Maiden Hoisting of Palestian Flag at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris

Last October when UNESCO allowed the Palestine into its membership hold, there was a hue and cry from Israel, America and some  other allies. But UNESCO did not have cold feet despite threats of cuts in grant.

Now after almost two months, the Palestinian flag goes up at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, much to the annoyance of those who objected to Palestinian entry into UNESCO.

Palestinian president Mohammad Abbas was specially in Paris to witness the maiden flag hoisting ceremony. No one could have been more jubilant than Abbas today for it was becasue of his diplomatic efforts that enesured Palestian entry into this world body.
