PLO member Saeb Erekat has threatened that if Israel approves additional building in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, as has been rumored for next week, then the PLO will join 63 international organizations, including the International Criminal Court.

He said "We condemn this strongly and we would consider it as blowing up the peace process."

It has been pointed out that the ICC is not likely to want to rule on Jews building houses. Also, it appears that the PLO already had accepted the jurisdiction of the court in 2009, and its 2012 status as a non-voting member of the UN might mean that Erekat's main threat is baseless - it is already there.

I am wondering, however, what the other 62 organizations might be?

Well, it just so happens that Maldives is a member of exactly 63 international organizations. That list is probably a good approximation of the ones Erekat is referring to. Obviously the South Asia-specific organizations are not likely to be on Erekat's list, but the list does us an idea of what this threat actually is.

Get ready to tremble in fear:

50 Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC)
51 International Civil Aviation Organization (lCAO)
52 United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
53 Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)
54 United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF)
55 Universal Postal Union (UPU)
56 International Maritime Organization (lMO)
57 International Telecommunications Union (ITU)
58 World Health Organization (WHO)
59 United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
60 United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)
61 United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
62 United Nations (UN)
63 Colombo Plan

PLO membership in most of these institutions is not likely to cause great concern (and it is already member of some.) When they try to politicize some of these - as they did with UNESCO - it could cause a backlash against them from Western countries who do not want to see these organizations turned into circuses.
