The Durban hate-fest of September 2001 should be well remembered, and at least some have done so. Read Anne Bayefsky’s report on the planning for a followup hate-fest, Durban II.
Durban was an unabashed orgasm of anti-Semitism and anti-Western ranting. It’s what the United Nations specializes in, apparently. Ms. Bayefsky reminds us that we are in, truly, a new holy war, a crusade by another name:
Durban II promises to raise the clash against civilization to new levels of hypocrisy and to inflame racial and religious intolerance the world over. The rallying cry of the U.N. mafioso this time will be “Islamophobia.” At the U.N. Islamophobia is not invoked to mean legitimate objection to discrimination that wrongly targets people of the Islamic faith. It has become a code word for hysterical accusations that Western democracies are engaged in a phony war to end terrorism as a ploy to subjugate Muslims everywhere.Mindful that the best defense is a good offense, Pakistan (on behalf of the 56 member states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC)) made the following announcement on opening day of the first Durban II preparatory meeting held this past August. “The defamation of Islam and discrimination against Muslims represent the most conspicuous demonstration of contemporary racism and intolerance…It is regrettable that the world media has allowed defamation and blasphemy in this form…”
The Christian West must not just lie there meekly and take the kind of lies that are routinely peddled by the Arab and Muslim world. We must at the very least stop fooling ourselves that Islam is about anything other than completely subduing all other faiths. Islam is about, in short, creating an umma that literally encompasses the entire globe.
And making dhimmis, second class (at best) citizens of Christians and others who will not bow to the false god of Islam.
