Foreign ministers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) yesterday expressed grave concern at the rising tide of discrimination and intolerance against Muslims, especially in Europe and North America.
“It is something that has assumed xenophobic proportions,” they said in unison.
“The increasingly negative political and media discourse targeting Muslims and Islam in the United States and Europe has made things all the more difficult,”
“The ministers also pointed out that whenever the issue of Islamophobia was discussed in international forums, the Western bloc, particularly some members of the European Union, tried to avoid discussing the core issue and instead diverted the attention from their region to the situation of non-Muslims and human rights in the OIC member states.”
“In the Muslim world, endeavors have to be made to dispel misperceptions about the West and to promote democracy, human rights and good governance.”
According to OIC’s European observers, the taking over of the European Union presidency by Slovenia in 2008 will augur well for Muslims.
“Because Slovenia has declared that intercultural dialogue will be among the first four priorities of its EU presidency, it has accordingly set up a task force to implement the ‘European Year of Intercultural Dialogue 2008’ program.”
The OIC observers said the Slovenian minister of foreign affairs had already invited the OIC secretary-general to Ljubljana before or during the Slovenian EU presidency to discuss possible joint projects.

Halloooooooooooo!!! Hvilket univers befinder d’herrer arabiske ministre sig i? Her bliver sandelig alting vendt på hovedet. Og ih hvor det synd for dem, at deres projekt med islamisering af Vesten ikke går helt efter planen.
Og høre dem sige, at de prøver på at udrydde misforståelser om Vesten i deres egne arabiske lande og indføre demokrati og rettigheder for ikke-muslimer.
Disse løgne tror de vel ikke engang selv på.
