1. Israel pulls out of UNESCO.
Because it demonizes the Jewish state, elevates murderous regimes, betrays mission to protect education, science, culture.
Condemnations by UNESCO, 2009-2014

2. When France & Sweden falsely & obscenely voted @UNESCO to accuse Israel of 'planting Jewish fake graves' in Jerusalem, they helped destroy the agency.
3. Betraying its mission to protect world heritage and culture, UNESCO repeatedly denies the ancient Jewish & Christian heritage and culture of holy cities Jerusalem and Hebron—which was this year declared a "World Heritage site of Palestine." whc.unesco.org/en/statesparti…
4. UNESCO elected #Syria’s Assad regime to its human rights committee in 2011. When @UNWatch exposed the outrage and launched a protest campaign, the U.S. & UK were embarrassed and tried to remove Syria — but failed to get enough votes to do so. unwatch.org/today-scandalo…
5. In 2013, UNESCO enshrined “The Life and Works of Ernesto Che Guevara”—even though he led firing squads. President Obama’s rep demanded that UNESCO’s program “not be used as a tool to glorify or legitimize violence.” His objection was ignored. unesco.org/new/en/communi…
6. UNESCO created $3 million prize named for brutal dictator of Equatorial Guinea. His state radio: Obiang “can decide to kill” without anyone calling him to account because he is in “permanent contact” with God, “who gives him this strength. economist.com/node/21559398
7. UNESCO also created an education prize in the name of—and sponsored by—the despot of Bahrain. The “King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize.”
8. UNESCO chief tried to sponsor “Philosophy Day” in Tehran—despite #Iran’s horrific record of torture & repression. “I hope this will be a major opportunity for free intellectual debates around the topics,” she said. In the end, UNESCO had to cancel. unwatch.org/unesco-celebra…

UNRWA foreign staff flee Gaza to Israel after Hamas allows protests, death threats. Yet not 1 word criticizing Hamas from @UNRWA, its chief @PKraehenbuehl, spokespersons @ChrisGunness & @Fernande_VT or Gaza chief @matzschmale. But they attack Israel daily. haaretz.com/middle-east-ne…
These international UNRWA managers knowingly employ teachers who praise Hitler & preach anti-Semitism & terrorism. I sent @matzschmale our info & he denied everything. Now they are literally running to Israel—from their own Gaza employees—to save their own lives. EU funds this.
• UN Watch's 130-page report detailing UNRWA teachers' systematic incitement to Jihadist terrorism and antisemitism: unwatch.org/wp-content/upl…
• EU & its member states fund UNRWA but won't say if they demanded UNRWA fire any of these racists

BREAKING: After Jeremy Corbyn refuses four times on Channel 4 interview to answer whether he regrets taking money from the Iranian TV station that aired filmmaker Maziar Bahari’s forced confessions under torture, Bahari calls on Corbyn to finally confront his past and apologize.
Bahari, whose labor activist father suffered years in the Shah’s jails, wonders why Labor’s Corbyn is close to Iran’s Islamic regime, “one of the most anti-union governments in the world. Unions are almost outlawed and union activists are regularly arrested and tortured in Iran.”
Bahari, who supports many policies of the Labour Party, says it “should keep a distance from the Iranian government and its propaganda channels.”

.@UN_HRC Why did you invite discredited William Schabas to address the UN when on grounds of conflict of interest in 2015 he was ignominiously forced to resign from your Gaza inquiry after it was revealed he had failed to disclose his paid legal work for the PLO?

#HRC39 #ethics
In his pathetic resignation letter, Schabas explained that he never bothered to disclose his paid legal work for the PLO because....no one ever asked him. "I was not requested to detail my past activities concerning Palestine..."
To his credit, UNHRC President Joachim Ruecker established the principle that UN appointees should avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest. Only after Amb. Ruecker formally requested a legal opinion from UN Headquarters in New York did Schabas resign.

I'm here @UN European Headquarters in Geneva hosting Russian democracy dissident Vladimir Kara-Murza as he addresses the press corps after his powerful testimony before the Human Rights Council for the freedom of political prisoner Alexei Pichugin. unwatch.org/russian-democr…
"My name is Vladimir Kara-Murza, I am a Russian democracy activist, and I am honored to address the United Nations Human Rights Council on behalf of UN Watch."
"Last month marked 15 years since the arrest of Alexei Pichugin, an executive at Russia’s Yukos oil company. His arrest launched the campaign by Vladimir Putin’s government against Yukos CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky who dared to speak out against corruption & support civil society."

We're about to release a 60-page report documenting 10 years of staggering, system-wide @UN inaction on antisemitism. This oped ignores that. It rightly praises @AntonioGuterres for deleting a biased report, yet shortchanges @NikkiHaley who made him do it. wsj.com/articles/a-rig…
We are not told, for example, about how CERD, the UN treaty body on racism, has never once addressed the virulent and murderous incitement to antisemitism rampant in Arab and Muslim countries.
When this body of UN racism experts reviewed France, Germany, Greece, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Russia, Sweden & Turkey, they rarely if ever addressed the scourge of antisemitism, including deadly attacks against Jewish schools and synagogues.
