(FaithWire) The Trump administration is just months away from withdrawing from the United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as the committee continues to advance anti-Israel policies. Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said the final straw came in July 2017, when the UNESCO approved a resolution to designate Hebron in the West Bank, home to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, where Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah,

Rebecca and Leah are buried, a Palestinian World Heritage site. At the time, Haley called the highly politicized body a “chronic embarrassment,” according to The Washington Post, adding, “Just as we said in 1984, when President Reagan withdrew from UNESCO, U.S. taxpayers should no longer be on the hook to pay for policies that are hostile toward our values and make a mockery of justice and common sense.” FULL REPORT
