What do you think of recent US stance of cutting funds for UNESCO on Palestine issue ?
It's a debate to have different perspectives on an issue.
Recently in a vote of member countries UNESCO decided to make Palestine a full member. In reaction of this US immediately decided to cut all their funding commitments to UNESCO.
What's your thought about it ?
UNESCO made the decision through vote - a democratic process and the vote resulted overwhelmingly in favour of Palestine.
By stopping funding to UNESCO , do you think US took a anti-democratic stance?
US is getting support from UNESCO for Afgan & Iraq already, what will happen with that? We want peace, do we not?
Yes funding or donation completely depends on donor will (though those donations are never pure donation being string attached always), but if giving a donation or funding is strongly linked with such terms is it really a donation?
For reference please check this news (though I am not fan of mainstream media , I am giving link as I did not find any other source)
