The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Islamists at the UN

British MP: Muslim states should demand a seat on the UN Security Council.
Regarding India’s efforts to get a permanent seat in the UN Security Council, [Labour Party MP Muhammad Sarwar] said it was amazing that not even a single Muslim state had ever demanded a seat on the world body. "I think the heads of Muslim states should demand a seat in the UNSC for the representation of 1.2 billion Muslims of the world," said the British parliamentarian.
Maybe they will. The UN's largest voting bloc, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), will soon be getting a facelift.
The 57-nation OIC [ed. note: actually, 56; they count the non-state of Palestine] is to consider changing its name, charter and structure in a major overhaul aimed at projecting a more moderate image, Malaysia said on Tuesday.

Malaysia’s Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar said after returning from the OIC Commission of Eminent Persons (CEP) meeting in Islamabad last week that the group had come up with a plan to give the OIC a completely new look.
Lipstick on a pig. Heh. Oops.
"The agreement was that first of all we must improve our image. We must project Muslim nations to be seen as moderate countries and be mainstream players in international politics," he told reporters.
Ummm, image isn't really the problem. Killing people and vowing to finish what Hitler started kind of is.
"To achieve this we must undertake some programs, we must have better media interaction and more interaction with people of different religions and cultures."
Yeah, because the proliferation of mosques in every Western country, and AFP and al-Reuters' obedient cheerleading dhimmified reporting isn't nearly good enough.
"We propose a change to the OIC name as well as the contents of its charter. Now we want to take a global context," he said. Syed Hamid said the two-day meeting focused on the challenges facing Muslims in the 21st century and how to make the world’s biggest grouping of Muslim nations more relevant.
More relevant, eh. I'd say 9/11 put Muslim nations on the map. And without the OIC, who would have made sure that fully 30% of all General Assembly resolutions since the UN's inception condemn Israeli "aggression"?

Furthermore, formerly clueless Westerners are now studying Urdu, Pashtu, Farsi, and various Arabic dialects;

aware that the shalwar-kameez, hijab, burqa, and kaffiyeh are items of clothing;

familiar with the concepts of jihad, taqqiya, kaffir, da'wa, jizya, and hudna;

understand that imams, mullahs, and muftis are all Muslim clerics of one sort or another, and that the fatwas they issue are usually death warrants;

know that the Islamic penalties for premarital sex, theft, adultery, and apostasy are gang-rape, having a hand chopped off, stoning, and death, respectively;

experience a surge of adrenaline when we hear "Allahu Akbar" because it means someone is about to die;

and have learned that the Qur'an is so holy, the only surefire way to avoid disrespecting it and causing riots is to convert to Islam and institute shari'a.

If the OIC is so distressed that the Muslim world hasn't advanced past the 12th century, I'd cautiously suggest that "image" and "relevancy" are not the problem.
