Then-Secretary of State Clinton with OIC top dog Ihsanoglu and other anti-free speech warriors
The OIC continues to war against the freedom of speech, so as to silence any resistance to jihad terror and Islamic supremacism. Their Leftist allies cheerfully aid and abet them in this.
“OIC Blames Free Speech for ‘Islamophobia’ in West,” by Soeren Kern at the Gatestone Institute, December 11:
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, an influential block of 57 Muslim countries, has released the latest edition of its annual “Islamophobia” report.
The “Sixth OIC Observatory Report on Islamophobia: October 2012-September 2013” is a 94-page document purporting to “offer a comprehensive picture of Islamophobia, as it exists mainly in contemporary Western societies.”
But the primary objective of the OIC””headquartered in Saudi Arabia and funded by dozens of Muslim countries that systematically persecute Christians and Jews””has long been to pressure Western countries into passing laws that would ban “negative stereotyping of Islam.”
In this context, the OIC’s annual Islamophobia report””an integral part of a sustained effort to prove the existence of a “culture of intolerance of Islam and Muslims” in the West””is in essence a lobbying tool to pressure Western governments to outlaw all forms of “Islamophobia,” a nebulous concept invented by the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1990s.
The OIC report comprises five main chapters and several annexes aimed at documenting “incidents of slandering and demeaning Muslims and their sacred symbols including attacks on mosques, verbal abuses and physical attacks against adherents of Islam, mainly due to their cultural traits.”
But the common thread that binds the entire document together is the OIC’s repeated insistence that the main culprit responsible for “the institutionalization of Islamophobia” in Western countries is freedom of speech, which the OIC claims has “contributed enormously to snowball Islamophobia and manipulate the mindset of ordinary Western people to develop a ‘phobia’ of Islam and Muslims.”
According to the OIC, freedom of expression is shielding “the perpetrators of Islamophobia, who seek to propagate irrational fear and intolerance of Islam, [who] have time and again aroused unwarranted tension, suspicion and unrest in societies by slandering the Islamic faith through gross distortions and misrepresentations and by encroaching on and denigrating the religious sentiments of Muslims.”…
