Washington, Dec. 13 -
Mr. Speaker, the U.N. agency UNESCO sent a message to Israel loud and clear that the U.N. accepts the creation of a Palestinian state whether Israel likes it or not. UNESCO intervened in the peace process and formally recognizes the Palestinian state by raising flag in front of the whole world. No surprise there, just another day in the U.N.ís position of bigotry against all things Israel. Yet another reason to cut U.N. funding.
Israel is Americaís loyal ally and the lone free and democratic country in the Middle East. Its people are constantly under attack from the jihadists who wish to remove them from the Earth all in the name of religion. The same radicals who wish to kill innocent Israelis are also sworn enemies of America. Intimidation, terror, and murder are not acceptable and must be rejected by the entire international community, especially the U.N. The United States must make it clear that we stand with Israel in their fight against hate and extremism, whether the U.N. likes it or not.
And thatís just the way it is.
