Central European University Side Event on the Rabat Plan of Action (RPA)

The 6 tests for "hate speech" includes an "imminence" provision  , which means  that saying something that "might" lead to violence is hate speech, even though the violence need not have taken place.  The OIC has had a huge input in putting this together, so they want to use it in the following way: if you criticize Islam, we will come after you. This means that your saying what you have a right to say is "inciting" violence (their violence against you). Therefore, criticizing Islam is "hate speech" and is therefore illegal.  So it's turning the definition on its head.
