The Muslim world has expressed its outrage after Danish-Swedish politician Rasmus Paludan burned his personal copy of the Qur’an outside the Turkish embassy in Stockholm, Sweden, on Saturday.
After his demonstration, various Islamic governments and thousands of Muslims erupted with diplomatic threats, Allahu Akbar marches, and demands for deadly punishments. Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has even announced it would say no to Sweden’s NATO application. However, Erdoğan and Muslim leaders’ reaction is part of a much larger plan to have the West submit to Islamic laws.
Muslim Leaders Reactions
The Turkish news agency highlighted many of the Islamic government’s reactions and their calls for Sweden to adhere to Islamic law and punish Paludan for blasphemy,
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms the vile attack on our holy book, the Quran, in Sweden today (21 January), despite our repeated warnings earlier,” a Turkish Foreign Ministry statement said.
Calling the act “an outright hate crime,” the ministry said: “Permitting this anti-Islam act, which targets Muslims and insults our sacred values, under the guise of freedom of expression is completely unacceptable.”
“This despicable act is yet another example of the alarming level that Islamophobia and, racist and discriminatory movements have reached in Europe.”
“This senseless and provocative Islamophobic act hurts the religious sensitivities of over 1.5 billion Muslims around the world,” said a statement from the Pakistani Foreign Ministry.
Such actions are “not covered under any legitimate expression of the right to freedom of expression or opinion, which carries responsibilities under international human rights law, such as the obligation not to carry out hate speech and incite people to violence.”
“Pakistan’s concerns are being conveyed to the authorities in Sweden. We urge them to be mindful of the sentiments of the people of Pakistan and the Muslims worldwide and take steps to prevent Islamophobic acts,” the statement added.
The incident “hurts Muslims’ sentiments across the world and marks serious provocation,” Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al Jaber Al Sabah said in statements cited by the state news agency KUNA.
He called on the international community “to shoulder responsibility by stopping such unacceptable acts and denouncing all forms of hatred and extremism and bringing the perpetrators to accountability.”
“Saudi Arabia calls for spreading the values of dialogue, tolerance, and coexistence, and rejects hatred and extremism,” the Saudi Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The United Arab Emirates said it was against “all practices aimed at destabilizing security and stability in contravention of human and moral values and principles”.
Qatar condemned the Swedish authorities’ permission to burn the Holy Quran and call on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities to reject hatred and violence.
Calling it an attempt to stoke hatred and violence against Muslims, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said some European countries under the false pretext of advocating freedom of speech “allow extremist and radical elements to spread hatred against Islamic sanctities and values”.
Kanaani said despite the strong emphasis on human rights in Islam, Europeans continue to “institutionalise anti-Islamism and Islamophobia” in their societies.
He added that the desecration of the Quran is a “clear example of spreading hatred and fueling violence against Muslims”, which has “nothing to do with freedom of speech and thought“.
Jordan “condemned the burning of a copy of the Holy Quran in the Swedish capital Stockholm, stressing the Kingdom’s rejection of this act that fuels hatred.”
It emphasised the necessity to spread the culture of peace and acceptance of the other and “condemning extremism is a collective responsibility.”
Egypt expressed its strong condemnation of the disgraceful act that provokes the feelings of hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world.
Egypt warned of the dangers of the spread of such acts that offend religions and fuel hate speech and violence, calling for upholding the values of tolerance and peaceful coexistence and preventing offense to all religions and their sanctities through such extremist practices that contradict the values of respect for religion.
Organization of Islamic Cooperation
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation bloc said the “provocative action… targets Muslims, insults their sacred values, and serves as further example of the alarming level reached by Islamophobia” and asked Sweden to punish those behind a “hate crime.”
Muslim Nations Fight To Criminalize Speech
As predicted by RAIR Foundation USA, the Qur’an burning will most likely trigger a “day of rage” in the Islamic world. A specific planned set of actions by the Turkish government that advance the cause of submission to Islam in the West through violent and usually deadly protests.
The calls for speech suppression in the wake of Paludan’s Qur’an burning is part of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) ongoing initiative to implement blasphemy laws across the world.
The OIC is an influential bloc of 57 Muslim countries whose primary objective is to pressure Europe and the United States into passing laws that would ban “negative stereotyping of Islam.” The OIC is headquartered in Saudi Arabia and funded by Islamic countries worldwide. It is the second-largest intergovernmental organization in the world after the United Nations, with a collective population reaching over 1.8 billion. Pakistan holds a very privileged status in the OIC; it is the OIC’s second-largest member in terms of population.
The European Union and the United States Democratic Party have worked closely with the OIC and UN to outlaw all forms of “Islamophobia.” The term Islamophobia was invented in the 1990s by a Muslim Brotherhood front group to help export blasphemy laws to the West. Similarly, the term “Hate speech” is the Marxist version of Islamic blasphemy laws.
The “Islamophobia” and “hate speech” scams are insidious because they shut down the most important of American values, freedom of speech.
Blasphemy Laws Introduced To America and EU
In recent years, one of the core activities of the OIC has been repeated attempts to introduce via the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) a law referred to as Resolution 16/18, forbidding any form of blasphemy, criticism, or negative comment about the Islamic religion.
Resolution 16/18 was co-sponsored by the United States, along with Pakistan. During a series of closed-door meetings over at least three years, it was spearheaded by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Following the Obama Administration’s lead, the European Union offered to help the OIC make it an international crime to criticize Islam.
In America in 2016, Eighty-two Democrats cosponsored a House Resolution (H.Res. 569) “Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.” This resolution is very eerily similar to the UN Human Rights Commission’s Resolution 16/18.
Canada’s Motion-103 is the localized Canadian application of Resolution 16/18. Many other Western countries have found ways of circumnavigating their constitutional rights to freedom of speech in a similar manner.
The OIC has used its influence in Brussels to enact “hate speech” legislation to limit what European citizens can say. Restrictions on free speech regarding Islam-related issues are already commonplace throughout Europe. (see here, here, here, and here). The OIC aims to impose blasphemy legislation on the European Union’s 27 member states.
The attempt to enact special legislation to protect Islam in Western and secular nations is a joint Islamic and Marxist effort to stop any dissenting expression. Dissenting expression is typically any attempt to defend Western and especially American culture, values, and identity.
Should “Democratic” countries allow special rights for one group and not others? Islam, perhaps above all, embodies little tolerance for other religions – or even a lack of religion. So affording Islam – or anyone – special rights is the death knell for a society based on equal rights.
Both Islamic law (Sharia) and Marxist thought are not just incompatible with Western culture but explicitly designed to be a destructive force to the Judeo-Christian values historically associated with the West.
Muslim countries’ protests in response to Paludan’s simple act of burning a Qur’an are nothing more than an orchestrated plan specifically tailored to dismantle free expression and usher in Islamic law.

“European politician Věra Jourová warned Elon Musk from the World Economic Forum in Davos that Twitter will face “sanctions” if it does not shut down some forms of speech.”
THESE ARE THE REAL TERRORISTS:
WEF, Klaus Schwab and Věra Jourová !
ARREST AND HANG THEM IMMEDIATELY FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!
Fuellmich and DeSantis, better you just do what you do best, continue changing Soros’ diapers as you can’t start the “Nuremberg Trial II”.
PLEASE NOTE, THESE ALL LISTED HERE BELOW ARE ALL EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TERRORISTS AND MUST BE ARRESTED AND HANGED FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY:
“Attendees at the exclusive January 2023 World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Switzerland, included FBI director Chris Wray, MI6 chief Richard Moore, Secretary-General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg, the CEOs of Amazon, BlackRock and Pfizer (just to name a few), Gates Foundation executives and Cybernetics School director Genevieve Bell

This is a trick, including Sweden, to manipulate the upcoming general elections in Turkey and to further take over the country by radical Islam. Turkish people are tired of your garbage, your chemical waste, the refugees you send. When turkey becomes a secular, democratic and social state of law again, it will reveal the machinations of the Swedish government together with the political Islamists.
Look at the free-of-expression, democratic Sweden toilet paper. It doesn’t publish my comment. you two faced sons of bitches. I will watch you with pleasure while the Russians fuck your mother.
It can’t be blasphemy because the Hadith records how the Quran was compiled, and it declares that the Quran as an entire work had passed out of existence irrespective of their efforts to prevent that from happening. Therefore, it cannot be the word of God.
In 66 Virtues of the Quran, Zaid bin-Thabit reported that while searching for parts of the Quran at the direction of Abu Bakr, he found one particular verse with Abi Khuzaima Al-Ansari (the last verse of Surat at-Tauba ) and with no other person than him.
This means, that if no other human being also had that particular verse, then the Quran as a complete work no longer existed. It had passed out of existence. That could not happen to God’s word!
By their own records, what they compiled and distributed is definitively NOT the original. That is why the fragments from which it was compiled were burned at the direction of those who had been seeking to preserve it.
Would love to see a bunch of Americans do this. I would stand by and support/protect them.
Sorry, you come to the West you live our way. When we go to your country we live your way. Savvy?
Looks like some of them countries were Catholic places in 1980. Tehran had a vibrant night life. Beirut was the jewel. Syria never had these problems. Other than my Gov.s nose under the tent forever what happened? I,ll take a guess. Islam.
Mohammed was a schizophrenic murdering, lying pedophile, and Allah is a demon, the Koran is garbage. Nothing has changed since the 7th century. Jesus warned of false prophets, and Mohammed surely was false. In fact Mo was an illiterate moron who raped children, and the entire Middle East is Epstein’s island (with the exception of parts of Israel). Thank God for Trump. Obama was bending over for those degenerate infidels. Jesus is the only solution to the world’s problems.
Enforced false worship worldwide is coming very soon but it won’t be Islam.
Freedom of religion has its limits… as here in AMERICA our generosity has been exploited to the extreme point of which scumbags like this are trying to force communities they have taken over (thanks to scumbag OBAMA) into complying with Sharia law. People migrate to AMERICA for what it has to offer and rather than assimilate to our cultures and laws, they immediately begin undermining our laws and way of life trying to force us to accept their culture and laws. To me and millions of other AMERICAN’s there is a simple solution… you refuse to assimilate, you break our laws, you attempt to undermine our way of life and destroy our country; you will be immediately deported with no chance of re-entry. You can leave under your own power or you can leave on a slab; your choice, but true AMERICAN’s are getting sick of scum like this regardless of point of origin and they need to be stopped immediately!! The people of Sweden need to stand their ground and send a clear message to these scumbags that their crap will not be permitted. The OIC can go Fv(|< itself!!
Just who was the first person recorded as having burnt the Quran?
The Rashidun Caliph, Uthman ibn Affan, one of the four, “Rightly Guided Caliphs”, and a son-in-law of Muhammad.
WHAT is up with people who go rabid over someone burning HIS OWN COPY of something? There are plenty of things I get upset about, when someone (usually from the government) causes actual harm to someone else. But if you’ve bought and paid for something, or made it yourself, and you want to burn it? Go ahead. Yes, even if it insults something I believe in. Only weak snowflakes freak out over such things.
It’s just another contrived reason for scumbags to riot, loot, burn and destroy what is not theirs and feel justified in doing so. Nothing a good dose lead poising would help prevent in the future.
When I burn the coran, the shit book written by the mass murderer and pedophile mohamed, I always piss on it first then pour petrol on it and burn it.
I am going to make a video where i will burn this satanic book with a EU flag.
