Trump Made an Excellent Call on UNESCO by The Elephant's Child

President Trump has decided to withdraw the United States from UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). This is a good thing. UNESCO’s corruption is legendary, they are anti Israel, susceptible to Soviet influence and granted the Palestinian Authority full membership. National Review documented their anti-Israel bias.

In 2012, UNESCO declared the Church of the Nativity to be a World Heritage Site in Danger, ignoring the objections of the U.S., Israel, and the three churches that preside over it. That was a victory for the Palestinians, who claim Bethlehem as their own and say that Israel endangers the site. The next year, the organization’s executive board issued six condemnations of Israel (and honored Che Guevara, the Communist mercenary). It announced in 2016 that the Temple Mount had no connection to Judaism, referring to it only as the “Al-Aqsa Mosque”: The Wailing Wall became the “Buraq Plaza,” and Israel the “occupying power” in Jerusalem.

UNESCO’s stated mission is to promote peace and security, but in practice it is just another international institution giving shelter to the world’s ugliest ideas.

The President said he hoped they would reform so the U.S. could rejoin the organization, but that is unlikely.
