Turning liberalism on itself

By Robert Sibley , The Ottawa Citizen

…Consider recent statements by Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, a 57-member voting bloc in the UN that directed much of the Durban II agenda, and ensured that Libya chaired the conference. Ihsanoglu has boasted how the riots that erupted in Europe after the publication of Danish cartoons about the Prophet Mohammed were “a clear message to the West regarding the red lines that should not be crossed.” The West, he said, must “look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility.” In other words, “freedom of speech stops when dealing with Islam,”

An excellent summation of Durban II.
