The UN was created as World War II was drawing to a close. It was supposed to prevent another Holocaust from happening. Instead, it has become a tool of the 57-government Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which has turned it into a hysterical tool of “Palestinian” jihad propaganda against Israel. UNESCO in particular has been so outlandishly anti-Israel that last year it declared that the Temple Mount was a Muslim holy site, al-Buraq Plaza, to which Jews had no connection.

Inside an institution that is among the most active in promoting dialogue among cultures, fighting violent extremism and conserving heritage affected, notably, by the destructive acts of terrorist organizations.”
Both the U.S. and Israel announced they would be leaving UNESCO in October. In an announcement explaining its decision, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the U.S. would be withdrawing from the organization because of a “continuing anti-Israel bias.”…
