Preparing for the Universal Ummah

OIC 40th anniversary logo

As has often been discussed in this blog, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is the worldwide clearinghouse for political Islam. This makes the OIC the linchpin of the Ummah, and thus the enabler and promoter of the Great Jihad. More than any other Islamic entity, the OIC merits the closest scrutiny of the Counterjihad.

In an article today in The American Thinker, Bat Ye’or has composed a succinct summary of the history, mission, and significance of the OIC. She begins with this overview:

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is a religious and political organization. Close to the Muslim World League of the Muslim Brotherhood, it shares the Brotherhood’s strategic and cultural vision: that of a universal religious community, the Ummah, based upon the Koran, the Sunna, and the canonical orthodoxy of shari’a. The OIC represents 56 countries and the Palestinian Authority (considered a state), the whole constituting the universal Ummah with a community of more than one billion three to six hundred million Muslims.

The OIC has a unique structure among nations and human societies. The Vatican and the various churches are de facto devoid of political power, even if they take part in politics, because in Christianity, as in Judaism, the religious and political functions have to be separated. Asian religions, too, do not represent systems that bring together religion, strategy, politics, and law within a single organizational structure.

Not only does the OIC enjoy unlimited power through the union and cohesion of all its bodies, but also to this it adds the infallibility conferred by religion. Bringing together 56 countries, including some of the richest in the world, it controls the lion’s share of global energy resources. The European Union (EU), far from anticipating the problems caused by such a concentration of power and investing in the diversification and autonomy of energy sources since 1973, acted to weaken America internationally in order to substitute for it the U.N., the OIC’s docile agent. In the hope of garnering a few crumbs of influence, the EU privileged a massive Muslim immigration into Europe, paid billions to the Mediterranean Union and Palestinian Authority, weakened the European states, undermined their unity, and wrapped itself in the flag of Palestinian justice, as though this would supply some protective system against the global jihad, which it endeavored to focus on Israel.

Ms. Ye’or also points out what has often been noted here: the OIC is the nascent Caliphate, ready to re-establish what was abolished in 1924. It’s also obvious that Turkey is lining up for the privilege of hosting the new Caliph, thus re-establishing the Ottoman Empire at the same time.

By characterizing Muslim violence all over the world as “legitimate resistance”, the OIC supports jihad against non-Muslims in its various manifestations. This is a logical extension of the OIC’s assertion that its mandate extends to all Muslims, including those who form a minority within non-Muslim countries.

This extraterritorial ambition — to influence legal and political doings in countries where such matters are none of its business — is characteristic of political Islam. In this enterprise the OIC is aided and abetted by cowardly Western leaders, who are only too willing to grant the concessions sought by the Muslim Brotherhood.

As Ms. Ye’or says:

The Islamic Court of Justice has an international mandate and could try foreigners, both Muslims and non-Muslims (blasphemers, apostates, resisters to jihad) who have broken the laws of shari’a anywhere. Moreover, the claim by the OIC to be the guardian and protector of Muslim immigrants living in all countries that are not members of the OIC implies an extension of its jurisdiction and political influence over all the Muslims of Europe, North and South America, and the other non-Member States. This situation exacerbates the danger incurred by non-religious European Muslims, whether atheists, apostates, or free thinkers.

Islamic law is a danger not only to the Copts in Egypt, the Baha’i in Iran, and the Maronites in Lebanon. It menaces all non-Muslims everywhere, because the craven and/or bespoke elected leaders of Western countries are passive and supine in the face of it.

By characterizing Muslim violence all over the world as “legitimate resistance”, the OIC supports jihad against non-Muslims in its various manifestations.

Instrumental to this is the OIC’s strident emphasis upon how pervasive Islamophobia supposedly continues to be. Without this integral component to cement the role of Muslims as perpetual victims, the cloaking of international terrorism as “legitimate resistance” would fall apart.

This is what makes it so important to expose Islam as the totalitarian and supremacist political theocracy that it is. Painting Islam as a violent predator and intolerant, misogynist cult is instrumental to ripping away the mask of its otherwise successful deception as being the Religion of Peace™.

This extraterritorial ambition — to influence legal and political doings in countries where such matters are none of its business — is characteristic of political Islam.

Taken together, this is also what makes it increasingly vital to hold all Muslim-majority nations collectively responsible for global terrorism. Islam must not be allowed to have it both ways. It cannot be a stateless entity that disallows retribution or retaliation against specific players due to their being non-nationals while simultaneously pretending to be an established political entity intent on world domination.

From the full article: The OIC supports all the jihadist movements considered to be resisting "foreign occupation," including those in "occupied" Indian Kashmir, and condemns the "humiliation and oppression" of Muslims in India.

While nowhere admitting to the comprehensive, institutionalized "humiliation and oppression" of non-Muslims in nearly every single Muslim-majority country. Again, Islam insists upon having its cake and eating it too even as it denies doing exactly what it so emphatically decries. This sort of hypocrisy should be treated as actionable.

This situation exacerbates the danger incurred by non-religious European Muslims, whether atheists, apostates, or free thinkers.

Which is all the more reason we in the West need to make this sort of nefarious garbage a dangerous thing for any Muslim to participate in. My own feeling is that whatever building it is which houses plenary sessions of the OIC needs to undergo a massive and catastrophic structural failure while this group is in full session.

A message must be sent to Islam that aspiring to global domination bears with it fatal consequences for all who are foolish enough to participate. Only when playing at jihad becomes consistently lethal for all involved will there be any rethinking of this supremacist nonsense. Until then all of us are targets and everything we hold dear remains at risk. Those tables need to be turned post haste.

From the full article: Such a combined political and religious institution is at the very outer rim of Western thinking, anchored as it is in the separation between politics and religion.

How is it that so many here in the West have managed to utterly forget the drastic consequences which Christian theocracy posed for Europe? This is not a swipe at Christianity − which, to its lasting credit, has largely foresworn such aims − but an emphatic questioning of why too many in the West have so thoroughly forgotten the lessons of history.

Rooted in individualism, Europeans cultivate the search for happiness and cherish freedom of thought and of rational, scientific exploration, which are perceived as a human being's greatest privilege and finest adventure.

Even the most cursory comparison of European and Islamic achievements makes it excruciatingly clear just how toxic shari’a law would be to a free world. Yet, somehow, huge numbers of those who most benefit from this modern enlightenment are conspicuously silent when it comes to defying and actively combating Islam.

This represents an unreserved abdication of personal responsibility and it is only a complete and total unlearning of history that has permitted such widespread ignorance to not inspire the harsh degree of public censure that such historical illiteracy most richly deserves.

Conversely, aspiring to the Caliphate indicates the longing for a supreme authority owing its infallibility to Allah and his human intermediary, Mohammed. According to Ibn Khaldoun, this institution placing politics at the service of worldwide, religious expansionism was created as instrument for the mandatory Islamization of mankind.

I dread to think of what will required before people in the West finally realize that any attempt at imposing “mandatory Islamization” must become an automatic and summary death sentence for those who are fanatical enough to seek it.

Taking in water from every side, this West that abandons its own identity for multilateralism and multiculturalism and ruins its citizenry by buying security has little chance of survival.

Churchill’s words ring ever more true:

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
