The OIC Sets Sights On Washington, D.C.

Excerpt from this June 25, 2008 essay entitled "George Orwell Meets the OIC by Robert Spencer in Human Events:
Now they’re setting their sights on the United States. “We have established an OIC Group in Washington D.C.,” Ihsanoglu [Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference] explained, “with the aim of playing a more active role in engaging American policy makers.” This will involve agitating for laws restricting free speech: “And in confronting the Danish cartoons and the Dutch film ‘Fitna,’” (which showed Muslims acting on violent passages in the Qur’an), Ihsanoglu continued, “we sent a clear message to the West regarding the red lines that should not be crossed.” Ihsanoglu says it’s already working: “As we speak, the official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues. They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.”
