His Excellency Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu
Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference
addressed the
9th Session of the Standing Committee for Information & Cultural Affairs in Dakar,
Republic Of Senegal  during the second week of October. ’10.  The interesting parts are
excerpted below, followed by my commentary, linked through
superscripts. You can read the entire speech in context through this link.

The rising intolerance of Islamic culture and traditions1 being
perpetrated by marginal yet backed by powerful and motivated patrons
and ultra right wing extremist political parties2 and their followers in parts
of the western world is a matter of alarm to all Muslims .

Over the past five years, the OIC had to face daunting and formidable
challenges that sought to demean, insult and make mockery of our
beloved and revered Prophet Muhammad3 (PBUH), defile the Holy Quran and distort the principles of tolerance4 and compassion5 embodied in Islam.

The recent incidents of publication of a book containing the insulting
cartoons of the noble Prophet (PBUH) by a Danish newspaper and the call
to burn the Holy Quran by a pastor in Florida were disseminated by mass
media. It fell on the General Secretariat and the Member States us to
sensitize the conscience of the international community through use of
the media of the dangerous implications6
of such actions.

Mr. President, Excellencies,

The OIC had to stand up to a well orchestrated and determined attack to
undermine the overwhelming richness and greatness of Islamic culture
and traditions and demonize Muslims as terrorists and extremists7.

The perpetrators and activists of Islamophobia are doing their best in
using all available mechanisms to corrupt the mindset of the ordinary
people, in particular the youths, in developing a distorted view8 of Islam and Muslims.

This attack on our poses a serious threat to global peace and security9. We are engaged with our Western counterparts to sensitize them of the mischief being caused by
intolerance of Islam and Muslims and to encourage them to learn, understand and appreciate the values of tolerance and embracement of diversity10 that lies at the heart
of Islamic culture.

This culture of intolerance against Muslims and Islam has to be
countered by a more committed political will11 on the part of the OIC Member States and I would appeal to all that we realize that it is high time to rise to the occasion.

Our policy to deal with the issue should not be based on vengeance or
revenge but to effectively prove the senseless absurdity and
foolhardiness of those involved in taking the world towards the brink
of instability and political and social disorder12.


The Observatory has undertaken an active role on countering attacks on
our culture by issuing rejoinders and statements of condemnations. At
the same time we are actively engaged with the political leadership and
reputed international organizations and institutions of the west to
underscore our concerns and to draw them to join us on a common
platform to combat this dangerous phenomenon13.

  1. We can not and will
    not tolerate Islam’s postulate of divine mandate to conquer &
    subjugate the entire world, killing, raping and pillaging in the

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 459:

      Narrated Ibn Muhairiz:

      I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Said Al-Khudri and sat beside him and
      asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Said said, “We
      went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we
      received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and
      celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So
      when we intended to do coitus interrupt us, we said, ‘How can we do
      coitus interruptus before asking Allah’s Apostle who is present among
      us?” We asked (him) about it and he said, ‘It is better for you not to
      do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to
      exist, it will exist.”

    4. Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 627:

      Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:

      The Prophet sent a Sariya towards Najd and I was in it, and our share
      from the booty amounted to twelve camels each, and we were given an
      additional camel each. So we returned with thirteen camels each.

  2. “Ultra right wing extremist
    political parties” paints with a broad brush, smearing those who object
    to Islamization of Western Civilization with the taint of Nazism. The
    slur is spewed without naming the parties, specifying their platforms,
    or offering any evidence.
  3. Muhammad has been dead since 638.
    He can not suffer any material harm from insults.  We are
    condemned for pointing out the facts that he married a six year old
    girl and consumated the marriage three years later.  We are
    condemned for pointing out the fact that he was a terrrorist. We found
    those facts redcorded in Islam’s own canon of oral tradition, from his
    companions, not from his enemies. Is it possible that Allah selected
    such a man to be his final prophet?

    1. Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64:

      Narrated ‘Aisha:

      that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he
      consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she
      remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

    2. 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).

  4. Tolerance? In Islam?? Where???
    Allah will not tolerate any competitors!  [Emphasis added.]

    1. 3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than
      Islâm, it will never be accepted of him,
      and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.
  5. We can also see how
    compassionate Allah & Moe are.[Emphasis added.]

    1. 24:2. The woman and the man guilty of illegal
      sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in
      their case
      in a punishment prescribed by Allâh, if you believe in Allâh and the
      Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment.
      (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but
      if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death,
      according to Allâh’s Law).
  6. Once again the veiled threat
    is repeated. “dangerous implications”. Muslims, stirred up by rabble
    rousing sermons, riot, destroying property and killing people. Instead
    of blaming the instigators & perpetrators, Muslims and their
    apologists blame Islam’s critics.
  7. Terrorism is an intrinsic
    sacrament of Islam, Established by Allah’s word and Moe’s excellent
    example. [Emphasis added.]

    1. 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).
    2. 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.”
    3. 8:57. If thou comest on them in the war, deal with
      them so as to strike fear
      in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.
    4. 8:60. Against them make ready your strength to the
      utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into
      (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others
      besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye
      shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall
      not be treated unjustly.
    5. 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.
    6. 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).
    7. 1. Allah
      made me victorious by awe
      , (by His frightening my enemies) for a
      distance of one month’s journey. [Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331]
  8. The real ‘distorted view’ is the
    “great religion of peace” malarkey spewed by Presidtnts Clinton, Bush
    & Obama.
  9. The threat to global peace and
    security comes from Islam’s demonic mandate to genocidal conquest.
    Allah demands “great slaughter” and killing and wounding “many of
    them”. [Emphasis added.]

    1. 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have
      prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great
      (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good
      of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but
      Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty,
    2. 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh’s
      Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and
      wounded many of them
      , then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e.
      take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity
      (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits
      Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by
      Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till
      they embrace Islâm (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the
      Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been
      Allâh’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without
      you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others.
      But those who are killed in the Way of Allâh, He will never let their
      deeds be lost,
  10. Tolerance & diversity! Are Jews
    allowed to enter Saudi Arabia?  How many churches are there in
    that kingdom?
  11. That paragraph is a coded call for
    increased support for the annual resolutions “combatting defamation of
    religions” and the push for a binding protocol to insert the
    resolutions into ICERD.
  12. The implication is
    that, by criticizing Islam, we  bring the world to the brink of
    war. That is another incarnation of the veiled threat.
  13. What is the danger in exposing
    the reality of Islamic doctrine & practice to public view?
    The only real danger comes from Muslims motivated to kill by those
