“Amexit”: United States Exits UNESCO


Last October 12, the U.S. State Department formally notified United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Director General Irina Bokova of the country’s decision to leave the organization.

The official statement cited the following reasons for exiting UNESCO: concerns with mounting arrears, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and policies that remain biased versus Israel.

However the U.S. statement provided some assurances to the beleaguered organization:

“The U.S. government indicated to the Director General its desire to remain engaged with UNESCO as a non-member observer in order to contribute U.S. views, perspectives and expertise on some of the important issues undertaken by the organization including the protection of world heritage, advocating for press freedoms, promoting scientific collaboration and education.”

Based on provisions of UNESCO’s constitution, the United States’ departure from the organization will take effect on the last day of 2018.

In response, UNESCO Director-General Bokova expressed regret over the United States’ decision to withdraw from the organization:

“At a time when conflicts continue to tear apart societies across the world, it is deeply regrettable for the United States to withdraw from the United Nations agency promoting education for peace and protecting culture under attack. This is a loss to the United Nations family. This is a loss for multilateralism.”

Multilateralism is another term for globalism.

Problems with UNESCO started before Donald J. Trump was elected 45th President of the United States.

A federal law enacted in the 1990’s prevented the U.S. from funding any international organization that admits the State of Palestine as a member. The U.S. government under President Barack Obama was forced to stop sending American financial support. According to UNESCO, American tax payers owe the organization “half of a billion U.S. dollars”.

But the most serious concerns hovered around Bokova who is known to receive support from international communism and renowned globalists such as the Rothschild family.

In her youth, Bokova joined the Bulgarian Communist Party which is reputed for acts of mass murder and brutality. The influence of her father, Georgi Bokov, a former high ranking communist party member enabled Irina to secure a position at the KGB-controlled Moscow State Institute of International Relations which in reality was an elite training centre for future spies and operatives.

Bokova’s ostentatious lifestyle is under scrutiny. She reportedly owns luxury properties around the world which would be impossible to own given her tax-funded income.

The withdrawal of the United States has further exacerbated the UNESCO’s free-fall as the Obama Administration’s global partner in globalizing education to a byword for bureaucratic tyranny and corruption.
