ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There is not, and never was, a country called Palestine. The late terrorist and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, supported by the Russians, invented a people that never existed.

I know quite a bit about Israel, having completed my doctorate at the Catholic University of America on the creation of the modern state of Israel. I continue to do research about it. I’ve come to know Arabs who live in Israel and in the “occupied territories.” They live much better than I’ve seen people in many Arab countries live and better than many people in Latin American and African countries (places in which I have lived).

The moment we accept the non-country Palestine as a member state of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), we will be showing the world a completely biased position and a total lack of common sense. I will press my representatives to vote against any future U.S. financial support for UNESCO.
