Org. of Islamic Cooperation says “terrorism has no religion,” warns against “hate speech” against Sri Lanka Muslims

The assertion that “terrorism has no religion” only serves to obscure the fact that the Sri Lanka mass murderers were acting in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings. To ignore or deny that fact is to postpone, yet again, the work of developing a realistic response to jihad terror.

“No community should be held responsible for the actions of extremists.”

Of course. No innocent people should ever be held responsible for actions they had nothing to do with. All too often, however, the claim is made that honest analysis of the ideological and doctrinal roots of jihad violence in Islamic texts and teachings is tantamount to scapegoating the entire Muslim community and holding it responsible for the actions of a few. This is actually not the case, any more than an honest analysis of the Nazi ideology as the cause for the violence of the Brownshirts and the SS was holding all Germans responsible for the actions of a few. But the OIC wants to sow this confusion, and has been quite successful in doing so, in pursuit of its ultimate goal of silencing all criticism of Islam, in accord with Sharia blasphemy provisions.

It also renewed its call on the Sri Lanka authorities “to counter firmly the spread of rhetoric of hatred and intolerance, while ensuring the security and safety of the Muslim community in that country,”

The OIC also reiterated its “firm stance against terrorism and extremism in all its forms and manifestations,” stressing that “terrorism has no religion and that no community should be held responsible for the actions of extremists.”…
