Bad News from Jeddah

I don't know what Mr. Solana is doing. Hopefully he didn't do anything, and hopefully we didn't loose our free speech yesterday in Jedda.

The following is a quote from the Statement of the OIC ambassadorial level extraordinary plenary meeting held in Jeddah, today:

The Member States unanimously approved the five points presented by the OIC Secretary General to Mr. Solana, as a way to diffuse the crisis, and prevent the recurrence of similar crisis in the future, and which call for:

i. the adoption by the EU of necessary legislative measures through the European Parliament against Islamophobia;

ii. making joint efforts by the EU and the OIC to adopt UN Resolution on the lines of existing UN Resolution 60/150 (Combating defamation of religions) which should prohibit defamation of all Prophets and faiths;

iii. the adoption of a code of ethics for the European media;

iv. the adoption of an International Communication Media Order by the United Nations which should cover a definition of freedom of speech in case of religious symbols;

v. the inclusion of an operative paragraph prohibiting blasphemy, defamation of religions and incitement to hatred in the text of Human Rights Council resolution presently being negotiated.
