An AP reporter confronts as US representitive after the United States cut off funding to UNESCO due to its decision to include Palestine as a state.
Some interesting points were brought up over America's actual commitment to finding a joint peace-settlement and its overly overt support for Israel.
The AP reporter clearly put the US representitive in a difficult and uncomftable posiition.
The lady in the video mentions legislative restrictions would prevent the USA form making the $60 million U$D contributions to UNESCO and yet they are
not detailed in anyway!
Can anybody please point out any such legislative restrictions?
Personal Disclosure: So basically what I got from the video is that Israel rejects any Palestinian Statehood and wont return to the negotiation tables
if Palestine EVER gets statehood [which it just did] and this leads me to believe that Israel was never really serious about having peace with its
neighbours because it clearly doesn't want them on an equal footing!
Seems like we are on the Eve of Destruction more than ever!
Peace in the middle east will never exist as long as the state of Israel exits.
What I found rather interesting was the reporter calling the representitive out when she said that the Palestinian bid for statehood and the
Palestinian bid for full membership in UNESCO was creating tension. The only reason it is essentially creating tension is because the current Israeli
regime is trying all it can to postpone (and maybe even avoid) Palestine achieve statehood. The bid for full membership wasn't exactly creating
tensions. The only state which really disproved was Israel which entailed US disaproval. I find it alarming that they call a legitimate bid for full
membership in UNESCO through a completely legitimate legal framework "provocative".
