Christine Douglass-Williams on the Suppression of Free Speech in Canada

During last week’s OSCE/ODIHR conference in Warsaw, the Counterjihad Collective organized a side event entitled “Why Does Europe Hate Speech?” The following video from the event shows a talk given by Christine Douglass-Williams about the suppression of “hate speech” in Canada — which has grown increasingly totalitarian, especially under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Stephen Coughlin on the Quranic Concept of War

During last week’s OSCE/ODIHR conference in Warsaw, the Counterjihad Collective organized a side event entitled “Why Does Europe Hate Speech?” The following video from the event shows a talk given by retired Maj. Stephen Coughlin on the Muslim Brotherhood’s long-term plans for jihad — both kinetic and non-kinetic — which are even now bearing fruit, both at the OSCE and elsewhere.

In his talk Maj. Coughlin discusses, among other things, The Quranic Concept of War, a book that was written in 1979 by the serving Brigadier General S. K. Malik when he was chief of staff of the Pakistani army.[1] President Zia ul Haq declared the book to be his country’s military doctrine.[2] The Advocate General in Pakistan, a man named Brohi[3], affirmed that it was law.

So it’s a significant book, and well worth paying attention to.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading this video:

In his book Gen. Malik writes:

So spirited, zealous, complete and thorough should be our preparation for war that we should enter upon the ‘war of muscles’ having already won the ‘war of will’. Only a strategy that aims at striking terror into the hearts of the Enemies from the preparation stage can produce direct results and turn Liddell Hart’s dream into a reality. (p. 58)

He also says, “We do not even start the fighting war until we have already assessed that the war has been won. We have already made the enemy surrender mentally.”

From pages 57 to 58, he includes the four following quotes from the Koran to make his point.[4]

I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. (Qur’an 8: 12)

Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers. (Qur’an 3: 151)

And those of the People of the Book who aided them, Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts, so that some ye slew, and some ye made prisoners [the women and the children]. And he made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, and of a land which ye had not frequented (before). And Allah has power over all things. (Qur’an 33: 26-27)

Let not the unbelievers think that they can get the better (of the Godly): they will never frustrate them. Against them make ready your strength of the utmost of your power, including steeds of war to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah any your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. (Qur’an 8:56-60)

Based on the above citations from the Koran, Gen. Malik concludes:[5]

TERROR struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means; it is an end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet and merge. TERROR is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is the decision we wish to impose upon him.

Thus his conclusion is that the Quranic concept of war is terror, with four quotes from the Koran to back up his argument. His final sentences at the end of the same chapter are very important:

Secure Freedom to the OSCE: Explicitly Rescind the HDIM Code of Conduct

The following formal recommendations were submitted by Secure Freedom (the Center for Security Policy) to OSCE/ODIHR after this year’s conference in Warsaw.

For more on the OSCE’s Code of Conduct, see “The Successful Subversion of the OSCE”.

Recommendations to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE)
Participating States and Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR)
At the Human Dimension Implementation Meeting (HDIM), Warsaw, Poland

Working Sessions 10 and 11: Fundamental Freedoms I and II

September 17, 2018

Pursuant to PC.DEC/476 23 May 2002, Annex I, Paragraph 5,[1] below please find the recommendations of Secure Freedom, a civil society organization engaged in the human dimension in the United States of America, with respect to Fundamental Freedoms, including inter alia freedom of expression, thought, belief, conscience, and political opinion.

I. Background: ODIHR Makes Multiple Attempts to Violate Freedom of Expression

On behalf of the 28 civil society representatives from 14 countries who signed a letter of concern to ODIHR Director Ingibjörg Sólrún Gísladóttir over repeated attempts to shut down fundamental freedoms including freedom of expression within the OSCE context,[2] and recalling the letter from Members of Parliament expressing a similar concern,[3] Secure Freedom now welcomes and reinforces the Opening Statement by the United States, objecting “to certain provisions of the Code of Conduct promulgated by ODIHR [that] amount to content-based restrictions on the participation of civil society.”[4]

It is shameful that an organization founded to safeguard fundamental freedoms, which has human rights in its very name, should resort to censorship as ODIHR has.

As described multiple times in the past, the facts are these.

During the 2017 HDIM, the ODIHR moderator first reminded, then required, virtually every civil society intervenor who expressed concerns over Europe’s inadequately vetted immigration and continued illegal presence of those who subscribe to the totalitarian Islamic doctrine of Sharia, to abide by OSCE commitments with respect to tolerance and diversity.[5]

II. European Court of Human Rights Held Sharia was Incompatible with Democratic Society

ODIHR did this in spite of the decision of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) on July 31, 2001, that “the institution of Sharia law and a theocratic regime, were incompatible with the requirements of a democratic society.”[6]

The Court held that the sanctions imposed on the applicants could reasonably be considered to meet a pressing social need for the protection of democratic society, since, “on the pretext of giving a different meaning to the principle of secularism, the leaders of the Refah Partisi had declared their intention to establish a plurality of legal systems based on differences in religious belief, to institute Islamic law (the Sharia), a system of law that was in marked contrast to the values embodied in the Convention.”[1]

The ban was upheld by the ECtHR on February 13, 2003. Noting that the Welfare Party had pledged to set up a regime based on the Shari’ah, the Court found that, “a sharia-based regime was incompatible with the Convention, in particular, as regards the rules of criminal law and procedure, the place given to women in the legal order and its interference in all spheres of private and public life in accordance with religious precepts.”[2] It considered that “sharia, which faithfully reflects the dogmas and divine rules laid down by religion, is stable and invariable.”[3]

III. ODIHR, Not Civil Society, Must Conform to OSCE Commitments

Regardless of the merits, Secure Freedom challenges ODIHR staff to produce a single joint statement by Participating States that stipulates civil society must conform to Participating States’ commitments.

Ironically, it is ODIHR staff, not civil society, that must adhere to OSCE Participating States’ commitments.

The OSCE Code of Conduct for Staff/Mission Members, which is agreed upon by Participating States and not simply an ODIHR fabrication, states that OSCE Staff and Mission Members “shall comply with the… commitments of the OSCE.”[7]

IV. ODIHR Must Abide by Commitments to Freedom of Thought, Conscience, Belief, Information, and Expression

OSCE commitments by which ODIHR is bound include, inter alia:

OSCE Warsaw: “Islamophobic” Intervention Interrupted

2018 Human Dimension Implementation Meeting
Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe
Monday, 17 September 2018

Working Session 11
Fundamental Freedoms I, Including Freedom of Expression

The following intervention was read yesterday by Debra Anderson, representing Mission Liberty. Ms. Anderson was discussing the attempts by Somali Muslims to implement sharia in Minnesota when she was interrupted by someone — not a member of the OSCE staff — who said that her intervention must be shut down, because it was Islamophobic.

Interestingly enough, the OSCE moderator did not terminate the intervention, but reprimanded the person who interrupted, and allowed Ms. Anderson to continue.
