US TO ........Withdraw from UNESCO due to 'Anti-Israel Bias'

Trump Administration Announces it Will Withdraw from UNESCO due to 'Anti-Israel Bias'

THE UNITED STATES may pull out of UNESCO next year!

According to an official statement released by the State Department: "This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO.”

Fireinthebone gathered that the Trump administration is not happy with the anti-Israel bias at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) among other issues. 

Although this may appear like a major change in world politics, as USA Today notes, it is actually mostly symbolic since the U.S. has not actually funded UNESCO since 2011, after the organization voted to include Palestine.

The history of the U.S.’s involvement with UNESCO has been somewhat tenuous for several decades now. President Reagan withdrew the U.S. from the organization in 1984, but then President George W. Bush brought the U.S. back into the organization in 2002. Funding to UNESCO from the U.S. was cut off under the Obama administration.

A statement from Irina Bokova, the director general of UNESCO said: “At the time when conflicts continue to tear apart societies across the world, it is deeply regrettable for the United States to withdraw from the United Nations agency promoting education for peace and protecting culture under attack.”
