Obama Official Attends 'Symposium on Defamation of Islam'

An Obama administration official reportedly attended a Monday meeting with Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) officials to work on banning any speech that “associates Islam or Islamists to violence.” 

The official was U.S. Consul General in Jeddah Anne Casper (pictured above), and the meeting took place in Saudi Arabia.

It apparently matters not that “Islamic terrorists have carried out over 19,000 deadly attacks in the name of Islam since the 9-11 attacks in New York,” Washington DC, and Pennsylvania.

The meeting was advertised as a “Symposium on Defamation of Islam.” It was the next step in OIC’s push to ultimately ban criticism of Islam or Mohammed. 

OIC got its foot in the door on this subject when its resolution for “religious tolerance” was adopted by the U.N. in December 2011, with strong support from the Obama administration.
