"Why does the US care about educating people on the Holocaust? If we're looking to educate people, let's start educating people on the crimes the Zionist Jews have committed in only the past 100 years. We'll start there. Holocaust was BS. The Zionists used it to kill the Jews who were not of a certain class. Yeah, let's educate people on that historical fact!!

  


One has to look beyond the surface for these kinds of facts. What can one do when they already know the truth?

"the US ... put Holocaust awareness at the top its agenda."

Holocaust? Which holocaust? Native American holocaust? Hiroshima? Nagasaki? Latin America? Iraq? Perhaps the US could elaborate on which holocaust it wishes to make us aware of?

Wow. The balls on these Zionist -unts. And "US led initiatives such as Tsunami research and Holocaust education." Why does the US care about education people on the Holocaust? If we're looking to education people, let's start educating people on the crimes the Zionist Jews have commited in only the past 100 years. We'll start there. Holocaust was BS. The Zionists used it to kill the Jews who were not of a certain class. Yeah, let's educate people on that historcal fact!!

This Christian version of Zionism matters deeply, not just because theology intrinsically matters, but because it is overwhelmingly clear that American evangelical-fundamen talist Christian Zionism affects US policy toward Israel and the Palestinians in distressing ways. It is one reason why the United States stands almost alone in the world community in supporting Israeli policies which our international friends generally find intolerable if not immoral and illegal.

To He77 with Unesco & the UN

Palestine must seek justice and all its rights through UN statehood and forget negotiating with USA and Israel while illegal Israel continues to gobble up its land.

The loss of American money is not big deal as Arabs have plenty but it is a good saving for US budget.

How can Israel donate anything when they keep borrowing billion a year from the US?

"...a genocide awareness program in Africa, which used the Holocaust as an example to teach about non-violence, non-discrimination and ethnic tolerance." Perhaps they could introduce this program to Israel.

John Kerry stated that 75 million dollars is on its way to Palestine, this week.

  


John Kerry states a lot of things that never come true , hes the same Zionist puppet that bows down to the state of Israhell

Two less terrorists.

"The loss of US cash has forced it to scale back...Holocaust education."
Does anyone else see the irony there?

Nimrod Barkan said, "accession of a non-existing country like Palestine." So there is a area of land called Palestine after all!! Just because AIPAC and Israel have fought tooth and nail legitimizing the Palestinian existence doesn't mean they don't exist. Thank you Nimrod!!

Pa lestine deserves a seat and UNESCO will be better off being independent of the US funds. It's obvious what Israel wants; the eventual elimination of Palestinian territories. No need to listen to what they have to say, we already have heard it a thousand times.

Fear is the mind killer.
