UNESCO grants full membership to Palestine

The U.N. cultural and educational agency (UNHESCO) voted Monday to accept the Palestinian mission as a full member, triggering the United States to withhold $60 million. The U.S. funds about 22 percent of UNESCO’s budget, or roughly $80 million annually.

“We are not going to be able to continue contributing to the budget,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said. “Palestinian membership as a state in UNESCO triggers longstanding legislative restrictions which will compel the United States to refrain from making contributions to UNESCO.”

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization voted 107-14 with 52 abstentions granting Palestinians full membership in the organization. The U.S. voted against the nomination. Eighty-one votes of the 173 UNESCO members were needed for full membership to be approved.

Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO Nimrod Barkan told Reuters that the vote is a tragedy.

  1. OBAMA=MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD= destruction of the United States of America and the State of Israel.

    We must not and cannot allow this to happen. Time to vote ’em out Presidential 2012 in a Democratic PRIMARY! In America, we have noone to vote for now….This President and his cadre of special agenda anti American radicals have in 3 years have truly completed GW Bushes’ planned destruction of America.

    I may be 59 years old, but I would rather die as a warrior defending Israel’s right to exist than live in a country surrounded by ignorant, ill informed, and irrational limousine liberals! Can’t stand it. A curse on the so called UN and its money sucking anti Jewish an anti white stupid gang of thugs and thieves, operating under the disguise of ‘charity’, with “diplomatic immunity” no less….
