Why is America underwriting a quarter of their budget? It’s the global arm of the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) – a universal caliphate.
The OIC represents 56 countries plus the “Palestinian” Authority. It claims also to represent Muslim immigrants — the “Diaspora” — in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. It is pan-Islamic: It seeks to unify and lead the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims. In a manual first published in 2001, “Strategy of Islamic Cultural Action in the West,” the OIC asserts that “Muslim immigrant communities in Europe are part of the Islamic nation.”
The OIC, Bat Ye’or argues, is nothing less than a “would-be, universal caliphate.” It might look different from the caliphates of the Ottomans, Fatimids, and Abbasids. It might resemble, instead, a thoroughly modern trans-national bureaucracy. But, already, the OIC exercises significant power through the United Nations, and through the European Union, which has been eager to accommodate the OIC while simultaneously endowing the U.N. with increasing authority for global governance. Among the other organizations that Ye’or says are doing the OIC’s bidding are the U.N. Alliance of Civilizations, the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, and the European Parliamentary Association for Euro-Arab Cooperation (PAEAC).
In the eyes of OIC officials, no problem in the contemporary world is more urgent than “Islamophobia,” which it calls “a crime against humanity” that the U.N. and the EU must officially outlaw. Even discussing why so much terrorism is carried out in the name of Islam is to be forbidden. The OIC insists, too, that international bodies ban “defamation of religion,” by which it means criticism of anything Islamic. Defamation of Judaism, Christianity, Bahai, Hinduism, and even heterodox Muslim sects such as the Ahmadiyya is common within the borders of many OIC countries, a fact the OIC refuses to acknowledge.

Report: UN staff celebrate death of Israelis
UN WATCH, GENEVA, September 25, 2019:
A UN agency that runs schools and social services for Palestinians is facing calls to sack employees using social media to celebrate attacks on Israelis.
Facebook posts by UN staff have included photographs cheering knife and car ramming attacks, glorifying terrorists like Hamas bomb-maker Abdullah Barghouti, responsible for killing 67 Israelis, and a photograph of Adolf Hitler with a caption describing the Nazi tyrant as a humanitarian.
The latest report documenting the social media posts of ten staffers brings the total to 100 UN employees who have been exposed in recent years by UN Watch, a Geneva-based watchdog, for publishing their support for attacking Israelis, and for other forms of terrorism and antisemitic incitement.

UN Watch has called on the body, the United Nations relief and works agency (UNRWA), to dismiss those who have posted the hate-filled messages.
Hillel Neuer, the director of UN Watch, said incitement to hatred, particularly by teachers, would only contribute to violence in the Middle East. He called on the UN to demonstrate that it would not turn a blind eye to racism among its staff.
“Governments that fund UNRWA, such as the UK, Germany and Canada, would not tolerate this behavior in its own schools,” he said. “Why are Palestinian children less deserving of their protection?”
“We have previously submitted screen shots of postings by 90 other UN staffers, including by teachers, advocating the stabbing of Jews, and we don’t know what action is being taken against them. If the donor states cannot confirm which, if any, teachers of hate have been fired, then they are complicit.”
Total of 100 UNRWA Teachers & Staffers Now Exposed for Hate
Today’s new report follows several earlier reports published by UN Watch from 2015 to 2017 exposing 90 UNRWA staff Facebook pages containing jihadi incitement and antisemitism (see, e.g., here, here, here, here and here).
“Despite our prior identification of UNRWA teachers who endorse Hitler and call for killing Jews,” said Neuer, “I am not aware of a single UNRWA teacher who has been fired as a result. When racist and antisemitic statements by teachers in other countries were exposed, the offending teacher was immediately fired. Why is it that an ostensibly neutral UN agency that claims to teach tolerance continues to employ terrorist-supporting and antisemitic staff?”
The report was released ahead of the upcoming General Assembly vote on whether to renew UNRWA’s mandate. Although UNRWA was intended to be a temporary agency when it was established by General Assembly resolution 302(IV), its mandate has been continuously renewed every three years.
Unlike, the UNHCR, the UN refugee agency that deals with the rest of the world’s refugees, UNRWA is not mandated to find a permanent solution for the so-called Palestinian refugees. This leads to the anomaly where 2.2 million Palestinians in Jordan, most of whom have Jordanian citizenship according to UNRWA, are still classified by UNRWA as refugees.
As Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis acknowledged last year, UNRWA now “has become part of the problem.”
UNRWA says that it conducts mandatory neutrality training.
“Yet when we find a Facebook post by a senior UNRWA official with a picture of a child wearing a PFLP headband and holding a rifle, with a caption calling to ‘teach your children to pull out their guns’, I have to question whether UNRWA is really taking this issue seriously,” said Neuer.
“Even more troubling is all of the incitement and antisemitism that we don’t find on Facebook because of privacy settings or other reasons, but which is being conveyed to children in the classroom. I call on all donors—the EU, UK, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, Norway, France, and the Netherlands—to demand accountability from UNRWA on this issue, just as many have done on UNRWA’s corruption scandal,” he added.
