UNESCO Grants Palestine Full Membership. US Ends UNESCO Funding

I suspect that the Palestinians may try to employ protection of the World Heritage sites for their holy places.

 

Oct. 31 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. cut off funding for Unesco today after the United Nations’ cultural agency voted to admit Palestine as a member state.

The landslide vote by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization prompted the U.S. to cancel a planned $60 million payment, as required by U.S. law, said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

The Palestinian membership application for the Paris-based agency, which the U.S. lobbied against, was approved with 107 votes, with 14 against and 52 abstentions. Palestine becomes the 195th member state in the group best known for its designation of “world heritage” sites.
