It Can’t Happen Here? Muslim Organization Wants International Law Criminalizing Criticism of Islam
The OIC's secretary-general, Dr. Yousef al-Othaimeen, called upon the nations of the world, both Muslim and non-Muslim, to crack down on speech that was "insulting religions or prophets." It was clear, however, that al-Othaimeen couldn't have cared less about speech insulting Christianity or Judaism or Hinduism or Buddhism or any of the revered figures of those religions. He cared only about criticism of Islam.
"These issues are of great importance, to be worked on in collaboration not only with governments, but also with people and non-profit organizations, to prove to everyone that Islam is the voice of mercy, moderation and coexistence with Muslims and non-Muslims."
Yes, everyone who remembers 9/11, and the Fort Hood jihad massacre, and
the Boston Marathon bombings, and a host of other jihad attacks, all carried
out in accord with Islamic teachings, knows all about Islam's "voice of mercy,
moderation and coexistence with Muslims and non-Muslims."
