It is hard to think of an organization that has been more thoroughly infiltrated and taken over by Muslims at every level, than the United Nations. It has for decades been filled with such willing collaborators as Edward Mortimer, the former Chief Speech Writer and Senior Adviser, as he billed himself, to Kofi Annan — and for all I know, perhaps he’s still senior-advising and chief-speech-writing for that Innocent Abroad Ban Ki-Moon, especially when it comes to Muslim matters.
This infiltration can be seen everywhere, from the actual staffing of the U.N. secretariat, to the power of the Islamic bloc, which is the last sizable voting bloc left now that the Soviet bloc has dissolved. What should be the bloc of enlightened democracies has lost its way — not least because of the effect of the anti-Israel atmosphere with which the United Nations is suffused, and the atmosphere of apologetics for Islam with which it is also suffused. And then of course there are those Western countries whose elites are terrified of offending the aggressive and dangerous Muslims who are now living in their very midst, and about which they have not a clue as to what to do. At the United Nations, Islam, or the Organization of the Islamic Conference, whenever Israel or Darfur or anything to do with Islam comes up, effectively calls the tune.
Why, almost half the time of the U.N. and its succursales, such as that comic organization supposedly devoted to Human Rights in Geneva, is dedicated to the proposition that Mighty Israel, the vast Empire of Israel, is the single most important topic, and of course threat, in the world today. The Geneva Human Rights council is that one whose deliberations are sometimes interrupted by the voices of steady sanity of David Littman and Roy Brown, and a few others like them. But even there the Muslim delegates have so intimidated, with their aggression and their sheer craziness, so many of the others, even Western European delegates, that even the most intelligent representatives of Western Europe shrink from confrontation with the primitive representatives of primitive peoples, made primitive, it must be said, by Islam itself.
And on the East River, the usual inmates of bedlam try to outdo one another in paying obeisance to Muslim countries. Of course, if those Muslim countries had no oil, they would have nothing. And had they not had, more than a millennium ago, a certain number of Christians and Jews and Zoroastrians in their recently-conquered lands, they would surely not even be able to claim what little they can claim as “Islam’s contributions to civilization.” An ideology that is all-encompassing, that encourages the habit of mental submission, that restricts so severely the varieties of artistic expression, that discourages in every way the spirit of critical inquiry, that mistreats women and, most important of all, mistreats all non-Muslims but insists on loyalty only to Islam and to fellow members of the Umma — it is the adherents of this who dare now to demand even more.
The U.N. is now perilously in the position of the League of Nations. The League of Nations, or, as the French call it, La Societe des Nations (and society it was, with lots of elegant socializing) could do nothing about Fascism and Nazism. And even though the odd American veto can prevent the most egregious and absurd of resolutions passed by the Yesterday’s Men who are the current diplomats at the United Nations from so many of the now-threatened Infidel lands, the U.N. remains a corrupt and corrupting institution.
Fortunately, just in time, the Muslims have overplayed their hand, with too many attacks in too many places. Now the spectacle of violent mobs of keffiyehed Muslims in European cities has impressed upon many Europeans the notion that these Muslims in their midst, and their local fellow travelers, are a menace that will not go away. That realization is dawning. It is being helped along not so much by what non-Muslims have done or said, but in the main by what Muslims have done and said. And they will continue, in their violence and aggression and impossible demands, to alert the non-Infidel world to what they are and what they are doing. And so that Infidel world is slowly, as if out of a deep sleep, shaking its locks, and coming, fitfully and by slow degrees, awake.
