Nikki Haley isn’t going to be U.N. ambassador for much longer but on her way out she made a move that is going to make a lot of Americans happy. For years now, the United Nations has displayed a despicable bias against Israel. Haley has shown a commitment to changing that and the U.S. has now pulled out of one of the most out of control U.N. agencies.
From Fox News:
Nikki Haley, the exiting U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, issued a harsh assessment of UNESCO on Tuesday, one day after the United States and Israel officially quit the U.N. agency, alleging an anti-Israel bias.
The Trump administration filed its notice to withdraw in October 2017 from UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), and the administration of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu followed suit.
Paris-based UNESCO, which supports various educational and cultural projects around the world, has been denounced by critics for criticizing Israel’s occupation of east Jerusalem, naming ancient Jewish sites as Palestinian heritage sites and granting full membership to Palestine in 2011.
Israeli U.N. envoy Danny Danon said Tuesday that his country “will not be a member of an organization whose goal is to deliberately act against us, and that has become a tool manipulated by Israel’s enemies.
The United Nations has really become a waste of time and anything we can do to make it better or any positive messages we can send certainly can’t hurt.
