Defund UNESCO

Congress should make it a top priority to ensure that not a cent of American money goes to UNESCO. This is why:
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization voted 24 to 6 to approve a resolution denying the historical connection between Jews and sacred sites in Jerusalem, drawing strong rebukes from leaders in Israel who said Jews will continue to visit the areas.

Jerusalem is home to sites significant to Judaism, Islam and Christianity, with the Temple Mount area and adjoining Western Wall considered the most holy site in the Jewish religion. The UNESCO resolution refers to the area by names used in Islam only, and does not acknowledge any link between Jews and the sacred sites.
I'm not exactly observant in my practice of Judaism, far from it. Yet I've been to the Western Wall and I did put a written prayer in the cracks between the giant stone blocks.

So yes, I take this personally.
Those who supported the motion included Algeria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chad, China, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan and Vietnam.

Nations that abstained from the vote were: Albania, Argentina, Cameroon, Cote de’Ivoire, El Salvador, Spain, France, Ghana, Greece, Guinea, Haiti, India, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda, Paraguay, South Korea, St. Kits and Nevis, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Togo, Trinidad and Ukraine.

Absent countries included Serbia and Turkmenistan;

Those who opposed the resolution were: the US, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Germany and Estonia voted against the motion.
Most of the "for" list are islamic nations, and to be frank, I'd expect that sort of historical nonsense from them. To the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua: Next time either of your nations gets hit by a hurricane or an earthquake, go ask your friend the Palestinians for help. To Brazil: Fuck you and may the Zika virus reach a 100% infection rate.

And to Mexico: If Trump wins, I'll cough up to help build his wall, especially if he promises to install a bunch of SM-70s.

As for the abstaining nations: Thanks for nothing, you gutless cocksuckers.

Which was revoked 16 years later, Resolution 46/86. When those fuckers want something badly enough, they will revoke this one, as well.
