A year after the U.S. cut off its financing to UNESCO, following a vote to make Palestine a full member, the organization has cut back programs to reduce costs.
UNESCO’s director general, Irina Bokova, has secured pledges of about USD 70 million since December to try to make up for the USD 144 million in dues that the U.S. has withheld, she said in an interview in Paris.
“But there is still an enormous shortfall.”
Congress had passed two laws in the early 1990s requiring an immediate cutoff of money to any UN agency that accepted Palestine as a member.

All who support “Palestine” as a new state support terrorism.
Because the basic principle of a state, is the existence of borders.
“Palestine” has no borders.
UNESCO claims that the state of Palestine has to be made along “1967-borders”. But there are no “1967-borders”.
When the state of Israel won the 1948 war of independence, the Arabs nations refused to recognize the very state of Israel. There was only a cease fire agreement. After the 1967 war, there were still only an agreement of cease fire.
No statehood can be established based on a cease fire agreement.
No statehood can be established without a recognition of the neighboring nations.
No statehood can be established without a capital.
No nation can be established without a port, or at least an airport.
Such a statehood is a paper tiger, a fiction, a political weapon made for the purpose of weakening and finally destroying the state of Israel.
This is the truth.
Thanks to the majority of the US Senate, who stand up for the state of Israel. May UNESCO accept that they are supporting evil, and change their ways.
