Unesco Accepts Palestinians as Full Members

So it appears that no matter what the Palestinians do they will become full members of the U.N., it starts with acceptance into UNESCO; and the U.S. stopped its funding for these U.N. programs.
No matter how many Qassam rockets Hamas launches into Israel, no matter how many times Islamic Jihad helps, no matter how many times you will hear a Palestine scream death to the Jews and wipe Israel off the face of the earth, no matter how many Palestinians sneak into Israel and slaughter entire families... they are worthy of acceptance into the U.N....

The NY Times
Palestine became the 195th full member of Unesco on Monday, as the United Nations organization defied a mandated cutoff of American funds under federal legislation from the 1990s. The vote of Unesco’s full membership was 107 to 14, with 52 abstentions.

The step will cost the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization one-quarter of its yearly budget — the 22 percent contributed by the United States (about $70 million) plus another 3 percent contributed by Israel. Victoria Nuland, a State Department spokeswoman, said that American contributions to Unesco, including $60 million scheduled for this month, would not be paid.
