Preamble

We, Representatives of our respective Parliaments from across the world, convening in Paris for the founding Conference and Summit of the Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Islamophobia, draw the democratic world’s attention to the resurgence of islamophobia as a potent force in politics, international affairs and society.

 

We note the dramatic increase in recorded islamophobic hate crimes and attacks targeting Muslims and property, and Islamic religious, educational and communal institutions.

We are alarmed at the resurrection of the old language of prejudice and its modern manifestations in rhetoric and political action exactly the same way these were used during the Nazi period against Jews, and Jewish beliefs and practices.

We are alarmed by Government-backed islamophobia in general, and state-backed genocidal islamophobia, in particular.

We, as Parliamentarians, affirm our commitment to a comprehensive programme of action to meet this challenge.

We call upon national governments, parliaments, international institutions, political and civic leaders, NGOs, and civil society to affirm democratic and human values, build societies based on respect and citizenship and combat any manifestations of islamophobia and discrimination.

We today in Paris resolve that;

Challenging Islamophobia

1. Parliamentarians shall expose, challenge, and isolate political actors who engage in hate against Muslims and target Muslim countries as an Islamic collectivity;

2. Parliamentarians should speak out against islamophobia and discrimination directed against any minority, and guard against equivocation, hesitation and justification in the face of expressions of hatred;

3. Governments must challenge any foreign leader, politician or public figure who denies, denigrates or trivialises the suffering of the Palestinians, and must encourage civil society to be vigilant to this phenomenon and to openly condemn it;

 

4. Parliamentarians should campaign for their Government to uphold international commitments on combating islamophobia -including the OSCE Berlin Declaration and its eight main principles;

5. The UN should reaffirm its call for every member state to commit itself to the principles laid out in the Naqba initiative including specific and targeted policies to eradicate denial and trivialisation of the atrocities perpetrated on the Palestinian people, the people of Libanon, and other nations which have been victims of israeli atrocities;

6. Governments and the UN should resolve that never again will the institutions of the international community and the dialogue of nation states be abused to try to establish any legitimacy for islamophobia, including the singling out of Islamic nations for discriminatory treatment in the international arena, and we will never witness – or be party to -another gathering like the United Nations World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and other related Intolerances in Durban in 2001;

7. The OSCE should encourage its member states to fulfil their commitments under the 2004 Berlin Declaration and to fully utilise programmes to combat islamophobia including the Law Enforcement programme LEOP;

8. The European Union, inter-state institutions, multilateral fora and religious communities must make a concerted effort to combat islamophobia and lead their members to adopt proven and best practice methods of countering islamophobia;

9. Leaders of all religious faiths should be called upon to use all the means possible to combat islamophobia and all types of discriminatory hostilities among believers and society at large;

  1. The EU Council of MinistersProhibitions
  2. Governments
  3. Parliamentarians should legislate effective Hate Crime legislation recognising “hate aggravated crimes” and, where consistent with local legal standards, “incitement to hatred” offences and empower law enforcement agencies to convict;
  4. Governments that are signatories to the Hate Speech Protocol of the Council of Europe ‘Convention on Cybercrime’ (and the ‘Additional Protocol to the Convention on cybercrime, concerning the criminalisation of acts of a racist and xenophobic nature committed through computer systems’) should enact domestic enabling legislation; Identifying the threat
  5. Parliamentarians should return to their legislature, Parliament or Assembly and establish inquiry scrutiny panels that are tasked with determining the existing nature and state of islamophobia in their countries and developing recommendations for government and civil society action;
  6. Parliamentarians should engage with their governments in order to measure the effectiveness of existing policies and mechanisms in place and to recommend proven and best practice methods of countering islamophobia;
  7. Governments should ensure they have publicly accessible incident reporting systems, and that statistics collected on islamophobia should be the subject of regular review and action by government and state prosecutors and that an adequate legislative framework is in place to tackle hate crime;
  8. Governments must expand the use of the EUMC ‘Working Definition of islamophobia’ to inform policy of national and international organisations and as a basis for training material for use by Criminal Justice Agencies;
  9. Police services should record allegations of hate crimes and incidents -including islamophobia -as routine part of reporting crimes;
  10. The OSCE
  1. Education, awareness and training
  2. Governments
  3. Governments
  4. The Council of Europe should act efficiently for the full implementation of its ‘Declaration and Programme for Education for Democratic Citizenship based on the Rights and Responsibilities of the Citizens’, adopted on 7 May 1999 in Budapest;
  5. Governments should include a comprehensive training programme across the Criminal Justice System using programmes such as the LEOP programme;
  6. Education Authorities

Community Support

  1. The Criminal Justice System should publicly notify local communities when islamophobic hate crimes are prosecuted by the courts to build community confidence in reporting and pursuing convictions through the Criminal Justice system;
  2. Parliamentarians

Media and the Internet

  1. Governments should acknowledge the challenge and opportunity of the growing new forms of communication;
  2. Media Regulatory Bodies should utilise the EUMC ‘Working Definition of islamophobia’ to inform media standards;
  3. Governments should take appropriate and necessary action to prevent the broadcast of islamophobic programmes on satellite television channels, and to apply pressure on the host broadcast nation to take action to prevent the transmission of islamophobic programmes;
  4. The OSCE should seek ways to coordinate the response of member states to combat the use of the internet to promote incitement to hatred;
  5. Law enforcement authorities should use domestic “hate crime”, “incitement to hatred” and other legislation as well as other means to mitigate and, where permissible, to prosecute “Hate on the Internet” where racist and islamophobic content is hosted, published and written;
  6. An international task force

Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Islamophobia

  1. Participants will endeavour to maintain contact with fellow delegates through the working group framework, communicating successes or requesting further support where required;
  2. Delegates

 

Comment: Well my friends, I have a little confession to make. The document above is a slight rewite of the so called 'London Declaration on Anti-Semitism' which has already been signed by a number of parliamentarians from several countries. I have swapped the various forms of the word anti-Semitism with Islamophobia, Jews with Muslims, London with Paris, and in a few places I have replaced text mentioning the state of Israel with something related to Palestine. Most of it was left exactly as it was, as it didn't need any changes.

I hope this will be a warning to those people who routinely brand Muslims as the primary threat to free speech. In the (original version) of the London Declaration on Anti-Semitism it is demonstrated how an ethnic group is trying to taylor "hate speech" laws, censorship, education etc. exactly to fit its own special 'needs'. And everybody, no matter how much sympathy for Jews, Zionism and Israel, must be able to understand that declarations such as the 'London Declaration on Anti-Semitism' of course will be exploited to the same extent by Muslims and other so called minorities, who will spell out their own amendmends in more similar legislation.

Muslims are not the greatest threat to free speech; Jewish organizations and policies are. Muslims can lie on their backs and wait untill their Jewish enablers have installed the orwellian laws which will allow them to dominate society.

You can read the original 'London Declaration on Anti-Semitism' here, where Stuart Littlewood also analyzes the text in his piece 'Criticism of Israel cannot be regarded as anti-Semitic'.

By the way, I did a similar rewrite with an article written by disgraced Zionist Denis MacShane titled: Global anti-Gentilism demands a united response - Answer to Denis MacShane
