Yes, you read that right. Not “violence perpetrated by Muslims in the name of Islam.” No, Ban is ready to fight violence committed against Islam.
“Senegal: Ban Ki-Moon to Fight Violence Against Islam,” from Agence de Presse SÃ©nÃ©galaise (Dakar) (thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist):
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday promised in Dakar to “fight against those who want to justify violence against the religion.”
“We will fight against those who want to justify violence against the religion and promote understanding among the Alliance of Civilisations. We will strengthen cooperation between the OIC (Organisation of the Islamic Conference) and the United Nations in this area (religion),” Ban said.
He delivered his speech at the opening of the two-day 11th Islamic Ummah summit in Dakar, Thursday.
