I am happy to see Flemming Rose, courageous publisher of the Danish Cartoons, speaking out against the malevolent objectives of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Regular Atlas readers are very aware of the dastardly aims of the OIC and how they have managed to infect and infiltrate the EU, the UN, and now the White House.
The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) member-states at the Durban II gathering in Geneva is pushing for "a new world order" that would expand and impose "nondemocratic and illiberal values on the West," says the Danish editor who in 2005 commissioned and published a series of cartoons, one of which depicted the prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban that led to worldwide Muslim rioting.
Flemming Rose, editor of Jyllands-Posten, Denmark's largest-circulation newspaper, is visiting Israel under the auspices of the Hebrew University's Shasha Center for Strategic Studies, headed by former Mossad director Efraim Halevy. He's here to lecture on how nations need to find the right balance between religious sensitivities and freedom of expression.
Rose says the OIC is trying to use Durban II to rewrite the rules of human rights and international law in a way that undermines the values of liberty enshrined in the Western canon - including the US Bill of Rights, the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
It's all part of an ongoing Muslim campaign that has been making significant strides, says Rose.
European liberal values, which dominated United Nations voting following the fall of the Soviet Union, are now in retreat. Muslim states attending Durban II are pushing the conference to say that criticizing Islam is a form of incitement.
"We're seeing an erosion of support in the West for freedom of expression in the guise of preventing incitement against Islam," says Rose.
