Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu at SCICA

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu at SCICA His Excellency Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference addressed the 9th Session of the Standing Committee for Information & Cultural Affairs in Dakar, Republic Of Senegal  during the second week of October. '10.  The interesting parts are excerpted below, followed by my commentary, linked through superscripts. You can read the entire speech in context through this link.  

The rising intolerance of Islamic culture and traditions1 being perpetrated by marginal yet backed by powerful and motivated patrons and ultra right wing extremist political parties2 and their followers in parts of the western world is a matter of alarm to all Muslims .

Over the past five years, the OIC had to face daunting and formidable challenges that sought to demean, insult and make mockery of our beloved and revered Prophet Muhammad3 (PBUH), defile the Holy Quran and distort the principles of tolerance4 and compassion5 embodied in Islam.

The recent incidents of publication of a book containing the insulting cartoons of the noble Prophet (PBUH) by a Danish newspaper and the call to burn the Holy Quran by a pastor in Florida were disseminated by mass media. It fell on the General Secretariat and the Member States us to sensitize the conscience of the international community through use of the media of the dangerous implications6 of such actions.

Mr. President, Excellencies,

The OIC had to stand up to a well orchestrated and determined attack to undermine the overwhelming richness and greatness of Islamic culture and traditions and demonize Muslims as terrorists and extremists7.

The perpetrators and activists of Islamophobia are doing their best in using all available mechanisms to corrupt the mindset of the ordinary people, in particular the youths, in developing a distorted view8 of Islam and Muslims.

This attack on our poses a serious threat to global peace and security9. We are engaged with our Western counterparts to sensitize them of the mischief being caused by intolerance of Islam and Muslims and to encourage them to learn, understand and appreciate the values of tolerance and embracement of diversity10 that lies at the heart of Islamic culture.

This culture of intolerance against Muslims and Islam has to be countered by a more committed political will11 on the part of the OIC Member States and I would appeal to all that we realize that it is high time to rise to the occasion.

Our policy to deal with the issue should not be based on vengeance or revenge but to effectively prove the senseless absurdity and foolhardiness of those involved in taking the world towards the brink of instability and political and social disorder12.

The Observatory has undertaken an active role on countering attacks on our culture by issuing rejoinders and statements of condemnations. At the same time we are actively engaged with the political leadership and reputed international organizations and institutions of the west to underscore our concerns and to draw them to join us on a common platform to combat this dangerous phenomenon13.

  1. We can not and will not tolerate Islam's postulate of divine mandate to conquer & subjugate the entire world, killing, raping and pillaging in the process. 
    1. 2:216. Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know. 
    2. 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.
    3. Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 459:

      Narrated Ibn Muhairiz:

      I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Said Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Said said, "We went out with Allah's Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interrupt us, we said, 'How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah's Apostle who is present among us?" We asked (him) about it and he said, 'It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist." 

    4. Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 627:

      Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

      The Prophet sent a Sariya towards Najd and I was in it, and our share from the booty amounted to twelve camels each, and we were given an additional camel each. So we returned with thirteen camels each. 

  2. "Ultra right wing extremist political parties" paints with a broad brush, smearing those who object to Islamization of Western Civilization with the taint of Nazism. The slur is spewed without naming the parties, specifying their platforms, or offering any evidence.
  3. Muhammad has been dead since 638. He can not suffer any material harm from insults.  We are condemned for pointing out the facts that he married a six year old girl and consumated the marriage three years later.  We are condemned for pointing out the fact that he was a terrrorist. We found those facts redcorded in Islam's own canon of oral tradition, from his companions, not from his enemies. Is it possible that Allah selected such a man to be his final prophet?
    1. Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64:

      Narrated 'Aisha:

      that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

    2. Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:

      Narrated Abu Huraira:

      Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

  4. Tolerance? In Islam?? Where??? Allah will not tolerate any competitors!  [Emphasis added.]
    1. 3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.

  5. We can also see how compassionate Allah & Moe are.[Emphasis added.]
    1. 24:2. The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allâh, if you believe in Allâh and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allâh's Law).
  6. Once again the veiled threat is repeated. "dangerous implications". Muslims, stirred up by rabble rousing sermons, riot, destroying property and killing people. Instead of blaming the instigators & perpetrators, Muslims and their apologists blame Islam's critics. 
  7. Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam, Established by Allah's word and Moe's excellent example. [Emphasis added.]
    1. 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers). 
    2. 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes." 
    3. 8:57. If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.
    4. 8:60. Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.
    5. 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives. 
    6. 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh).
    7. 1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey. [Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331]

  8. The real 'distorted view' is the "great religion of peace" malarkey spewed by Presidtnts Clinton, Bush & Obama.
  9. The threat to global peace and security comes from Islam's demonic mandate to genocidal conquest. Allah demands "great slaughter" and killing and wounding "many of them". [Emphasis added.]
    1. 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
    2. 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allâh's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allâh, He will never let their deeds be lost,

  10. Tolerance & diversity! Are Jews allowed to enter Saudi Arabia?  How many churches are there in that kingdom? 
  11. That paragraph is a coded call for increased support for the annual resolutions "combatting defamation of religions" and the push for a binding protocol to insert the resolutions into ICERD.
  12. The implication is that, by criticizing Islam, we  bring the world to the brink of war. That is another incarnation of the veiled threat.
  13. What is the danger in exposing the reality of Islamic doctrine & practice to public view?  The only real danger comes from Muslims motivated to kill by those doctrines.
