I would like to hear from locals of OIC countries if they support, Increase in trade, cross countries roads, and may be down the road a single economy.


What's the validity of this article? The OIC has no economic relevance - it is not an economic or trade bloc in any sense of the word and the article make! Student7 (talk) 00:42, 11 April 2010 (UTC) no claim that it is. Having an article such as this is non-neutral - pushing a view that trade should be based on cultural blocs - and original research - as a form of artificial synthesis.

This reflects real life. The OIC operates as a collective sometimes, a caliphate-in-waiting. They execute foreign policy in sync. For example, the proposal to "promote Freedom of Religion", a masked attempt to throttle Freedom of Speech, originated here. Under their "Freedom" of Religion, anyone attempting to proselytize (meaning Christians, since they are the only other religion that does) would be subject to horrible punishment, not only within the OIC, which is often true already, but within all members of the United Nations. An invidious proposal which was nearly considered BTW. This is just one initiative.
They also sit back and let other nations pull their irons out of the fire in Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran. They (deliberately and collectively) do nothing unless their own borders are threatened. Student7 (talk) 00:42, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
