The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is an apolitical UN body whose goal is the promotion of peace through preserving and educating the world about historically important cultural sites.
The United States has formally withdrawn its membership of The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the UN’s body which helps to preserve and educate young generations about important cultural heritage sites and artefacts throughout the world.
The USA stopped funding UNESCO’s cultural initiatives in 2011, after UNESCO admitted Palestine as a member. This marks the second time that the US has withdrawn from the body. The first US withdrawal came in 1983 when the Reagan administration cited an ‘anti-western’ and ‘anti-Israel’ bias in the group.
Tel Aviv has issued a statement saying that along with the USA, it will withdraw its membership from (UNESCO).
These latest moves indicate the close relationship between the leadership in Washington and Tel Aviv. Israel has long been a lone voice of criticism in respect of the JCPOA (aka the Iran nuclear deal).
Many expect that after joining with Israel in condemning the JCPOA, the USA may withdraw from the agreement against the wishes of China, Russia, Germany, France, Britain, and the EU as a whole, all of whom worked to secure the deal in 2015, along with Barack Obama’s White House.
The Israeli regime has also complained publicly that UNESCO recommended Israel remove its fortress like barricades from the Noble Sanctuary. This summer, Tel Aviv shut Muslim worshippers out of the Noble Sanctuary in a move that was widely condemned by Palestinian groups and the wider international community. The barricades have since been replaced by electronic espionage equipment.
During the Syrian genocide (2011-today), the IDF, supported by the US coalition forces and ISIS destroyed the six most important heritage sites, selling the undamaged artefacts to Jewish owned Museums worldwide. These War Crimes committed can be not explained nor excused. So the time had come to leave the UNESCO, to avoid extreme responsibility for the flagrant and extensive evil crimes committed!
