The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is — surprise, surprise — protesting Geert Wilders’ planned Mohammed Cartoon contest, which will be held later this year in the building housing the Lower Chamber (Tweede Kamer) of the Dutch parliament.
Here’s the OIC press release that came out earlier today:
OIC Strongly Condemns the Statement of a Dutch MP vowing to hold Cartoon Competition of the Prophet Mohamed Peace be upon Him
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has strongly condemned the statement made by the Dutch parliament member Geert Wilders vowing to hold a cartoon competition of the Prophet peace be upon Him, at the end of this year.
The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen expressed his deep concern over this provocative contest, which is arousing further incitement and sowing the seeds of hatred among the various followers of religions.
HE Dr. Al-Othaimeen affirmed that as the entire world is facing religious extremism and terrorism and needs peace, dialogue and tolerance, it is time to set up internationally binding legal instruments to prevent incitement, racism and discrimination, religious hatred and respect [sic] for all religions. Freedom of expression does not mean insulting the feelings of others; an attitude which cuts against the universal principle of respect for religions.
Notice that this document is far more than a complaint: it is a call to action, a reminder that the West must implement Resolution 16/18 and criminalize Islamic blasphemy. When it says, “it is time to set up internationally binding legal instruments to prevent incitement, racism and discrimination, religious hatred and respect [sic] for all religions,” the OIC means it wants a new United Nations resolution requiring all member states to pass laws in their national legislatures that criminalize insults against Islam and the Grand PBUH. And since the OIC now owns a controlling share of the UN, such a resolution is more than likely.
Justin Trudeau will be eager to obey, as will Angela Merkel, and probably Emmanuel Macron as well. If Hillary Clinton were president, she’d no doubt be trying to push the appropriate bill through Congress. But Donald Trump and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley have clearly indicated that they won’t allow any of the multiculti tripe from the UN to be pushed down America’s throat, so we citizens of the Great Satan have a short breathing space before we join the sharia-lovers in Europe and Canada.
In response to the OIC’s announcement, Parliamentary questions were presented by PVV MPs Geert Wilders and Raymond de Roon to the Minister of Foreign Affairs about the OIC’s condemnation of the contest:
|1.||Are you familiar with the condemnation by the OIC of the planned Mohammed cartoon contest in the Netherlands?|
|2.||Do you find it normal that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an organization that mainly consists of non-free Islamic countries where people have never heard of the concept of freedom of speech, interferes in the way in which freedom of opinion is exercised in the Netherlands?|
|3.||What do you think of Article 22 (a) of the so-called “Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam” adopted by the OIC, which states that opinions can only be freely expressed “in such manner as would not be contrary to the principles of the Shari’ah.”?|
|4.||Do you agree with us that the Sharia is reprehensible and barbaric and is at odds with freedom? Do you share our view that countries that cherish the Sharia, just like organizations that do so, such as the OIC, should not be taken seriously and must be forcefully opposed? If not, why not?|
|5.||Do you agree with us that the freedom of speech, as we know it in the Netherlands, should never be limited by the backward sharia, also and precisely if this means that we do something that is prohibited by the Sharia? If not, why not?|
|6.||Are you prepared to make very clear in the strictest terms to this sharia club called OIC and to all its member states that the Netherlands is not a sharia state but a free country, in contrast to the OIC countries, that the Netherlands strongly condemns sharia and does not care in the least about interfering statements? If not, why not?
