Rashad Hussain is America’s Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. You didn’t know the U.S. had an envoy to that special group which already dominates the United Nations? Well, it does.

Hussain will be in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on June 18-19 for the OIC’s Annual Meeting of their foreign ministers. The press release sent out by the State Department was vague on the specifics: “The ministerial will cover a range of issues involving the Muslim world and the OIC’s continuing efforts to work with international partners to address a number of global challenges.”

On an OIC website addressing the upcoming OIC foreign ministers gathering, the first issue of concern to be discussed at the meeting is “the Cause of ‘Palestine’ and the Middle East.”

Here’s guessing the esteemed ministers will not be addressing the challenge presented by Islamists kidnapping three innocent Israeli teenagers. Maybe that’s too much to hope for, but will they discuss the nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by different Islamist genocidal terrorists?

Is it too much to hope that at least one of those issues is on the OIC’s agenda, especially as the United States has its own envoy to the body?

It sure looks that way.
