An organized effort is underway worldwide orchestrated by a powerful Islamic political body to criminalize speech that "offends" Muslims. As much as that may sound like some fantastic conspiracy theory, these Muslim leaders broadcast their group's every move on their website—yet America's ruling elites refuse to listen.

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is the second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations representing 57 member states which seek to criminalize speech that violates the archaic tenets of Sharia law.

The OIC is comprised of the kings and heads of state of all Islamic countries numbering its membership at 57 states by including the non-existent state of Palestine.

As reported last week on HUMAN EVENTS, the OIC website says it comprises "the collective voice of the Muslim world" making "policy decisions" and providing "guidance on all issues pertaining to the realization of the objectives and consider other issues of concern to the Member States and the Ummah."

The ummah is the worldwide body of Muslim believers.

The OIC's claim to speak for "the collective voice of the Muslim world" carries great weight considering its membership. The OIC is not an Islamic religious organization but a political entity exercising political power and territorial claims through all of its member states as well as the ummah.

On December 8, 2005, at a heads-of-state-level summit, the OIC ratified its "Ten-Year Programme of Action to Meet the Challenges Facing the Muslim Ummah in the 21st Century."

The plan, among other things, seeks to define slander according to Islamic Sharia law—making Islamic “slander” a serious crime in every jurisdiction in the world, including the United States.

It is a crime to criticize the queers in Canada. So, I look for a limitation of free speech there and in the EU. Don't think Americans will ever put up with that shit here.

I don't think too many people here want that. We want people to be polite to each other of their own volition, not because it's mandated by law.

Two words: McCain-Feingold.

We've started accepting limits on our political speech, which is the only kind that matters. Once you accept the first limits, the rest tend to snowball, because the basic premise is that you can limit some speech for the benefit of "society."
