HR569 - The Istanbul Process is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s major transnational law initiative, undertaken in partnership with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It was established to “implement” measures against speech and expression against Muslims (and ONLY Muslims).
Hillary Clinton co-chaired the "Istanbul Process" first conference along with the OIC secretary general in July 2011, in Istanbul, with the foreign ministers of many Muslim countries in attendance.
The second was held over three days of closed-door meetings in December, at the offices of the U.S. Department of State in Washington. That meeting drew enough controversy within free-speech circles to raise questions about whether the process would continue.
The process eventually culminated with CONGRESSIONAL HOUSE RESOLUTION 569 (HR 569). Google "HR569" for some very interesting reading!!
HR 569 specifically names Muslims as a special class, worthy of protection from “bigotry or hateful rhetoric”. “Hateful rhetoric” is a subjective term and can mean anything, including criticism of Islam, and in the Shari’a “bigotry” can be something as simple as rejection of Islam itself, which is an offense to Muslims according to the Sharia, and justifies jihad.
We are seeing the results of this manifested in European countries today. I do not ever recall a House Resolution which gives special preference to Jews, Christians, Buddhists, or any other religious group. Do you find this outrageous?
The point of the Istanbul Process is for the governments of the developed West give an accounting to the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Pakistan, Qatar, and other key Muslim states on measures taken to stop American and other Western citizens from disparaging Islam.
