We’ve encountered the “Danish” activist Bashy Quraishy here many times in the past when reporting on OSCE events.
The esteemed Mr. Quraishy is the General Secretary of EMISCO (European Muslim Initiative for Social Cohesion), which often plays a prominent role in OSCE Human Dimension meetings in Warsaw.
Last year Mr. Quraishy even honored us with his presence here in the comments at Gates of Vienna. For the full sequence of articles and exchanges, see these posts:

- Bashy Quraishy: “A Growing Islamophobic Trend in All OSCE Sessions”
This year Bashy Quraishy returned to OSCE Warsaw to slit the weasand of Islamophobia once and for all. He is very unhappy with people who display their Islamophobic tendencies at OSCE sessions, among whom he surely must number Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, Clare Lopez, Debbie Anderson, Henrik Clausen, Dave Petteys, John Andrews, and all the other Counterjihad activists who ruffle his scarf of many colors with their diligent toils at ODIHR.
In the following intervention from the plenary in Warsaw, you’ll hear Mr. Quraishy inveigh against Islamophobia and issue a demand for a universal “right to be free of anti-Islamic propaganda”. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this clip:
