An influential bloc of 57 Muslim countries demands that the West make it an international crime to criticize Islam. Then stop making it such an easy target.
In its 94-page document on “Islamophobia,” the Saudi-based Organization of Islamic Cooperation lists as potential felonies: expressing “ideas that Muslims are inclined to violence” and “Islam is an inherently expansionist religion.”
Under those standards, however, the OIC would have to indict itself. Its charter espouses violent jihad and the global implementation of Shariah law.
The OIC provides intellectual justification for terrorism, describing attacks on “occupiers and colonialists” as “legitimate jihad.” OIC refuses to define “individual destructive acts” against perceived foes as terrorism.
The international Muslim body also espouses Islamic supremacism.
