Sen. Cruz and Rep. Ros-Lehtinen: It is Long Past Time for Members of UNESCO to Stop Being Complicit in This Intentional Campaign to Delegitimize Israel

Sen. Cruz and Rep. Ros-Lehtinen release joint statement

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) today released the following statement regarding UNESCO’s consideration of another anti-Israel resolution:

“Last fall, we led a bipartisan, bicameral effort to members of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) urging opposition to two reprehensible anti-Israel resolutions that denied the historical connection of the Jewish people to Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and Western Wall. Next week, on Israel’s Independence Day, it is expected that UNESCO’s Executive Board will consider yet another biased resolution that falsely and shamefully demonizes the Jewish State. These anti-Israel resolutions should be unequivocally rejected whenever they are proposed. It is long past time for Members of UNESCO to stop being complicit in this intentional campaign to delegitimize Israel and we call upon all members of the Executive Board to vote against the upcoming resolution, or any similar such resolution.”
