In the last few decades, under the leadership of Nazi war criminal Kurt Waldheim and later the corrupt (well, only many of his staff, only his son) puppet Kofi Annan, the U.N. has seen all blocs fall away: no Soviet bloc, and no Western bloc. No non-aligned bloc, or much of one. All blocs but one have gone: the Arab bloc, which in turn directs from within a larger Islamic bloc, and bribes others. And those others are not always from the sub-Saharan countries so famously bribed in the immediate aftermath of the Six-Day War, to break their relations and cut off the aid they had been receiving, from Israel.
All over the Secretariat, the members of the Islamintern International make their steady way. They need not all be Muslims. Think of Edward Mortimer, the head of Kofi Annan’s Office of Communications, his head speech-writer, and as he liked to call himself, a “Senior Adviser to Kofi Annan.” Take a look: read my “Tribute to Edward Mortimer” and find out how fond he was of the Ayatollah Khomeini and how unfond he is of Israel. “To quote Charles James Fox, this is quite the most glorious morning in the history of mankind” was how he began his report for English readers on the arrival of Khomeini, to a delirious welcome, in Tehran. Look also at his enthusiasm for Lonnie Brenner’s conspiracy-theory book about “Zionist” power — the Protocols never die, they are just modified to make them a little less obvious, a little more palatable. And certainly Edward Mortimer found them palatable.
Mr. Moon might have been different. He might, somehow, one felt, after all that has happened over the past few years, have started to sense that just possibly Israel was not some gigantic empire extending its tentacles while poor, tiny, helpless, peaceful Arabs cowered in fear. Perhaps, one thought, he would fire Mortimer (where is Mortimer?) and realize that the U.N. does not so much have a general problem but a specific problem, brought upon itself by it becoming a handmaiden of Arab Islam at a time when the entire Infidel world is, in fact, directly or indirectly, threatened by a revived sense of power (and the power that ten trillion dollars, the Muslim take from OPEC, can give you) on the part of Muslims worldwide. That revived sense of power is combined with the perceived ability to “invade” as immigrants, by the tens of millions, the Bilad al-kufr, or lands of the Infidels. And what’s more, those immigrants feel they should be offered every generous benefit those Infidels have created for their own population. And what’s more still, they believe they can settle deep within those lands and make demand after demand, behaving as outrageously as they can, showing as little loyalty as they can, unsettling Infidels as much as possible, and creating new expenses and new worries for the indigenous Infidels. And they are embarrassed, those Infidels, even apologetic, about daring to worry. They are embarrassed about daring to take the most minimal measures of self-defense, or daring to attempt to preserve their legal and political institutions intact, as well as their social arrangements and tolerances arrived at over time.
It is the entire U.N. that has been spending one-third or more of its time on the “Palestinian people” — a fictive construct with obvious political uses, by now so imbedded in the brains and on the tongues of so many that to walk back the cat with them, show them how the trick was performed, becomes a complicated matter. For they don’t want to know how they have been fooled. All that attention, all those resolutions corrupt those countries that, despite knowing better, allow themselves to take the easy path. They have their representatives, even from Italy and Denmark and the Czech Republic and Iceland, perfectly decent countries that know better, raise their hands again and again to denounce Israel and deny it, essentially, its legal, historic, and moral claims, and its right to defend itself. All of this will come back to haunt the others — those who were not the first victims of Jihad in the postwar world, as was Israel. But it will certainly not be overlooked, and not be forgotten, by Muslims working to remove all obstacles to the dominance, everywhere, of Islam, and the rule, by Muslims, everywhere.
Moon has shown himself to be incapable of resisting the current. He will be swept along, and so will the U.N., and so will all those who think that by appeasing the Arabs in their Lesser Jihad against Israel, or doing nothing against them in their Lesser Jihad in southern Sudan, or in Kashmir, or elsewhere, that their “grievances” will be limited, their “sense of being wronged” will be assuaged. But as long as anywhere Muslims are thwarted in their aims — and not merely over tiny Israel — their sense of world-entitlement, their sense of the obvious and permanent and natural, given-by-God superiority of Islam and of Muslims (and within Islam, the superiority of the Arabs over the non-Arab Muslims) will not merely remain, but gain in strength. For every victory, based on every concession by Infidels, does not sate, but whets the Muslim appetite. This lesson has to be learned.
Moon may be able to undo a little, if he can take the time to study up himself, and not listen only to the members of the Islamintern International who no doubt have endlessly repeated to him — was Rishmawi involved, the sly propagandist who had such an effect on Mary Robinson? — the Received Version of the “Palestinian people” and All That They’ve Suffered Over the Past Two Thousand Years.
But with this, he gives every sign of being — one more of the same.
