In its statement, the State Department cited "continuing anti-Israel bias" at UNESCO, among other things. The Paris-based agency is far from the only U.N. outfit to single out the Jewish state for opprobrium. But UNESCO's anti-Israel stances have been egregious even by this global body's debased standards, especially since 2011. That was the year the Palestinian Authority sought and won admission to UNESCO as a full member-state. As Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies told me, "The Palestinians targeted UNESCO early as part of their Palestine-194 strategy"-the PA effort to win recognition as a state in U.N. halls rather than through talks with Israel. "UNESCO has played a role in this strategy, and it isn't done yet."
