This is great news! The United States has just pulled out of the UN’s cultural organization UNESCO, citing anti-Israel bias.
Here’s the press release:

If you’ll remember, earlier this year UNESCO decided that the tomb where Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca and Leah are buried was in fact not Jewish and chose and make it a Palestinian site:
This is another delusional UNESCO decision. They decided the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron is a Palestinian site – that it is not Jewish.

They also did the same for the Western Wall.
This same UN organization also granted full membership to the Palestinians, despite their official lack of statehood. The US, required by law, then suspended all funding for UNESCO.
So I’m very glad to see we are officially pulling out of the organization. Kudos to the Trump administration for making such a bold move in standing up for Israel.
