BREAKING President Trump Pulling Out Of This UN Program
The United States is withdrawing from the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization over its supposed anti-Israel bias.
  The move is not a surprise, considering the Trump administration's public rebukes this past year. In July, UN ambassador Nikki Haley condemned UNESCO for declaring the Tomb of the Patriarchs an endangered Palestinian world heritage site.

β€œThe UNESCO vote on Hebron is tragic on several levels," Haley said at the time. "It represents an affront to history.” 

That was hardly UNESCO's only apparent anti-Israel behavior. In 2011, the agency voted to include Palestine as a member in 2011. The U.S. was strongly against it and withdrew funding, but the State Department remained in the world body.
