US to withdraw from UNESCO due to ‘anti-Israel bias’

The United States is withdrawing from UNESCO because of what the Trump administration said is a “continuing anti-Israel bias” from the education and science organization.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement Thursday the U.S. would be pulling out of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization by the end of the year.

“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,” Nauert said.

The State Department said it plans to “remain engaged” with the organization as a non-member.

    Maybe Yemen would like to take the UN in and provide for it. I am tired of seeing tax payer money used to support this useless organization.

    Lets see the UN won’t give the exclusive rights to the holy places of three different religion to one nation. The UN won’t bow down before the Israelis so they must be evil. The UN created Israel. It’s not a question of the UN respecting Israel but of Israel respecting the UN.

      Let’s see…the UN elects Saudi Arabia to the Women’s Rights Commission when they subjugate women by forcing them to have male guardians that control their lives from birth to death. The UN secretary-general honors the Syrian envoy with awards when the Syrian regime commits mass murder in Aleppo. The UN elects Egypt to the Human Rights Commission when the Egyptian security forces killed as many as 1,000 protesters during the Rabaa massacre. The U.S. supports 22% of the UN budget and 28% of the UN “peacekeeping” budget. It’s not a question of the U.S. support of the UN, but of the UN’s total disrespect of the U.S.

        You had better not look to close at Israels record. Also if you are worried about how we waste money look at the foreign aid we give Israel and they spy on us.

    GOOD!.. The next from which to withdraw is the UN and get the UN out of the United States. Rewrite the Iran-Contra deal to our advantage or end it. Do the same with NAFTA. We’re on a roll for the United States of America!!!!
