US Withdrawal From UNESCO: Trump's Antics and the Problematic History of US Legislation on Israel and Palestine 24.10.2017 Truthout.com
The US decision to withdraw from UNESCO appears more an inevitability than a shock when viewed in the context of the problematic history of the US's role in the Middle East and UNESCO's internal politics.

The United States said on October 12, 2017 that it was pulling out of the UN's culture and education body, accusing it of 'anti-Israel bias' in a move that underlines Washington's drift away from international institutions.

In fact, African countries and their politics are almost never discussed in leftist circles except to make points about imperialism or China.
