Yesterday, the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO) announced it would recognize “Palestine” as a full member of its organization.
To its credit, The State Department promptly announced it would suspend U.S. funding of UNESCO. However, I think we should withdraw from UNESCO altogether.
Yet I would remiss if I didn’t mention it was President George W. Bush who brought us back into UNESCO in 2002 after President Reagan withdrew U.S. support in 1984. Reagan was critical of its agenda which was hostile to free markets and a free press as well as for its bloated bureaucracy. It is worth noting that Bush made that announcement during his speech to the UN General Assembly which is primarily remembered for his case for military intervention in Iraq. “This organization has been reformed, and America will participate fully in its mission to advance human rights, tolerance, and learning,” said Bush.
UPDATE: Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird said “we are not happy with this decision, so we are in the midst of looking at our future participation.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
