The mask (or should we say mosque) is off. The UN is, by and large, an islamic world body funded by the American taxpayer.

The UN is the largest Western funded non-governmental world body, whose main objective is to spread Islam and anti-semitism.

The largest world body at the UN is the OIC — the Organization of Islamic Cooperation — a religious and political organization comprised of 56 countries and the “Palestinian” Authority (considered a state). All 56 countries (plus the “Palestinian” terror statelet) vote as one, and their objective is to impose Islamic law (sharia) across the world.

Bat Ye’or explains here:

The OIC has a unique structure among nations and human societies. The Vatican and the various churches are de facto devoid of political power, even if they take part in politics, because in Christianity, as in Judaism, the religious and political functions have to be separated. Asian religions, too, do not represent systems that bring together religion, strategy, politics, and law within a single organizational structure.

Not only does the OIC enjoy unlimited power through the union and cohesion of all its bodies, but also to this it adds the infallibility conferred by religion. Bringing together 56 countries, including some of the richest in the world, it controls the lion’s share of global energy resources. The European Union (EU), far from anticipating the problems caused by such a concentration of power and investing in the diversification and autonomy of energy sources since 1973, acted to weaken America internationally in order to substitute for it the U.N., the OIC’s docile agent. In the hope of garnering a few crumbs of influence, the EU privileged a massive Muslim immigration into Europe, paid billions to the Mediterranean Union and Palestinian Authority, weakened the European states, undermined their unity, and wrapped itself in the flag of Palestinian justice, as though this would supply some protective system against the global jihad, which it endeavored to focus on Israel.

And now we see the UN morph into a mosque.

“Muslim Prayers Take Over UN General Assembly Area,” by Anne Bayefsky, Breitbart, 17 Feb 2016:


Muslim prayers on Fridays at the United Nations headquarters in New York have begun taking up a large area next to the General Assembly Hall, shunning a designated ecumenical prayer area.

There was no formal decision by the UN to host Muslim prayers. The space has simply been booked without further explanation.

Muslim prayers at the UN have been operating for some time, though UN staffers are tight-lipped about when they began and who started them.

There is an ecumenical “meditation room” – without religious markings – that is continually open to the public and adherents of any faith. A plaque outside explains that the room was “personally planned and supervised in every detail” by former UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold in 1957. Hammarskjold’s aim was to create “a place where the doors may be open to the infinite lands of thought and prayer. People of many faiths will meet here…[I]t is dedicated to the God whom man worships under many names and in many forms.”

Prior to recent renovations, Muslim prayers had used a remote venue on a floor above the library.

Today, one finds dozens of prayer rugs permanently set aside for use every Friday in the General Assembly building. The space is booked – the UN won’t say by whom – from 11:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and unavailable for anything else.

Muslim prayers are now so popular that they spill into the path of public tours, with upwards of hundreds of shoes lining the halls.

By contrast, Christians, Jews, Hindus, and members of other faiths do not hold their regular services at the UN.

Evidently, just one religion finds the ecumenical room insufficient for its purposes. This despite a UN Charter that promises to reaffirm “equal rights,” and to promote “respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to religion.” Not to mention the host country’s commitment to the separation of church and state.

American taxpayers recently contributed half a billion dollars to renovate the UN. Little do Americans know that their money funded space for Friday Muslim prayer services.

The “Capital Master Plan” renovations, which ran for seven years until mid-2015, cost Americans $488 million, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). With our open wallet, the UN merrily went $379 million over budget, according to the UN — and at least $430 million over budget, according to the GAO.

American dollars didn’t just help renovate the space appropriated for weekly Muslim prayers. They also helped carve out an “East Lounge” that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called “perfect for behind-the-scenes negotiations.” The decorations were donated by Qatar in 2013.

Qatar paid only about $4 million as its mandatory assessed contribution to the Capital Master Plan, and then added a bit for the following East Lounge touches: black and gold embroidered couches, chairs, pillows, and engraved tables, with six gold-colored ornaments reminiscent of minarets. Or, as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon put it: “I am especially grateful that this lounge reflects Qatari culture.” (Among other things, Qatar is known to bankroll terrorist organizations like Hamas.)

The UN donations website claims that there was a renovation “policy” developed to govern spaces in the building that were “available for adoption” – but the policy is mysteriously unavailable. Perhaps it is the same policy that has resulted in the obscene repositioning of the UN’s revisionist “Palestine” exhibit next door to the Holocaust exhibit.

UN indoctrination isn’t subtle, and it isn’t cheap. With the Organization of Islamic Cooperation having colonized the place, perhaps it is about time somebody asked those wanting to be the next American president why we are paying for it.

  • spacearcadian

    Ok, it´s true that our politicians, the UN, your elites have already decided that the West will belong to Islam and muslims, but don´t worry, you must just comply, eat halal, pay the jiza, give one of your women to muslims, do not criticize mohammad, etc… and you will be able to live generally peaceful lifes. But sorry, rapes, beatings and occasional massacres are non negotiable

    • there is no peaceful life ever with moslems around.

      • Owen_Morgan

        No, because even if someone thinks he is a “good” muslim, it’s a cast-iron bet that some other muslim doesn’t agree with him (and has a fully loaded AK47, with which to settle the argument).

        As for being female and hoping for a peaceful life, with muslims around – not a chance.

    • Debbie Pineau

      That is not going to happen, there will be civil war or all out war before that happens.

      • gabwin

        Yes. Fortunately, armed Americans are not so easily subdued. We can expect “gun-free” cities to be controlled by armed muslims fairly soon though.

    • roger

      This is coming, unless there is some massive unexpected intervention.

  • JSebastian

    We must expel the UN and arrest its members for conspiracy against the US….

    • Ron Cole

      May we throw in the wh bath house C∅rteasàn$?

  • Ichabod Crain

    I would love to sneak around and swoop up all those shoes when nobody is looking and make off with them. Imagine the consternation when these Muslims come out from their prayers and find their shoes gone?

    • An instant thought for all of us. However a swift kick in those bottoms is better.

    • spacearcadian

      You will be prosecuted because of islamophobia, discrimination, hate crime, you will be fired from your job, any muslim will have the right to strike your neck wherever they find you because you provoked them… don´t dare to do it if you know what is good for you

      • moose

        That’s the problem we face today in the US and around the world…nobody has the backbone or the BALLS to call these douche bags out !! A good old fashioned ass whipping is what they all should receive….

      • Debbie Pineau

        It would be better to be dead than a slave.

        • gabwin

          It would be better to kill all the muslims than be a slave.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Just kill the ones who attack.

            It’s coming to that point.

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          Better to be a slave with a gun and lots of ammo.

    • Mischief Maker in the Land

      Pork Scratchings crushed make a dust that falls in shoes.

      • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

        Pedipig powder.

    • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

      if you left behind only the left shoes, muslims being muslims, they might solve the problem by cutting off their now superfluous right feet, (olllore wuckbah!)

    • moose

      I’d rather put bacon slices in every shoe….and leave their shoes sit where they sit…

  • And what is in those prayers 5x/day? Submission of or death to unbelievers.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Precisely, as well as showing the world that no one has the courage to challenge islam, even in the u.n on american soil. America needs a leader, not a dhimmi.

  • Fred

    Didn’t Rudy Giuliani want to get rid of the UN in New York because they weren’t paying parking tickets. Diplomatic immunity is another crock.

    Throw the UN and all the diplomats out of NY.

    Sell the land to a developer and make a fortune

    • PD MacGuire

      Maybe this is why Donald Trump is running…

      • Dr. Doomsday

        I doubt its that sophisticated..

    • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

      just don’t let them build a mosque.

      • Fred

        Darn right

      • Jim Walters

        who needs a Mosque if they simply highjack any building or street for the same purpose?

        • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

          Yes, that’s a point well made. Still, it would be nice to deny the buggers another one all the same. If you google the London one there’s just something repulsive about it.
          Like a giant cockroach nest, teeming with dress wearing bearded welfare scroungers strutting around looking down on the kuffar as they work to support their new “masters”, the backward bigotted islamic throwbacks.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Why don’t Brits stand up and counter protest – get a LARGE crowd and sing British songs to infuriate the azz lifters???

          • NoMoreIslam

            What is wrong the use of high caliber machine gun? What is wrong with this idea?

        • Katie

          Building mosques is what they do. It’s a symbol. They built the golden dome over judaisms holiest site, Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem.

        • NoMoreIslam

          Burn the motherfucker

        • jo

          Hi Jim,

          Muslims love Jesus pbuh,

          Matthew 26:39, He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”

          Most muslims pray by bowed face to the ground same as Jesus pbuh,

      • NoMoreIslam

        It always starts with -” This is just a prayer room”- after a while when people had been condition to this permanent fixture, we must have a mosque as prayer room bursting at the seem. Here you go another shithall been pushed onto unsuspecting souls. Should not be allowed any kind of moslemanian crap.

  • PD MacGuire

    There is a perfectly good non-denominational chapel in the UN headquarters. This needs to stop. We need to object to our tax dollars being used illegally to support this activity.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Objection has been tried frequently on no end of things, it is useless without action.

      • moose

        Then they should KEEP OBJECTIONS coming and start to put some teeth into their objections…

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Precisely, words without actions are a waste of breath. Do not make promises, observation, action then explanation are one way to go.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    All civilized nations should remove there presence from the u.n a it is an islamic society to dominate and impose shari’a on the world. How America, Russia, India, China and other nations can participate and finance such stupidity is a disgrace to humanity.

  • Need to move the whole Kit and kaboodle to Dubai where they can live happily ever after and let the Saudi Royal Family fund it.

    • gabwin

      Not Dubai, but Syria or Afghanistan.

  • Per Madsen

    A Saudi Arabian is in charge of human rights at the UN. I really hope Trump makes them move to Tehran.

    • Dorrie

      Trump has all the obvious earmarks of a Sociopath. Don’t count on him for ANYTHING.

      • drummie

        Have you looked at Obama lately? He is a lying racist coward narcissist, ie a sociopath

        • Richard

          True about Obama, but we really, really deserve to trade up. If Trump runs independent he will split the votes needed to defeat Hillary. And it will be Hillary. If Sanders is in the lead as November nears look for him to die of “natural” causes. Just like so many who oppose the Clintons have.

          • Dorrie

            Trump is already splitting the party, just as Bill Clinton wanted him to do when he talked him into running, and just like Ross Perot did in ’92 for Slick Willy. Trump is NOT a conservative on ANY level, but Satan used him to tickle the ears of the weak and emotional with his big thing on building a wall.

            Most of the other candidates would ALSO finish the fence/wall, but when Trump came out so vehemently about it, that’s all it took for those who love to worship, to bow down before him – NOT unlike those who were so worshipful of Obama. But it’s VERY important to look at Trump’s history, and his CHARACTER, because that is what really counts.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Time to separate conservative from Republican.

            Would you rather have an imperfect conservative Republican or a perfect Socialist/Progressive running the US.

            Do you think the US can survive Obama 3.0???

            Nice guys finish last – see McCain and Romney.

            You can’t make nice with savages. You need to kill a bunch of them – enough so the remainder kiss your boots.

        • Obama is a puppet of the muslem brotherhood and a traitor to the USA.
          He proves it every time he opens his mouth.

        • Dorrie

          Indeed he is, I’m just saying, Trump is no better.

      • Katie

        Right. If your candidate wins, that arrogant, deceitful, lying bitch, this country will no longer be recognizable. She’ll make sure to stack future voting blocks by allowing Syrian refugees into this country and the good old US will become like Europe.

    • sony_dc

      What a great idea! I wonder how many diplomats will actually continue going to the UN if they moved it to Tehran or Saudi Arabia.

    • Ron Cole

      How about south Chicago?
      We could teach the natives they are good on the barbie.

  • michaelofsydney

    Whilst this revelation is truly disgraceful, I am hardly surprised. I have always considered the UN as a vehicle for the anti-Christ and so it has unashamedly begun to show it’s true colours. I recall attempting to camp outside the UN in a one man protest in 1981 and being threatened with arrest and violence, so opted to get arrested out front of Ronnie’s White House (if I had to be arrested in the land of ‘free speech’). There were no issues at the WH, and I only left after a week because I was bored. The UN is an insult to the USA and to the whole world.Kick them out

  • Lia

    Why does the USA not defund the UN? The money saved would help (somewhat) with the USA’s immense debt and the building could be rented out to any interested groups at market-related prices.

  • itchy

    Just like the Leage of Nations after World War 1, The u.n cause more trouble than there worth. Most parroticains just want to have there name etched in the anals of history on the u.n wall of shame. P$ss them off now and go it alone

  • Melo Gardener

    Muslim prayers in the UN, Muslim call to prayer in the American Universities and we know that Christian call to prayer would be beaten and screamed down…I have said for 25 Years the UN is Muslim run and controlled because the UN never responds to violent slaughter and beheadings by muslims/Islam in the m world by millions…they are not a world organization, they are a muslim organization out to take over the world with Islamist Sharia! Down on the UN…down on all calls to prayer or prayer rooms of Islam in all government facilties and public domains…screw Sharia!!!!

    • moose

      Melo. my sainted mother was screaming about how the US should tear down the UN when I was just a boy!! I’m now pushing 80 and STILL nothing has been done and things have gotten worse…..yet the arses in power and in their respective “bubbles” cant understand why Trump has such a huge following….My mom would be spinning in her grave if she knew that a SOCIALIST is running for PREZ in this great country of ours…..I feel that TRUMP is our last hope we have left….short of marching on DC with torches and pitchforks!!

  • thefounderswereright

    DE fund the U.N. and and close the U.N. building, tell the Muslims to build it in Iran.

  • moose

    People have been bitching about the amount of money we pay for the presence of the UN in NYC…..we should have thrown them out YEARS ago even before Giuliani was mayor…traffic tickets as noted below are only the very small tip of the iceberg…Get the US the hell out of the UN and sell that building and the property it sits on…

  • Debbie Pineau

    Disgusting that western governments are bowing down to the satanist god, to islam and sharia.

    • moose

      Debbie have you seen the youtube video about what’s going on in France –in the town of Calasis? I’ll post the link as soon as i find it….PLS view it and send it to all who value their freedom…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKAQX74yRyc&feature=youtu.be

        Typical socialist government that wont defend its own people……Poor bloody people having to put up with mad dogs. Gutless police and authorities

  • sony_dc

    How do we STOP this madness?!?! I can’t believe that so many Americans are blind to this evil, and continue to stay silent.

  • Ektor

    Our next Prez, if he is decent, should take the US out of the UN altogether.
    There is no reason we should be funding this Islamic based Communist organization which wants to control our country and tell its citizens what they can and cannot do. The UN is just another Marxist liberal organization designed to not keep the peace, but destroy America…in line with Obama’s objectives.

  • Patriotic Dave

    Again, Pamela Geller tells us the hidden truth that nobody seems to want to talk about regarding the successful efforts to make the UN Sharia compliant! Guess it wouldn’t be politically correct if the nonMuslim countries form an Anti-terrorism Coalition and make it a point to actually utilize the Ecumenical Prayer Chapel once a month to pray for peace and for global victims of terrorism? It would be a wonderful thing!
    People on Atlas Shrugged and those concerned and aware about the efforts of creeping Sharia to run the UN globally while they take over locally need to get involved in politics in 2016 especially in the USA! Pamela Geller has the goods on Donald Trump and I truly hope the Cruz Campaign would allow her to share her knowledge of The Donald who claims to have a lot of money much of which is really investment credits/outstanding loans from Islamic sources and mortgaged real estate in Islamic countries making him amenable to Islamic influence!
    Fact is in her great book “Stop the Islamization of America” Pamela Geller points out that The Donald really didn’t do much in NYC to stop the effort to put a mosque over the victims of 9/11 until it become obvious the Muslims weren’t going to share in any development opportunities with him! With friends like that, the anti-Sharia effort literally can’t afford to fight its enemies!
    We need a President who is committed to our national interest first and foremost with a proven track record of deeds not just recent hyperbole! Sen Ted Cruz of TX is the one with the best track record who is viable! Knowledgeable Americans need to vote at least but attend Precinct Conventions and volunteer to be delegates at State Conventions! Sad reality is that a lot of the establishment Republicans who are now making overtures to Trump supporters have their fingers in the Islamic pocket just like The Donald! Locally, the county GOP establishments in all too many areas of the USA cow to pressure to support Sharia compliance!

    What five times a day prayers (especially Friday prayers) should really represent, not in the UN but in our countries, is a convenient opportunity for immigration to attend to conduct immigration checks, grab illegals and boot ’em out.

    The OIC IS THE BODY(in the un) THAT DECIDES WHICH REFUGEES (ALWAYS ISLAMIC) GO TO THE VARIOUS COUNTRIES THAT TAKE IN “REFUGEES”. THAT’S WHY XIAN OR OTHERS ARE NEVER SENT. IT SEEMS THAT ONLY PRIVATELY CAN XIANS AND OTHERS COME.

  • Daniel Rubio

    Filthy muslims. They soil and spoil everything they touch. Now it’s the U.N.’s turn, although in truth the U.N. became a muslim-third-world enclave since the 1970´s. The U.N. must be disbanded, it’s building taken over by Trump in order to gentrify it, converting it to high-class condos with a nice view of the East River. The muslim and third-world parasites disguised as diplomats that fill-up its corridors with stinking shoes and assorted garbage must be moved over to Bangladesh, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Malmo or any other muslim “paradise”. There’s plenty of space in the arab hell-holes to host this club of incompetent muslims, antisemites, lefties and America-bashers.
