In an unprecedented move, both US and Israel has left the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)on the ground that the latter is taking an anti – Israel stand. The US has not been contributing to the UNESCO fund since  2011 since UNESCO has been recognizing Palestine.

Narrow nationalism and anti-Palestine phobia has blinded US against international commitments. World nations have criticized US for the unjustified withdrawal and also non payment of funds to UNESCO.
