    Obama wants to give money to UNESCO after all

    http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/201...nd-unesco.html

    From news article:

    In a deviation from the charm offensive he has been aiming at American Jews in the last several months, President Obama has asked Congress to grant him a waiver that will allow the administration to continue funding the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) despite its recognition of Palestinian statehood. U.S. law forbids the funding of any international organization that grants admission to the Palestinians as a separate, independent state prior to its signing a peace treaty with Israel. However, JTA reports that Obama, who is a dedicated admirer of the UN and its member agencies, hopes he can persuade Congress to let him keep sending taxpayer dollars to the group in spite of the law.

    My view is that the US with Obama as its President is probably the least reliable in any event whatsoever. He will refer it to the UN for approval before he acts. (then it might be to late)
