Israel's UNESCO representative recommends following US' withdrawal from the organization

Carmel Shama-Hacohen, Israel's representative at UNESCO, commented on the United States' withdrawal from the organization, in part because of its decisions against Israel.

 

"In recent years, UNESCO has transformed itself into an absurd organization that lost its professional path in favor of the political interests of certain countries," he said, adding that his "personal recommendation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is to stick by the United States and immediately withdraw from UNESCO."
