 Cairo Agreement between Lebanon and PLO 1969
This situation was recognized quasi-formally in the Cairo Agreement of 1969, masterminded by Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, in which the Palestinians, organized by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), were allowed special military and political privileges in Lebanon.

Although the Cairo Agreement was officially canceled in 1987, Lebanon has in actuality been unable to reduce the presence of the armed PLO terrorists who continue to run the refugee camps as their own independent entities.

Members of the OIC passed the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam on August 5, 1990.
Though, in fact, the Cairo Declaration appears as Pakistan's best, and perhaps only, chance to justify its anti-blasphemy provisions under an extra-territorial covenant, it is important to recognize that the Declaration itself came well after the issuance of the anti-blasphemy provisions.
Indeed, a retroactive attempt at reconciling legal persecution of religious minorities with the precepts of a fledgling regional instrument not endorsed by the majority of the world *79 is but a contradictory and perfunctory attempt at saving Pakistan's once leading commitment to religious freedom while still advocating a debilitating, strictly Shari'a-based legal system.
