On 9 July 2012, the International Civil Liberties Alliance presented the International Human Rights and Freedom of Speech Conference in the European Parliament in Brussels. The conference was organised in response to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)'s "Istanbul Process," which seeks to institute a global blasphemy law under sharia doctrine that would ban freedom of expression worldwide. The principal outcome of ICLA’s July 2012 Conference in the European Parliament was the "Brussels Declaration to Safeguard Individual Liberties and Human Rights."
We're stuck with the Greek misery. I predict that nothing will come of all those beautiful plans for privatizations. The Greek state is weak, a large part of the population is lazy. I also tried to keep the Italians from the euro zone. I didn't succeed.

(...) Now that security services have compiled a dossier, the prosecutor must decide whether an investigation will be started.
I notice that certain bloggers (...) keep spreading the utterly false rumor that I am the evil shooter from Utøya, the island just outside of Oslo.
Toilet paper sold in the Carrefour supermarkets was withdrawn from shops in Belgium. The toilet paper is decorated with zodiac signs. Two of those signs, Virgo and Capricorn, resemble the Arabic words for Allah and Muhammad. (...)
Europe risks losing all its precious gifts: human dignity, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, rule of law, separation of state and mosque. Across Europe there are dozens of journalists, cartoonists and writers who are living under terrorist threats. (...)
My trial in Amsterdam is not about me, but about freedom of speech in Europe. As Dwight D. Eisenhower, Europe's liberator from Nazism, once warned, freedom "must be daily earned and refreshed—else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die." Today in Europe, freedom is being neither earned nor refreshed.
A quote from Sam Fox, U.S. ambassador to Belgium, 8 June 2007, leaked by Wikileaks and published by De Standaard:
"We note, however, that no one ever went broke betting on the ability of Belgian politicians to eat their own words when it comes to choosing a ministerial seat."
