The Organization of Islamic Cooperation: Infringing on Free Speech
with Deborah Weiss
Thursday, April 11th 6:00 – 7:15 p.m.
At The Westminster Institute
6731 Curran Street, McLean, VA 22101
The OIC has been aggressively campaigning through the United Nations and elsewhere to treat any criticism of Islam or its Prophet as a criminal act. The OIC’s agenda has been highly successful not only in the organization’s member nations where the law is used to persecute religious minorities, but also in Europe, Canada, and throughout the United Nations system. Is America next? What is the Obama Administration doing in response to these actions? Deborah Weiss will provide an update on these efforts and explain why the success of the OIC’s agenda could spell the end of freedom of expression in the West.
Deborah Weiss currently works for “Vigilance”, an organization dedicated to educating the public on terrorism-related issues.
