The Organization of Islamic Cooperation is leading a global campaign to intimidate free states into criminalizing criticism of Islam. Considering that Awad’s Hamas-linked CAIR leads a relentless campaign of defamation against anyone and everyone who dares to stand up against the jihad and Islamic supremacism, that war against free speech doesn’t seem to trouble Awad. Nor, apparently, does appearing in the same forum with the genocide-minded Jew-hater Ahmadinejad. CAIR: A “moderate” “civil rights” organization, says the mainstream media.
In “Savage summit and its ‘Islamophobia’ problem” at WND, February 11, Pamela Geller unmasks Hamas-linked CAIR yet again:
The Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR,
took off its mask last week and joined the modern-day caliphate, the
57-government Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Cairo to discuss
the No. 1 issue to the Muslim world: “Islamophobia to be major issue discussed at meeting of heads of state.”
Islamophobia: in other words, the imposition of the Shariah. You
might think that the leaders from every Muslim country would convene to
discuss the brutality of Shariah: the persecution, oppression and
slaughter of non-Muslims in Muslim countries and the subjugation of
women. You would think that they might look inward — but you”d be wrong.
They want more of all that.
Hamas-CAIR Director Nihad Awad’s Facebook page carried this announcement: “CAIR Director to Tweet from OIC Summit in Cairo: Nihad
Awad, the national executive director of the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil
rights and advocacy organization, will tweet updates (@NihadAwad) from the two-day summit of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Cairo that begins on Wednesday.”
The announcement continued: “At the summit, Awad will meet with heads
of state and other foreign dignitaries and will offer input on the
growing phenomenon of Islamophobia in the United States and around the
world.” Said Awad: “It is critical to understand the damage Islamophobia
is causing not only to Muslims, but also to the fabric of Western
society, which is based on diversity and inclusion.” Awad also “noted
that growing Islamophobia damages relations with the Muslim world, fuels
anti-Americanism and is driven by a tiny minority of individual
hate-mongers and hate groups.”
In the eyes of OIC officials, no problem in the contemporary world is
more urgent than “Islamophobia,” which it calls “a crime against
humanity” that the U.N. and the EU must officially outlaw. Even
discussing why so much terrorism is carried out in the name of Islam is
to be forbidden. The OIC insists, too, that international bodies ban
“defamation of religion,” by which it means criticism of anything
Islamic. Defamation of Judaism, Christianity, Bahai, Hinduism and even
heterodox Muslim sects such as the Ahmadiyya is common within the
borders of many OIC countries, a fact the OIC refuses to acknowledge.
While there, Awad can rub elbows with Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Ahmadinejad, said Iran’s PressTV “is leading the Iranian delegation to
the Cairo summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which
begins on February 6.”
