Palestine wins UNESCO seat

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/envoy/palestine-wins-unesco-seat-143002573.html

 

Palestine won full admission into UNESCO, the United Nations science, education and cultural heritage organization, in a closely watched vote in Paris Monday. Global diplomacy hands view the 107-14 vote as a benchmark carrying larger implications for the Palestinians’ bid for state recognition before the UN Security Council. Both the United States and Israel have strongly opposed both initiatives.

 

The United States, Israel, Canada, Germany, Sweden and Australia were among the 14 nations voting against the Palestinians’ UNESCO bid, while 107 countries–including France, Spain, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, India, Russia, China, South Africa and Indonesia–voted in favor. Fourteen nations–including the United Kingdom and Italy–abstained.

Washington, which called the UNESCO vote “premature” Monday, has threatened to cut off funding to UNESCO if Palestine is granted membership. The United States currently accounts for about one-fifth of the organization’s budget.

Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs also rejected the UNESCO vote, and warned it would set back peace process.

“This is a unilateral Palestinian maneuver which will bring no change on the ground but further removes the possibility for a peace agreement,” the Israeli ministry said in a statement.  “This decision will not turn the Palestinian Authority into an actual state yet places unnecessary burdens on the route to renewing negotiations.”

Palestine’s successful UNESCO bid comes as Middle East Quartet envoy Tony Blair is due to meet with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House Monday.

Blair has been trying to advance the Quartet’s efforts to get the Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table, asking each side to lay out their specific terms for resolving the issues of borders and security for a two-state solution. Meanwhile, Israeli officials have been depicting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as an unworthy peace partner.

Abbas, in turn, has recently reiterated his periodic threat to dissolve the Palestinian Authority–a move that if carried out would presumably give Israel the burden of administering, funding, and coordinating security for the West Bank’s Palestinian population.

While John Walsh closes one chapter of “America’s Most  Wanted” and opens another, he can reflect on his self-described “incredible journey” from luxury-hotel builder to TV’s top crimebuster in a  genre that didn’t exist before he came along.

The first of Walsh’s four “AMW” specials airs tomorrow night on Fox — its  home since 1988. Meanwhile, the series soon moves to a new home on Lifetime.

It’s been 30 years since Walsh’s 6-year-old son, Adam, was kidnapped and  brutally murdered — a horrific, life-altering experience that changed the  course of Walsh’s life.

“I was building a $26 million hotel on Paradise Island [when he heard the  news] — that was my love, the hotel business,” says Walsh. “I was successful at  a young age and was part-owner of my own company who went from that business  into the horrible reality of being the parent of a murdered child . . . I didn’t  give a damn anymore about building hotels.”

Walsh’s single-minded pursuit of justice on Adam’s behalf led Fox to hire  Walsh, in 1988, to host its new show, “America’s Most Wanted.”

“I kept saying no. I didn’t know d–k about TV,” Walsh says. “I said, ‘What  is reality TV and what the hell is Fox?’ ’’ But Walsh’s wife, Reve, encouraged  the move and, before long, he was shooting a pilot.

“My first executive producer, Michael Linder, said, ‘Look, you’re made for  TV. You’ve got the hair, the voice, you’re a handsome guy and I’m gonna teach  you how to do this.’

“I would get nervous the day before a shoot . . . it was all by the  seat-of-your pants,” he says. “The learning curve was steep. It was torture. I  didn’t even know which camera was on and I didn’t know where to look.”

“AMW” nabbed a fugitive from the FBI’s most-wanted list in its very first  show and hasn’t looked back.

When, in 1996, Fox canceled the show, the outcry from the law-enforcement  community forced it to reverse its decision.

Walsh says he hasn’t always had a harmonious relationship with law  enforcement.

“When we first started, the  FBI endorsed ‘AMW’ but the small police departments were skeptical about the  media,” Walsh says. “I think the cops knew that, right off the bat, I would be  very critical of them. American cops look at me as an extension of them . . .  but I’m not a cop, and I still keep that distance,” he says.

“I could write books about my battles with law enforcement — they’re my best  buddies, then they shut me out of a case.

“I’ve got a track record, but it’s been a little adversarial over the  years.”

Today, my friend Steven came over for a visit. We mostly just watched tv and Youtube videos. Then after Steven had left my dad’s friends Mike came over.  They drank and had a good time. That’s when I began to remember what had happened between a “friend” had done to me.I’m not going to go in depth about but I will say this I no longer trust him.

My favorite tv show.

My favorite tv is American Idol. I love music and I love watching all the terrible singers who clam to be great singers. I am sad because both Simon and Paula are gone. Even though Tyler Perry and J-Lo are great judges but I still miss Simon and Paula. But I heard that the rating have been going down and that the previous winners haven’t been doing so well. This makes me wonder how much longer will the show be on air. I haven’t heard anything yet, I’m guessing the show is doing better now that they have 2 new judges, but it’s just not the same without Simon and Paula. But it’s still an great show.
