STATE DEPARTMENT COVER-UP of U.S. Consul General’s participation in an Islamic conference on the banning of ‘Defamation of Islam’ in America

When word leaked out via a press release from the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) that the U.S. Consul General in Jeddah, Anne Casper, would be attending the OIC’s meeting on the banning of free speech, that tidbit was quickly scrubbed from the OIC website.

ORIGINAL POST: After the disaster of trying to blame an obscure YouTube video for the attack on the CIA operation in Benghazi and Obama’s prophecy at the UN that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” Hillary Clinton’s State Department appears to be taking another run at the First Amendment free speech rights of American citizens.

A notice was posted yesterday on the website of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) about a symposium to be held today at the OIC headquarters in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on “Defamation Acts Against Islam.” And one top U.S. State Department official will be in attendance:

The headquarters of the General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will host a symposium on “Defamation Acts against Islam: conflict dimensions and perspectives of co-existence between Islam and the West” on Monday 19/11/2012.

The Session will be attended by Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the OIC Secretary General. It will be chaired by Ambassador Ahmad Taib , Director General of the Branch of the Saudi Foreign Ministry, Makkah Al-Mukarrammah region. It will also be attended by Sergey Kuznetsov, Consul General of the Russian Federation and Anne Casper, US Consul General in Jeddah.

NEW POST: With a few hours that mention has been scrubbed. The press release linked to earlier now reads:

“The Session will be attended by Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the OIC Secretary General and members of the Jeddah diplomatic community and other invited guests.”

No more mention of Anne Casper attending today’s OIC session on banning “defamation of Islam.” Let the cover-up begin!

The OIC has made no secret of its intentions to use the UN and international law to criminalize what they consider to be “defamation of Islam.” For example, OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu gave a speech last Friday on “An OIC Approach for Combating Discrimination and Intolerance against Muslims,” in which he gave a road map of how they plan to do it:

OIC’s position has all along been entrenched in international legal instruments and we need to build on this tradition. We must emphasize that there is no hierarchy of human rights whereby a single right can trump others. Freedom of opinion and expression is among the fundamental rights.It does not include a licence to hate mongering. Freedom of expression does not mean the right to vilify. Our position must also be rooted in history and culture. Having indicated our seriousness at building consensus, we must seek to be reciprocated in the same spirit. We need to seek multi-stakeholder support for an international discourse seeking an intercultural solution – A solution that acknowledges that denigration of symbols and personalities sacred in Islam must be viewed as a matter of identity. It inflicts the psyche of Muslim all over the world. It is in that context that we seek an end to the systematic pattern and increasing frequency of events that contribute towards stereotyping, stigmatization and alienation of Muslims. Such events constitute an affront to human dignity violating the whole range of human rights of victims.

Coinciding with that “brainstorming” session during the OIC’s annual meeting of foreign ministers, the OIC released its Fifth Annual Report on Islamophobia, which is primarily directed at acts of free speech committed in the United States.

Hillary Clinton’s complicity with the OIC towards these ends is no surprise either, since she met twice with the OIC last year as part of the “Istanbul Process,” including her vow to use “old fashioned techniques of peer-pressure and shaming” to target “Islamophobia.”

Those meetings played out last December when the State Department backed the OIC-drafted UN Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18. Check out the membership of the UN Human Rights Council. 

No word on when Hillary Clinton intends to press the OIC about the pandemic racism and “kafirphobia” of the Muslim world.

  1. Why is that OIC man touching a woman whom he is not married to or related to , Is he not going against Islamic sharia law and the quran , in his beliefs of his religion .,And he is trying to tell us that we are not to defmanate their religion ,When he is doing the same thing.

  2. Could this be a way so BO and HAJI HILLARY look good to the people back home. Getting the Americans out of harm’s way? Then let Israel really take it to the Arabs again. After all BO can’t have any more Americans on his dead list for public consumption. Watch and see if BO tries to take credit for being such a good guy. This Ass is not above this.

  3. The Trinity of EVIL is on the move. BO, HAJI HILLARY and PANETTA. This meeting with the Islamic OIC’s is not the big problem what is the real problem is the push to relieve US the USA of the 2nd Amendment and then you can really worry about the loss of the First Amendment the right to speak and the right to live your life under Judeao/Christianity. This push comes via the UN and the small arms treaty. Brought to fruition by HAJI HILLARY. This women, is the bane of our society.
    The first inkling that she wants guns and ammo banned here in the USA is a breach of her oath to the SOS position to protect this nation from all enemies foreign and domestic. Thus she is committing TREASON and SEDITION and because it is a time of WAR she is subject to the death penalty of being a TRAITOR.
    Remember the 2nd Amendment was place on the Bill of Rights to protect the people from a Tyrannical Government. It is time to let the Government know we are preparing for the day they step over the line.

  4. Screw this. You can’t say anything against Islam, but muslims can preach that Jesus was a muslim and not the Son of God. Sheite to that. They can’t have it both ways, and I’ll never conform to their bullcrap. I will take to the streets. They ain’t seen nothing yet.

  5. Stupid, truly stupid. Who blames the speaker for their own murder? Oh yeah, Islam does. Okay, but they can’t control our thoughts or our capacity to gather together in secret and to plan, with our free expression, their demise (-:

  6. well there was a lot of candle watt power burned last nite ! two hunderd and fifty thousand and some Gun owners , American Tea Paryers , Patriots of all colors and both sexes say no there will be no move that will destroy our bill of rights and should some one on American soil try we will move to halt the actor and action . today 250 tommrow 10 times 250 we wil respond ! Beware of the ides of march ! The second Army to save the Republic

    • Saxon, he wouldn’t have to add anything. He just circumvents the constitution as he has done before, i.e. amnesty for illegal. Wait’ll you see him get around the second amendment when he signs the UN small arms treaty, as he is itching to do.

      • I have a framed proclaimation on the very wall I look up to daily as I sit here spewing my venmon, and it goes like this, “the day we lose the 2nd Amendment IS THE DAY the 2ND revolution begins” In my book what you are saying B, is go ahead, “make my day”. I know we both cannot argue with the fact, there is a culling coming, desperately needed and from all the words coming at me on a daily basis, we are headed right towards it. Every man gotta die someday, might as well make it a worthy notion, live and fight on your feet or die on your knee’s, I know of which direction I go. I just cling to the hope there are many more of my mind, but I have my doubts these days.

        Going GALT

  7. in casse anyone wants to know the electoral college is DEC 17 and if 17 states refuse to participate the 12th amendment says the selection of president goes to the HOUSE. the must be a 2/3 majority for this to happen. it’s a long shot but we must convince the states not to participate with such a divided country this is the only way to save us

  8. Ain’t happening…NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WILL THAT AFRICAN BASTARD STIFLE WHAT GOOD AMERICANS DIED FOR.
    If it does happen, it will spark the next American revolution…..guaranteed.

  9. I have feared this for a long time and most Americans are unaware of it. I got in an argument with a progressive lib at work and no matter how much I tried to explain the threat by the OIC to our free speech all he could hear is that I hate all Muslims. I have Muslim friends in Turkiye and I have no hate towards peaceful Muslims, only political Islam.I better get some articles out before it becomes a hate crime to criticize Islam. I wonder if they will come after me for my past articles about Islam? I still plan to publish my fictional account about the fall of Constantinople 1453 and in one part of the story Emperor Constantine Palaeolgus calls Muhammad a false prophet. In this new world order that would be a hate crime.

  10. That little African boy is playing with matches and may get burned. He does have a talent for picking folks who don’t mind having strings attached to their hands, feet, heads and shoulders to act as puppets when he pulls the strings. It was suprising that Hillary worked out well in that sense. So did Petraeus to an extent. Remember when the puppet master had the puppet general tell Americans that Jones burning the Koran will make it more dangerous for our troops because the enemy will get angry. But Petraeus threw a small wrench into the works by stating that nobody at CIA ordered that “stand down” order that led to the murder of the ambassador and the three enlisted men. Now POTUS feels a degree of safety traveling far away from the fan that got hit by the shit. If the Republicans in Congress do a more effective job than they did in backing Mitt, then we might get the s.o.b. impeached but failing that, we can start buying candles for the funeral of the once great America.

  11. when the first christian church or school opens in mecca give me a call if they silence my right to free speech RULE 303 will start
    in the US rule 30.06 or 308 is the same rule applied by the same
    people freedom loving ISRAEL supporting crusaders.Again thanks to the military for giving us this freedom.The unpayable debt

  12. Kafir-HATRED is taught in all Saudi schools…Hillary should mention that.

    Supremacists don’t say ‘sorry’ when they’re caught hurting minorities. Mozzies want the unique right of never hearing criticism of ‘perfect’ Islam…so they won’t have to murder the critics…as Mohammed did! Mohammed is ‘perfect’, so murdering kafirs is ‘perfect’.

    Islam CRUSHES women and ‘others’. Moz double ethics are now out in the open.

    Islam is starting to crack and will eventually crumble. The West is waking up to the hot, steaming piles of TAQIYYA.

    • Here I will post an email sent out by Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation.

      We have one last, final chance to save America. We have one last, final chance to stop Barack Obama. One final chance.

      What is this final chance? Will the Republicans step up to the plate and do what is necessary?
      Barack Obama has not yet been re-elected president.

      Yes, the election is over – but remember, a presidential election in America is not by popular vote. We vote for the candidate, but what we are really doing is voting for the electors who will meet on the Monday after the second Wednesday in December.That is when the actual re-election of the president occurs.

      Is there a way to stop this? Yes, there is. And the best part – this is totally constitutional. The 12th Amendment of the Constitution as well as Article II of the Constitution govern the Electoral College. According to the 12th Amendment, for the Electoral College to be able to select the president, it must have a quorum of two-thirds of the states voting. If enough states refuse to participate, the Electoral College will not have a quorum. If the Electoral College does not have a quorum or otherwise cannot vote or decide, then the responsibility for selecting the president and vice president devolves to the Congress.

      The House of Representatives selects the president and the Senate selects the vice president.
      Since the Republicans hold a majority in the House, presumably they would vote for Mitt Romney, and the Democrats in the Senate would vote for Joe Biden for vice president.
      Can this work? Sure it can.
      Democrats have actually set this precedent of refusing to participate to deny Republicans a quorum. They did this in Wisconsin and in Texas. Why can’t we do this with the Electoral College?
      Mitt Romney was a terrible candidate, and he will not be a great president. But he will be infinitely better than Barack Obama.

      So how do we do this?

      Mitt Romney carried 24 states. We need to have conservative activists from all over the nation contact the electors, the Republican Party and the secretary of state in all of these states and tell them not to participate in the Electoral College when it meets on Dec. 17.
      If we can get 17 of those states (just over one-third) to refuse to participate, the Electoral College will have no quorum. Then, as the Constitution directs, the election goes to the House of Representatives.

      That is how we can still pull this election out and make Mitt Romney president in January.
      We need this concept shared with every tea party, liberty and patriotic group throughout the country. We have time to act, but we must pressure Republicans to do the right thing.

      It does not matter who gets credit for this. The credit is not important. Using our last chance to defeat Barack Obama is important.
      Far too often the Republican Party seems more interested in losing gracefully than winning and governing.

      This is our last chance. We the people must contact the electors, party officials and secretaries of state from every red state and insist that they refuse to participate in the Electoral College.

      We can still save America and use the Constitution to do it. But this truly is our last chance
      —————————————————————————————–
      Does anybody know Who these Electoral College Members are ? or how to contact them ? I would fire off a thousand letters if I knew who to send them to…..
      We Need Help, and VERY SOON !

  13. I really don’t think that freedom of speech will be denied Americans! There are way too many of us that will not stand by and let it happen. The good will outweigh the bad in the end. I for one will not go quietly into the night!!!

    I am an American Infidel!

    • Tilt, have we been able to stop the NDAA, which allows him to detain any American citizen for any length of time without being charged with a crime? http://www.aclu.org/blog/tag/ndaa

      Have we been able to stop him from giving the UN control of the seas around America via the Law of the Seas? http://www.un.org/Depts/los/convention_agreements/texts/unclos/unclos_e.pdf

      Have we been able to stop him from banning drilling in the Gulf? From shutting down Coal Mines? From refusing the Keystone Pipeline from Canada?

      • BNI I was wondering. Don’t you at times feel like just throwing in the towel and shutting everything down for good? It is so sick that Americans have to fight so hard to get it’s leaders to do what is right and stand up for our country. These people are suppose to protect this great country but they are destroying it and they are just letting the muslim scum take over. All they do is lie, lie and then lie some more. Peter King is going, Allen West is out, Michele Bachmann, we haven’t heard from her lately and the rest of the idiots are bringing more muslims into our government and they do not even like it because they want sharia law. The last straw is that the people elected this loser obama for another four years and he is now on vacation. I don’t understand how people could elect this idiot again? Every time there is something in the news it is usually about muslims but no one ever says it was about them.
        I had a guy tell me tonight that everything bad that is going on in the world today, including WW2 was or is caused by Israel, it was all I could do to keep from hitting this jerk.
        I don’t think islam is starting to crack, even if it destroys islam and all its’ people these idiots will blow themselves up and disappear forever. You can’t reason with these people, they are hellbent on destroying israel and everyone else who is not muslim even if it destroys islam. But what is sad is that clinton, obama and his paramours turn a blind eye and say that we have to be politically correct and not make them mad, they send our money to terrorists, support them and bow to them. The hell with them I say, piss them off, make them mad so people can see what they really are like. What is it going to take to get people to fight for their rights and keep this country free?
        I don’t know about you but I am about ready to call it quits and just set back and see what happens. It seem that only a few care anyway, the majority want Santa obama to provide for them. Why do you do it? Do you think it will help? Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? How do you put up with this crap? Why do we have to keep fighting when we have a government that is suppose to fight for us but they are our enemy? Everyday it is a new battle for something. Our government is siding with those that want to destroy America. Maybe you see or know something that I don’t?
        Peace to all non-muislims who want our government to do its job and fight for us for once.
