Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu on Islamophobia at OIC-CFM 39

An excerpt from a statement by Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation at the Thirty-Ninth Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of OIC Member States Date: 15/11/2012 -
[All emphasis and links added.]

Islamophobia remains a source of great concern for us. We have, at the OIC, exerted considerable and dedicated efforts to combat this phenomenon whose pace has increased recently as shown in the reports of the OIC Islamophobia Observatory, the last of which is the fifth report submitted to you. We have raised this issue with political and religious elites we have met in different parts of the world, underscoring its dangerous impacts on the prevalence of international peace and security. 

Thanks to these efforts, we managed to convince the UN Human Rights Council, consistent with the eight points I proposed, to adopt the consensual resolution 16/18 which includes a genuine condemnation of the defamation of religions and discrimination against people on religious grounds. Paragraph 6 of the resolution provides for the adoption of measures to criminalize incitement to violence based on religion or belief. The UN General Assembly adopted the resolution by consensus under number 66/167. 

To enhance the chances of these two resolutions being implemented on the ground, I put forward 'the Istanbul process' initiative in July 2011 which reaffirms the two resolutions, followed by a similar initiative in Washington in December of the same year. A third initiative will follow in England in the name of the European Union in December this year. Meanwhile, we are still struggling to overcome the obstacles preventing the actual implementation of these initiatives. The adoption of these two consensual resolutions by the UN Human Rights Council and the General Assembly respectively is indeed a positive development that gives us the opportunity to concentrate on important issues away from politicization and polarization. It also gives us the opportunity to introduce the 'Istanbul Process'. I am convinced that the confidence-building efforts exerted in the 'Istanbul Process' meeting and approved by international and regional stakeholders will pave the way for increased confidence and cooperation between all parties. 

After the launch of the defamatory film 'Innocence of Muslims' which insults Islam and Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), and the subsequent disorders which caused many deaths including the killing of the US Ambassador in Libya, I condemned in the strongest terms the film, the killing of US officials and the attack on the US Embassy in Cairo, insisting that the expression of anger and condemnation should not be through killing or the destruction of property. Moreover, we issued a joint statement with the European Union, the League of Arab States and the African Union denouncing strongly the perpetrators of these crimes.



    Phobia implies an irrational fear or loathing. Exactly what is irrational about fearing a war cult which has sent an estimated 270*106  people to early graves?  Exactly what is irrational about loathing  a war cult whose doctrine declares perpetual war against us, denies the sanctity of our lives & property, denies our human rights and imposes the death penalty on us because we do not join it

peace and security

    International peace & security are not threatened by fear & loathing of Islam. Peace and security are not negatively impacted by factual exposure of the damnable doctrines & practices of Islam. Peace and security  are threatened by the damnable doctrines of Islam and the efforts of Muslims to implement those doctrines.

    Muslims riot and raise Hell because of their arrogance, supremacism & triumphalism; roused by the rabid rants of their Imams at Jumah Salat, not because of anything we utter and publish.  Take a fresh, close look at FITNA and what Ban Ki-moon said about it.  The movie is not hate speech neither is it incitement, it is an exposure of hate speech and incitement.

Reuters quotes U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon about Fitna:"There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence," Ban said in a statement. "The right of free expression is not at stake here."


defamation of religions

    Elimination of the defamation meme from the most recent UN resolutions was the critical selling point that facilitated their passage by acclamation.  If the defamation provisions had remained in the resolutions, tere would have been votes, many of them against the resolutions.  

    Take a fresh, close look at how human rights NGOs praised and celebrated the new resolutions and how I condemned them.  My analysis is confirmed, Article 19 & Human Rights First are shown to be willing victims of al-Taqiyya. 

    Previous resolutions complained bitterly about associating Islam with terrorism: 

L.32/Rev.1 Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief  Oral revision not reflected in this version.

10. Also emphasizes that no religion should be equated with terrorism, as this
may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion
or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;
7. Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and wrongly
associated with human rights violations and terrorism; [combating defamation / vilification of Islam]

    Who created the association? Moe did it! The proof is outlined below the horizontal line with citations to the Qur'an, hadith, tafsir & Sira.  This is what they are bitching about; what they seek to outlaw. They want to persecute me, fine, imprison and decapitate me for revealing these fatal facts to you. 

Web definitions:
a false accusation of an offense or a malicious misrepresentation of someone's words or actions.

    Falsity is a critical element of defamation.  If it ain't false, it ain't defamatory.  Exactly what is false in FITNA?  Exactly what is false in the outline of fatal facts below? 

defamatory film 'Innocence of Muslims

     Exactly what part of The Innocence of Muslims is false?   Here is my documentation of the video:

    Is terrorism intrinsic to Islam or is it not?  Was Moe a bastard? Neither hadith nor Sira indicate that, is it really important? His paternity has been a subject of scholarly speculation.  He did claim, in one hadith, to be Christ's paternal half brother. 

    Did Moe hide under his wife's skirt? Yes, he did, its in the Sira.  Did her cousin fake the Qur'an? I doubt it, I find no evidence for it, but the bit about the gap in revelations is in the Sira. 

    Did Moe converse with a donkey? It is in an obscure book by Ibn kathir and it is found in the Encyclopedia of Canonical Hadith.

    Was Moe a lecher? Did he put words in the idol's mouth to sanction it? Yes, its in the hadith.   Was Moe an extortioner? Yes, his extortion letters are on record.  Did he marry a six year old girl?  Yes, its in the hadith and Sira.

    Did he have an old lady murdered? Yes, its in the Sira.  Did he have Kinnana tortured to death? Yes, but not exactly as depicted.  Its in the Sira. 

    Did he do it with Miriam in Hafsa's bed?  Yes, its in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.  Was Moe queer? Did he jigger his camels? I don't know, I did not see it in the movie and I did not find it in the books.  I bring that up because I found another analysis of the trailer to which I have added links. It is included  immediately below.   I find that, on the whole, the trailer is not false and defamatory, its major conceptual content is true.

Thanks to Louis Palme for sending us the following references:

Was the “Innocence of Muslims” video trailer accurate?

Most of us have seen “Innocence of the Muslims” the film trailer that sparked rioting which resulted in over 50 dead and millions of dollars of damage.  ...

Listed below are the scenes (by time-stamp and theme) along with the references to Islamic sacred texts that provide support for the assertions:

3:02 - Muhammad’s father is unknown. (His father died before he was born, and his mother never raised him.) Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad, para. 105
Page 68 on pdf 58 mentions marriage & conception of Moe through death of Abdullah.  I found no uncertainty about . Moe's parentage.

3:45 - Young Muhammad taking orders from and married to older Khadija – Ishaq, para. 120

4:43 -Muhammad buries his face in Khadija’s garments to determine if visions are divine or satanic – Ishaq, para. 154

Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Qur’an its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief."

9:11 - Abu Bakr gives his nine-year-old Aisha in marriage to fifty-five-year-old Muhammad -- Sahih al-Bukhari Vol. 5, No. 234

9:27 - Muhammad and Omar are “gay.” (With nineteen wives and concubines, Muhammad had very few children and no male heirs.) References to bizarre sexual behavior can be found in Sahih al-Bukhari, Book 4, No. 143, Sahih al-Bukhari, No. 2393, and Sahih Muslim, Nos. 3663 and 3674. The story about Omar apparently comes from this Shiite cleric’s speech:
I do not find No.2393 in Khan's translation, there is nothing sexual in Aisha' Bewley's 2393. Sahih Muslim 2393 is also innocent. Muslim 10.3663 is innocent, likewise 10.3674.

The Innocent Prophet

    Imran Firasat's upcoming video is sure to outrage Muslims. Here is the trailer. Note: Firasat has juxtaposed Chapter & Verse. [Big deal.] The military intelligence offices of the U.S. & Canadian governments have been seeking information about this video, presumably because they expect it to influence enemy activity against our forces in the field. 

    They should learn tha fatal facts of Islam herein referenced and wise up to the fact that Islamic violence is doctrine driven, not grievance driven. 

    Did the Almighty Creator select as his final Prophet and Messenger an unrepentant pederast, lecher, false prophet, murderer and genocidal warlord?  Or is Islam the world's most successful con game? 

    If Moe was a false prophet and Islam is a con game; a continuing criminal enterprise guilty of war crimes against humanity, then why in Hell should warning the world about it be a criminal offense? 

    If Moe was a true Prophet, Allah is the Almighty Creator and Islam is true, a perfect religion innocent of offensive, genocidal & terrorist conquest then post proof in a comment: refute each and every fatal fact presented and documented below the horizontal line.  Good luck with that.
