That’s what it means when the Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] talks about “destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”
Western cowardice and preemptive capitulation is all that’s needed to ensure the triumph of Islam.
This is the suicide of the free press. The Daily Mail is generally better than the other papers in Britain in covering the jihad threat, but it is also careless, sensationalistic, and — as this proves — execrably cowardly. The Daily Mail is hereby signaling that violent intimidation works, and that all you have to do to get the West’s vaunted “free press” to cower before you and give up its freedom is lob a few bombs, kill a few innocents, make a few threats.
“Ihsanoglu urged all Muslims to exercise restraint in the face of this incitement. He reiterated the OIC’s principled position on developing an international consensus on dealing with a frequency of deliberate acts of incitement, within the framework of the Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18.” In other words, don’t riot and kill this time, since soon we will prevail upon dhimmi Western governments to outlaw criticism of Islam. AndÂ the dhimmi press is already falling into line.
“OIC slams French caricature of Prophet,” fromÂ Arab News, January 3 (thanks to JW):
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has slammed caricatures of the Prophet (peace be upon him), published in the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, saying it incites hatred and intolerance against Muslims.
Interview withÂ Â Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu.Â This one should be watched by everyone involved in the counter jihad. Thanks to Vlad Tepes for keeping these videos coming. Â Full transcript here.
To understand the importance of this, watching Stephen Coughlin’s briefÂ on the OIC is very useful.
OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu expressed concern at the publication of the comic book series on the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Ihsanoglu said the publication went against the norms of responsible journalism and was tantamount to abuse of the right to freedom of expression. He added that incitement and advocacy of hatred and intolerance on religious grounds signified by this publication was in contravention of international human rights laws and instruments.
He called on the magazine to abide by the provisions, particularly those in the European Union (EU) context, on incitement to hatred and violence. He urged the authorities in France to take appropriate action against the magazine.
Ihsanoglu urged all Muslims to exercise restraint in the face of this incitement. He reiterated the OIC’s principled position on developing an international consensus on dealing with a frequency of deliberate acts of incitement, within the framework of the Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18.
Bat Ye’or explains how it all went so quickly downhill:
Bat Ye’or is not optimistic about the future of Europe and especially not an Obama-led United States. She shares her concerns with her readers In her conclusion:
While writing this study I was reminded of a question that greatly troubled me twenty-five years ago when researchingÂ Les ChrÃ©tientÃ©s d’Orient entre jihad et dhimmitudeÂ (1991).Â How did Christian peoples and states, some with powerful armies and the richest cultures of their times, collapse when faced with the onslaught of jihad and dhimmitude from the seventh to the fifteenth centuries?Â Now I no longer ask myself this question. The breakdown process that I used to study and documented in old chronicles I have seen taking place in today’s Europe. When I examined the past I saw it repeated in the present, under my very eyes. Indeed, the present situation is reminiscent of the one that followed the Muslim conquests. Keeping Christian officials in their positions maintained a semblance of continuity. Behind their foggy screen, Islamization could penetrate within every stratum of the vanquished societies. However, with time, the collapse of this edifice revealed the true role of these ministers, whose job was to enforce upon their people the caliphate’s orders, under pain of death. I was missing one essential link in the chain of events: the motivations of human beings that lead them in an unswerving direction within the chaos of events, the undeviating route toward an ultimate objective. Now this link is revealed in the mix of fears, cowardice, corruption, hatred and short-term ambitions that within the space of forty years have led Europe along the road to Eurabia, an interim stage in an even more profound change.
