How tight is the UNHCR with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation?

I really don’t know, but plan to be keeping an eye out for more news that might shed some light on my hunch that the OIC puts pressure on the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to keep Muslim migrants (“refugees”) headed to Western countries.

We know that the UNHCR is choosing our refugees (the UN tells the State Department which ones to take), and Canada’s as well, and is continually pressuring Australia, New Zealand, Japan and European countries to open their gates to the flood of Muslims coming out of Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

I suspect that the OIC tells the UN to jump, and the UN asks ‘how high?’ but we have no solid information about the role the OIC plays with refugee selection.

Here is a short story I’m posting just so we have it for future reference.  I don’t at this point see any great significance in it, but just don’t want to lose it.

Hot off the presses today from WAM (Emirates News Service):

JEDDAH, 22nd November, 2014 (WAM) — A joint Committee headed by Ambassador Fuad Al-Maznaee, Advisor to the Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, OIC, on Humanitarian Affairs, and Amin Awad, Director, Middle East and North Africa Bureau of the United Nations Refugee Agency, held its first meeting at the UNHCR headquarters in Geneva to discuss ways and means on enhancing areas of cooperation, particularly the implementation of the Ashgabat Declaration, adopted by the OIC Ministerial Conference on Refugees in the Muslim World held in 2012.

During the opening remarks, the two heads of delegations emphasized the importance of strengthening their partnership in areas of common interest, noting that refugees in OIC constitute 57% of the total refugees worldwide.

Both sides reiterated the strong commitment of the two organizations to address the protracted refugee issue in the Muslim World.

The main objective of the joint Committee’s discussion is to identify main areas of cooperation,and to work out a Plan of Action to implement the Ashgabat Declaration under the framework of the OIC-UNHCR Cooperation Agreement signed between the two organisations in 1988, according to an OIC statement.

This two days’ meeting comes as follow-up of the High-level meeting held between the OIC Secretary General Iyad Ameen Madani and the High Commissioner for refugees, Antonio Guterres, on 9 September 2014 at the OIC headquarters in Jeddah.

I began thinking about this question (how tight is the UNHCR with the OIC?) when I wrote my previous post about the ‘unaccompanied Muslim alien children’ spreading out around the world.

Burma again: Did he cry for Americans on 9/11?

Editors note:  Pay attention!  This is not some faraway problem—it will be yours in the West when they start pushing in a big way for the resettlement of Rohingya to your towns!

World Muslim leader Ihsanoglu and Hillary at the US State Department in 2012

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Turkish Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, who headed a delegation of Islamists to Burma (Myanmar) last week (here) reportedly cried for the Rohingya Muslims of Burma, or so he told the world media including the Associated Press (via the Washington Post).

I’m telling you I have watched this public relations campaign build over the last 6 years—they build a drumbeat of victimhood and the Muslims are NEVER anything but the victims!

It makes me want to scream!  The western media NEVER reports when the Rohingya instigate violence in Burma, or India, or Bangladesh or Malaysia!

Here is the WaPo today:

YANGON, Myanmar — The secretary general of the world’s largest bloc of Islamic countries said emotional visits with members of the long-persecuted Rohingya Muslim community — chased from their homes in Myanmar by Buddhist mobs and arsonists — brought him to tears.

“I’ve never had such a feeling,” Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said late Saturday, as he and other delegates from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation wrapped up a three-day tour to Myanmar that included talks with the president, government ministers, interfaith groups and U.N. agencies.

Never had such a feeling!  Never for the thousands upon thousands of innocent people killed in the name of Islam, never for the Christians slaughtered in Africa almost every Sunday, never for the innocent victims of 9/11?

Aung San Suu Kyi gets it!  (see our previous post here)

The Post (AP) ends with this:

Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi — who has said little in defense of the religious minority — declined to meet with the OIC delegation.

A woman with such power must really p***-off the OIC!

Endnote:  In 2009 we reported that the US State Department had linked Rohingya to terrorist groups operating in that part of the world, but lo-and-behold in 2012 (during Ms. Hillary’s reign) that link was no longer available at the State Department’s website.

This is rich! UAE calls on Buddhist Burma to treat Muslim Rohingya better

Hey here is an idea, maybe rather than shoving the minority Muslim population down the throats of the Burmese, the rich United Arab Emirates could welcome the Rohingya to the UAE—but, oops! the UAE doesn’t take refugees!

Monks protest against the Organization of Islamic Cooperation! Imagine if we had such brave people!

There would definitely be less tension in the whole world if we followed the Daniel Pipe’s plan of keeping Muslim refugees in their own “culture zones!”


WAM NEW YORK, 28th September 2013 (WAM)– The UAE has expressed concern over the acts of violence which target the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar, and demanded the international community encourage the government of Myanmar to carry out its duty to put an end to these acts which contradict the basic principles of human rights, as well as to help the Rohingya restore their rights as a Muslim Minority in Myanmar.

The UAE also re-affirmed that it will continue to provide humanitarian aid to the victims of violence in Myanmar and to defend the legitimate rights of the Muslim minority in the country.

This came in the UAE’s statement at the meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Contact Group on Rohingya, held in New York, USA, under the chairmanship of Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Secretary General of OIC, on the margins of the 68th United Nations General Assembly.

I think the OIC is still smarting from being banned by Burma.  They wanted to get into Burma (aka Myanmar) to supposedly inspect living conditions for Rohingya.  I expect they wanted-in to help agitate and stir up more tension.

Let’s all encourage those rich Muslim countries to do THEIR share by welcoming their fellow Muslims to their cities!

See our entire Rohingya Reports category (155 previous posts!).  US Resettlement contractors want more Rohingya to resettle in America.

(Another) boatload of Muslims apprehended in Indonesia. Could the OIC be paying for the migration?

Levy:   Hijra is immigration designed to subvert and subdue non-Muslim societies and pave the way for eventual, total Islamization.

It occurred to me the other day, when we learned that a 26-year-old Rohingya Muslim who had been reportedly on the run for 11 years “scraped together $12,000” to hire a trafficker to get him to Australia, to wonder where the heck does an indigent “refugee” get $12,000?   Most American 26-year-olds couldn’t “scrape” that amount of money together (except maybe as a drug dealer!).

Then I saw this story about one more illegal alien boatload of “refugees” being apprehended and it included Rohingya, Somalis and Iranians.  What might they have in common—they share the Religion of Peace!

What else might they have in common?  Perhaps a benefactor to gather them together, load them up and send them to Australia where they know they might get a “welcome” from a government (and a home with granny) in the process of destroying its demography and its sovereignty.

Could the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (based in Saudi Arabia) be funding al Hijra—the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration?  Just wondering!

Here is the story from Global Post late last week:

Indonesia’s navy detained 82 asylum seekers including scores of Muslim Rohingya from Myanmar when their boat ran aground as they headed to Australia, an immigration official said Friday.

The 51 Rohingya, 24 Iranians and seven Somalis had been heading from Sulawesi island, in the east of the country, to East Nusa Tenggara, one of the closest Indonesian provinces to Australia, he said.

An increasing number of Rohingya, described by the UN as one of the world’s most persecuted minorities, have been arriving in Indonesia as they flee Buddhist-Muslim violence which erupted in their home state of Rakhine last year.

“They were heading to Australia, as usual,” immigration official Muhammad Bakri told AFP.

The boat left from southwest Sulawesi but their boat ran aground nearby and they were picked up by a naval patrol, he said.

The migrants, including several children, were taken to the nearby city of Makassar where they were being registered and questioned by immigration officials.

Bakri said the Rohingya would be kept apart from other asylum seekers following an outbreak of violence at an immigration detention centre last week in which Rohingya killed eight Buddhists from Myanmar.

We told you about the killing of Buddhists here in four previous posts.

P.S.  I’ll be letting you know if US refugee contractors at this year’s State Department hearing aid the Hijra and ask for more Rohingya and Somalis to resettle in your cities as the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and others did last year, here.

Rohingya Muslims: Australia’s next big problem (and our’s too!)

They say they are trying to get to Australia, the US or Canada, even New Zealand—where they believe they will be “welcomed.”   (Sounds like they have already learned the refugee industry lingo!)

Tell me, when you read this story, does this ring true—how does a poor and downtrodden 26-year-old man (who has been on the run for 11 years already) “scrape together $12,000” to hire a people smuggler?   Something is fishy here—who is paying the advance guard?  Could it be the Saudi Arabia-based OIC? (See yesterday’s post).

Here is the story from The Australian:

TWO years ago the Indonesian office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees had fewer than 50 Rohingya asylum-seekers on its books. Today there are more than 800, and nearly all are trying to get to Australia.

“Some of my friends have gone to Australia already and after two or three years they get citizenship,” Feazel Ali tells The Australian. “Finally they can live in peace.”

Ali left Myanmar in 1994 and lived in Malaysia for 13 years before he, his wife and five children took a boat to Sumatra two months ago, hoping somehow to get a passage to Australia.

“Australians have pity for refugees, but actually anywhere that wants to accept us, I wouldn’t mind,” he says.

“I want to work. I want my children to have a high school education.”

Like many other asylum-seekers, he clings to the illusion that Australians would welcome his family, if only they knew his people’s plight. The reality is, as refugee officials say privately, no government wants the Rohingya, who are commonly described as among the most persecuted people in the world.   [The media doesn’t tell you that it isn’t because they are poor, it’s because they have a history of violence and connections to Islamic terror groups, aside from the fact that many believe they are simply illegal aliens who went Burma from Bangladesh initially.—ed]

Most of the dark-skinned Shia Muslim asylum-seekers who have reached Indonesiaare in immigration detention at Belawan, North Sumatra, or under UNHCR care in the community in nearby Medan.

Elsewhere in Indonesia they barely attracted notice until March 5, when men in the Belawan centre turned on 11 Burmese Buddhist fishermen and murdered eight of them.

The victims had been arrested for fishing illegally off Aceh last July and were vastly outnumbered by more than 100 Rohingyas.  [This is not helping the Rohingya image being crafted by the NGOs!—ed]

Festering camps:

Refused citizenship in their western Burma homeland, Rohingyas have long posed a huge refugee challenge to Bangladesh and Thailand, where more than 400,000 people live in festering border camps.


At least 130 Rohingyas have been detained in the past eight days trying to get to Australia – 95 of them in two boats that were also carrying Bangladeshis, Iranians and Iraqis.

Refugee officials say almost all the Rohingyas interviewed in Indonesia are trying to get to Australia, though most would be happy with a visa for Canada, the US or New Zealand – other countries they believe would be welcoming.

Mark my words!  Rohingya will be the next Somalis coming to a town near you!
