Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald holds up a magnifying glass to that most grandiose of dhimmi institutions, the United Nations:
The UN now certainly bears no resemblance to the organization that Eleanor Roosevelt, Rene Cassin, and others thought they were founding after World War II. The major impetus for its founding was the desire to avoid a repetition of what had just been experienced. Despite the best efforts of many people, what has happened in the last nearly four decades is a steady increase in the power not of the Soviet bloc, which has not existed for a decade, but of a bloc of Muslim Arab nations — roughly, the 22 members of the Arab League, together with a number of non-Arab states such as Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, that slavishly follow the Arab line — who now control the agenda of the UN and its constituent bodies.
Thus it is that 1/3 of the time of the UN is now devoted to that most pressing of problems, the mighty empire of Israel, that exists on 0.2% of the total land mass of the Arab states, and that is guilty of attempting to defend itself against a relentless Jihad. This monomaniacal attention to Israel means that there is far less attention paid to:
- Muslim genocides, from East Timor and the Moluccas and Ambon to southern Sudan;
- Muslim persecution of non-Muslims in many places, from northern Nigeria to Egypt (the Copts) to the Arab Peninsula (where Christians and Hindus among foreign workers are persecuted for daring to observe, in however minor a manner, the rituals of their own religions);
- Ongoing Muslim campaigns or religiously-inspired Jihads, against Jews everywhere, against Hindus in Kashmir, and against Hindu and Sikh and Christian civilians wherever they can be found, both in Pakistan and in Bangladesh;
- The destruction of the natural environment — since all environmental questions are potentially threatening to the Arabs, who wish for the world to remain a heavy user of fossil fuels;
- Nuclear proliferation among states that are run by despots and peopled by primitives who cannot be trusted — unlike, say, Israel or Australia, or South as opposed to North Korea — not to use them except in self-defense.
A series of American ambassadors have commented on the grotesque anti-Israel scenes in the General Assembly, and the lopsided and absurd votes. But what they have failed to notice is that this is not isolated, but part of the pro-Islamic policy of the UN It is not a matter only of the votes of diplomats, but of the personnel at every level, from the sinister philo-Khomeini, viciously anti-Israel Director of Communications in the office of the UN Secretary-General, Edward Mortimer (google “Edward Mortimer” and “jihadwatch” for previous discussions of this man, who should be made the target of investigations and, one hopes, will be seen not fit to work at the UN for both his raptures over Khomeini and the record of his endorsement of Lenny Brenner and the “Zionist-Nazi” conspiracy theory) to those who staff the UNRWA — some 13 of whom, one sees, were some time ago arrested by the solicitous, hyper-delicate, scrupulous Israelis, who are at long last, after the disastrous Gaza withdrawal, beginning to act with a minimum sense of what decency and self-defense require.
The UN did nothing, despite the superb work of Gaspar Biro, the Special Rapporteur for Southern Sudan, about the 2 million Christians and animists in the south who were killed by northern Arabs. It has done essentially nothing in Darfur — google “Darfur” and “jihadwatch” for previous predictions on this — because the Arab League is against anything being done. It wants the northern Arab Muslims to be allowed to empty out the Darfur region, so that the Arab Muslims — who are more “equal” than all other Muslims — will have that land (for it is land, not the people, who matter to the Muslim Arabs — just as they regard the “land” of Western Europe as belonging to them, by right, and not to the indigenous non-Muslims who built whatever civilization Western Europe possesses).
This new attitude of the Israelis is welcome, but it is hardly enough. One hopes that the United States will cease to think that its responsibilities to the non-Muslm world end with vetoing this or that unjust anti-Israel resolution. That is only a beginning. A sensible policy requires that the American government every day make efforts to promote among Infidel countries and peoples an understanding of how the UN has been infiltrated, and essentially commandeered, by the forces of Islam: the Islamintern, it might be called. And then to minimize the power, the respect, and the legitimacy still accorded to the UN, this most corrupt and corrupting of institutions. And finally, it must seek not to do the impossible — to truly reform this organization — but to treat it as it should be treated: as hopeless, useless, and irrelevant as was the League of Nations when confronted with the Nazi-Fascist attacks in Spain, Mussolini’s invasion of Abyssinia, and Nazi Germany’s annexation of the Saarland and re-militarization of the Rhineland.
The League, this Societe des Nations, failed completely, and it closed up shop. The UN has, over the past 30 years, failed almost completely and will continue to fail. Unlike the League of Nations, it will not be closed down. But it should be ignored or mocked and shown for what it is — so that the free Infidel nations can take adequate measures to emerge victorious in this contest to preserve their own identities against a Muslim world that cannot stand the success, or the superiority, of non-Muslims when Islam is, by their lights, supposed to dominate and rule everywhere, but instead has effectively allowed the worst and craziest elements not only to exist, but to prevail.
In order for Western Europe — and for Israel first — to save themselves, it should be obvious that those who do not believe in Western civilization and wish only to subjugate the non-Muslims among whom they live will have to be expelled back to the Dar al-Islam. And that can only take place with a clear understanding of what is going on: it is not, pace some, for the thousandth time, merely a “war on terror.” The UN is not the place for clarity or coherence on these matters. In 1950, or even 1960, or even 1965, this was not evident. Decent people could still thrill at the idea of the UN. But there is no excuse now for anyone to regard it with anything other than suspicion and contempt — and to see it, rightly, as an organ that promotes, by omission and commission, the furtherance of the world-wide Jihad in all of its local manifestations and larger goals.
