Here is a first round-up on events at last week’s meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a partner organization of the UN. Pax Europa, the group for which I spoke in Berlin recently, was there, and was able to achieve great things. See the video above, in which the intrepid E.S.W. quotes Koran 4:34, the infamous wife-beating verse — much irking the Turks, who immediately denounced her intervention as “hate speech.” (You see, when a non-Muslim quotes the Koran, it’s “hate speech.”)
This was a very important meeting: for the first time Islam was discussed in a critical manner. This was not just another UN conference — and the OSCE concerns the US as well, since the US is a participating state.
