'Islamophobia' a threat to world security, say Muslim states [Barf Alert]
Breitbart ^ | 3/12/08 | n/a

Posted on 03/12/2008 3:09:44 PM PDT by kiriath_jearim

The world's Muslim countries warned Wednesday that an "alarming" rise in anti-Islamic insults and attacks in the West has become a threat to international security.

The Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) called on Europe and America to take stronger measures against 'Islamophobia' in a report prepared for a summit of the group's 57 members in Dakar on Thursday and Friday.

The report by a special OIC monitoring group said the organisation was struggling to get the West to understand that Islamophobia "has dangerous implications on global peace and security" and to convince western powers to do more.

Islamic leaders have long warned that perceptions linking Muslims to terrorism, especially since the September 11, 2001 Al-Qaeda attacks on the United States, would make Muslims more radical.

The West must understand that "the war against terror cannot be successful without the support of Muslim countries," said the report.

OIC leaders have expressed renewed concern following events such as the publication in Denmark of cartoons lampooning the Prophet Mohammed and a plan by the Dutch far-right MP Geert Wilders to release a film calling the Koran "fascist".

The OIC said Islam had faced constant attacks since it was created "but in recent years the phenomenon has assumed alarming proportions and has become a major cause of concern for the Muslim world."

The monitoring group called on Europe and North America to do more, through laws and social action, to protect Muslims from threats and discrimination and prevent insults against Islam's religious symbols.

"Many Muslim countries are themselves victims of terror and active partners of the international community in combating terror and extremism."

The report added that Muslims in many parts of the world, in the West in particular, are being stereotyped, profiled and subjected to various forms of discriminatory treatment.

"The most sacred symbols of Islam, in particular the sacred image of of the Prophet Mohammed is being defiled and denigrated in the most insulting, offensive and contemptuous manner to incite hatred and unrest in society."

In a veiled reference to the Danish cartoons and Wilders' film, the OIC said: "The Islamophobes remain free to carry on their assaults due to the absence of legal measures necessary against the misusing or abusing (of) the right to freedom of expression."

It called on OIC member states to "step up their counter-measures by keeping the pressure on the international community at multilateral and bilateral forums."

The OIC said the Muslim world must launch a campaign to show that it is a "moderate, peaceful and tolerant" religion, closely monitor and the raise the alert over anti-Islamic incidents and organise more inter-faith initiatives.

"Victims of Islamophobia must be encouraged and given necessary help to file complaints," said the report.

“Victims of Islamophobia must be encouraged and given necessary help to file complaints,” said the report.

Filing complaints would be a damn sight better than their current policy of intimidation, burning, killing, and suicide bombing. Yeah, go for it!

What did you say? Can't hear anything over Iammadjohn's and Chavez's daily anti- America, anti-Israel rants.

That’s not a concept within Islam at all.

I have come to miss the Soviet Union for one reason. They really knew how to keep their foot on the throats of the Moslems. Problem with a Moslem? Bullet to the head. Next?

Same with the Chinese Commies. They know what to do. Idiots in democracies always fold for the Muslims in an orgy of self abasement and "understanding"

If you haven’t watched this video on youtube, it’s worth your time.

It’s called “Appeasing Islam”, is made by a European and hits the nail on the head!

Let them file complaints because they will lose on the basis of free speech. The Islamic lobby group filed a complaint against a magazine for quoting from Mark Steyn’s book on the demographics of the Islamic movement through the western world. They have to file these suits in another country because they won’t make it to court in the US.

I’d say Muslim anti-semitism is a far greater threat based upon the facts!

Gee, I wonder if they gave the same rights to the victims of the Jihadists...

I believe a”phobia” denotes some type of fear. I’m not islamaphobic—I simply detest everything islam stands for.

And would not be necessary except for their support of the terrorists.

“has become a threat to international security” which translates to “has become a threat to world domination by murdering islamic psychopaths”

Islamophobia = the fear of your wife or child getting blown up in an airplane or getting your head cut off in front of a camera by a Muslim.

Yep, that would be me.

Seems to me that, if Islam wasn’t an element of nearly EVERY act of international terrorism in the past 20 years or so, the whole Islamophobia thing would never have become an issue. Just sayin...

Only a very insecure religion would whiningly wax indignant about insults, real or perceived. But, that’s just what islam is: a whining, insecure religion (and its questionable whether it’s really a religion).

There is no such thing as “Islamophobia”.

A phobia is an “irrational fear”

There is nothing irrational of being fearful of a group, that has twice tried to invade Europe by force but were repelled in bloody battles, and now is invading by stealth and has stated it’s intent to kill us if we don’t embrace their ideology and who’s numbers, by their own surveys, are around 91 million worldwide that support radical Islam.

When you know there are 91 million people that would happily slit your throat and have a “revered book” that supports their actions, and exhorts them to hide amongst us until they can kill us, you have every right to be suspicious.

Nothing irrational about that.

BUT OF COURSE ISLAMO TERRORISM AND ISLAMO SUBVERSION IN OUR CITIES IS NOT A THREAT TO GLOBAL PEACE AND SECURITY
Islamic leaders have long warned that perceptions linking Muslims to terrorism, especially since the September 11, 2001 Al-Qaeda attacks on the United States, would make Muslims more radical.
PERCEPTIONS LINKING MUSLIM TO TERRORISM???????
HOW ABOUT FACTS LINKING THEM TO TERRORISM, HOW ABOUT WEEKLY IF NOT DAILY ATTACKS AND MURDERS COMMITTED AGAINST CIVILIZATION BY THE ISLAMO TERRORIST.
THES EPOPEL WOULD BE SILLY IF THEY REALLY WERE NOT TRYING TO MURDER US ALL...........
