Was it a good or a bad move from out President?
On the recent, the administration of Trump announced something huge! As of this week, the United States are officially out of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization! This organization is also known as the UNESCO, which helped the state develop and have easier access to scientific data.
On the other hand, UNESCO has not been America’s best friend over the years. Especially, when the UNESCO recognized and accepted Palestine as a full member. After America cut the countless funding it did to the group, our country lost its voting privileges in 2013. Not a very respective move from the UNESCO side towards our country.
One thing UNESCO is well known is for designing the World Heritage sites, which have been something different. They have been highly controversial this year with the Tomb of Patriarchs being named a Palestinian World heritage site. Even though, the Israelis believed the city is the birthplace of the Jewish people. The Jews actually believe that the Patriarchs, which is known as the Cave of the Patriarchs, is the grave of Abraham, Isaac and Jacoob. But on the other hand, Muslims revere that Abraham built the Sanctuary of Abraham in the 14th century.
One other thing about UNESCO is that it’s also known for promoting women’s rights, clean water, and literacy.
This is a breaking news story. We will update this report as more details become available!
