Free speech and religious liberty are two of America’s most cherished protections. But if the Organization of Islamic Cooperation gets its way, that could change not only in the United States, but around the world. The Muslim group is pushing a United Nations resolution that would criminalize criticism of religions.
Frank Gaffney, president of the American Center for Security Policy, didn’t mince words against the group — likening the OIC to a “multi-national Muslim mafia.It is 57 states and Palestine that have come together to promote what is fundamentally the agenda that is known as Sharia,” he explained.
Religious rights groups say the U.N. resolution is really designed to prevent criticism of Islam and give cover to Islamic Sharia-based blasphemy laws like those in Pakistan.
