The UN and Terrorism Eleven Years After 9/11



The UN and Terrorism Eleven Years After 9/11

The UN still has no definition of terrorism. The UN's Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC) has never named a single state sponsor of terrorism, individual terrorist or terrorist organization.


The UN has been unable to adopt a comprehensive convention against terrorism. The Organization of the Islamic Conference insists blowing up Israelis and Americans in the name of self-determination doesn't count. The Security Council serves as the conduit for Palestinian claims that terrorists are martyrs.
