  • Farouk Hosni, the Egyptian Culture Minister is the wrong person for Director General of UNESCO.   Throughout his tenure as Culture Minister, Mr. Hosni has consistently promoted policies that contravene the founding principles of UNESCO through his entrenched opposition to cultural exchanges with Israel and his hostility towards Israeli culture.
     
  • Governments must oppose proposals codifying "defamation of religion" codes as an unacceptable erosion of human rights protections developed to protect the individual from repression. The Jewish community is vigilant in its support for free expression including the fundamental right to conduct open debate about faith and religion and opposes attempts to curb freedom of conscience and expression under the guise of protecting religions or any ideology from criticism.
