VICTORY Is Not Defeat

OIC: Islamic Hypocrisy on Parade

OIC: Islamic Hypocrisy on Parade

Weeks after the vote, the propaganda continues to flow from dhimmis
chortling over their Pyhrric victory.  Who better to deflate their
balloon than Pakistan’s U.N. Ambassador?  Was anyone
listening?  Was anyone paying attention?  Of course not, that
would interfere with their beloved fantasies.

hard slog because of connection problems and slow typing speed. This is
probably not perfect word for word, but it is close.

Owing to the length and target rich environment, I

Pakistan (on behalf of
the OIC)

Mr. Zamir Akram


Thank you Mr. President. On behalf of the OIC countries, I have the
honor to introduce the draft resolution entitled “combating
intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of and
discrimination, incitement to violence and violence against persons
based on religion or belief contained in document L.38.

Mr. President: this resolution addresses a number of
issues1 over which the OIC has been expressing concern over the years.
having said  that, I wish to state categorically that this
resolution does not replace earlier resolutions on combating
defamation.2 which were adopted by the Human Rights Council  and
remain valid.  This resolution L.38  is an attempt on the
part of the oic to build consensus3 on an issue of vital importance
not only to Muslims but to people of all religions  and beliefs by
identifying  ways and means to deal with the growing problems of
religious incitement4 and discrimination and incitement to hatred5 and violence6 based on
religion or belief.

the heart of this resolution are a series of practical steps7
which need to be taken by states in order to address
this problem. This resolution addresses the core issues in a manner
that is acceptable to all including in  a legal sense, thus
seeking to bring all stake holders on board.  The OIC has gone
the extra mile to maintain a spirit of constructive engagement8 with all
partners during this process of consultation.

primary objective is to ensure that this text,
which will hopefully be adopted by consensus, will bind us all to the
commitments contained therein and oblige us all to ensure compliance
with its decisions.

President: Muslims around the world continue to be confronted with ever increasing instances of intolerance, negative stereotyping10, stigmatization, discrimination  and violence on the basis of their religion; Islam.  Objective academic studies reveal
that following the end of the cold war, the pernicious doctrine of a
clash of civilizations signaled the start of a narrative that required
the construction of a new enemy11 to replace the global threat of
Communism with the so-called menace of Islam.

The reprehensible acts of terrorism on September 11,
2001 provided the trigger to unleash the clash of civilizations to the
forefront of global politics.12 In the general Western view, no
distinction was made between a handful of extremists and terrorists13 and
the overwhelming majority of peaceful and law abiding Muslims14
living around the world. To make matters worse, against the backdrop of
the recent global economic crisis, these fears of Islam and Muslims are
now being manipulated by irresponsible and bigoted Western politicians15
to gain political mileage  in their countries, unfortunately, with
remarkable success.

Terms such as Islamofascists have become common.
Even the Qur’an has not been spared;16 it has been compared to Hitler’s
Mein Kampf. More recently, it was tried for religious crimes and
burnt.  Minarets at mosques deliberately depicted on posters
as missiles, have been banned. There have even been restrictions on
shops selling halal food, while no such restrictions exist on kosher
food outlets which are similar.

There is also increasing discrimination against Muslims in various
parts of the world.  They are being subjected to racial profiling
which confronts them with intractable problems at every border where
they are checked and re-checked.17 Their businesses are repeatedly
scrutinized and their places of worship disallowed or desecrated.
They are made to feel unwelcome in societies where they live as

One prominent politician has recently organized
hearings that seek to put on trial the entire Muslim community and are
obviously designed to stoke fears against Muslims in that

Mr. President, the efforts by the oic to defend
our religion, our holy book and our prophet  and our people have
often been misrepresented as being contrary to international human
rights principles and laws, and in particular, rejected as undermining
the freedom of expression or opinion18. The reality is different.
It is therefore appropriate in such a position, for us to try and
explain our faith and our principles. I hope, Mr. President, you will
give me a bit of extra time to do so.

Mr.  President: the Qur’an lays great emphasis on the
need for religious tolerance19 as well as freedom of thought and
opinion.  In chapter 2, verse 256, the Qur’an states there is no
compulsion in religion.20 In chapter 18, verse 29, the Qur’an
maintains that truth is from your Lord, so let him who please believe
and him who please disbelieve.21 As regards freedom of
thought and opinion in Islam, the Qur’an states, in chapter 16, in verse 125 invite
all to the way of your creator with wisdom and arguments that are the
best and most gracious.  The Qur’an and the traditions of the holy
prophet also lay emphasis on the treatment of non-Muslims.
According to Prophet Muhammad, (PBUH), he who hurts a non-Muslim
citizen of a Muslim state I am his adversary and I shall be his
adversary on the day of  judgment.

Mr. President: it is also instructive for us to know
that we Muslims are not only bound by temporal laws to respect human
rights but by divine enjunctions contained in the Qur’an.  The
basic human rights as ordained in the Qur’an23 include the
rights to life,  individual freedom, justice, equality, privacy, association
and basic necessities of life or minimum standard of living. These
obligations also include respect for women,  equality among human
beings, freedom of expression, protection from arbitrary imprisonment
and the right to oppose tyranny and injustice.  the last sermon of
the prophet (PBUH) is, in itself, a comprehensive charter of human
rights.  Islam has even established a complete code for the right
of combatants in war. Measures for the protection of all combatants as
well as homes and property belonging to them.24

Mr. President: I have dwelt at length on these characteristics of Islam
because I want to underscore the common principles that underlie our
faith and the requirements of international law including international
human rights and humanitarian law.  Indeed, given the tremendous
contributions by Islam in various fields of human activity over
the  years, these principles have contributed to the evolution of
the very principles that we are trying to uphold today.

Mr. President, we sincerely believe that that irrespective of our
different cultural backgrounds and traditions, there is a shared
interest for all of us to show respect for each other’s religions and
beliefs25 as well as to prevent any advocacy of religious hatred and
intolerance, discrimination and incitement26 on the basis of religion or

The resolution under consideration seeks to achieve
these laudable objectives through a range of actions by states
including administrative steps, measures to criminalize imminent
violence, training and awareness programs, promotion of dialogue and
understanding at all levels.   The resolution also calls for
a global dialogue for the promotion of a culture of tolerance and peace
and in this context it decides to convene a panel discussion in the
Human Rights Council.  We hope that this resolution will be
adopted by consensus.  Before concluding, Mr. President, I would
like to place on record my appreciation for the support and cooperation
of all my colleagues in the oic  and in particular, members of
the core group of ambassadors that we set up to work out this
resolution.  I have truly benefited from the wisdom and advice and
without their support this text would not have been possible.  I
would also like to thank the Secretary General of the oic whose
support and guidance made this resolution possible.  In addition I
would like to express my appreciation — my sincere appreciation to all
our partners in the various groups, especially the ambassadors of the
U.S. and the U.K. on behalf of the European Union for their cooperative
and constructive approach.  Let me also thank the ambassadors from
the African group, grulac and Croatia for their cooperation and
engagement in this effort. I am glad that this oic initiative has
met with broad cross regional support which will send out a strong
message of unity from this council. Finally I would  like to thank
the experts from Pakistan, the U.S., the U.K. and other countries for
their tireless efforts to work out the text of this resolution. I thank
you Mr. president.

  1. Refer to previous resolutionsI and the Islamophobia ReportsII
    to identify those issues. The expression includes them by reference,
    excluding nothing. The ‘defamation of Islam’ concept has not been
  2. There you have the categorical statement: the ‘defamation’ construct has not been supplanted, it stands undiminished, included by reference to previous resolutions which are not abrogated.
  3. “Build consensus” means rope the suckers in by
    concealing the hook with external references so they can pretend there
    is no hook and swallow it with relish.
  4. “Religious incitement” lacks a common definition.
    to Muslims, it includes any negative reference to any aspect of their
    cult. To reasonable people possessing common sense, it includes the
    rabble rousing rants at Jumah Salat which incite riots.
  5. Incitement to hatred, how horrible! The
    Ambassador relies on your ignorance of Al-Wala’ Wa’l-Bara’III
    “Both the Book and the Sunnah have enjoined the community to love for
    the Sake of Allah, hate for His Sake, and to take both friends and
    enemies for His Sake
    ; to the point that one would prefer to be
    cast into the flames rather than return to disbelief, after having been
    saved by Allah from it.” Hatred for the sake of Allah.  Let that
    sink in for a moment.
  6. When Geert Wilders published Fitna, Secretary
    General Ban Ki-moon had something instructive to say. I want you to
    recognize and remember it. Exactly what hate speech did Wilders
    utter?  How did he incite violence??

    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.”
  7. Translation: legislation; they demand that criticism of Islam be outlawed.
  8. Translation: we maintained ambiguity with smoke
    and mirrors to conceal the true meaning of the text from the unwary.
  9. By allowing this drek to pass without a vote; by
    failing to object to it, Obamination sucked it in, hook line and
    sinker, obligating itself to violate the first amendment.
  10. “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with terrorism and human rights
    That is what ‘negative stereotyping’ is about: they want to outlaw
    mention of the ayat & ahadith which sanctify, mandate and exemplify
    the fundamentally Islamic tactic: terrorism. IV
  11. The Armenian genocide was perpetrated by Communists. The numerous hijackings, shootings, fraggings & abductions of the 1970s & ’80s were perpetrated by
    Communists.  Beslan, London, Madrid & New York are figments of
    our imagination. Yeah, right.
  12. The bombings of 1993 & 2005 don’t count, do they?  Yeah, right, it all began in 2001, not in 623 with raids on camel caravans.
  13. The same old shibboleth: “tiny minority of
    extremists”. What did Allah & Moe say about casting terror? IV Jihad is a
    “communal obligation”V
    It does not require the universal participation of the Ummah unless Dar
    Ul-Islam is invaded and in danger of being overrun.
  14. Are they Muslims or not? Do they practice Islam
    or not? Do they obey Allah or not? Do they emulate Moe or not?
    Which of them will abjure what Allah said? Which of them will abjure
    what Moe said? “I will cast terror.”; “Allah cast terror.” & “I
    have been made victorious with terror.”. IV Denouncing those statements is an act of apostasy, subjecting  the
    Muslim who does to to the death penalty. VI
  15. This refers to Rep. Peter King and the hearing
    in the Homeland Security Committee. They investigated ‘radicalization’
    & ‘co-operation’, not Islam.
  16. Why should the Qur’an be exempt from questioning
    & criticism?  Does it or does it not sanctify & mandate
    terrorism? IV Does it or does it not
    command global conquest?VII
    Does it or does it not sanction rape?VIII Does it or does it not
    sanction misogyny?IX
  17. Beslan, London, Madrid, WTC1 & WTC2 were all
    perpetrated by blond, blue eyed Baptists?  Were all those plots
    interdicted by lucky police & investigators plotted by
    Methodists? Who is it that is promised eternity in the celestial
    bordello X,
    gaining Brownie Points for any step taken to enrage or injure us?XI
  18. They want to make this blog post illegal;
    uttering and publishing it a criminal act punishable by fine and
    imprisonment. They would jail cartoonists & film makers. But no
    breech of human rights; perish the thought.
  19. Allah explicitly said that whoever sought a
    different religion, it would never be accepted of him.XII Allah
    commanded Muslims to wage perpetual war against pagans, Jews,
    Christians & Zoroastrians. VII How tolerant!!!
  20. “No compulsion in religion” : “Fight them until”…”only
    Allah is worshiped”. The conflict is resolved by the science of
    Latter revelations abrogate earlier revelations with which they
    conflict. Surah At-Taubah was the last or next to last to be
    revealed.  Surah Al-Baqarah 256 is abrogated, superseded by a less
    tolerant verse.
  21. Surah Al-Kahf was number 69 in sequence of
    revelation: it is abrogated.  The Ambassador cites abrogated
    verses because he is confident that we are unaware of the science of
    abrogation. He is practicing kitman: deceit by obfuscation.
  22. A search of Sahih
    , Sahih Muslim,
    Sunan Abu Dawud and Malik’s Muwatta failed to turn up
    that hadith. It did not show up in Tafsir
    Ibn Kathir
    . It did not turn up in Juynboll’s Encyclopedia of Canonical Hadith. Tafsir Ibn Kathir. It did not turn
    up in Juynboll’s Encyclopedia of
    Canonical Hadith
    . Tafsir Ibn
    . It did not turn up in Juynboll’s Encyclopedia of Canonical Hadith. Tafsir Ibn Kathir. It did not turn
    up in Juynboll’s Encyclopedia of
    Canonical Hadith
    . Tafsir Ibn
    . It did not turn up in Juynboll’s Encyclopedia of Canonical Hadith.
  23. Qur’anic rights are for Muslims only. If you
    will read Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387XIV, you will discover that
    our blood & property are not sacred to Muslims and we only obtain
    rights by becoming Muslims.
  24. The rules of warfare are laid out in Reliance of
    the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9.10. Be sure to read O9.12 through 9.15
    for a real eye opener.XV
  25. Of course Islam shows tremendous respect for
    Christianity; so much respect that they only curse us seventeen times
    every day. It declares us the worst of living creatures and denies the
    tenets of our faith. XVI
    Islam is so respectful!
  26. Incitement to violence; none of that in
    Islam is there?  “Urge the Muslims to fight”…:”
    if there be
    a hundred steadfast persons they will overcome a thousand of those who
    disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are people who do not
