Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday directed Israel's UNESCO ambassador Carmel Shama Hacohen to exit the United Nation's Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) after previous threats to do so.''Sane and well-run countries have nothing to find in the absurd theater which is UNESCO''
Joining the US, which left UNESCO in October, Israel notified the organization that, as of December 31st, it will no longer be a member.
''Sane and well-run countries have nothing to find in the absurd theater which is UNESCO'', said Shama Hacohen. ''The US left UNESCO, at the bottom line, because of Israel, and it is our moral duty that it will not do so alone.''
Shama Hacohen also said that, led by Arab states and ''the oppressed, frustrated and ignorant [states] of the world, UNESCO had broken records of hypocrisy, incitements and lies directed against Israel and the Jewish people.''
Sane and well run countries being the US and Israel? Alongside those other alleged sane and well run countries that voted along with the US and Israel...??
- Marshall Islands
"The oppressed, frustrated and ignorant states of the world?"
I'm getting a real sense of arrogance from that statement. An extreme and irrational sense of entitlement. An unwillingness to be accountable. Yup, sounds like something that would be emanate from Israel, and the US too, for that matter.
