Zoom in

In yet another openly hostile, in-your-face act of intimidation against anyone who dares to disagree with the "Religion of Peace," 57 Muslim countries around the world are now coming together to pressure Western countries into silencing and prosecuting any and all criticism of Islam as a "hate crime."

As Investor's Business Daily explains, it is all happening under the banner of a Saudi-based group called the "Organization of Islamic Cooperation," which released its 94-page document on "Islamophobia" (noticing Islamic violence is fear-based bigotry) in recent weeks.

If this calculated attempt to obliterate all dissent has its way, it will officially become a felony in the U.S. and Europe for citizens to even suggest "that Muslims are inclined to violence" or that "Islam is an inherently expansionist religion."

Never mind the fact that huge portions of Muslims in countries all around the world admittedly believe adulterers and non-believers should be put to death, support suicide bombing civilians, and endorse honor killings.

Or that these are the same people who routinely stone women to death for being raped, who erupt into murderous worldwide riots over cartoons, and who danced in the streets on 9/11.

Or that Islam was founded at the tip of a sword. Or that its Koran openly teaches violent jihad against all non-believers. Or that Islam has remained entrenched in self-initiated carnage in every corner of the world since its bloody inception.

Islam revolves around violent expansion and conquest. Every last thing that in any way indicates something about a religion confirms this--its history, its founder, its teachings, its followers...everything.

But noticing this or objecting in any way is to be condemned and persecuted as "hate speech." Instead, we are to believe that approximately one abortion clinic bombing per decade makes Christians the dangerous extremists here...while Islam is just a misunderstood "religion of peace."

Incidentally, it is also worth noting that the "pro-tolerance," "pro-diversity" liberals who defend Islam as it murders, mutilates and enslaves women across the globe are the very same champions of civility who vindictively smear anyone who objects to limitless taxpayer-funded abortion and contraceptives as being "at war with women."

Islamophobia ≠ "noticing Islamic violence"

Umm...this is nothing but paranoia. No such law could ever pass in America. It would be unconstitutional.

Never mind the fact that huge portions of Muslims in countries all around the world admittedly believe adulterers and non-believers should be put to death, support suicide bombing civilians, and endorse honor killings.

I stopped reading right there.

Really odd...."expansionist" religion? So, do you mean Muslims are, like, say, evangelicals, whose purpose in life is to proselytize recruit, who have gone ALL OVER THE WORLD to "spread the word of Jesus?" 

I've never had a Muslim knock on my door to proselytize recruit me.

Believe me, I reject religious fanatics of all flavors. I cannot stand most organized religion. But this is a pile of crap.

CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 

 

Given the unabated rise of Islamophobia, western Governments must be made to have more 

appreciation and understanding of OIC concerns that Islamophobia, which manifests itself under 

various forms of discrimination and intolerance against Muslims, carries potentially dangerous 

consequences that will deeply and adversely impact international relations and imperil the internal 

stability and social cohesion of western societies. The west needs to have a clear understanding that 

Islam is not a contender of Judaism or Christianity but that it is another Abrahamic faith that 

flowed from the preceding faiths of Judaism and Christianity. 

 

The support of a section of political leaders and inaction on the part of governments to take legal 

action against the perpetrators of Islamophobia in the west makes it raise and gain strength. Western 

Governments should take necessary measures to counter the propagation of negative stereotypes 

about Islam and Muslims. Many distorted facts and ill conceived ideas about Islam continue to be 

accepted and justified despite the clear danger they represent in societies. These include the 

perception that Islam is linked to terror; that it is intolerant of other religious beliefs, that its values 

and practices are incompatible with modern democratic systems; that it favours repression of 

freedom of expression and undermining human rights and other misperceptions. 

 

In order to combat Islamophobia and foster tolerance and mutual understanding based on 

international human rights standards, States, international organizations and non-state actors 

should: 

 

 Take all necessary measures within their power and legal/jurisdictional systems to ensure a 

safe environment free from Islamophobic harassment, violence and discrimination in all 

walks of life; 

 

 Develop and implement comprehensive educational strategies and programmes for 

combating Islamophobia in education, particularly at the school level, with a view to 

promoting interfaith, understanding and harmony. 

 

 Create, whenever necessary, specialized bodies and initiatives in order to combat 

Islamophobia; 

 

 Include in their integration policies programmes and activities addressing Islamophobia and 

its roots causes; 

 

 Collect and maintain reliable information and statistics about Islamophobic hate crimes 

committed within their territory/area of responsibility and make such reports publicly 

available; 

 

 Combat Islamophobic hate crimes, which can be fuelled by Islamophobic hate speech in the 

media and on the Internet; 


Take all necessary measures to ensure that the Media assumes its responsibility to portray 

positive initiatives at all levels of society and refrains from associating extremism and 

terrorism to Islam, and Muslims. 

 

 Take all necessary measures in order to prevent racial/religious profiling and other forms of 

institutionalized Islamophobia; 

 

 Conduct public awareness campaigns and specific programmes for governmental officials 

and also for citizens in order to combat Islamophobia; 

 

 Strive to develop necessary mechanisms and standards to increase international co-operation 

in combating Islamophobia. 

 

 Encourage and support intergovernmental human rights agencies and non-governmental 

organizations dealing with Islamophobia; 

 

 Encourage and support the Independant Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC) 

in playing an active role in the combat against Islamophobia and discrimination against 

Muslims. 

 

 Encourage political and religious leaders to take the lead in speaking out against acts of 

religious intolerance and discrimination against Muslims. 

 

 Raise awareness as to the need to share and disseminate good practices at all levels. 



The Observatory further supports the recommendations laid out in the European Network Against 
Racism (ENAR) Shadow Report on racism in Europe, which included a special focus on Muslim 
communities




In conclusion the Observatory would like to submit that the challenge for the OIC and Muslims is 
to work out a common strategy that would effectively expose the abhorrent scheme of the 
proponents of Islamophobia and its perilous implications on all peace loving people of the world. 
This strategy would also have to confront Islamophobia by raising awareness, in the West, as to the 
core principles of peace, moderation, tolerance, benevolence that are engrained in Islam. A robust 
media campaign to remove the misgiving in the western mindset of the utterly ridiculous and 
erroneous propaganda of Islam and Muslims being “sponsors or patrons” of terrorism and violence 
is a priority need and Member States must come up with the required recourses to support the 
General Secretariat to achieve this. 
 
The aims and goals of the strategy would have to be based on engagement and dialogue involving all 
stakeholders in the west to establish the reality that the activities of anti-Islam elements serve no 
purpose other than to stymie inter-communal harmony and peaceful coexistence among people of 
diverse faiths and belief. It is time for the OIC to conduct a credible research on the individuals and 
on their agenda of intolerance of Islam and Muslims and disseminate the findings through all 
available means, in particular the social media. 
 
The OIC and the Member States should not be complacent in underscoring the fact that our 
present day world is gradually being driven towards the dangerous precipices of growing intolerance 
of religious and cultural diversity. This is the clear and present danger that the OIC has been 
consistent in warning the international community against. The sooner the phenomenon of 
Islamophobia is addressed, the better it is for ensuring peaceful coexistence of the present as well for 
the future generations to come.
