The International Islamic News Agency (never heard of it before; get used to it a la "Gallup Abu Dhabi") reported on August 1, which, as the dateline notes, is also Ramadan 1 (or vice versa):

JEDDAH, Ramadan 1/Aug 1 (IINA)-During the next few months, Washington plans to host a coordination meeting to discuss with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) how to implement resolution no. 16/18 on combating defamation of religions, and how to prevent stereotypes depicting religions and their followers; as well as disseminating religious tolerance [sic], which has been endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council last March, in agreement with Western countries.

"Defamation of religions" is OIC-speak for "criticism of Islam."

The resolution was adopted after lengthy discussions held between the OIC and countries in which the phenomenon of Islamophobia is in the rise.

Why would that be?

The U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had announced the intention of the U.S. State Department to organize a coordination meeting during her participation in the meeting which she co-chaired with the OIC Secretary General, Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu in Istanbul on 15 July 2011. The meeting issued a joint statement emphasizing the dire need for the implementation of resolution 16/18.

According to informed sources in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the two sides, in addition to other European parties, will hold a number of specialized meetings of experts in law and religion in order to finalize the legal aspect on how to better implement the UN resolution.

The sources said that the upcoming meetings aim at developing a legal basis for the UN Human Rights Council’s resolution which help in enacting domestic laws for the countries involved in the issue, as well as formulating international laws preventing inciting hatred resulting from the continued defamation of religions.

That would be international laws against critcism of Islam.

On the other hand, the OIC Secretary General, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, stressed that the crime committed recently in Norway was a result of the rise of the extreme right in Europe and its easy mobility in political circles.

The murderous assault on mainly ethnic Norwegian Leftists by a lone psycho is, by definition, an act not just beyond the pale but outside the political realm to which the viperish SecGen refers. He is, however, using it to target the democratic process by which such parties to which he apparently refers have gained varying footholds. But it hasn't been "easy." For voicing their patriotic opposition to the Islamization of their countries, these politicians face fatwas, jihadist plots (and cordon sanitaires) against them -- the direct result of the "easy mobility" of Muslims (and the extreme Left) in Europe.

He said that the OIC had warned several times against of what might be called institutionalization of the phenomenon of Islamophobia through the involvement of the European extreme right in government institutions and political action.

It's called political opposition to the incursions of sharia into European society, political opposition to the ceding of vast swaths of European territory to enclaves of Islam, political opposition to the eradication of indigenous cultures.

He added that the reports of the OIC Islamophobia Observatory for the years 2009 and 2010 had included several warnings about an organized political form which the extreme right may transform into through its parties’ legislation.

In other words, the OIC is attempting to extinguish the democratic opposition to the end of Western civ -- in itself what the OIC might someday call " defamatory democracy." And Hillary it seems, has decided to help.
