The Reading of the Brussels Declaration

ICLA logo (new)

The culmination of the International Conference for Free Speech and Human Rights on July 9 2012 was the reading and signing of the Brussels Declaration.

The Declaration sets up a global strategic line of action against the worldwide Islamic enforcement program for Shariah Law.

In the video below, Alain Wagner introduces the document, after which I read the text of the resolution, and then Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff reads the eight requirements demanded of our governments.

The signing of this document marks the beginning of the Brussels Process, an ongoing initiative which aims to protect free speech and individual liberty from being undermined by proponents of Shariah Law.

Many thanks to Europe News for recording this video, and to Vlad Tepes for uploading it:

Yes, you guys are the good guys. Sun Tzu had it that when the enemy is angry, irritate him. I suspect you have managed a twofer, you have angered and irritated them. Congratulations and thank you all.

This is a wonderful declaration.

It is focused on national and international, but I think the strength of its implementation will be local politics.

I live in the Dallas area, and would like to have or join a local organization that works with local politicians and officials to adhere to the Brussels Declaration, and educate local politicians and voters.

The anti-Sharia movement has been identified with conservative politics, but in truth, both liberal and conservative citizens have a vital interest in the Brussels provisions. I would not join a movement that was identified with any political party.

A political party is focused on power first and issues second. This is not such a bad thing, as long as people don't look to politics for the deeper meaning of their government.

There is no reason why some Muslims cannot be a member of such a group. I personally have issues with how a Muslim can put off the fundamental principles of Islam like Sharia, but I believe its possible. But, the proof should be on the individual Muslim, rather than going by the assumption that a Muslim is innocent until proven guilty.

RonaldB --

If you want to get involved in a local organization that resists Shariah, I suggest the Texas chapter of ACT! for America. Brigitte Gabriel has built an effective grassroots movement across the entire USA.

There are overseas chapters as well -- Elisabeth, with whom I shared the podium in Brussels, is Austrian chapter head of ACT! for America.

ACT! has been staunch in its efforts to get state legislatures to pass local versions the ALAC (American Law for American Courts) model bill, which is one of the best tools we have for resisting creeping Shariah.

Captured that video (using a nice Firefox add-on) and will beam it across to my iPad and watch it later on.

Ronald B-

Another way to be effective is to email your Congressional representative and insist that he/she demand some answers on the placement of members of the Muslim Brotherhood in positions of influence in our government.

We're too cool for anything like the old House Unamerican ACtivities Committee, but those investigations turned out to be even truer than we knew once the KGB opened its files after the fall of the USSR.

The irrational, reactive firebrands of old, the ones who made the name "McCarthy" synonymous with hatred, were forerunners of John McCain & his predictable antics. His rants in the Senate against those House representatives brave enough to question the wisdom of giving top clearance to people whose relatives are card-carrying (so to speak) members of the MB speaks volumes about his lack of discernment and loyalty.

Yeah, he suffered heavily under Communism. Now he wants us all to shut up and submit to the new supremacists on the block. His hubris is on a level with Obama's only much louder.

BTW, while you're at it, email your senators, too. It couldn't be easier. Go to the Library of Congress' webpage and look on the left side bar for a clickable link to both the House reps and your senators:

Library of Congress: Thomas

That site has all you could want about our reps and senators, current bills, treaties, committee reports, etc. In other words, it provides part of the transparency re legislative proceedings that we so sorely need.

The middle column has Current Legislative Info. The third column (the one on the right)has Current Activity - and on the bottom is the THOMASdotgov Twitter account.

You can view the Top Ten Senate and House bills there too.

Definitely a page to bookmark. Your rep's aides will come to know your name ;-)

Also - don't use snail mail to legislators unless you send it to their local offices. The one in Washington is so heavily secured against anthrax, etc., that your letter will be delivered long after the guy is out of office.

Fax if you have the ability to do so. Theorhetically we have a fax in the Baron's computer but we long ago gave up trying to access it. Emails thru Thomasdotgov are much better.
