The OIC Remembers the Victims of 9/11 on its 10th Anniversary

The OIC did not condemn the Accursed Abomination, it celebrated it,
smirking & snickering at your gullibility.  Read between the
lines and between the words, scratch the surface and delve into Islam’s
canon to discover the unpleasant objective factual reality.
The  OIC’s malignant pretense is reproduced below with
superscripts linked to my revelatory evidence and comments. Click any

The OIC Remembers the Victims of 9/11on its 10th
Anniversary

Date: 11/09/2011 –

On
the 10th anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Organization of the
Islamic Cooperation (OIC) joins the international community in
remembering the horrendous and cowardly act of terrorism
and the tragic
loss of thousands of innocent human lives. The OIC was among the first
in expressing shock and horror at the dastardly terrorist attack and in
condemning it in
the strongest terms1




The OIC seizes this
opportunity to reiterate its firm position of condemning terrorism
in
all its forms and manifestations and to underscore that terrorism is a
repugnant malady that seeks to destroy the fundamental ethos of
humanity. This principled position of the OIC against terrorism and
extremism is clearly stated in the OIC Ten Year Programme
of Action

adopted by the Heads of State and Government in 2005.2
The perpetrators of terror
have no respect
for human life or dignity3

and pursue an agenda of hate4
and destruction5.
They have no character, follow no faith
6
and live by a
dogma of violence
7. The OIC that is
guided by principles
of peace
and
tolerance
and moderation and modernization, is a major partner
of the
international, community in combating terrorism. In doing so, the OIC
Member States have themselves become the targets of terrorists and have
paid a heavy price in terms of human life and damage to property. The
OIC endeavors to combat
terrorism at its roots8
whatever its
possible
underpinnings, whether political, economic, social or technological.
This stand has been evidenced over the past decades through the
Organization’s endeavors to mobilize energies and efforts to fight
against terrorism. The OIC’s efforts were further strengthened with the
establishment of the Convention on Combating
Terrorism
in July 1999.
Perhaps, it is the only available Convention which defines terrorism9,
so far. 




In its firm belief that
combating terrorism requires a multi dimensional approach and not only
the use of military means to guarantee sustainable peace, the OIC
attaches enormous importance to identifying and addressing the root
causes of conflicts and disputes
10.
Dealing with
conflict through
the
comprehensive approach obviously carries huge potential benefits. 




In this regard, the OIC has
been vocal in calling for historical
reconciliation among
different
religions
, cultures, and civilizations
11, which would be seen as
catalyst
to debunk the myth of “clash of civilizations”12
elevated by the tragic
events of 9/11, which have, also, helped, unfortunately, the
Islamophobes to pursue with their discriminatory agenda towards Islam
and Muslims. It is worth mentioning that the OIC has always emphasized
that the international
community should act in the spirit of moderation
and dialogue to eliminate
all forms of hatred, intolerance and
discrimination
.13 The OIC
believes that the limits of
discrimination and
racism have already been defined by existing international human rights
instruments, including the consensually adopted HRC Resolution 16/18.
It is equally important to recall the need to observe the UNGA
Resolution 62/272
of September 5, 2008, which
negates the association
of Islam to terrorism
.14 The OIC,
in this regard, calls
for the
full
adherence
15
to these and other similar resolutions and
instruments. 




While commending the
initiatives of the international community on combating terrorism, the
OIC reiterates its readiness to cooperate with any
credible initiative in addressing the root causes and
consequences of
terrorism
with a view to having a safer world free from the evil
faces
of terrorism for our future generations.

 


  1. This is all I could find: “After
    the terrorist attacks on the 11th of September 2001, the OIC issued a
    statement condemning the « brutal and criminal » acts, stating that
    they are in contradiction wth the teachings of Islam. The
    statementunderlined the need to distinguish the terrorism practised by
    groups and individuals from the national resistance of peoples for
    liberation from occupation and colonialism.”  Strongest possible
    terms? “Allah” & “damn”  are missing. That condemnation falls
    far short. 

  2. VI.      Combating terrorism

     

    1.            Emphasize the
    condemnation of
    terrorism
    in all its forms, and reject any
    justification or rationalization
    for it, consider it as a global
    phenomenon that is not
    connected with any religion
    , race, color, or
    country, and distinguish
    it from the legitimate resistance to foreign
    occupation, which does not sanction the killing of innocent civilians
    .

     

    2.            Introduce
    comprehensive qualitative changes to national laws and legislations in
    order to criminalize all terrorist practices as well as all practices
    to support, finance, or instigate terrorism.

     

    3.            Affirm commitment to
    the OIC Convention on Combating Terrorism
    , participate
    actively in international counter-terrorism efforts, and endeavor to
    implement the recommendations of the International Conference on
    Combating Terrorism, held in Riyadh in February 2005, including the
    establishment of an International Center for Combating Terrorism, as
    well as the recommendations of the Special Meeting of OIC Foreign
    Ministers on Terrorism, held in Kuala Lumpur in April 2002.

     

    4.            Support
    efforts to develop an International Code of Conduct to Combat Terrorism
    and to convene an international conference or a special session of the
    UN General Assembly to reiterate the international consensus on
    establishing a comprehensive strategy to combat this dangerous
    phenomenon.

  3. […]“I have been ordered
    to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped
    but Allah.’ And if they say so,
    pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will
    be sacred to us
    […][Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387] Islam does not hold our
    lives & property sacred until we become Muslims at sword point. It
    is Islam that disrespects life &
    liberty
  4. 1:6. Guide us to the Straight Way

    1:7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned
    Your Anger
    (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray
    (such as the Christians).

    2:161. Verily, those who disbelieve, and die
    while they are disbelievers, it is they on whom is the Curse of Allâh and of
    the angels and of mankind,
    combined.

    2:162. They will abide therein
    (under the curse in Hell)
    , their punishment will neither be
    lightened, nor will they be reprieved.

    98:6.
    Verily, those who disbelieve
    (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad ()) from among the people of the
    Scripture
    (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They
    are the worst of creatures
    .

  5. 3:110. You
    [true believers in Islâmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet
    Muhammad  and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you
    enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm has
    ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that
    Islâm has forbidden), and you believe in Allâh. And had the people of
    the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better
    for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are
    Al-Fâsiqûn (disobedient to Allâh – and rebellious against Allâh’s
    Command).

    3:111. They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; and if
    they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will
    not be helped.

    3:112. Indignity is put over
    them
    wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of
    protection) from Allâh, and from men; they have drawn on themselves the
    Wrath of Allâh, and destruction
    is put over them.
    This is because they disbelieved in
    the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)
    of Allâh and killed the Prophets without right. This is because they
    disobeyed (Allâh) and used to transgress beyond bounds (in Allâh’s
    disobedience, crimes and sins).

    59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers
    among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî
    An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think
    that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would
    defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place
    whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own
    dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then
    take admonition, O you with eyes
    (to see).

  6. What did they say when they slit the
    throats of the flight crews? “Allahhu Akbar”; “follow no faith”? What
    sort of Muslim follows no faith?

  7. Bukhari
    Ch 61 # 2756: …It is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may
    Allah bless him and grant him peace, “My provision has been placed
    under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been
    placed on the one who disobeys my command.

    2:216. Jihâd
    (holy fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims)
    though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is
    good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh
    knows but you do not know.

    8:39. And fight
    them until
    there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism:
    i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for
    Allâh Alone
    [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease
    (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer
    of what they do.

    9:29. Fight
    against those who
    (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last
    Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His
    Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e.
    Islâm) among the people of the
    Scripture
    (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with
    willing submission, and feel themselves subdued
    .

  8. Terrorism is rooted in the Qur’an &
    sunnah.  To combat terrorism, it is necessary to abjure &
    curse the following ayat & ahadith without any hesitation, evasion
    or mental reservation whatsoever. No Muslim will abjure & curse
    these verses because by so doing, he would sign his own death warrant.
    I refer doubters & dissenters to Reliance of the Traveller, O8.1 & O8.7-7.

    3:151. We
    shall cast terror
    into the hearts of those who disbelieve,
    because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent
    no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of
    the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).

    8:12.
    (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you,
    so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the
    hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and
    smite over all their fingers and toes
    .”

    8:57.
    So if you gain the mastery
    over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who
    are behind them
    , so that they may learn a lesson.

    8:60.
    And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of
    war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allâh
    and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom
    Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh
    shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.

    9:120.
    It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the
    neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh’s Messenger (Muhammad  when
    fighting in Allâh’s Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer
    their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst
    nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the
    anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is
    written to their credit as a deed of righteousness.
    Surely,
    Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn

    33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture
    who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their
    forts and cast terror
    into their hearts, (so that) a
    group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives
    .

    33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and
    their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh
    is Able to do all things.

    59:2.
    He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the
    Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their
    homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get
    out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from
    Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they
    expected it not, and He cast
    terror into their hearts
    , so that they destroyed their own
    dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers
    .
    Then take admonition, O you
    with eyes
    (to see).

    59:13. Verily, you
    (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic
    Monotheism) are more awful as
    a fear in their
    (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh.
    That is because they are a people who comprehend
    not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh).

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:

    Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

    The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given
    to any one else before me.

    1. Allah made me victorious by
    awe,
    (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one
    month’s journey.

    2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for
    praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my
    followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.

    3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful
    for anyone else before me.

    4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of
    Resurrection).

    5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been
    sent to all mankind.

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the
    shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with
    terror
    (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was
    sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and
    put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world
    and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet
    did not benefit by them).

    33:21.
    Indeed in the Messenger of
    Allâh
    (Muhammad ) you have a good example to follow for
    him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and
    remembers Allâh much.

    Moe is the Muslim role model; what did he do? How was he made
    victorious?  There is the tap root of terrorism.

  9. OIC Convention on
    Combating Terrorism

    “Terrorism” means any act of violence
    or threat thereof
    notwithstanding its motives or intentions
    perpetrated
    to carry out
    an individual or collective criminal plan with the aim of terrorizing
    people
    or threatening to harm them or imperiling their lives,
    honor,
    freedoms, security or rights or exposing the environment or any
    facility or public or private property to hazards or occupying or
    seizing them, or endangering a national resource, or international
    facilities, or threatening the stability, territorial integrity,
    political unity or sovereignty of independent States

    This
    paragraph from the convention’s preamble shows us exactly why the U.N.
    is not able to define terrorism:  The OIC refuses to admit the
    fact that the PLO, HAMAS & Hezbollah are terrorists.

    Confirming the legitimacy of the right
    of peoples to struggle against foreign occupation and colonialist and
    racist regimes by
    all means, including armed struggle to liberate their territories and
    attain their rights to self-determination and independence in
    compliance with the purposes and principles of the Charter and
    resolutions of the United Nations

  10. The real cause
    is Allah’s damnable jihad imperatives enshrined in Surah Al-Anfal &
    Surah At-Taubah.

  11. How is reconciliation possible
    between Islam and Judaism?  “Worst of living creatures”, “those
    who earned Allah’s wrath”, “fight those who”, “He would certainly keep
    on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection,
    those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment.”[7:167],
    “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and
    the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There
    is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.””[Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177].
  12. The clash is between
    civilization and barbarism represented by Islam.
  13. Start by eliminating
    Islam, if you have any common sense.
  14. UNGA
    Resolution 62/272
    does not mention Islam
    or its association
    with terrorism
    .  Other resolutions do, on the insistence of
    the OIC.

    10/22

      • 6 Expresses deep
        concern in this respect that Islam is
        frequently and wrongly


        associated with human
        rights violations and terrorism
        and, in this
        regard, regrets the laws or

        administrative measures specifically designed to control and monitor
        Muslim minorities, thereby

        stigmatizing them and legitimizing the discrimination they experience;

      • 7  Reaffirms the commitment of all States to the
        implementation, in an integrated

        manner, of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy,
        adopted without a vote by the

        General Assembly in its resolution
        60/288
        of 8 September 2006 and
        reaffirmed by the Assembly

        in its resolution 62/272 of 5 September 2008, in which it clearly
        reaffirms, inter alia, that

        terrorism cannot and
        should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization
        or


        group, as well
        as
        the need to reinforce the commitment of the international community to

        promote, among other things, a culture of peace and respect for all
        religions, beliefs and cultures

        and to prevent the defamation of religions;

    • A/C.3/62/L.35
      • Further
        expresses its deep concern
        that Islam is frequently and wrongly


        associated with human
        rights violations and terrorism
        ;
  15. Islam demands that it be shielded
    from exposure; that we be prevented from lifting the lid of the septic
    tank so that the world can see and smell Islam as it really is.  I
    intend, whenever I see that demonic demand reiterated, to use it as an
    occasion for lifting that lid.  Terrorism is an intrinsic
    sacrament of Islam. This fatal fact is established by the numerous ayat
    and two hadith which sanctify & exemplify terrorism.

Yes, the OIC remembers the accursed abomination,
with swelling pride & satisfaction at the havoc wrought by the
magnificent 19, who earned Brownie Points towards better seats in
Allah’s Celestial Bordello  by steps taken to injure & enrage
disbelievers ten years ago.  No, they do not condemn terrorism
because to do so would make them apostates, subject to execution.

Islam is a package deal: all or
nothing
. It is not possible to renounce terrorism without
renouncing Islam, which is why they won’t do it.  From this day
forward, you can ask any Muslim: “how did Allah make Muhammad
victorious?”. When he lies to you, you can cite Sahih Bukhari, 1.7.331:
Allah made me victorious by
awe,
(by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one
month’s journey. ” and 4.52.220: “I have been made victorious with
terror
(cast in the hearts of the enemy),”

From this day forward, when any Muslim asserts
falsely that terrorism is harram, you can cite the numerous ayat which
sanctify it, the best of which, although indirect, is 9:120, which
promises rewards for any step taken to injure or enrage
disbelievers.  8:27 & 59: 2 fit together hand in glove,
forming a congruent pattern which can not be denied.

  • punish them severely in
    order to disperse those who
    are behind them
    , so that they may learn a lesson
  • Then take admonition, O
    you
    with eyes
    (to see).

OIC: United Stand Against Intolerance ?

August 18, 2011

OIC: United Stand Against Intolerance ?

Last March, the HRC passed a new resolution which was said to abandon
the nefarious “defamation of religions” concept, substituting “negative
stereotyping” & “incitement”.  That is the official position;
divergent from objective factual reality. The distinction is without
difference, and the amended verbiage is persiflage.

That fact is exposed by a March 24 address to the
HRC by Mr.
Zamir Akram, Pakistan’s Ambassador.   He made it clear that
the new resolution does not abrogate previous resolutions, instead, it
confirms them.  His speech is dissected in detail here.

 

Mr.
President: this resolution addresses a number of issuesover which the OIC has been
expressing concern over the years. having said  that, I wish to
state categorically that this resolution does not replace earlier
resolutions on combating  defamation.which were adopted by the Human
Rights Council  and remain valid.  This resolution L.38
is an attempt on the part of the oic to build consensuson an issue of vital importance
not only to Muslims but to people of all religions  and beliefs by
identifying  ways and means to deal with the growing problems of
religious incitementand
discrimination and incitement to hatredand violencebased on religion or belief.

The Secretary General of the OIC also addressed the HRC on the subject of the new resolution.

OIC has a principled postition against
defamation of any  religion, dehumanization of the followers or
denigration of symbols  sacred   to
all     religions.    The
developments  including the ban of construction of minarets, the
attempts towards burning of Qur’an and the use of Islamophobiaas an instrument of electoral politics are ominous.  There is an
urgent need to initiate and sustain what I would like to term as
‘preventive  cultural    diplomacy’.
We   need  to  move beyond  event based calls
for action to create spaces for structured engagement   The
Human Rights   framework provides with a concrete basis for
this engagement.   We believe that tbe workshops on
incitement to hatred under the Durban mandate constitute and important
avenue for a synthesis  aimed at bridging the divergence of views.

The Secretary General has spoken out again, this
time uttering & publishing a lie so egregious that it must be
refuted immediately.  It is necessary to rub his snout in his mess
of deception.

 The OIC has never sought
to limit freedom of expression
, give Islam preferential
treatment, curtail creativity or allow discrimination against religious
minorities in Muslim countries.
  •  never sought to
    limit freedom of expression
    • OIC
      Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu expressed his dismay
      and
      disappointment at the release of the book despite
      the fact that he, and some leaders of Muslim countries, had personally
      written letters to the foreign minister of Denmark, urging the Danish
      government to stop the publication
      of the book because of its
      highly provocative and inciting content.[
      Khaleej Times Habib Shaikh]
    • Tajikistan,
      current
      chair of the Organization of the Islamic Conference
      (OIC) has
      sent an official
      request to the UN to pressure Norway to stop publication
      of a
      reprint of the book with scandalous cartoons featuring the prophet
      Mohammed. []
      The
      letter
      , addressed to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, voices
      the concern of 57 members of the OIC and calls
      on the UN to “take measures against” the plan, reports Interfax. [
      http://rt.com/news/islamic-un-stop-cartoons/]
    • Pakistan
      said it told the Dutch ambassador that it was incumbent on the
      Netherlands to prosecute
      Mr Wilders for defamation and deliberately
      hurting Muslim sentiments
      , the official Associated Press of
      Pakistan
      news agency reported.”[
      BBC
      News
      ]

For the benefit of those suffering from anal cranial
juxtaposition, I will clear away the chaff:

  • never sought to limit
    freedom of expression
    • urging
      the Danish
      government to stop the publication
    • pressure
      Norway to stop publication
    • told
      the Dutch ambassador
      • to
        prosecute
        Mr Wilders

From the viewpoint of a rational and honest person,
Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu is a damned liar, having deliberately made an
egregiously untrue statement.  From the Islamic point of view, he
is not a liar because Islam does not recognize disbelievers as human,
denying our rights. They can not violate our freedom of expression
because we have none. Human rights do not apply to us in their point of
view.  The sanctity of life is conditioned on being Muslim.

[…]And if they say so,
pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and
property will be sacred
to us and we will not interfere with
them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah[…] [Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387]

Having exposed the most egregious deception, I will
continue fisking this screed, which is being widely propagated. I
perceive that this and related articles are the first wave of a tsunami
of pressure focused on the next General Assembly session beginning
September 20.

Istanbul, Turkey – The horrific
and tragic incident that happened in Norway reminds us again of the
importance of combating religious intolerance1
and promoting cultural
understanding2.




Anti-Islam and
anti-Muslim attitudes and activities3, known as Islamophobia, are
increasingly finding place in the agenda of ultra-right wing4 political
parties and civil societies in the West in their anti-immigrant5 and
anti-multiculturalism6 policies, as was evident in
the manifesto of the
Norway killer7.
Their views8
are being promoted under the banner of
freedom of expression9
while claiming that Muslims do not
respect that
right.




A few days before the
Norway attack, on 15 July in Istanbul, the Organization of Islamic
Cooperation (OIC) and the United States agreed to a united stand on
“[c]ombating intolerance10, negative stereotyping11
and stigmatization of12,
and discrimination13,
incitement to violence14,
and violence against
persons based on religion or belief15” through the implementation of UN
Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18.




The meeting –
co-chaired by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and myself, with
the attendance of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs
together with the foreign ministers and officials of OIC member states
and Western countries, as well as international organisations –
reaffirmed the commitment of the participants to the effective
implementation of the measures set in the resolution.
16



This was a major step
towards strengthening the foundations of tolerance and respect for
religious diversity17 as well as
enhancing the promotion and protection
of human rights and fundamental freedoms around the world18.




The OIC, which was the
initiator of Resolution 16/18, worked in close cooperation in the
drafting process with the United States and the European Union in
bringing about a breakthrough on 21 March.




The 2011 HRC
resolution is a genuine effort to usher in an era of understanding on
the issue of religious intolerance. It gives the widest margin of
freedom of expression, and reiterates the rejection of discrimination,
incitement and stereotyping used by the other or against the symbols of
the followers of religions.
19



The
OIC has never
sought to limit freedom of expression, give Islam preferential
treatment, curtail creativity or allow discrimination against religious
minorities in Muslim countries.




The Islamic faith is
based on tolerance and acceptance of other religions. It does not
condone discrimination of human beings on the basis of caste, creed,
colour or faith20.
It falls on all the OIC member states as a sacred duty
to protect the lives and property of their non-Muslim citizens and to
treat them without discrimination of any form. Those elements who seek
to harm or threaten minority citizens must be subjected to law. Our
strong stand condemning violence perpetrated against non-Muslims
whether in Iraq, Egypt or Pakistan has been consistent.




No one has the right
to insult another for their beliefs or to incite hatred and prejudice.
That kind of behaviour is irresponsible and uncivilised.




We also cannot
overlook the fact that the world is diverse. The Western perception on
certain issues would differ from those held by others. We need to be
sensitive and appreciative of this reality, more so when it comes to
criticising or expressing views on issues related to religion and
culture.
21



The publication of
offensive cartoons of the Prophet six years ago that sparked outrage
across the Muslim world, the publicity around the film
Fitna and the more recent Qur’an
burnings represent incidents of incitement to hatred22 that
fuel an
atmosphere of dangerous mutual suspicion. Freedom of expression has to
be exercised with responsibility23. At the same time, violent
reactions
to provocations are also irresponsible and uncivilised and we condemn
them unequivocally.




It is not enough to
pass resolutions and laws against religious incitement. We should also
be diligent in launching more initiatives and measures towards better
intercultural dialogue and understanding at all levels – the political,
social, business, media, academic and religious.




Resolution 16/18
includes an eight-point approach that calls for various measures to
foster tolerance, including developing collaborative networks to build
mutual understanding and constructive action, creating appropriate
mechanisms within the government to identify and address potential
areas of tension between members of religious communities, and raising
awareness at the local, national and international levels on the
effects of negative religious stereotyping and incitement to religious
hatred.




The implementation of
the 2011 HRC Resolution 16/1824 would take us a long way in
making our
world a more peaceful and harmonious place to live in.

      •   Khaleej Times Habib Shaikh[Emphasis added.]2 October 2010 JEDDAH — The Organisation
        of the Islamic Conference has condemned the publication
        of the
        book Tyranny of Silence in Denmark.

        The book, containing blasphemous caricatures, hit the stores in Denmark
        on Thursday amid concerns over a backlash from the Muslim world.

        The cartoons were first published by the Jyllands-Posten newspaper in
        2005, resulting in condemnation from Muslims around the world.

        OIC
        Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu expressed his dismay
        and
        disappointment at the release of the book despite
        the fact that he, and some leaders of Muslim countries, had personally
        written letters to the foreign minister of Denmark, urging the Danish
        government to stop the publication
        of the book because of its
        highly provocative and inciting content. []

        Emphasising
        the moral responsibility of the political leadership of Denmark,
        Ihsanoglu said the publication
        of the book was a deliberate attempt to incite prejudice and animosity.

        This would undermine the ongoing efforts of the international community
        to promote understanding and peaceful coexistence among people of
        diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.

      • http://rt.com/news/islamic-un-stop-cartoons/Tajikistan,
        current
        chair of the Organization of the Islamic Conference
        (OIC) has
        sent an official
        request to the UN to pressure Norway to stop publication
        of a
        reprint of the book with scandalous cartoons featuring the prophet
        Mohammed. []
        The
        letter
        , addressed to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, voices
        the concern of 57 members of the OIC and calls
        on the UN to “take measures against” the plan, reports Interfax.



    1. Religious intolerance indeed.
      We must tolerate Islam, but Islam is not obligated to tolerate Judaism
      or Christianity. Tolerance is a one way street

* whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted
[3:85}

* fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism:
i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will
all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. [8:39]

* those who disbelieve, and die while they are disbelievers, it is they
on whom is the Curse of Allâh and of the angels and of mankind[2:161]

    1. Cultural
      understanding, yeah, right. They do not want us to understand Islam,
      they want us to accept a false image; a web of lies spun by Islam and
      its apologists. What passes for cultural understanding is really
      kitman: deception by obfuscation.
    2. Translation: resistance: Kuffar
      attempting to defend themselves and their culture. Phobia implies
      irrational fear and loathing. There is nothing irrational about
      loathing an institution which has a 1400 year track record of genocide,
      murdering an estimated 270*106  people.
    3. The VVP is not Nazi or fascist, it is
      democratic. The Secretary General is using loaded words as a smear
      tactic.
    4. The Immigrants in question are
      primarily
      Muslims, living as parasites on the state and breeding like rats. They
      tend to rape, riot and block the streets raising their butts to the
      moon. Whats not to oppose about that?
    5. Multiculturalism is the idea that
      an inferior culture which dominates women, assaults Queers, rapes
      indigenous girls, declares superiority, refuses to assimilate,
      threatens war, supports terrorism and constantly escalates its demands
      is equal to Western Civilization. Whats not to oppose about suicidal
      idiocy?
    6. Breivert’s Manifesto discusses ‘martyrdom
      operations’. “Yes, for certain religious members,certain measures are obviously in violation to biblical teachings but the amount of grace

      and divine
      goodwill generated at the point where you sacrifice everything (in the


      martyrdom
      operation) will provide you with an abundance of it, which will more
      than


      nullify any
      minor or serious sins committed prior to operation
      .” [pg. 846]
      On page 849 he lists three pieces of music to be played during
      ‘martyrdom operations’.  It is obvious that Breivert adopted enemy
      doctrine & tactics. It is obvious that he is not sane. While
      objective facts reproduced in the manifesto remain true and accepted by
      others, the manifesto is his alone. The manifesto is violent, see pages
      1028 & 1344; rational resistance is educational and political, not
      violent. Ihsanoglu is engaging in smear tactics, attempting to tar
      others with Breivert’s violence.
    7. Our views of Islam are founded on facts
      discovered in Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis &
      jurisprudence.  Check out ICCPR,
      Article 19. §1 guarantees the right to hold opinions. §2 guarantees
      freedom of expression.  The spewers of feces assert that rights
      are interdependent and cling bitterly to exaggerated ideas of Article
      20.
    8. In America we have the Declaration of
      Independence; God gave us
      the right to live;  & Bill of
      rights. “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech.”
      If prohibited from truthfully communicating warning of approaching
      danger, we would be rendered defenseless. We perceive Islam to be a
      threat because of its declaration & prosecution of perpetual war.
  1. If they were sincere about combating
    intolerance, they would outlaw the Qur’an because it inculcates
    intolerance.  Is there anything more intolerant than declaring us
    the worst
    of living creatures
    , cursing
    us
    and declaring
    perpetual war
    against us?
  2. When we share the facts outlined in point 9 above, we are accused
    of negative stereotyping. Exposing
    the fact that Allah commands Muslims to wage war against us, Moe
    confirmed the imperative & implemented it and Islamic law codifies
    it is not negative stereotyping, it is revealing objective factual
    reality. It does not mean that every Muslim is violent, it means that
    Islam requires every Muslim to pray for, pay for and or participate in
    aggressive conquest.
  3. Should being a made member of the Mafia carry a stigma?
    Why then should membership in Moe’s war cult not carry a stigma?
  4. Should members of the Mafia be subject to discrimination? Should they be closely
    observed; suspected of criminal activity? Why then should members of
    the cult which sanctifies
    & celebrates terrorism not be suspected, observed
    and excluded from our societies?
  5. If incitement were to be combated, the
    Qur’an would be outlawed. Of course, that is not the intention of the
    resolution’s authors and few will read 8:65, 9:38-39, 9:123 & 61:10-12 to learn why it should be. The Motoons simply depicted Moe as a terrorist, which,
    by his own admission, he was. They did not suggest that viewers should
    assault or wage war upon Muslims. The associated violence was incited
    by Imams in Mosques, not by the cartoonists or publisher.  Fitna, the short documentary by Geert Wilders,
    displayed the incitement contained in the Qur’an, which flows through
    Mosques.  Fitna did not incite violence, Imams did, resulting in
    riots.  They are demanding that all criticism of Islam be
    outlawed, twisting and perverting language in the process.

CNN.Com’s European outlet has a reminder of what
the Secretary General said about Fitna, the documentary video by Geert
Wilders.

  • “The
    film was a deliberate act of discrimination against Muslims” that aimed
    to “provoke unrest and intolerance,”
     

BBC
News informs us that Pakistan demanded prosecution.

Pakistan
said it told the Dutch ambassador that it was incumbent on the
Netherlands to prosecute Mr Wilders for defamation and deliberately
hurting Muslim sentiments, the official Associated Press of Pakistan
news agency reported.”

Wikipedia helps us to review the UN position.

After the
release of the film, a number of international organizations released
statements or otherwise responded to the film. United
Nations’
 Secretary-General Ban
Ki-moon
 stated on
on March 28, 2008 that

I condemn, in the strongest terms, the airing of Geert Wilders’
offensively anti-Islamic film. There is no justification for hate
speech or incitement to violence. The right of free expression is not
at stake here. I acknowledge the efforts of the Government of the
Netherlands to stop the broadcast of this film, and appeal for calm to
those understandably offended by it. Freedom must always be accompanied
by social responsibility.[133][134]
  1. If they really gave a damn about violence
    against persons based
    on their religion, they would be acting to protect Christians in Muslim
    dominated areas of Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria and
    other places where Christians are bombed, shot, burned and hacked to
    death with impunity.
  2. If there was any possibility of balanced & effective implementation the resolution, no Muslim
    would vote for it because it would require the outlawing of
    Islam.
  3. Tolerance respect
    for diversity? Really? Yeah, right. “Truly,
    the religion with Allâh is Islâm
    “. “Allâh!
    Lâ ilahâ illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)
    , ”

    -6- are forbidden to openly display wine or pork,
    (A: to ring church bells or display crosses,) recite the Torah or
    Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays;

    -7- and are forbidden to build new churches.

  4. What right is more fundamental than the
    right to life?  “then
    kill
    the Mushrikûn (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and
    capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every
    ambush.” “It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war
    (and free them with ransom) until he had made a
    great slaughter
    (among his enemies) in the land.” Get a clue: our
    blood and property are not sacred to Muslims.
  5. The sentence is unmitigated
    hypocrisy. What did Ban Ki-moon say about Fitna? Something about “hate
    speech” & “incitement”. Oh, yes, he said that freedom of expression
    was “not involved:.   Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu  called it a
    “deliberate act of discrimination”  intended to “provoke unrest
    and intolerance.  Reality check: Fitna shows the  violent
    Qur’an verses side by side with the Imams who  invoke them and the
    resulting riots.  Describing is not doing.
  6. Like most Muslim screeds, this one is redundant. One lie must be
    pointed out: discrimination. Reliance of
    the Traveller is Islamic law. This provision affects conquered Jews
    & Christians.

    O11.5

    Such non-Muslim subjects are obliged to
    comply with Islamic rules that pertain to the safety and indemnity of
    life, reputation, and property. In addition, they:

    -1- are penalized for committing adultery
    or theft, thought not for drunkenness;

    -2- are distinguished from
    Muslims in dress
    , wearing a wide cloth belt (zunnar);

    -3- are not greeted with
    “as-Salamu ‘alaykum
    “;

    -4- must keep to the side of
    the stree
    t;

    -5- may not build higher than
    or as high as the Muslims’ building
    s, though if they acquire a
    tall house, it is not razed;

    -6- are forbidden to openly
    display wine or pork, (A: to ring church bells or display crosses,)
    recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their
    funerals and feastdays
    ;

    -7- and are forbidden to build new
    churches
    .

    O11.6

    They are forbidden to reside in
    the Hijaz, meaning the area and towns around Mecca, Medina, and Yamama,

    for more than three days when the caliph allows them to enter there for
    something they need).

    O11.7

    A non-Muslim may not enter the Meccan
    Sacred Precinct (Haram) under any circumstances
    , or enter any
    other mosque without permission (A: nor may Muslims enter churches
    without their permission).

  7. Diversity, yeah, right.  Because
    there is more than one “religion” in the world, we must not mention the
    fact that one of them is a war cult, hellbent on conquering us, not a
    legitimate religion.
  8. Incitement to hatred? Muhammad
    bragged about being made victorious with terror. Allah declared that he
    would cast terror. Allah declared that he cast terror, resulting in the
    death of the men of a Jewish settlement and the enslavement of their
    widows and orphans. The fatal facts of Islam are truly worthy of hatred
    and contempt but exposing them is not incitement.
  9. Those of us who have become familiar with the damnable doctrines
    & practices of Islam have a responsibility
    to share our knowledge with our fellows and to encourage them to read
    Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis &
    jurisprudence.  There is no responsibility to be silent or soft
    pedal the truth.
  10. Examine the resolution’s
    call to action :

    5. Notes the speech given by
    Secretary-General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference at the
    fifteenth session of the Human Rights Council, and draws on his call on
    States to take the following actions
    to foster a domestic
    environment of religious tolerance, peace and respect, by:

    (a)
    Encouraging the creation of collaborative networks to build mutual
    understanding, promoting dialogue and inspiring constructive action

    towards shared policy goals and the pursuit of tangible outcomes, such
    as servicing projects in the fields of education, health, conflict
    prevention, employment, integration and media education;

    (b)
    Creating an appropriate
    mechanism within Governments
    to, inter alia, identify and
    address potential areas of tension between members of different
    religious communities, and assisting with conflict prevention and
    mediation;

    (c)
    Encouraging training of Government officials in effective outreach
    strategies;

    (d)
    Encouraging the efforts of leaders to discuss within their communities
    the causes of discrimination, and evolving strategies to counter these
    causes;

    (e) Speaking out against
    intolerance
    , including advocacy of religious
    hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or
    violence;

    (f) Adopting measures to criminalize
    incitement to imminent violence based on religion or belief
    ; {Review
    the definitions implicit in criticisms of Fitna and the Motoons!!!}

     

    (g)
    Understanding the need to combat denigration and negative religious
    stereotyping of persons, as well as incitement to religious hatred, by strategizing and
    harmonizing
    actions at the local, national, regional and
    international levels through, inter alia, education
    and awareness-building;  {Indoctrination.}

     

    (h)
    Recognizing that the open, constructive and respectful debate of ideas,
    as well as interfaith and intercultural dialogue at the local, national
    and international levels, can play a positive role in combating
    religious hatred, incitement and violence;

    6. Calls upon all States:

    (a) To
    take effective
    measures
    to ensure that public functionaries in the conduct of
    their public duties do not discriminate against an individual on the
    basis of religion or belief;

    (b) To
    foster religious freedom and pluralism by promoting the ability of
    members of all religious communities to manifest their religion, and to
    contribute openly and on an equal footing to society;

    (c) To
    encourage the representation and meaningful participation of
    individuals, irrespective of their religion, in all sectors of society;

    (d) To
    make a strong
    effort to counter religious profiling,
    which is understood to be
    the invidious use of religion as a criterion in conducting
    questionings, searches and other law enforcement investigative
    procedures;

    7. Encourages States to consider
    providing updates on efforts made in this regard as part of ongoing
    reporting to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for
    Human Rights;

    8. Calls upon States to adopt
    measures and policies to promote the full respect for and protection of
    places of worship and religious sites, cemeteries and shrines, and to
    take measures in cases where they are vulnerable to vandalism or
    destruction;

    9. Calls for strengthened
    international efforts to foster a global dialogue for the promotion of
    a culture of tolerance and peace at all levels, based on respect for
    human rights and diversity of religions and beliefs, and decides to
    convene a panel discussion on this issue at its seventeenth session,
    within existing resources.

Reply to Ryan on the Terrorism Fatwa

January 12, 2011

Ryan left a comment on Sheikh Tahir-ul-Qadri’s terrorism Fatwa: Bogus! I will insert superscripts in his screed to correlate to my responses to the important points.

Ok, now you are out and out lying. 1

First off, the reason the fight broke out with the Banu Quariyza was because they tried to double cross the muslims DESPITE HAVING A PEACE TREATY. That constitutes TREASON and in Jewish law (and every other law in existence) Treason equals death. under jewish law, everyone would have died. Given that tamiyaana is only trusted by one sect shalfi, his interpretation is rather suspect. As for the children; during those times, every single culture (non muslim alike) was of the opinion that when you attacked, any one old enough to carry a sword was a threat, and as such, dead meat. 2

Also, Your assumption that non muslims were not to recieve the same treatment as muslims is also flawed (they say “children” not muslim childrens, and during this time they were at war with…..you guessed it, non muslims.) If muhammed was only at war with non muslims, then how in gods name do you explain it? 3

Islam has first drawn a clear line of distinction between the combatants and the non-combatants of the enemy country. As far as the non-combatant population is concerned such as women, children, the old and the infirm, etc., the instructions of the Prophet are as follows:

“Do not kill any old person, any child or any woman” (Abu Dawud). “Do not kill the monks in monasteries” or “Do not kill the people who are sitting in places of worship” (Musnad of Ibn Hanbal).

During a war, the Prophet saw the corpse of a woman lying on the ground and observed: “She was not fighting. How then she came to be killed?” From this statement of the Prophet the exegetists and jurists have drawn the principle that those who are non-combatants should not be killed during or after the war
Why did he use “any?”

And why did he say “”Stop, O people, that I may give you ten rules for your guidance in the battlefield. Do not commit treachery or deviate from the right path. You must not mutilate dead bodies. Neither kill a child, nor a woman, nor an aged man. Bring no harm to the trees, nor burn them with fire, especially those which are fruitful. Slay not any of the enemy’s flock, save for your food. You are likely to pass by people who have devoted their lives to monastic services; leave them alone” to an army on the way to attack Byzantine territory? At that point, Islam was still confined to saudi arabia.

and how do you ecplain these statements

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah said: Do not desire an encounter with the enemy; but when you encounter them, be firm. – Muslim Book 019, Number 4313

It is narrated on the authority of ‘Abdullah that a woman was found killed in one of the battles fought by the Messenger of Allah . He disapproved of the killing of women and children. – Muslim Book 019, Number 4319

004.090
YUSUFALI: Except those who join a group between whom and you there is a treaty (of peace), or those who approach you with hearts restraining them from fighting you as well as fighting their own people. If Allah had pleased, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you: Therefore if they withdraw from you but fight you not, and (instead) send you (Guarantees of) peace, then Allah Hath opened no way for you (to war against them).
PICKTHAL: Except those who seek refuge with a people between whom and you there is a covenant, or (those who) come unto you because their hearts forbid them to make war on you or make war on their own folk. Had Allah willed He could have given them power over you so that assuredly they would have fought you. So, if they hold aloof from you and wage not war against you and offer you peace, Allah alloweth you no way against them.
SHAKIR: Except those who reach a people between whom and you there is an alliance, or who come to you, their hearts shrinking from fighting you or fighting their own people; and if Allah had pleased, He would have given them power over you, so that they should have certainly fought you; therefore if they withdraw from you and do not fight you and offer you peace, then Allah has not given you a way against them.

Again, showing that islam clearly intended for peace treaties to be honored.

And do not dispute with the followers of the Book except by what is best, except those of them who act unjustly, and say: We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you, and our God and your God is One, and to Him do we submit. [Qur’an 29:46]
In other places the Qur’an says:

Not all of them are alike; a party of the people of the Scripture stand for the right, they recite the Verses of God during the hours of the night, prostrating themselves in prayer. They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin Al-Ma’rûf and forbid Al-Munkar ; and they hasten in (all) good works; and they are among the righteous. And whatever good they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for God knows well those who are Al-Muttaqûn .(3:113-115)
And there are, certainly, among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), those who believe in God and in that which has been revealed to you, and in that which has been revealed to them, humbling themselves before God. They do not sell the Verses of God for a little price, for them is a reward with their Lord. Surely, God is Swift in account. ‘(3:199)’
Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in God and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve . [Qur’an 2:62]
Say (O Muhammad ): “O people of the Scripture : Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but God, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides God. [Qur’an 3:64]

Why did jewish life in muslim countries come across as better then the absolute hell hole that was chritisan europe?

The hanafi school of islamic thought has also made it quite clear that as far as they are concerned, defensive warfare is the only kind allowed, meaning that there are many who DON’T heed reliance of a traveller.

The Quran outranks the hadith, and the quran says that non muslims shouldn’t be slaughtered in battle (unlless they are enemy soldiers). Seriously, do real reserach rather then finding the scholars who agree with you and completely ignoring logic in order to suit your own world view4

1. Not being a Muslim, I don’t lie. I present evidence and make it easy for my readers to do their own research into my sources.

2.  The story of the genocide starts on 461 of The Life of Muhammad. In the hadith, turn to Sahih Bukhari 4.52.280 and Tafsir Ibn Kathir.

3.  I find nothing in the original post about unequal treatment. In that post, I established the motivation behind the prohibition of killing women and children. Dead bodies have no value on the slave market.  Turn to 33:26-27.  What happened to those women and children?  Islamic law has a clue for you.

o9.13 When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.

4. There are plenty of contradictory hadith, Moe allowed killing children in night raids and when using catapaults to throw burning projectiles.  Cherry picking does not overcome the fatal facts:

  • The Qur’an mandates jihad.
  • Allah commands Muslims to fight.
  • Moe confirmed the command.
  • Islamic law confirms the command.
  • Islamic history is a long string of raids, ghazwats & conquests.
  • Moe bragged about winning with terror.
  • The Sheikh lied, and I proved it.

If terrorism is harram, then Moe is hellbound.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:
The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.
2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

That is the testimony of Moe’s bosom buddies who fought shoulder to shoulder with him, not his enemies.  The facts are fatal to the  big lie.
