Laws that Prevent the funding of UNESCOSubmitted by bigdogpete43 on Tue, 11/01/2011 - 07:54
The law that prevents the funding on UNESCO, 31CFR 594, is driven by the Patriot Act, Section 106. It specifically (and only) names the Palestinian Authority as being related to Hamas.
Being that the President and the Congress wholeheartedly supported the Patriot Act in its entirety, there is no out clause.
It is no a stretch to think that this law would also prevent individual donations to UNESCO. I find it quite funny that the robo-signer of the Patriot Act is now having blowback from his constituents over this.
I am prevented from posting this on other sites.
By the way, there is only one candidate who supports the repeal of the Patriot Act. Spread the word.
