– Dr. Abdul Ruff Colachal
Modern fascist allies for a long time, USA and Israel have decided to synchronically leave UNESCO by just blaming its refusal to accept the Israeli crimes in Palestine as being right and hence pardonable.
Master USA did it first and then servant Israel the beneficiary from US capitalist-imperialism followed it. USA as its global policy promotes the Zionism interests globally, in particular West Asia, and fights those that oppose Israel’s occupational crimes in West Asia because it says its duty to defend the illegal regime imposed in Mideast East by UK and USA- allies of Judaism and foes of Islam. .
Therefore, American regime is eager to shield every crime Israel commits against humanity. USA, UK and Israel very systematically ignited violence in Palestine, split them into dangerous Fatah-Hamas factions that would make Israeli occupation fairly easy.
An expert in erratic rhetoric, US President has been, after his maiden visit to Israel soon after his assent to White House in surprise manner, talking in one tone with Israeli hawkish PM Netanyahu whose dirty palms are stained with Palestinian blood.
Apparently, Trump was expecting the Nobel Peace prize for this year as the new US President. Obama got its when he assumed office at White House and naturally Trump also thought the Nobel Peace committee would make it a new rule to bestow upon the new President of USA the prestigious Nobel prize. He is terribly mistaken. The Nobel committee found another person for the coveted medal.
Trump waited for the announcement of Nobel peace prize to declare his agenda and now that he is out of the minds of the award deciders, he has quickly announced two major decisions to appease Zionist criminal state that he considers a part of US imperialist empire’” One, withdrawal from Unesco and two criticizing the Western deal with Iran on nuclear issue.
In these two major declarations, Trump has made Israel and its fanatic leader Netanyahu satisfied and obviously annoyed its traditional European allies. . In promoting the fascist interests of Israel, Trump has in fact replied to Netanyahu’s accusation against him that he has thrown Israel under the fast moving bus.
Obviously disappointed also by the latest developments in Mideast, including the recognition of UN as a defacto member, UNESCO accepting Palestine as its member and the rights of Palestine to sue the Israeli leaders at Intentional Courts of justice, and UNESCO recognition of Hebron as Palestinian heritage site, USA withdrew from UNESCO, citing ‘continuing anti-Israel bias’. Israel followed the US lead.
In effect, with the announcements Trump has now declared he is trying to assure Israel that he indeed has thrown his own America under the bus in order to save Israeli criminal rulers.
There has been no immediate comment from the US foreign minister or government. Earlier, Washington officials told AP that the United States is withdrawing from UNESCO “after repeated criticism: of resolutions that the Trump government perceived as anti-Israeli.
Israel rages after UNESCO describes Hebron as Palestinian heritage site
The US State Department confirmed the country is officially withdrawing from UNESCO, the UN’s cultural body it helped found in 1945, citing “anti-Israeli bias” and the need for reform. The move will take effect on December 31, the US announced. “This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects US concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO.” Washington’s State Department said the USA will remain in the UNESCO as a non-member observer state in order to contribute US views, perspectives and expertise.
UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova said she received official notification from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, adding she expressed “profound regret at the decision of the United States of America to withdraw from UNESCO.” Washington’s move was “a loss for multiculturalism and the UN family,” she added. In a statement released later, Bokova said: “At the time when the fight against violent extremism calls for renewed investment in education, in dialogue among cultures to prevent hatred, it is deeply regrettable that the USA should withdraw from the United Nations agency leading these issues.” She added that in 2011, when the US stopped funding the organization, “I was convinced UNESCO had never mattered as much for the USA, or the US for UNESCO.”
Vladimir Tolstoy, the Russian president’s cultural adviser, said that the US withdrawal from the body was a bad sign. “It seems to me this is a bad sign in either case, one that looks worse on the United States rather than UNESCO.”
The USA joined UNESCO as a founding member but pulled out in 1984 because of “a growing disparity between US foreign policy and UNESCO goals.” After 19 years, Washington rejoined the organization in October 2003. “As a symbol of our commitment to human dignity, the USA will return to UNESCO. This organization has been reformed and America will participate fully in its mission to advance human rights and tolerance and learning,” the then-president, George W. Bush, said while announcing the decision to rejoin.
The USA stopped financing UNESCO after the organization moved to admit the Palestinian Authority as a member in 2011. However, the State Department has maintained a mission at the agency’s Paris headquarters. Although the State Department also gave other reasons for withdrawing from UNESCO such as the questions of debt and organizational mismanagement, the US may also be affirming its support for Israel.
Americans played a pivotal role during UNESCO’s formation. Archibald MacLeish, the first US member of UNESCO’s governing board, authored the preamble to its 1945 Constitution, according to the State Department. The constitution’s spirit gained fame due to its opening lines: “Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed.”
There have been several [UNESCO] resolutions which contended with the Israeli, or more accurately the Jewish version of the status of Jerusalem, and one can indeed quarrel with the question whether its cultural, religious, political… there are many layers to Jerusalem of course. Israel considers UNESCO to be pro-Palestine and anti-Israel, and therefore when the USA wants to show that it’s pro-Israel, it becomes anti-UNESCO.”
Obviously, as the key promoter of Zionist fascism in West Asia region, USA expects the UN and UNESCO to follow the footsteps of NATO and UNSC in supporting and actively promoting the Zionist fascism and genocides of Palestinians.
Trump and Netanyahu lick each other’s feet.
Israeli PM Netanyahu announced on October 12 that Israel would very much like to join the USA in leaving the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Israel has long been critical of the UN organization as it refuses to condone all crimes the Zionist regime commits against the humanity. Israel withdrew its ambassador from UNESCO after the organization’s World Heritage Committee adopted a resolution declaring Temple Mount, which is considered by Jews to be a holy site, a “Muslim holy site of worship.” Muslim’s refer to the location as Haram al-Sharif, which means “Noble Sanctuary.”
Netanyahu’s announcement came after the Trump administration announced the USA would be leaving the organization, accusing it of having an anti-Israeli bias. “This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement. “This is a courageous and ethical decision because UNESCO has become a theater of the absurd and instead of preserving history, distorts it,” he said. The USA withdrew from the organization during the Cold War under former President Reagan, while the Obama administration cut $80 million per year of its funding after it admitted Palestine as a member
A few Americans argue that the USA deserves to be left out UNESCO for so many criminal reasons over the past several decades with their sponsorship of terror and now they retreat for Israel. Perhaps what US did in Palmyra UNESCO’s site no one remembers anymore, but Israeli ZOO’s new baboon layer is of the highest regard. However US have taken a wise decision, they simply do not belong together with 150+ normal nations, and UNESCO only being a small part of it.
This move, this resignation of the USA from UNESCO, should be applauded by all who are concerned with human rights, respect, and protection for all indigenous peoples. Remember the once indigenous American Indians, the lost tribes in Brazil, El Salvador, Ecuador, Africa and so many more. Can we leave the fate of the Palestinians in the hands of the USA and Israel?
There is no average Western mind without some sort of historic claim over Jerusalem, while at the same time those who live and pilgrim there for centuries instead of pillaging are not welcome by the same Western average minds. So, maybe after New Year Trump might attempt to do just that, re-take Jerusalem for exclusive chauvinist crusader on behalf of Netanyahu.
So by withdrawing from the organization, the USG surrenders their right to be the sole vote that defends apartheid Israel from UNESCO resolutions that are otherwise unanimously and justifiably against them?
In fact, the UNESCO should have evicted both USA and Israel out of it. Similarly, the UN must also remove both fascist fanatics form its general assembly so that the USA lose the veto membership. Denied its power on UNSC, America would learn its lesson and delete Israel from its favorites’ list.
Unless Israel and its major ally Israel become normal states, their membership of UN is questionable. UN must get rid of truly rogue states like USA and Israel.
With USA and Israel world would be safer.
None thought the election of Trump to Washington would so quickly drag America down to a new level of lunatic alt right idiocy not unlike those who believe the earth is flat. None thought he would also let Israel dictate its foreign policy.
There is a mountain of evidence that Israel is behind the hoax called 9/11 and it was assisted by hard core US fanatics. . So how can this evil regime be any body’s friend? Americans says their leaders are very stupid to obey Israel and follow its directions and work for its success. .
America has become a rogue outlaw state thanks to its love for and promotion of Zionism. From Hollywood, where perverted, degenerate Jews reportedly molest women and children to Israel where degenerate they murder them, the Talmudic, Zionist is the scum of the world. They have taken control of America and now Israel and Trump are in the process of destroying it. The idiot alt right are clueless.
The declarations made by the USA, tells all as to who pulls the strings in Washington that Israel is boss. Netanyahu is the boss of Trump. Well, the world is saying thanks for getting out, good riddance and now buzz off.
Thanks to Donald Trumpet and his abrasive personality as well as lack of diplomacy and the lack of consideration of the repercussions of his ill conceived actions, the US keeps getting isolated further and further by the day as result of alienating friends and foes alike. This indeed is a sole prerequisite for an ideological battle over Jerusalem and of course the subsequent attempt for Trump to try to move US embassy over there. As many of us know if you kick a small stone with your shoe on a Jerusalem street there is a big chance it will land on some sacred site or ground claimed by all sorts of ideologies and crusader style religions and tribalism, all pure UNESCO material.
Corruption and hidden terror agenda have brought these two fascist nations together. Trump is dictator. As genius Founder Ben Franklin said, corruption would take the country down and it has and will until fools in America rise up and put an end to it. End all dual citizenships and all aid to the corrupt cesspool Israel.
It is time for all nations united against apartheid to say “good riddance to the USA. Both USA and Israel put apartheid aggression before humanitarian truths. Leaving UNESCO maybe may be a great start. The earlier the USA leave the United Nations, the better.
The Jewnited States of America (JSA) is a nation run by and for Israel is now the most hated and feared country on the planet. America has no moral compass. America has no credibility. Its flag anthem and Pledge are meaningless jokes. Not many can stand it.
The orange howler-monkeys in the Whore House have officially dragged the nation into the gutter. Anybody who continues to support this sorry piece of human excrement is a thumb sucking moron. America is in the process of intentional isolation and going to become isolated from Europe and the rest of the world. Its bases will be forced to close and America will be the pariah state that is now headed for self destruction. It is now assured.
If we can manage to make it to the New Year without the idiot in the Whore House starting a nuclear war, humanity will be lucky.
