According to Bat Ye'or, "the OIC, the Organization of the Islamic
Conference, which is a group that brings together 57 Muslim countries, has
decided to bring into the international forefront and into the Western world,
this rule of Dhimmitude that imposed the respect of Islam by non-Muslims. This is
what we see now, and they have decided too, that the Muslims who are integrated
in non-Muslim countries are a part of the universal Ummah, and that their
rights to be respected must be applied.
[....] Unfortunately what I see now, organized in the OIC, is exactly the contrary. The OIC brings all the Muslim countries, the 57 Muslim countries, together, and I wouldn’t say the same rule of course, the same organization, the same politics, its aim at creating a block, a Muslim block, which is, it plans to unify it by rooting it in the Koran and Sharia and the Sunna. So we are going to see a stronger, even a stronger Islamic block, more fundamentalist."
