Erdogan has long wanted international law making criticism of Islam a crime…that’s what this is all about…

Excerpted from World Bulletin: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday that Islamophobia was a kind of racism such as the other forms of discrimination by describing the term as a crime against humanity.

Releasing a message on International Conference on Islamophobia: Law and Media which is being held in Istanbul, Erdogan stated that the Islamic concepts were used as a negative way bringing defamatory, dismissive and alienating connotations in the western world.

“It must be known that Islamophobia is dangerous as much as racism, discrimination or anti-semitism. Because Islamophobia is a kind of racism such as the other forms of discrimination. It is a crime against humanity” Erdogan said.

Stating that Islamophobia was embittered via movies, soap operas, music, media, photographs even with unofficial articles and essays, Erdogan said 9/11 caused an enemy perception against “Islam” in the western world.

He added “No monotheistic religion adopts, supports, permits or leads terror.”

“Hate ideology”

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said, “Islamophobia as a hate ideology is also a tool of oppression.”

Speaking at the International Conference on Islamophobia: Law and Media in Istanbul on Thursday, Arinc said “The attitudes that cause cultures and civilizations confront each other build psychological barriers between people.”

The main aim of the pressure on Muslims was fed by “Islam and democracy are not compatible with each other” theory”, said Arinc and added, “I clearly express here in this meeting which Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) co-organizes, Muslims are democrats in essence.”

He showed ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party as the most important example.

Arinc also said, “If Christianity and Judaism cannot be mentioned with terrorism, then our noble religion Islam cannot be deflamed this way either.” Keep reading</strong>
