"There can be no freedom without limits."
Delegates were given a voluminous report by the OIC that recorded anti-Islamic speech and actions from around the world. The report concludes that Islam is under attack and that a defence must be mounted.
"Muslims are being targeted by a campaign of defamation, denigration, stereotyping, intolerance and discrimination," charged Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the secretary general of the group.
The report urges the creation of a "legal instrument" to crack down on defamation of Islam.
Some delegates point to laws in Europe criminalizing the denial of the Holocaust and other anti-Semitic rhetoric.
They also point to articles within various UN charters that condemn discrimination based on religion and argue that these should be toughened.
"In our relation with the western world, we are going through a difficult time," Ihsanoglu told the summit's general assembly.
"Islamophobia cannot be dealt with only through cultural activities but (through) a robust political engagement."
The International Humanist and Ethical Union in Geneva released a statement accusing the Islamic states of attempting to limit freedom of expression and of attempting to misuse the UN.
Human Rights Watch said in a statement that objectionable depictions of the Prophet Muhammad do not "give them the right under international human rights law to insist that others abide by their views."
Hemayet Uddin, the lead author of the OIC report and head of cultural affairs for the group, said legal action is needed because "this Islamophobia that we see in the world has gone far beyond a phobia."
"It is now at the level of hatred, of xenophobia, and we need to act."
A new charter drafted by the OIC commits the Muslim body "to protect and defend the true image of Islam" and "to combat the defamation of Islam."


The Muslim world feels they need to defend their religion against political cartoonists and racists and have developed ways of doing so. They are considering taking legal action against those that disgrace their religion or it’s sacred symbols. The Muslim leaders want to demand compensation from nations like Denmark, which allow publications of cartoons that slander their religion. Legal measures have not been decided on yet but the idea is that Muslims want western governments to put limits on the amount of freedom of speech their citizens have. Delegates here were given a report from the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) with evidence of an anti-Islam speech and other actions from around the world. They want action on this issue now. "Muslims are being targeted by a campaign of defamation, denigration, stereotyping, intolerance and discrimination," charged Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the secretary general of the OIC.
