Philanthropist Kenneth S. Abramowitz has issued a call to “save western civilization from itself” by shutting down the United Nations, among other measures.

As part of a general effort to fight the false narratives and terminology propagated by the left wing, Abramowitz says that the UN should no longer be portrayed as an important advance for world peace. In fact, he states, it has been taken over by dictatorships and should be closed.

Abramowitz says that the rational citizens of the West must cease using the enemy's terms – like “Second Intifada” for the terror war unleashed against Israel in the wake of the Oslo Accords, or “occupation” and “West Bank” for the Jewish liberation of the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria.

Among the most noxious false narratives in the world today, Abramowitz identifies the description of Islam as “a religion of peace” when in fact its terror arms an only be defeated by military means; the belief that a “peace process” will placate Israel's Arab enemies when in fact, appeasement guarantees war – and the claim that the West suffers from irrational, racist “Islamophobia,” when in fact it simply exhibits “a normal, rational fear of Islamists – not Muslims.”

Abramowitz depicts the global struggle as one in which “rational centrists” in Western civilization are under attack from within – by leftists, as well as naïve isolationists – and from without – by Islamists and the United Nations.

Abramowitz is a co-founder of NGN Capital, a $450 million worldwide health venture capital fund. He sits on the board of American Friends of Likud, the Israel Independence Fund, ZOA, CAMERA, American Friends of Israel and the Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy.
