Criminalizing Free Speech
(With thanks to Will)
The following amounts to blasphemy laws, which will further Islamic supremacism:
The European Union has offered to host the next meeting of the so-called Istanbul Process, an aggressive effort by Muslim countries to make it an international crime to criticize Islam.
The announcement comes less than one month after the United States hosted its own Istanbul Process conference in Washington, DC.
The Istanbul Process – its explicit aim is to enshrine in international law a global ban on all critical scrutiny of Islam and/or Islamic Sharia law – is being spearheaded by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a bloc of 57 Muslim countries.
The OIC therefore scored a diplomatic coup when the Obama Administration agreed to host a three-day Istanbul Process conference in Washington, DC on December 12-14, 2011. In doing so, the United States gave the OIC the political legitimacy it has been seeking to globalize its initiative to ban criticism of Islam.
The OIC is especially angry over its inability to silence a growing number of democratically elected politicians in Europe who have voiced concerns over the refusal of Muslim immigrants to integrate into their host countries and the consequent establishment of parallel Islamic societies in many parts of Europe….
Much more HERE. Read it and weep.
Why is the West so determined to commit suicide?
and a cogent argument from Nan G at flopping aces shows how this will be implemented in the real world
Years ago, although after 9-11-01, an Aussie who converted out of Islam and became a Christian minister was charged criminally for ”hate speech” when he sermonized in his own church based on what the Koran and Hadith says about how Christians and Jews and other non-Muslims ought to be treated by Muslims.
During his original court case he took the stand and simply tried to use a Koran to accurately exactly quote various verses.
The lawyers for the prosecution (including Muslim lawyers) ordered the judge to prevent his touching the Koran much less reading and translating out of it.
The judge buckled to the pressure and the minister was not allowed to show the court and jury what he knew was in the Koran and Hadith.
He was found guilty and sent to prison.
He appealed and was completely exonerated of ”hate crimes,” of any sort.
under these proposed laws, we would ALL be in danger of imprisonment for simply using the Koran to prove what Islam includes.
Remember (or, if you are not aware, LEARN) that TRUTH is beside the point when a non-Muslim insults a Muslim.
EVEN if it is the truth, such an insult is a ”crime” under Sharia.
Under Sharia, that minister was ”guilty” of hate crime, even though he told the truth.

And then there’s this, from the Anti-Jihadist at Jihad Watch:
SEREMBAN, Jan 7 — PAS leader Datuk Dr Hasan Ali is planning a meeting with Christian leaders and “victims of apostasy” to prove the existence of a movement to convert Muslims, Sinar Harian reported today.
Claiming apostasy in Malaysia has become a serious concern, Dr Hasan said such a meeting was necessary to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
It’s only a ‘problem’ because Muslims and only Muslims make it so, but never mind.
“If they (apostates) agree to meet with these priests and religious leaders, a closed-door meeting will be held to prove the existence of a movement to convert Muslims.
“I want Christian leaders, religious scholars, muftis and intellectuals to hear from the mouths of these apostates themselves, the mouths of those who have embraced Christianity, as proof that they have been ensnared in the religion and these conversion attempts,” the daily quoted Dr Hasan as saying during the Himpunan Sejuta Umat (Gathering of a Million Faithful) meet at Negeri Sembilan’s closed-door stadium in Paroi here.
Dr Hasan (picture) however noted he was yet to obtain the permissions of the converts to hold the meeting.
“This is because [the former Muslims] are afraid to come forward as they fear the risk, threats from the community, their safety and they fear insults from others,” he explained.
And, it all stems from this; Bin Laden telling us the truth about Islam as dictated to Mohammed by Allah (Satan) himself:
“Our talks with the infidel West and our conflict with them ultimately revolve around one issue—one that demands our total support, with power and determination, with one voice—and it is: Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually? Yes. There are only three choices in Islam:  either willing submission [conversion]; or  payment of the jizya, through physical, though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam; or  the sword — for it is not right to let him [an infidel] live. The matter is summed up for every person alive: Either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die.”
