…Not with a bang, but with a whimper.
A new documentary entitled Silent Conquest has just been released. It covers a topic which regular Gates of Vienna readers are very familiar with, but which most Americans — and many Western Europeans — remain blissfully unaware of.
For the last three decades, working slowly, patiently, and carefully, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has been quietly dismantling the right to free speech in Western countries. Working through the United Nations and other international bodies, it aims to criminalize “defamation for religions” — and by “religions”, of course, it means Islam, and Islam alone.
In addition to the prominent Counterjihad activists listed in the press release, Silent Conquest features interviews with Kurt Westergaard, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, and Lars Hedegaard, among others.
For a limited time, the entire 83-minute movie has been made available for viewing on the internet (Warning: some of the images shown in this movie may be disturbing or offensive to sensitive viewers):

The End of Freedom of Expression in the West
‘Silent Conquest’: New Movie Documents Islamist Threat to Free Speech — and Obama’s Support for It
New York: On September 25, 2012, President Obama astonished many Americans by declaring, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” This is a sentiment espoused by radical Islamist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Taliban and al Qaeda. Worse yet, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, revealed the lengths to which the Obama administration is prepared to go to enforce this view when she told the family of a former SEAL killed last month in Benghazi that the producer of a video she falsely claimed precipitated that attack would be “arrested and prosecuted.” He was subsequently taken into custody and remains in jail.
Now, a powerful documentary entitled “Silent Conquest” explains why these affronts to the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of freedom of speech are not isolated incidents. Rather, they are part of an ominous pattern of Team Obama’s submission to the stealthy Islamist effort to enforce in this country the supremacist doctrine known as shariah and its prohibition of any expression that “offends” Islam or its god, prophet or followers.
The film features interviews with U.S. and foreign legislators, journalists, national security and other experts and Muslim, former Muslim and non-Muslim activists including:
- Best-selling author Mark Steyn
- Allen West, Member of Congress
- Geert Wilders, Member of the Dutch Parliament
- Baroness Caroline Cox, Member of the British House of Lords
- ACT! for America founder Brigitte Gabriel
- Middle East scholar and author Daniel Pipes
- American Islamic Leadership Council founder Zuhdi Jasser MD
- Former Muslim and author Nonie Darwish
- Former Defense Department official Frank Gaffney
- Lord Malcolm Pearson, Member of the British House of Lords
- Naser Khader, Member of the Danish Parliament
- Author and financial terrorism expert Rachel Ehrenfeld
- Author Pastor Mark Durie
“Silent Conquest” offers a frightening insight into the extent to which Europe, Canada and the United Nations have already succumbed to the restrictions of shariah blasphemy laws. Its stark warning about the Obama administration’s substantial efforts to accommodate them here, as well, is a wake-up call for every American.
