OIC to declare a "memorial day" for massacres against Muslims

Creating policy via temper tantrum allows the west to forget about the more than 11,000 innocent people who have been murdered by Muslims since 9/11. From Today's Zaman:

Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) member countries plan to declare a day of memorial for massacres and genocide committed against Muslim communities in various countries throughout the 20th century.

On Friday, representatives of OIC youth organizations came together at ─░stanbul's Grand Cevahir Hotel for a meeting organized by the Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation (ICYF-DC) to discuss programs to create awareness of Muslim grievances over the past within the younger generation and foster solidarity among OIC members.

"OIC countries are being confronted by different Islamophobic groups that have developed a plethora of myths of so-called historic violence Muslim countries [perpetrated] against others. That is a conscious strategy to create an image of Muslim peoples as ruthless and Islam as a culture of violence.
