The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is coming to town, to Helsinki Finland that is, under the guise of discussing Islam’s contributing role to Europe, and how best to ease the tensions that exist in Europe between its Muslim and non-Muslim communities.
The Tundra Tabloids of course has an immediate response, but it will be placed further down below. The TT received this piece of informative news in an email yesterday, from Vasarahammer concerning the seminar set to take place this next Tuesday in Helsinki.
The Sec-Gen of the Sharia driven OIC is going to show us all how best to get along, but if past speeches are any indicator (25.09.08), then those attending should get ready for a steaming plate of taqiyya to be handed to them.
Email reads: “Islam has been a major religion in many parts of Europe since its earliest days, meaning that Muslim communities are long standing members of the wider European community. But today, due to fears over terrorism, security and immigration, European Muslims are facing mounting hostility. What can be done to counter this situation? Can a dialogue between cultures alleviate the fears of Muslims and non-Muslims in Europe?”
Well for starters:
One could easily highlight the inconsistencies and hypocrisy in his recent speech about “peace and understanding” given at Columbia University, that both Islam and the OIC are said to be promoting. Though the Gen-Sec paints the OIC as an organization that promotes peace and harmony between Islam and the West, there are however, OIC member states -most notably Saudi Arabia, where the OIC’s headquarters is located– that are engaging in activities that only serve to highlight the OIC’s hypocrisy and counter productiveness.
For an example of how Muslim states seek to sow unrest in Europe’s own Muslim communities, look no further to the OIC’s Sec-gen own fellow countryman and coreligionist, Recep Tayyip Erdogan:
“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers”
Who also said to Germany’s 2.5 million Turkish immigrants that:
“assimilation is a crime against humanity.”
Holland: “The Christian Democrats, Labor Party and the Liberals have expressed their disapproval of statements made by Moroccan Minister Mohammed Ameur. The minister had said that Moroccans abroad belong to the 17th province of the Kingdom of Morocco, and that the Moroccan government would strengthen its ties with Moroccans abroad by promoting Arab culture.
Former Dutch Minister Henk Kamp (Liberals) said that this attitude hampers the Dutch interest in integrating the 330,000 Moroccan immigrants better into life in the Netherlands. A few days earlier there had been criticism by Ella Vogelaar, Minister of Integration, about similar statements made by the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan.
OIC member states are contributing to the increased lack of desire by Europe’s Muslims to intergrate into society. Also, lets be clear, Sharia law is an inhumane and highly antidemocratic system of jurisprudence. OIC bathes itself in Sharia law, read the two articles from the Cairo Declaration:
Article 24 states “All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Sharia.”
Article 25 follows that with “The Islamic Sharia is the only source of reference for the explanation or clarification of any of the articles of this Declaration.”
Starting from that perspective, anything the OIC says or does must be judged under that rubric.
1.) Modernist Muslims, many of whom have fled the Islamic Middle East because of persecution directly resulting from rural and state sanctioned sharia law, now find themselves increasingly in situations, here in Europe, from which they fled.
2.) European Jews are feeling the brunt of Islamist extremism, which is directly and indirectly being funded by OIC member states through their Dawa (Islamic outreach programs) that are helping to spread a purist version of Islam in mosques and in prisons all over Europe.
3.) Christian Arabs are being persecuted and are fleeing the Islamic Middle East like never before, the only area in which their numbers have remained stable, or increasing is in Israel.
4.) OIC member states allow their media, political and religious leaders to disseminate the most vile anti-Semitism seen since the days of National Socialism in Germany in the 30, and 40’s, supported by state funding. It’s no accident that Mein Kampf, and the highly discredited Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion enjoy wide publication in the Islamic Middle East, as well as Holocaust denial.
While Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu may speak of Islamic self criticism, yet the OIC remains noticeably mute about these serious issues, but are very vocal about protecting Islam from any kind of criticism that all other ideologies are subjected to here in the West. I wonder what Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu would say to that? KGS
