Not content with demanding that the free nations of the world outlaw the caricaturing of the prophet Mohamed, the “moderate” Muslim group Organization of Islamic Council (OIC) is now trying to piggyback their grievances on the bodies of 3,000 dead Americans.

They are trying to tell us that the Cartoon Controversy is the Muslim world’s 9/11:

The publication of cartoons ridiculing the Prophet Mohamed has had the effect of the September 11 attacks on the Islamic world, argued Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Conference.

Muslims are offended by the cartoons, Mr. Ihsanoglu told High Representative of the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union (EU) Javier Solana; currently on tour in the Middle East.

“It is unfortunate that the Islamic world took the satirical drawings as a different version of the September 11 attacks against them,” said Mr. Ihsanoglu. “I hope,” he added, “the EU will adopt a new ruling to fight against Islamophobia.”

This is the same group that wants the United Nations to pass a resolution outlawing “contempt” for religions and impose sanctions on countries and institutions that don’t toe their line against free speech:

The Muslim world’s two main political bodies say they are seeking a UN resolution, backed by possible sanctions, to protect religions after the publication in Scandinavia of cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad.

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of Organisation of the Islamic Conference, said in Cairo on Sunday that the international body would “ask the UN general assembly to pass a resolution banning attacks on religious beliefs”.

The deputy secretary-general of the Arab League, Ahmed Ben Helli, confirmed that contacts were under way for such a proposal to be made to the UN.

“Consultations are currently taking place at the highest level between Arab countries and the OIC to ask the UN to adopt a binding resolution banning contempt of religious beliefs and providing for sanctions to be imposed on contravening countries or institutions.

I don’t know about you but I’m getting sick and tired of other nations trying to tell me that this or that happening to them is somehow to be equated with the most brutal and deadly terrorist attack in history.

We’ve had Spain’s 9/11 (which was also supposed to be Europe’s 9/11), Great Britain’s 9/11, Indonesia’s 9/11 to name a few. We’ve also had 9/11 used as a metaphor for any number of idiotic issues with the Cartoon Brouhaha only the latest. It makes me wonder if the people trying to piggyback their pet issues and agendas on the ghost of 9/11 ever wonder how totally ridiculous they look.

The OIC wasn’t content with comparing their “plight” to 9/11; they had to throw in references to the Holocaust also, a curious idea since so many of them are Holocaust deniers:

“In Europe unfortunately Muslims have taken the place of Jews during World War II. There is a need for a UN legislation and clarification of existing conventions,” he said.

Ihsanoglu asked for adopting a code of conduct for the European media. “The code of conduct should take into account the sensitivities of the Muslims and defamation in any form or manifestation and the core beliefs of the religions including mocking and criticizing prophets, and it should be considered an ethical offense in the European media code,” he said.


Who do we have to thank for this kind of nonsense? The left in Europe and America of course. The kind of moral relativism that can equate the horrors of Holocaust atrocities with the extinction of snail darters can easily morph into Muslims saying that the mocking of their prophet can equal the death of 6 million human beings. After all, it’s how it makes them “feel” that matters.

I think we should call for a moratorium on the use of both 9/11 and the Holocaust to describe anything but events that are realistically similar in both numbers and impact on history. Don’t hold your breath, though. The world’s “victims” have the media playbook of the left down cold and can manipulate their emotions as easily as a child can be manipulated by fairy tales.


  1. I agree moral relativism stinks. 9/11 and the cartoon are not equivalent in any sense. There has been nothing, (in numbers) outside the closed societies of Stalin and Mao, like the murders in the Holocaust. Even the communist murders were not as diabolical as what the Nazis did.

    How about a moratorium on cowering from, and making excuses for radical Muslims and their Mohammad?

    How about a crash program to build our military strength to face the coming evil?

  2. The longer this goes, the bigger the cartoon Islam becomes. By now, you would think they would have figured that out.

  4. The stupid Muslim’s are working on their 9-11 and it won’t be long at the pace their stupidity is showing. There is a “man” in the White House that won’t hesitate to use nuc’s on them and I personally hope it’s soon. I’ll pay my way to a missile control center in the Dakota’s and push one of the buttons myself and since it takes two people to launch i’m sure I can get a volunteer to push the other. Paint screw ‘Mohamed the idiot’ on the nose of each before launch. I’ve never had much respect for anyone that practices Islam (the bastard religion) and now as you can tell I have no respect for the religion (joke) nor the people that practice death and destruction in the name of any God. Kill them all and let Mohamed sort them out, I doubt he’ll allow even one of them in his kingdom.

  5. “[T]he “moderate” Muslim group Organization of Islamic Council (OIC) is now trying to piggyback their grievances …”

    Uh oh. You said Muslims are trying to PIGgy back something. Don’t you know that pigs are (gasp!) OFFENSIVE to Muslims? Now we’ll see even more riots because of your lack of sensitivity.
