A poignant look at the UN’s Human Rights Council and freedom of speech.



City Journal

Geneva, Switzerland

In December 2006, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), an international group established in 1971 and representing 57 countries, hosted an emergency summit in Mecca. The event became infamous after two angry imams from Denmark presented a dossier of cartoons published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten that mocked the Prophet Mohammed. In the ensuing uproar, Muslims murdered several people in Europe and torched the Danish embassy in Beirut.

But the cartoon episode wasn’t the summit’s starkest example of Muslim outrage over free speech. The most critical decision that the OIC made in Mecca was to adopt a zero-tolerance policy toward perceived insults to Islam. In its “Ten-Year Programme of Action,” the OIC announced that it would create an “observatory” to monitor acts of “Islamophobia.” It would also “endeavor to have the United Nations adopt an international resolution to counter Islamophobia, and call upon all States to enact laws to counter it, including deterrent punishments”—essentially the goal of its nonbinding UN resolution on “combating defamation of religions,” which the UN’s General Assembly adopted in March 2008. And it would “participate and coordinate effectively in all regional and international forums, in order to protect and promote the collective interests of the Muslim Ummah, including UN reform [and] expanding the Security Council membership.”

The goal was simple: to infiltrate and weaken secular democratic covenants and institutions from within, in a manner reminiscent of revolutionary Marxist groups’ “entryism” into the British Labour Party in the seventies and eighties. The OIC’s plan for implementing its Islamist agenda hasn’t succeeded on all fronts, of course. But it has succeeded spectacularly on one: the United Nations Human Rights Council.

The “Fairness Doctrine” is being re-introduced by the FCC, a U.S. Govt Agency, in order to insure “diversity of opinion” on radio and TV. The great fear is that certain topics will be considered politically incorrect, namely talk of Islamic extremism.

 

One wouldn't know it from reading the Washington Post or New York Times, but some inside the White House don't think that President Barack Obama hit a home run with his first national press conference last week.

by Andrew Bostom

The UK bars entry of Geert Wilders, invited to speak at the House Of Lords by British “leaders” who condemn him as a “rascist”, for his film FITNA, which is about the requirement of the world to submit to Islam.

Zaki Badawi, Britain ’s “Urbane,” “Moderate” Shari’a Supremacist

 

In the wake of Britain’s repulsive behavior towards Geert Wilders—barring his entry to speak at a House of Lords showing of his sobering, realistic film, Fitna, and demonizing him in uninformed press accounts, left, center, and right, and pious denouncements by so-called British “leaders” from across the political spectrum—it is worth reviewing these observations by the respected British scholar of Islam, Dr. Mervyn Hiskett, in Some to Mecca Turn to Pray, first published in 1993.
