Turkish PM: "Anti-Islamism is crime against humanity"

Anti-Islamism Crime Against Humanity: Erdogan

Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan stressed that anti-Islamism must be treated as a crime against humanity just like anti-Semitism, the Turkish daily Zaman reported on Tuesday, September 6. Addressing the sixth meeting of the Eurasian Islamic Council meeting in Istanbul Monday, September 5, Erdogan said his government has added an article to the declaration in the European Council regarding Islamophobia stipulating that anti-Islamism be accepted as a crime against humanity.

Erdogan Asks Islamic Leaders to Explain Islam in the Best Way

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the Eurasian religious leaders to carry out a study against the efforts aiming to associate Islam with terror. The sixth Eurasian Islamic Council meeting arranged by the Religious Affairs Directorate convened in Istanbul Monday. “We struggle against the spread of the misconception of Islam in all international meetings we attend,” the Prime Minister said, as he asked religious leaders to explain to the world that concepts such as “Islamic terror” or “Muslim terrorist” are wrong. Indicating that the efforts to blacken Islam’s image with expressions such as “Islamic terror” and “Muslim terror” had increased particularly after some terror incidents, Erdogan told. “This meeting will be nothing more than a tourist holiday if you just come here, talk and then go on your own way; however, we want to yield fruits from this meeting within the Eurasian geography.” Recalling the government added an article to the declaration in the European Council regarding Islamophobia, he explained that this article necessitates that anti-Islamism will be accepted as a crime against humanity and noted that this was the same case for anti-Semitism.

From an older text about this issue:

"The Fall of Europe" by Ali Sina

In an act of total insanity, the Council of Europe, decided to ban criticism of Islam equating it to anti-Semitism. Selcuk Gultasli in wrote: “Anti-Islamism has been included in the text as a “dangerous inclination” that has to be fought against upon the insistence of Turkey at the summit that 46 Council members attended. The conclusion draft of the summit included the notion of "Islamophobia". The inclusion of this notion in the European organizations' documents for the first time is described as the success of Turkey. Condemnation of any kind of intolerance and discrimination based on gender, race and religious beliefs in particular, including Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, the fight against these within the framework of the Council of Europe and the use of effective mechanisms and rules to combat these problems. Thus, anti-Islamism as well as anti-Semitism will be dealt with within the framework of legal proceedings. The Council reports will include anti-Islamist movements. The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) will closely monitor these movements.

This is the beginning of the fall of Europe. Are we trying to introduce Islamic inquisition to appease Muslims? Are we trying to institute the blasphemy law that is practiced in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran to make Muslims happy? This is insane! Curtailing freedom of speech, specially banning criticism of a doctrine of hate is foolishly dangerous. Europe is playing with fire. The path that Europe has taken today will lead to its fall before the end of this century, but more likely it will auto disintegrate in a civil war in the next two or three decades.

How about making anti-Kaffirism a crime against humanity? Something tells me Erdogan wouldn't support it.

Why do we not have the right to criticize a system that would turn kaffirs into third-class citizens in their own lands?

Because it's not nice, and it's judgemental, and if you do it to some one else then they can do it to you. /sarcasm

Meanwhile in Turkey, Christians are still facing persecution, even though they comprise barely 1% of the population. Yet at the turn of the last century, there was a significant presence of Christians in Turkey. So where have all the Christians gone?

Then there are the missing Armenian Christians of Turkey. What happened to them? Turkey, that great bastion of secularism and our "staunch" ally in the battle against totalitarian communism, denies all knowledge. Oh well, they possibly went on a holiday to the US, and didn’t bother to report the matter to Turkey.

Anyway, according to Barnabus Fund, the few remaining Armenian Christians are facing yet further "persecution". As in the case of the Taliban destroying all signs of the presence of Buddhism in Afghanistan, the Turkish government is doing precisely that, by doing nothing to prevent the destruction of the few Armenian churches still left intact after the genocide that "didn’t happen". Churches are being converted to mosques, and according to a Barnabus Fund letter, a beautiful 10th century church, is being used for target practice.

But what the hell do we know. The EU elite, the incompetent of the incompetent paper-pushers and failed politicians, that couldn’t achieve a career in their home countries, now sit in the ivory towers in Brussels and Strasbourg, living off the fat of our taxes, and tax free to boot, will decide whether we are to be dhimmies of islam or continue to be the dhimmis of the EU.

From Frontpage magazine

This problem is aggravated by known demographic trends. According to the U.S. Department of State's Annual Report on International Religious Freedom 2003, more than 23 million Muslims reside in Europe, excluding Turkey. That is almost 5 percent of the population. With indigenous Europe’s declining birthrate and the increasing immigrant birthrate, many observers, including Princeton’s Bernard Lewis, anticipate a Muslim majority in Western Europe before the end of this century....Such a monumental transformation required the active involvement of senior European officials as documented by Bat Ye’or, an internationally-recognized authority on Euro-Arab relations. She has shown that the Muslim immigration was the result of political decisions taken, more often than not, without public debate, by those same officials and their Arab counterparts in the aftermath of the Arab oil embargo of 1973-74.

I posted a response to a querry from dltq.

This is of interest to all, specially all those who live in Europe, and are deeply concerned in the way our politicians, both national and on the EU level, are knowingly or inadevertantly, destroying the greatest civilisation that has graced this planet.

Wonder what all of you think? We have to do something.

Some items of interest
Man 'killed by Islamic zealots'
A man was shot five times in the head at close range in an "execution" plotted by a group who had failed to convert him to Islam, a jury has heard.

This happened in Britain BTW.

It's all about getting those 'hate laws' passed to squelch the truth. I am just waiting for the day that they try to pass laws protecting Muslims from negative speech about Muslims.

Why can't our leaders see this?

Axis: Our leaders do see this. They are in "panick" mode right now, as they are slowly starting to understand the consequences of what they have done.
