Who’s been the manufacture of the sophisticated High-Tech and mass destruction weapons in the Middle East and the world and who used it first? It is funny when you talk about peace while producing deadly weapons… Congratulations to all Palestinian people and Long Life Palestine.

On the other hand there is Fatah, in control of the Palestinian Authority attempting cultural genocide with the aid of UNESCO. They are attempting to destroy any Jewish connection with the land. They destroy Jewish artifacts found on the Temple Mount. They sacked the Tomb of Joseph. Just wait until they start claiming Christian sites. What would the world do when the Church of the Nativity is declared a mosque? They already ousted the majority of Christians from Bethlehem. Just wait until UNESCA backs the PA claim on Christian sites.

Peace is certainly not on the Palestinian agenda. They were offered negotiations without preconditions in which all issues would be discussed. The answer was no. Before that they were offered almost everything they seek now, but the answer was no.

There is no way we should be funding the programs of those who hate us enough to thwart our efforts to promote peace between Israel and the Palestinians. The Palestinians would never abide by any peace agreement even if one was made, but they should not be allowed a back-door approach to entry into the UN as a sovereign nation unless they conform to the requirements of that status. Allowing such admission takes away the leverage needed to bring them to the peace table with serious intentions. Israel has made every effort to secure peace, and the Palestinians have done nothing but murder innocent people with their rocket and bomb attacks. As for the programs funded through UNESCO, we can fund those directly if we so desire, and that would probably be a more effective method anyway. Why do we need a UN agency to siphon off a large percentage of the funds in the process and likely give the rest of it to our enemies?

The fault lies with Congress, not the Palestinians. The solution is to rescind the mandate and at least abstain from any vote on Palestinian membership in the UN and/or affiliated agencies and organizations.

Phyllisofficial is the perfect example of the utterly ignorant and ugly American.

What business does the US congress have in legislating cutting funds to UNESCO if it accepts Palestinian membership?

The Israelis are not serious about peace, the Palestinians are and the only way peace is going to be achieved is through the UN. They have a right to go through the UN as well.
