The defense Minister, the leader of the party «Israel Our home» Avigdor Lieberman welcomed the decision of the US to withdraw from UNESCO. He said that the most important ally of Israel has taken important and appropriate step against anti-Semitic and politically biased organization, in which the lie is the norm.
In turn, the Chairman of the parliamentary faction of the party «Israel Our home» Robert Ilatov noted that the U.S. withdrawal from UNESCO should be seen as a direct and unambiguous signal to all those organizations that call themselves «human rights» and «objective», but in fact is a clearly biased anti-Israel stance and trying to rewrite history.
The MP, who heads the Subcommittee on foreign policy and advocacy of the Knesset’s foreign Affairs and defense, said that taking over and over again is absurd resolution, UNESCO has lost the mandate it issued UN organization responsible for science, culture and education.
«The existence of UNESCO in its current form to be unlawful and no longer justified. A noble decision by the United States is one more evidence of the unbreakable ties and strategic partnership between Israel and the United States,» – said Robert Ilatov.
