Interpol: the long arm of Sowdi Barbaria?
Insulting the profit of Islam is considered blasphemous and can be punishable by death in Saudi Arabia. Â If Interpol is now being used, in effect, to enforce shariah blasphemy laws, it is not just somebody else’s problem. It is ours.
Interpol was used to extradite a man who simply spoke his mind about Islam’s prophet – and who now faces death in Saudi Arabia. Â (Gaffney)
Home Minister Hishamuddin Hussein said the deportation to Saudi Arabia was legal and that Malaysia cannot be seen as a safe haven.
Hamza Kashgari, 23, was sent back to Saudi Arabia on Sunday.
Compare and contrast. If these are the principles that inform the functioning of your society, you have a problem. An update onÂ this story. “Reprieve unlikely for Saudi writer after cleric backs death sentence,” fromÂ Emirates 24-7, February 13 via JW.

Obama is in the White House and endorses their efforts. The OIC has tried for years to compel Western states to restrict free speech and outlaw truth-telling about Islam, and now it is pressing on toward final victory. Apparently OIC top dogs are not satisfied with the current rate of compliance of the dhimmi mainstream media, even though it is almost total: the media constantly ignores, downplays, and obfuscates the ways in which Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism, the Islamic character of honor killings, and more.

“The workshop will represent a quantum leap in media action, as it discusses, beyond rhetoric, the practical steps to address the phenomenon of Islamophobia,” the OIC said….
