If you don’t know by now that action against the “culture of hatred among nations” means restrictions on free speech about Islam, including investigations of the motives and goals of the jihad terrorists, you haven’t been paying attention. Pakistan recently called for EU action against free speech, and this conference, which was portrayed in the witless Western press as a genuine call for interreligious dialogue, is talking about going to the UN and “taking action at the media level to counter distorting campaigns and confront calls for confrontations among civilizations.”
In other words, if you say Muslims are waging jihad warfare against non-Muslims, they will try to get you vilified, if not prosecuted, for “hate speech” — for daring to suggest that there is a “confrontation among civilizations.”
