    IMO the US should get out of the UN entirely and kick the UN out of the US. That would effectively be the end of the UN but I am not so sure that the world would not be better off without it. One plus would be that the US Government could no longer use UN resolutions to legitimize invasions of foreign nations.

    "UNESCO - Encourages international peace and universal respect by promoting collaboration among nations."

    No place for that nonsense.

    well, given that Israel was created by the UN "Establishment of the State of Israel
    On May 14, 1948, the last British forces left Haifa. The Jewish Agency, led by David Ben-Gurion, declared the establishment of the State of Israel, in accordance with the 1947 UN Partition Plan. Ben-Gurion became Prime Minister of the new state. Both superpower leaders, U.S. President Harry S. Truman and Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, immediately recognized the new state. At this time the Jewish population of Palestine was approximately 650,000, the Arab population around 1.2 million." The fact that Palestine refuses to recognize the existence of Israel is kind of a problem for the rest of the United Nations. BTW if one goes back far enough ALL countries were invaded by foreigners!! Where does one draw the line? I challenge anyone to give me an example of a country that was not invaded at one point in history.

    egypt was ruled for a short time by nubian kings later by greeks but the folks stayd the same... There wasnt a big movement

    Also for germany... Allways germans and the netherlands were germans to... Some areas neare the german city münster still speak the original netherland dialekt...
    And you can divide even the netherlands in netherland and holland...

    And when should that happend that the netherlands populated europ?

    Just look at the language... From india till europ its indogerman... Named by the two folks that created the basis of all this languages from india to europ... Only exception is hungary

    at the end nearly hole north middle and east europ are germans

    Even russia was founded by germans the "rus" and france by the "franken" or england by "angeln" and "sachsen" norwegians are germans to...


    But thats not the question of this thread

    no big movement?
    just the skin tones shows us different;
    such a central location,
    you can be sure there was plenty of foot traffic.

    And yes, Neanderthal was indeed there before
    Homo Erectus made it to Europe from Africa.

    The promotion of peace and security through international collaborations is the headline mission of UNESCO. It is very hard to see how its present decision can be seen as in keeping with its declared mission. UNESCO is not competent to make a decision on the status of Palestine. In seeming to make such a decision in creates a friction surface which may promote conflict.

    I imagine the correct way forward would be some sort of protest through the UN to which UNESCO is answerable. I assume the UN could over-rule this decision.

    the skin tones of the current Egyptian population
    indicates, at the very least, heavy "métissage"
    with people from the Arabian peninsula;
    (one way foreign polulations enter a land)
    and concidering regional history, this did
    not happen completely peacefully.

    Neanderthals not Netherlands,
    those are two very different things.

    the accepted view today is that
    Neanderthal did not make it
    in the Human lineage.
    so... yes, they are alien to us.
