It would have been truly hilarious

..if it weren’t about the sad fact that 22% of UNESCO’s funding was withdrawn by the U.S. this year, because they dared vote and recognize ‘Palestine’ as a member state.

As a sidenote, I’m not quite clear on why people like Wexler, the U.S. congressman would agree to participate in an über-sarcastic piece like this one (assuming he cared enough about his image to ask to see it before it was broadcast). It makes him look insensitive at best (insanely dumb at worst).

Have your say.
