“The Trump administration withdrew the U.S. from the United Nations cultural organization, saying it’s biased against Israel and citing its decision to admit the Palestinian territories as a member state. The decision to quit the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, which the U.S. co-founded in 1945, ‘was not taken lightly,’ State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement Thursday. She cited the need for ‘fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO.’ … The U.S. also withdrew from the organization in 1984 but rejoined in 2003.” (10/12/17)
