Following the second UNESCO vote to deny the connection between the Jewish people and their holiest sites in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made the decision to recall Israel's ambassador to UNESCO, Carmel Shama-Hacohen.
This was an unprecedented move that has never been taken against any other UN body before.
Netanyahu confirmed the move during an event at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya.
“The theater of the absurd continues, and I have decided to summon to Israel for consultations our ambassador to UNESCO. We will decide what do, what our next steps vis-à-vis the organization will be.”
“What we have to understand in the end -and this will take time- is that this absurdity harms not only the historical truth, but also harms the truth of the present. The credibility of the United Nations will end while Israel continues to grow and flourish.” Netanyahu added.
Shama-Hacohen said that he had already been informed of Netanyahu's decision before the official announcement. “This is a necessary step. Clearly we need to rethink and reevaluate our relations with UNESCO given the persistent persecution of Israel and the Jewish people.”
