THE UNESCO CASE: The assertive step made by the
U.S. government in formally announcing its withdrawal by
the end of this year from UNESCO — United Nations
Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization — may
open new avenues of thought among many of the member-
states which comprise the United Nations. UNESCO has
during the last years become a conspicuous instrument in
the cold war conducted in the UN against the United States
and against Israel. A year's notice of withdrawal is re-
quired in the UN system.
Leading American Jewish organizations, as well as
non-Jewish groups in the country — including a group of
prestigious scholars professionally concerned with interna-
tional affairs — have long been demanding a readjustment
of the U.S. policy with regard to the UN.
Gone are the years when UNESCO firmly committed
its member-states to support human rights. It is now ad-
vocating a policy of "collective rights" that takes priority
over "individual rights." In simple language — a Soviet-
style policy of denying human rights to individuals. Gone
are also the years when UNESCO published booklets on
Jewish history and sociology showing that Jews lived in
Palestine for many centuries and contradicting Arab and
Soviet propaganda against Israel.
In a foreword to a booklet, "Jewith Thought as a Factor
in Civilization," by Prof. Leon Roth — which UNESCO
ordered and published in 1954 — the agency explains that
in soliciting this work it sought: "firstly, to refute the ac-
cusation of racism often leveled against Jews, by underlin-
ing what, in Judaism is the very negation of racial
exclusivism; and secondly, to record the extent of the debt
humanity owes to Judaism."
No longer does UNESCO make such pronouncements.
The spirit of "Zionism is Racism" is today a dominant
factor in the agency's policy.
Determined to resist the perverse use of the United
Nations by the Soviet-Arab-Third World bloc as an arena
for attack against the United States as well as against
Israel, Congress has already reduced American funds for
two UN agencies. The Senate has also, by a vote of 66 to 23,
recommended withholding a fourth of America's annual
dues to the United Nations. The recommendation needs
only concurrence on the part of the House.
Leading Jewish organizations are at present in-
terested also in the activity on the UN Decade for Women
which has been used as a vehicle for anti-Israel expression.
Legislation is now pending in Congress directing the
President to use "every available means" to ensure that the
decade's final 1985 conference is not dominated by ex-
traneous political issues. It also requires the Secretary of
State to report to Congress on the nature of preparations for
the conference, and their effect on continued U.S. support
and participation in the conference.
