OIC Calls for Global Sharia Blasphemy Laws

Hmmm. Now I'm confused. Whenever U.S. politicians push for "American Laws for American Courts" legislation (which would ban the enforcement of Sharia in the U.S.), Muslim organizations assure us that there's no conflict between Sharia and Western values. But here we find the largest Muslim organization in the world (made up of 56 countries) calling for international limits on freedom of speech. Can anyone figure out what's going on? It's as if someone's been lying to us.

GENEVA (Reuters) – The world’s largest Islamic body called on Tuesday for expressions of “Islamophobia” to be curbed by law, just as some countries restrict anti-Semitic speech or Holocaust denial.

Pakistan, speaking on behalf of the 56 countries that form the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), condemned a video made in the United States that defamed Islam and the Prophet Mohammad, igniting Muslim protests around the world this month.

“Incidents like this clearly demonstrate the urgent need on the part of states to introduce adequate protection against acts of hate crimes, hate speech, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation and negative stereotyping of religions, and incitement to religious hatred, as well as denigration of venerated personalities,” Pakistan’s ambassador Zamir Akram said in a speech to the U.N. Human Rights Council.

The Obama administration has condemned the film entitled “Innocence of Muslims” as “disgusting”. But Western countries remain determined to resist restrictions on freedom of speech and have already voiced disquiet about the repressive effect of blasphemy laws in Muslim countries such as Pakistan.

Akram said the crudely made video, as well as the burning of the Koran and the publication of defamatory cartoons, amount to “deliberate attempts to discriminate, defame, denigrate and vilify Muslims and their beliefs”.

Such acts constitute “flagrant incitement to violence” and are not protected by freedom of expression, Akram said. Rather, he said, Islamophobia must be acknowledged as a contemporary form of racism and be dealt with as such.

“Not to do so would be a clear example of double standards. Islamophobia has to be treated in law and practice equal to the treatment given to anti-Semitism, especially in legislations.”

It was urgent to “establish an internationally acceptable threshold between freedom of expression and incitement to violence and hatred,” Akram added. (Continue Reading)

@ Baron Eddie
I was about to say that but you beat me to it. Thanks. Ban the quran, there's more hatred in it than hitlers germany. Watching a few videos on memri tv shows the hatred they spew against others. why muslim hate the jews with every breath they take? why the "kafirphobia" in quran?

@Baron Eddie,
I fully agree.
This MUST be made an example,
and furthermore:
Death penalty for Apostasy
AND
Desecration of Churches, prosecution of non-"Muslims"
MUST BE BANNED IN ALL ISLAMIC COUNTRIES.
THIS must be put on the table, someone need
to establish this case publically, with worldwide
attention, the reaction WILL expose the hypocrisy
of the OIC.
