslim scourge should come from liberal atheist Sam Harris who writes, “…the only forces on earth that can recover [freedom] are strong, secular governments that will face down charges of blasphemy with scorn. No apologies necessary. Muslims must learn that if they make belligerent and fanatical claims upon the tolerance of free societies, they will meet the limits of that tolerance.”
Harris certainly makes it clear that the world must stand against this plague or eventually succumb to it.
We know the establishment left will gladly betray the American people to the forces of Islam in the name of political correctness, but if Republican Party leaders continue to placate, ours may very soon become a nation of militias once more.
