Delegate Tells UN Confab On Religious Sensitivities That There Is ‘No Such Thing As Islamic Terrorism’

In the movie “The Usual Suspects”, Kevin Spacey’s character “Roger Kint” surmised that “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” Now another trick up his sleeve seeks to convince the world that Islamic terrorism isn’t real, either. Unfortunately, it appears that the politically correct West somehow believes that the Father of Lies may be telling the truth …

But it has nothing to do with Isam

Has nothing to do with Islam

By Casey Larsen, UN Watch – “GENEVA – Nations attacked the West for wrongly associating Islam with terrorism at a June 19-21 international conference in Geneva organized by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, part of the U.S.-Turkish led ‘Istanbul Process,’ an intended Western-Islamic framework for détente created by a 2011 UN Human Rights Council resolution to ‘combat intolerance, discrimination and incitement to hatred and/or violence on the basis of religion or belief.’ …

[A] topic of concern was the image globally projected of Islam and its frequent association with violence. Muslim panelists and member-state representatives insisted on the inherently peaceful character of their personal faith and state religion.

Slimane Chikh, Ambassador of the OIC’s UN mission in Geneva, stressed that Islam is a religion that accepts dissent.

In a debate on the implementation of Paragraph 5 (e) of Resolution 16/18, Ambassador Ömür Orhun, the Permanent Representative of Turkey to the OSCE, regretted use of the term ‘Islamic terrorism’ by the Western media following terrorist attacks like the 2005 London bombings. ‘There is no such thing as Islamic terrorism,’ he said.

US Ambassador Kozak responded that terrorists are often labeled as such in Western countries precisely because this is what they term themselves. Most ‘Islamic terrorists’ are self-proclaimed as such…

Regrettably, the conference turned a blind eye to terrorism committed by Islamist extremists even as it met. On June 19th, the conference’s opening day, The Times reported that 16 students had been shot dead in Nigeria by suspected Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram, whose name roughly translates as ‘Western education is sin.’ …

… He also expressed concern that the conference’s overall narrative was unhelpfully framed in terms of ‘the West versus the rest,’ with prime focus on the West’s failure to enact prohibitions on free speech; and this despite the fact that the countries where the most religious violence takes place tend to be those that have blasphemy laws in place.

Pakistan reacted indignantly, dismissing the Muslims in America that had been cited by the US delegation as having praised American tolerance as merely ‘rented Muslims’ – a term that Ambassador Kozak rejected.Read more.

Flashback: UK: PM Cameron Regurgitates PC Drivel After Jihadist Beheading, ‘There Is Nothing In Islam That Justifies This Truly Dreadful Act’ – “David Cameron today condemned the Woolwich murder as a ‘betrayal of Islam’ as he insisted Britain would stand resolute against terror attacks… the Prime Minister said: ‘This was not just an attack on Britain – and on our British way of life. It was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country. ‘There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.” Read more.

Flashback: French President Nicolas Sarkozy: The Muslim Faith Has Nothing To Do With Islamic Terrorism – “France has shown its indignation and grit but has not allowed anger to take over. The Muslim faith has nothing to do with the insane acts of this man. Before targeting Jewish children, he targeted other Muslims. We must be implacable in defending our values. We will not allow this ideology to affect us. From now on, any person who habitually consults websites that advocate terrorism or that call for hatred and violence will be punished by the law. France will not tolerate forced recruitment or ideological indoctrination on its soil.” Read more.

Flashback: US President Barack Obama Pulls Islam From All Terror Trainings – “Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole confirmed on Wednesday that the Obama administration was pulling back all training materials used for the law enforcement and national security communities, in order to eliminate all references to Islam that some Muslim groups have claimed are offensive. ‘I recently directed all components of the Department of Justice to re-evaluate their training efforts in a range of areas, from community outreach to national security,’ Cole told a panel at the George Washington University law school.” Read more.
