European Human Rights Conference to Combat Discrimination Against Muslims

Yes, you read the title correctly. Apparently the intolerance of Islam is allowed across Europe, and basically Europe is silent about it, as no one wants to "offend" Muslims. Now a European human rights conference wants to ensure that Muslims are protected, even as Europe falls to Islam.

Hat tip to Savvy.

Europe's largest human rights conference to take place 28 September - 9 October 2009.

The 2009 Human Dimension Implementation Meeting (HDIM), organized by the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), will take place in Warsaw, Poland, 28 September to 9 October.

The HDIM is Europe's largest human rights conference and is a forum where representatives from government, civil society and international organizations discuss the implementation of OSCE commitments in the human dimension. It is the single most important yearly OSCE event focusing on human rights and democracy in Europe, North America, and Central Asia. OSCE will review how and to what extent governments in the region have put their human rights and democracy commitments into practice.

OSCE commitments to combat intolerance and discrimination and promote mutual respect and understanding will be discussed on 5 October. During this session ODIHR intends to present an advanced version of its annual hate crime report and draft guidelines for educators to combat intolerance and discrimination against Muslims.
