After US, «Israel» Prepares to Withdraw from UNESCO
Local Editor

"Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had instructed the so-called Foreign Ministry to lay the ground work for the "Israeli" entity's withdrawal from UNESCO, the United Nation's cultural and educational agency, the Prime Minister's Office said, following a similar announcement by the US, that said it was leaving the organization due to its anti-"Israel" bias.

Netanyahu welcomed Trump's decision to withdraw from UNESCO. "This is a brave and moral decision, because UNESCO has become a theater of the absurd. Instead of preserving history, it distorts it," he said.

Contrary to the American decision to leave UNESCO, the "Israeli" response was more cautious and did not include a clear message of its intention to leave the agency.

A senior "Israeli" official explained that the door remains open on the entity remaining in UNESCO, saying that withdrawal process from the organization is not immediate, and involves a process of at least a year.

In the case of the US, the withdrawal process will take until December 2018. "If the United States changes its mind about UNESCO within another year and two months because of a change in the organization's behavior following the election of a new director general, Israel may eventually decide not to withdraw," the senior official said.

The entity's War Minister Lieberman also praised the US decision, saying that it was an "important step in the right direction by our biggest ally towards an anti-Semitic and politically biased organization which has turned lies into a common practice and has lost its way."

The US State Department said in a statement on Thursday that "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."

The US would seek to "remain engaged ...as a non-member observer state in order to contribute US views, perspectives and expertise," they said.

In response, UNESCO director General Irina Bokova said in a statement "I wish to express profound regret at the decision of the United States of America to withdraw from UNESCO," said UNESCO director general Irina Bokova in a statement.

UNESCO was the first UN body to admit the Palestinians as a full member in 2011, though the entity had long charged it has held an anti-"Israel" stance. The entity and the United States waged intensive diplomatic efforts to recruit UNESCO member states to vote down controversial measures.
