The two largest Palestinian factions signed a historic accord on October 12 in Cairo. If it holds, it would end a decade of uneasy coexistence. As the Palestinian factions move forward in a new effort to create a unity government, we owe it to Palestinian women to tell our government not to sabotage them.

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. It reflects a history of US bias against Palestinians and an unwavering commitment to Israel that predates Trump. A picture taken on October 12, 2017 shows the flags flying in front of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) headquarters in Paris. 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.
