Israel to withhold $1M in UN funding after UNESCO vote

Galeno Paniagua | 06 May, 2017, 04:07

United Nations cultural agency calls on "occupying power" to end projects aimed at altering "character and status of the Holy City".

Senior Israeli foreign ministry officials expressed their "bitter disappointment" over the vote in their talk with Swedish ambassador Nesser, noting Sweden's "systematic voting" pattern against Israel, a statement read.

Sweden was the only European Union country to vote in favor of the resolution, which passed in a 22-10 vote, with 26 countries either abstaining or not registering a voting decision.

"My goal is to have no votes in UNESCO on Israel", Netanyahu said. "Nothing short of shameful". "We will face all the campaigns of distortion and destruction led by the Israeli occupation authority, armed with global law and the will of our Palestinian people who are capable of creating a future free from occupation", he said.

It also "reaffirmed the importance of Jerusalem to the three monotheistic religions: Islam, Judaism, and Christianity".

FBI Director Comey Testifies Before Senate Judiciary Committee
At a forum in NY on Tuesday, Clinton said Comey's letter to Congress on October 28 was a factor in her loss to President Trump. Comey was asked if he was looking into whether FBI agents may have leaked information about the Clinton investigation.

Netanyahu did however, praise the changes underway in support for Israel in global forums.

Last October, UNESCO passed two separate resolutions ignoring Jewish and Christian ties to Jerusalem's holy sites.

Nahshon called the Swedish statement "a masterpiece of hypocrisy, playing skillfully with nasty anti-Israel propaganda".

Israel's Foreign Ministry says Ambassador Carl Magnus Nesser was summoned Wednesday after Sweden was the only European country to vote for a UNESCO resolution criticizing Israeli excavations in east Jerusalem as a violation of global law.

Late past year, UNESCO passed a series of resolutions which attempted to erase the connection of the Jewish people to the holy places in Jerusalem and to present those places as holy to Muslims only, Arutz Sheva reported.

The Israeli premier also noted that he had ordered the Foreign Ministry to "cut an additional $1 million from the money Israel transfers to the United Nations". "Israel will not sit by while the organization calls for the denial of our sovereignty in Jerusalem", Netanyahu stated.

In December, after the Security Council passed Resolution 2334, Netanyahu ordered $6 million cut from Israel's payment to the UN.

An Israeli official said Wednesday's cut was the third time in recent months Israel reduced its United Nations budget, putting the 2017 payments at $3.7 instead of the original $11 million. Ultimately, Italy informed the other European countries the day before the vote that it planned to oppose the resolution and break the consensus. I would also like to thank the President of Ukraine and the leaders of Paraguay and Togo.

Jordan on Wednesday said UNESCO's vote in favour of a Jerusalem item in the draft resolution "Occupied Palestine" reasserting previous decisions, shows growing world commitment to this very important issue.
