“LONG LIVE PALESTINE!” ANTI-ISRAEL UNESCO APPROVES PALESTINE AS MEMBER

“Long Live Palestine!” a UNESCO member shouted in French, reports AP, when vote of 107-14 with 52 abstentions was announced. The non-state Palestine is now an official member of UNESCO. Long considered a bastion of anti-Israel sentiment, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has approved a state that is not a state whose primary goal is to destroy another one of its members, ISRAEL. Heartbreaking!

I lived in Israel for almost two years, first on a kibbutz, then in Beersheva, Ramat Gan and finally Jerusalem. It personally hurts me that there exists in the world so much anti-Israel sentiment as well as anti-Semetic feelings in general. I have never understood it. Neither has my husband, Max, who was baptized at the Vatican and raised Catholic. I am Jewish.
