Obama wants to give $77.7M to UNESCO as Hamas bulldozes UNESCO heritage site

via Obama Administration seeks UNESCO funding as session targets Israel in 5 agenda items at View from Geneva.

In the same week that UNESCO opened its Executive Board session with five anti-Israel agenda items, the Obama Administration asked Congress to waive legislative restrictions and approve $77.7 million in funding for the Paris-based agency.

From the 2014 budget request:

The Administration seeks Congressional support for legislation that would provide authority to waive legislative restrictions that, if triggered, would prohibit paying U.S. contributions to United Nations specialized agencies that grant the Palestinians the same standing as member states or full membership as a state. Should the Congress pass this waiver legislation, the FY 2014 funding specifically requested for UNESCO would cover the FY 2014 UNESCO assessment and the FY 2013 and FY 2014 Contingent Requirements funding would cover arrears which accrued in FY 2012 and FY 2013.

(See submission by Sec. John Kerry p. 45, note 2.)

Also via UN Watch, UNESCO silent as Hamas bulldozes world heritage site for terrorist training camp,

GENEVA, April 15 – In an urgent letter sent today to UNESCO director-general Irina Bokova (see letter below), UN Watch demanded immediate action to stop the Hamas bulldozing of a 3000-year-old Gaza harbor for use as a terrorist training camp, as reported today by Al Monitor Palestine Pulse. A copy was also sent to EU foreign minister Catherine Ashton calling on the EU to take action.

The partial destruction of the ancient Anthedon Harbor—which includes the ruins of a Roman temple and archaeological remains from the Persian, Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine eras—comes exactly one year after the area was nominated by new UNESCO member state Palestine as a World Heritage site.

UN Watch, an independent Geneva-based monitoring group, called on Bokova to bring the issue before the UNESCO executive board now meeting in Paris.

UN Watch’s letter as sent today to Ms. Bokova and Lady Ashton follows here.

  1. Hamas destroying ancient artifacts to expand their terrorist training grounds. So this is accepted behavior? Besides the fact that there is no respect for history, because of course, its not their history. Then I suppose Greek historical artifacts will be destroyed, because no one worships Zeus anymore? Or closer to home, the pyramids, because no one worships Ra anymore? Where is the world’s outcry? Has every country capitulated to these barbarians out of fear? And of course, the Muslim Brotherhood is silent as well even though Hamas is one of their arms. This is an outrage!

  2. It certainly appears as though virtually all western countries have capitulated to islam in the worst display of cowardice and naivete in human history; and that is not over-stating the case. When, in recorded history, have so many, armed with the latest weaponry actually succumbed to such a small retrograde rag-tag mob?

    Of course muslims are being armed with the latest weapons now, thanks to one of their lot who inhabits the White House, and clearly has as his goal the advancement of islam. Again, it’s not over-stating the case to say had Obama been white he would have been impeached long ago; so racism is perhaps more of an issue now than ever before in American history.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
