Washington won’t make planned USD 60 million transfer for UN cultural agency, State Department says. FM: Israel should cut ties with PA.
The United States said on Monday it had stopped funding UNESCO, the UN cultural agency, following its vote to grant the Palestinians full membership.
US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters the United States had no choice but to halt funding because of longstanding US law, saying Washington would not make a planned $60 million transfer that was due in November.
In response to the UNESCO decision, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday said that Israel should consider cutting all ties with the Palestinian Authority.
“My recommendations will be very clear,” the foreign minister explained at an Israel Beiteinu faction meeting, “We need to weigh cutting all ties with the Palestinian Authority.” He added, “we cannot continue to accept unilateral measures time after time.”

No need for further comments. The United Nations have again proven that it really is the assembly of the wicked.
Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
