The OIC is a Saudi-based and backed inter-governmentsl global Islamist organization. Here's what Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, its Secretary General, said recently in an interview with the Council on Foreign Relations posted on October 1st about their efforts to take on a broader role in the world and bring it under international rule:
...The OIC adopted a separate Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in 1990, a parallel document to the UN's 1948 Universal Human Rights Declaration. Why do Muslims need a separate declaration? Are there provisions of the 1948 declaration that Muslims think are not, indeed, universal?
I believe that universal human rights are compatible with Islam, and I have no problem on that. I had made a statement in Geneva in the Humans Rights Council that we look forward to integrating our system [the Cairo declaration] with the United Nations system, and now we have established a new human rights committee for us.
...In the United States, you are free to ridicule your leaders, you can burn the flag, you can desecrate any sacred object. But in other countries it is not the case.
You don't need to ridicule Jesus Christ or to burn the Bible. This is an insult. Is burning the Quran or the Bible a sign of freedom? If I come and punch you, is it a sign of freedom? This is not ideas. There is a limit of decency. There is a limit of freedom. Your freedom ends where my freedom starts. You need freedom and responsibility. Otherwise it will be jungle.
Who decides what is sacred and what's not sacred?
The international community decides. We are not are not encroaching on freedom of expression. We invite people to respect our values as they expect us to respect their values..."
