- The OIC Secretary General appears to be laying the diplomatic groundwork to persuade non-elected bureaucrats at EU headquarters to enact hate-speech legislation that would limit by fiat what 500-million European citizens -- including democratically elected politicians -- can and cannot say about Islam
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an influential bloc of 57 Muslim countries, has officially inaugurated a Permanent Observer Mission to the European Union (EU). The primary objective of the OIC, headquartered in Saudi Arabia and funded by Islamic countries around the world, has long been to pressure Europe and the United States into passing laws that would ban "negative stereotyping of Islam."

Chickens have wings; terrorist organizations have partners in crime
The United States, Canada, Israel, the Netherlands, and Bahrain designate Hezb'allah a terrorist organization; Britain and Australia outlaw only Hezb'allah's "terrorist wing" but permit its "political wing" to organize and raise money (only for political activity, of course).
A motion by Britain will put the British/Australian formula on the agenda of the European Union, perhaps as early as June. In one sense, it is a step forward for the EU, which currently looks upon Hezb'allah's activities as unremarkable. In another sense, however, it is absurd.

Brussels as the headquarters of the European Union is the nominal "capital of Europe.” One would expect the city to be the center of enlightenment—the exemplification of political and social tolerance and freedom of speech, assembly and religion, not to mention an advocate of human rights
Disappointingly, recent events have shown that Brussels has increasingly become a place of lies, deliberate disinformation, political manipulation, anti-Semitism and attacks on Israel. Recent developments, particularly Islamist political as well as physical aggressiveness, justify this sad conclusion.
