Between December 12 & 14, 2011, the OIC, Department of State and others met in Washington to find ways of implementing HRC Res. 16/18. From the available evidence, they appear to have settled on a new enforcement model, linked to "consequences" .If this new model had been in place a year ago, Pastors Jones & Sapp would be sued for civil liability and persecuted for trying and burning a Qur'an , based on the assertion that Pakistani Muslims rioted, causing death and destruction, as a result of their book burning. The fact that the riots resulted from inflammatory sermons at Jumah Salat probably would not have saved the Pastors from legal expenses and penalties. The intention is to impose self censorship by implementing a heckler's veto. If we expose Islam and they don't like it, Muslims can riot and blame us for their actions, and the government can impose fines, costs, and imprisonment.
