The Organization of Islamic Co-operation Needs To Get Its Own House In Order Before It Lectures The West

Before I paste any of this article here, let me add this 2 cents.

The idea of criminalizing criticism of belief is so preposterous that it ends all law everywhere. In essence, it means that any and all prosecutions ever done anywhere are illegal, as after all, any action taken by a living thing is predicated on some kind of belief. If criticism of that belief is illegal, then stopping actions based on that belief would have to follow, as stopping these actions would be a form of criticism of the belief that inspired it. This makes rape legal certainly as well, he believed she really wanted it right?

Following the lobbying efforts of the Organization of Islamic Co-operation (OIC), resolution 16/18 was agreed by the United Nations.  The resolution reads as follows:

“Combating intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of, and discrimination, incitement to violence and violence against, persons based on religion or belief”

Is the OIC’s motivation with regard to defamation of religion motivated by a sincere belief in protecting religious freedom or is it a means to protect religious dogma?  The plight of minority religious opinion in many OIC member states may perhaps suggest an answer to this question.

We have therefore looked at two websites that look at persecution: WikiIslam, and persecution.org.  There are relevant links to each site next to the OIC member state listed.  Some member states have more entries than others, there is even an indication of positive measures in a small number of states.

The following OIC states appear to have the best record of tolerance based on a quick look at the two sources and are not included in the list below: Kingdom of Bahrain, Burkina-Faso (then Upper Volta), Republic of Togo, Republic of Djibouti, Republic of Suriname, Sultanate of Oman, Republic of Gabon, Republic of The Gambia, Republic of Guyana, Republic of Guinea-Bissau, Republic of Mali, Republic of Mozambique, Republic of Cameroon, and State of Qatar.

However, the overall picture that is created of the OIC area with regard to persecution of religious minorities is disgraceful.  The OIC clearly has much work to do with its a large number of its own member states before lecturing the West and the wider world about religious tolerance.  If the example of many OIC countries is anything to go by then laws to prevent defamation of religion are far from positive in their effects.  This is just a snapshot based on articles included at these two websites and there are some articles that do suggest positive measures in some cases.

    Your 2cents is worth a million dollars MrTepes.

  2. To hell with the UN.

    Politicians need to either dissolve the UN or boot the OIC out.

    We’ve already seen how these insane blasphemy laws have crept into Europe, like the example of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.

    The Left have truly proven how utterly treacherous and backwards they are for curbing the freedom of speech.

  3. “The OIC clearly has much work to do with its a large number of its own member states before lecturing the West and the wider world about religious tolerance.” For example, in Saudi Arabia there is not a single Church there, nor is one allowed to be built. Also. in Saudi Arabia, any Christian caught practicing their faith are arrested, tortured and imprisoned. I worked in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh, for four years as a consultant. One day, soon after my arrival, I was accosted by a short, ugly, skinny, bearded monkey in the “Kingdom Mall” (a HUGE luxury Mall). This aggressive monkey was, I found out later, a member of the “Religious Police” , the Muttawe’en (sp?). He objected strongly to the small gold medallion of St. Christopher that I had on my neck, and actually tried to grab it. Well, I am a relaxed and peaceful man, but took exception to this “illiterate savage”, grabbed the sand-monkey’s arm and twisted it around his back and told him in no uncertain terms to “F*ck off”, and then threw him to the floor and kicked him. I didn’t know then, but those actions of mine could have landed me in jail, whipped and beheaded! Luckily for me the two Egyptian security mall guards were sort of “westernized”, and laid into the sand-monkey for me and told him to stop bothering their tourists – they apologized to me for the “crazy Saudi”!! I tell you, it was scary. But I think that a lot of westerners should seriously think twice about visiting any of the OIC countries as tourists or holiday-makers…. it’s just too dangerous. I think the OIC is going to have a lot of legal cases lodged against them if they persist in this UN campaign to have their eath Cult protected.
