UNESCO Director-General condemns the destruction of Bani Matar Mosque in Yemen
5 September 2016
The Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, has condemned the destruction of a 9th century mosque located in Bani Matar, Sana’a Governorate.
“I am deeply concerned about the continuing destruction of Yemen’s unique cultural heritage. This is a direct attack against the country’s historical sites, and on the people’s history and identity that will affect the society over the very long term. This senseless violence must stop immediately” said Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director-General.
Several reports from the General Organization of Antiquities and Museums (GOAM) and the General Organization for the Preservation of Historic Cities (GOPHCY) in Yemen, notably, have confirmed the destruction of the mosque by an air strike on Thursday August 25, 2016.
Contrary to Ms Bokova, United States President Donald Trump loves the bloody war by the Saudi absolute monarchy on Yemen, and helps it wherever he can.
So, it is not surprising that Donald Trump does not like Irina Bokova’s organisation.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
The US will leave the United Nations organisation UNESCO. The United States State Department reports that the country is leaving from the organisation for peace building, poverty alleviation, sustainable development, education, culture and science as of 31 December.
What! I had to google this to make sure it wasn’t fake news. Wow! It has begun….
Good that you found confirmation 🙂 That you did not find it immediately may say something on corporate media.
However, there are some problems about what Google considers ‘fake news’: they consider, eg, Fox News which often is fake news, but is part of a big corporate empire
not fake news.
While they recently made it much harder to find news from leftist, anti-war etc. sources:

Oh, yes I agree with you there, but also I ‘ve been on campus all day reading and studying so wordpress has been my only access to news. Its usually when I go home (9 or 10pm) that I will turn on youtube and digest the daily summary of what happened from various political sites that I follow. I think this is an interesting step, because most Americans do not know UNESCO or its purpose, so after he gauges the reaction he will stepy away from other well-known institutions like the WHO and UN itself. Maybe WTO too.
