Europe opting for submission to Islam


On Oct 25th, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), in a ruling mandatory for 47 European countries, denied an Austrian petitioner and ruled that the imperatives of "religious peace" and "mutual tolerance" are more important than freedom of speech.

To understand what that means in practice, it is worthwhile to recall the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam of 1990, which was approved by all 57 members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. It expressly denied the universally-accepted definition of human rights and subjected them (in articles 24 and 25) to the medieval obscurantism of sharia law.
