Shrillary's Free Speech Follies

A perverse ‘Process’

Hillary’s free-speech follies- By NINA SHEA

The OIC’s purpose is to criminalize “incitement to hatred and violence on religious grounds.” 

Clinton: With this week’s conference, foolishly encouraged Muslim-world push to treat dissent from Islam as hate speech or worse.

“Test of consequences” means if you draw a Muhammad cartoon, do or say anything that enrages Muslims, (there are a million things that enrage Muslims, including your infidel existence) however, if you don’t submit to muselmanic mores its your fault because you are making the Muslim run amok, blow stuff up or fly jets into buildings, got it?

Resolution 16/18 was hailed as a victory by Clinton, because it calls on countries to combat “intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization” based on religion without criminalizing free speech — except in cases of “incitement to imminent violence.”  But if the criterion for determining “incitement to imminent violence” is a new “test of consequences,” then this is nothing but an invitation to stage Muslim “Days of Rage” following the slightest perceived offense by a Western blogger, instructor, or radio show guest, all of whom will be held legally liable for “causing” the destruction, possibly even if what they’ve said is merely a statement of fact.  The implications of such prior restraint on free speech would be chilling (which is precisely the point).

In fact, the “test of consequences” is already being applied rigorously in European media and courts, where any act or threat of violence — whether by a jihadist, insane person, or counter-jihadist — is defined as a “consequence” of statements that are critical of some aspect of Islam and, therefore, to be criminalized.  Recent trials of Dutch political leader Geert Wilders, Austrian free speech champion Elizabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, and Danish Islamic expert Lars Hedegaard (as well as the witch hunt for “instigators” that followed the murderous attacks by Norwegian blogger Anders Behring Brevik) all attest to the extent of these “hate speech” laws’ oppressive pall over what is left of the European Enlightenment.  Now, if the OIC and the Obama administration have their way, it’s America’s turn.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday ended the “Istanbul Process,” a three-day, closed-door international conference hosted by the State Department on measures to combat religious “intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization.”

Erdogan:  ‘Israel to stay isolated if doesn’t apologize’


Report: Turkish PM in Pakistan: US is supporting international terrorists who killed our citizens; says that “Israel never behaved like a civilized country with Turkey.”

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized what he called the “double standards” of the United States, saying that “Washington is not ready to condemn the state terrorism of Israel against Turkey, which means that the USA is supporting international terrorists who killed our citizens in international waters,” he told Pakistan‘sThe International News, the paper reported on Friday.

When asked about Turkey’s diplomatic relations with Israel, Erdogan said that “despite diplomatic relations, Israel never behaved like a civilized country with Turkey, and I cannot give any advice to my Pakistani brothers; it is their right to decide about making relations with Israel,” according to the report.

Additionally, Erdogan said that “Israel must apologize to Turkey and pay compensation. If it does not, it will be doomed to remain isolated in the Middle East,” Press TV reported on Friday. (More)

Zero tolerance and no respect to native Christian culture in combination with a million dollar propaganda campain to deceive the western world about the real intentions of Turkey.

Oh noes: Waning Support for Defamation of Religion Resolution Undermines Defense of Islam, OIC Chief Says

As its annual “defamation of religion” resolution loses ground at the United Nations after a decade of successes, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is urging its members to close ranks on an issue, which it calls vital for the defense of Islam. – OIC Fulfills Function of Caliphate….

Foreign ministers from the 56 mostly Muslim-majority countries that make up the OIC plan to discuss the issue when they hold their 2010 session in the Tajikistan capital of Dushanbe next month.

In the Saudi city of Jeddah this week, the Islamic bloc’s powerful secretary-general, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, told senior officials preparing for the Dushanbe meeting that he hoped OIC member states would “lend particular attention” to the religious defamation issue.

He voiced dismay about the declining support for the resolutions, and the fact that some countries, which he did not identify, were “thinking of reconsidering the subject.”

“I wish to affirm that the member states’ commitment to support the OIC’s stand vis-a-vis this vote is of vital weight and should not be downplayed,” Ihsanoglu said. “For any laxity in this connection would mean the loss of a political and legal mainstay in the defense of our faith, our values and our sanctities.”

OIC "Islamophobia Observatory": Killing Cartoonists Okay, Printing Cartoons in Newspaper is Not…

The usual: all 1.5 gazillion muslims will go apeshit and kill all Swedes… because we are forcing them to…  yes, and Islam is a Religion of Peace  if it wasn’t for cartoonists who turn perfectly good muslims into raging bloodthirsty lunatics who wage jihad……

Weasel Zippers:


A spokesman of the Organization of the Islamic Conference’s Islamophobia Observatory condemned the reprint of the controversial drawing of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by Swedish artist Lars Vilks in three Swedish newspapers, namely Dagens Nyheter, Expressen, and Sydsvenska Dagbladet, and electronic media including radio and television broadcasts as reaction to an alleged plot to murder the cartoonist, which was uncovered in Ireland on March 9, 2010.

The spokesman said that the OIC had always spoken against violence including death threats against the originators of the blasphemous cartoons. He said however, that the Swedish media’s explanation of the action taken to reprint the cartoons in the name of freedom of expression was unacceptable, unwise and irresponsible as it has caused hurt and insult to the Muslim citizens of Sweden as well as the 1.5 billion Muslims across the world who had nothing to do with the alleged death threat. The spokesman added that there were other options available for the Swedish media to show their protest instated of resorting to an action that could potentially open a raw wound and incite avoidable unrest.

New Erdogan, old Erdogan: same Jew-hatin' scumbag…

Erdogan encourages antisemitism

No surprise here. Erdogan is a believing Muslim. He knows that the worst enemies of the Muslims are the Jews — the Qur’an says so (5:82).

“Israel-Turkey; Report, Erdogan Encourages Anti-Semitism,” from ANSAmed/JW

– JERUSALEM, JANUARY 26 – Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan “indirectly incites and encourages anti-Semitism” in his country, according to a report drafted by the research department of the Israeli Foreign Ministry and published today by Israeli Haaretz daily. According to the report, which has been sent to the country’s main ministers, “ever since his party took power, Erdogan has conducted an ongoing process of fashioning a negative view of Israel in Turkish public opinion.” Moreover, “for Erdogan and some of those around him there is no distinction between ‘Israeli’ and ‘Jewish'”. The Turkish Premier Erdogan also “turns a blind eye” and “grants legitimacy” to anti-Israeli television programs of an inflammatory, anti-Semitic nature. The recent humiliation of the Turkish ambassador to Israel, for which Deputy Foreign Minister was forced to apologise in public, has made it clear to the Turkish government that the country has crossed lines in its attacks on Israel and in the limits of the Israeli government’s patience. Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and his deputy Ayalon, both of the ultra-nationalist Beitenu party, are the leaders of the hard line against Turkey. Defence Minister and leader of the Labour party, Ehud Barak, on the other hand favours a softer approach. He wants to continue to have friendly relations with the country, which he believes to be of strategic importance. The report ends with the pessimistic conclusion that “Turkey today, under the leadership of the AKP (Erdogan’s party), is different from the Turkey with which Israel forged a strategic relationship in the early 1990s.”

From the excellent Tundra Tabloids:

The Secretary-General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), Ekmeleddin Ishanoglu, told the Tundra Tabloids a couple of years ago in Helsinki that, “no Muslim, good or bad, could be antisemitic”, so why should Recep Tayyip Erdogan believe the Israeli report? Muslims believe that they have the right to address Jews and any other non-muslim in any way they see fit, such sentiment is a crucial part of the Islamic supremacist package.

The Suppression of Free Speech in Europe

Europe’s War on Free Speech

Its not only Europe that is pandering to the OIC: the Obama czars are working overtime to re-introduce the “fairness doctrine” and there is a whole lot of new “hate-speech” laws about to be introduced that would criminalize criticism of Islam. In case you don’t know it yet, the Obama-bastards are also out to get control over the internet, the last bastion of free speech: Obama Plans Internet Grab: FCC to Embrace ‘Net Neutrality’

Thanks to the Gates of Vienna

Below is a report by Dale Hurd of CBN News about the suppression of free speech in Europe. Thanks to the Islamization of Europe and the influence of the OIC, “defamation of religion” laws work in one direction only: in favor of Muslims and against everyone else.

OIC denounces interference in Iran’s internal affairs
Tehran Times Political Desk

TEHRAN – Participants to the OIC parliamentary union meeting in Algiers released a statement on Tuesday condemning the interference of foreign states in Iran’s internal matters. 


“The Organization of Islamic Conference welcomes the results of the recent election in Iran and condemns the interference of foreigners in the country’s internal affairs,” said the statement which was broadcast by the Algerian state TV. 

The statement called on the Iranian nation to unite against the enemies. 

It also expressed concerns over the unjustified pressure on Iran for its peaceful nuclear activities while ignoring the threats by Israel’s nuclear arsenal. 

The executive committee of OIC parliamentary union held their 21st meeting in the Algerian capital. Iran’s parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani participated in the conference 

OIC: "Islamophobia a Clear and Present Danger to Global Peace and Security"….

* Of course it is! What could be worse than resisting the Islamization of (our) infidel countries?

Muhammad said, “I have been ordered to fight against people until they say that “there is no god but Allah”, that “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”, they pray, and pay zakat (religious taxes.)  If they do that, their lives and property are safe.”

Muslim scholar Bassam Tibi explains:

At its core, Islam is a religious mission to all humanity. Muslims are religiously obliged to disseminate the Islamic faith throughout the world.  We have sent you forth to all mankind” (Q. 34:28). If non-Muslims submit to conversion or subjugation, this call (dawa) can be pursued peacefully. If they do not, Muslims are obliged to wage war against them. In Islam, peace requires that non-Muslims submit to the call of Islam, either by converting or by accepting the status of a religious minority (dhimmi) and paying the imposed poll tax, jizya. World peace, the final stage of the dawa, is reached only with the conversion or submission of all mankind to Islam. Muslims believe that expansion through war is not aggression but a fulfillment of the Quranic command to spread Islam as a way to peace. The resort to force to disseminate Islam is not war (harb), a word that is used only to describe the use of force by non-Muslims. Islamic wars are not hurub (the plural of harb) but rather futuhat, acts of “opening” the world to Islam and expressing Islamic jihad. Relations between dar al-Islam, the home of peace, and dar al-harb, the world of unbelievers, nevertheless take place in a state of war, according to the Quran and to the authoritative commentaries of Islamic jurists. Unbelievers who stand in the way, creating obstacles for the dawa, are blamed for this state of war, for the dawa can be pursued peacefully if others submit to it. In other words, those who resist Islam cause wars and are responsible for them. Only when Muslim power is weak is temporary truce (hudna) allowed (Islamic jurists differ on the definition of temporary).

OIC: “Islamophobia a Clear and Present Danger to Global Peace and Security”….

Thanks to Weasel Zippers

Abu Dhabi, 30 May 2009 (WAM) –The Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) Observatory on Islamophobia released its Second Annual Reportcovering the period from June 2008 to April 2009 today at the commencement of the 36th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers in Syria.

The OIC newsletter, a copy of which was received by WAM, said the report has dwelt extensively on the worrying trend of Islamophobia as a clear and present danger to global peace and security.

The Report clearly lays out the sound legal basis in terms of the international law of the OIC’s case on defamation of religions, particularly Islam, as a form of racism.
