The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) says jump, and BO says, how high, master? Obama had the OIC head, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, at the White House, where he “urged the U.S. to quickly appoint an envoy to the Islamic bloc” — which prompted BHO to create “a new office that is responsible for outreach with Muslims around the world”.
In keeping with instituting Obama’s US MUSLIM ENGAGEMENT, a charter of dhimmitude, we are to be conditioned to respect Muslim immigrants and accept their culture. President Hussein is more than comfortable with this deal with the devil as he seeks to institute an Islamo-Christian ethic, destroying the very foundation of this great country. Never mind that Muslims go after and annihilate the Christians in every country they finally dominate. This is of no import.
America only has to look to Europe to see the devastating consequences of what is proposed in the implementation of the US Muslim Engagement.
Since taking office Obama has focused on three things – the transformation of our capitalistic economy to a form of soft socialism (Obamacare), the abdication of American sovereignty to a trans-nationalism (one world-er) and the advancement of the worldwide domination of Islam, the ultimate goal of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). There is conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact – the global jihad is conspiracy fact. And the OIC is behind it.
Obama invited the “secretary general” to the White House on the Islamic leg of his apology tour of Europe. Obama refused Sarkozy’s offer to visit Normandy, choosing instead to tour the mosques of Turkey and attend the second forum of the OIC arm, the “alliance of civilizations” (AoC).
The Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, reconnoitered with Obama during the official reception of the AoC given by the Turkish Prime Minister, Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (who famously said that “there is no moderate Islam” just days before Barack Hussein’s visit). Obama reiterated to the Secretary General the willingness and readiness of the US Administration to explore areas of cooperation with the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
New U.S. Special Representative Announced for Muslim Outreach
(CNSNews.com) – Buoyed by the presence in the White House of a president who wants to prioritize relations with the world’s Muslims, the head of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) visited both Washington and Brussels this week, and urged the U.S. to quickly appoint an envoy to the Islamic bloc.
OIC secretary-general Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu was in Washington on Tuesday when the State Department, in an internal memo, announced that it has selected a “special representative to Muslim communities.”
The department chose not to announce the move publicly, but State Department spokesman Ian Kelly on Thursday acknowledged that Farah Pandith has been chosen for the position. Pandith, a Muslim of Kashmiri origin, served as “senior advisor for Muslim engagement to the assistant secretary for European and Eurasian affairs” in the Bush administration.
hsanoglu told the Turkish Anadolu state news agency this week that he had told Clinton that the U.S. should immediately appoint a special envoy for its relations with the Islamic world.
The two were scheduled to have met, but the event was cancelled because of Clinton’s recent elbow fracture and surgery.
Instead they held a “comprehensive” telephone conversation and “exchanged views as to the ways and means of furthering the engagement between the OIC and the U.S. in the coming period,” the OIC said in a statement.
From Washington, Ihsanoglu went to Brussels where he announced plans to open a representative office to the European Union, with a key function of combating “Islamophobia.”
The OIC, a 57-member bloc of Muslim majority states that wields increasing clout at the United Nations, already has permanent missions in the U.N. cities of New York and Geneva, and “OIC groups” in Washington, Vienna and Paris.
Headquartered in the Saudi city of Jeddah, the OIC has existed for 40 years, but in recent times has become much more visible in the West, largely as a result of its controversial
campaign against the “defamation” of Islam.
It has steered more than a dozen resolutions on the subject through the U.N. Opponents of the drive, including religious freedom and free speech advocates, see it as an attempt to shield Islam and Islamic practices from criticism.
Ihsanoglu, a Turk, told the Turkish newspaper Today’s Zaman that “fighting anti-Islam propaganda” will be among the main aims of the office in Brussels.
The paper noted that major incidents considered to be “Islamophobic” had occurred in Europe, citing the furor over Danish newspaper cartoons satirizing Mohammed.
While in Brussels, Ihsanoglu met the E.U.’s external relations commissioner, Benita Ferrero-Waldner, and said they discussed Obama’s speech in Cairo. Ihsanoglu had been in the audience when the president spoke.
“Obama’s speech was historic and did not resemble any other speeches in the past,” he told the Anadolu agency on Wednesday. “There has never been a speech delivered to the Muslims that was so constructive and positive as Obama’s speech.”
‘The most democratic religion’
While in the U.S. this week, Ihsanoglu met with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, a member of a “leadership group” driving the U.S.-Muslim Engagement Project and a strong backer of Obama’s outreach.
In April, Albright was quoted by the Voice of America as telling a meeting of OIC ambassadors that she had no doubt Islamic countries could be democracies.
“Actually, in my study of religions, in many ways Islam is maybe the most democratic religion because there is nobody between you and God. So I do not think that is something that can be used as reason not to have Muslim democracies.”
Madeline Albright’s impossibly stupid remark reflects an illogical, frightening dhimmitude at the “leadership level”. How does one look at an Islamic country and make a statement like that?
Where’s Muslim outreach to the West — where is the self criticism? It’s all their way or the highway.
Flemming Rose, courageous publisher of the Danish Cartoons, spoke out against the malevolent objectives of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Regular Atlas readers are very aware of the dastardly aims of the OIC and how they have managed to infect and infiltrate the EU, the UN, and now the White House.
The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) member-states at the Durban II gathering in Geneva is pushing for “a new world order” that would expand and impose “nondemocratic and illiberal values on the West,” says the Danish editor who in 2005 commissioned and published a series of cartoons, one of which depicted the prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban that led to worldwide Muslim rioting.
Flemming Rose, editor of Jyllands-Posten, Denmark’s largest-circulation newspaper, is visiting Israel under the auspices of the Hebrew University’s Shasha Center for Strategic Studies, headed by former Mossad director Efraim Halevy. He’s here to lecture on how nations need to find the right balance between religious sensitivities and freedom of expression.
Rose says the OIC is trying to use Durban II to rewrite the rules of human rights and international law in a way that undermines the values of liberty enshrined in the Western canon – including the US Bill of Rights, the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
It’s all part of an ongoing Muslim campaign that has been making significant strides, says Rose.
Bat Yeor wrote of the OIC:
The OIC is one of the largest intergovernmental organizations in the world. It encompasses 56 Muslim states plus the Palestinian Authority. Spread over four continents, it claims to speak in the name of the ummah (the universal Muslim community), which numbers about 1.3 billion. The OIC’s mission is to unite all Muslims worldwide by rooting them in the Koran and the Sunnah — the core of traditional Islamic civilization and values. It aims at strengthening solidarity and cooperation among all its members, in order to protect the interests of Muslims everywhere and to galvanize the ummah into a unified body.
The OIC is a unique organization — one that has no equivalent in the world. It unites the religious, economic, military, and political strength of 56 states. By contrast, the European Union represents half as many states and is a secular body only, and the Vatican — which speaks for the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics — is devoid of any political power. Many Muslims in the West resist the OIC’s tutelage and oppose its efforts to supplant Western law with sharia. But the OIC’s resources are formidable.
The OIC regularly reiterates its commitments to protecting the political, historical, religious, and human rights of Muslims in non-OIC states, especially Muslims who form the majority in specific regions of non-Muslim countries — such as the southern Philippines, southern Thailand, and western Thrace in Greece — as well as Muslims in places like the Balkans, the Caucasus, Myanmar, India, and China. The OIC supports Hamas and the Palestinians in their struggle to destroy Israel, as well as the Muslim fight for “legitimate self-determination” in “Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir.” It has condemned the “continual Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan,” and it expresses its full solidarity with “the just cause of the Muslim Turkish people of Cyprus” and with Sudanese President Omar Hassan Al-Bashir, whom many hold responsible for encouraging the massacres in Darfur. The seat of the OIC is in Jeddah, but the organization regards that location as temporary: Its headquarters will be transferred to al-Kods (Islamized Jerusalem) when that city has been “liberated” from Israeli control.
In its efforts to defend the “true image” of Islam and combat its defamation, the organization has requested the UN and the Western countries to punish “Islamophobia” and blasphemy. Among the manifestations of Islamophobia, in the OIC’s view, are European opposition to illegal immigration, anti-terrorist measures, criticism of multiculturalism, and indeed any efforts to defend Western cultural and national identities. The OIC has massive funding from oil sources, which it lavishly spends on the Western media and academia and in countless “dialogues.” It influences Western policy, laws, and even textbooks through pressures brought by Muslim immigrants and by the Western nations’ own leftist parties. Hence, we have seen Kristallnacht-like incitements of hate and murder against European Jews and Israel conducted with impunity in the cities of Europe — where respect for human rights is supposed to be one of the highest values.
