Now it's clear Interpol is as bad as the UN

Interpol voted to accept the PLO into their organization:
Israel suffered a stinging diplomatic setback on Wednesday when the International Police Organization (Interpol) voted to accept “Palestine” as a full member state.

The move at Interpol’s annual General Assembly meeting, held this year in Beijing, came despite furious Israeli efforts over the last few weeks to thwart it. The US was also actively involved up until the last minute in trying to stop the move.

[...] The move passed in a secret ballot by a vote of 75 to 24, with 34 abstentions. The Palestinians needed more than two-thirds of the yes-or-no votes counted, and passed that threshold handily.

[...] The Palestinian initiative to join Interpol is part of an overall strategy to join as a state as many organizations as possible. They withdrew their bid earlier this month to join the UN’s World Tourism Organization (WTO) following intense US pressure.

The US, however, has a degree of leverage on international organizations under the UN umbrellas -- such as the WTO -- that it doesn’t have with international organizations that are independent of the UN. According to US law, Washington must cut funding to UN organizations that accept Palestine as a state. That law does not extend, however, to international groups outside the UN system.

THE US tried to get the Palestinians to back away from this bid as well, but to no avail. It was not immediately clear whether the US did not push as hard this time as they did concerning the WTO, or whether the Palestinians simply decided to buck the American pressure.
I'm sure the PLO did it entirely out of vengeance against Trump's administration for daring to oppose their evil. What the US should do now is pass a law to add sources like Interpol to the list of organizations who, if they don't avoid accepting terrorist gangs into their ranks, will have to accept that funding can be stopped to them as well. Over here, there have been reactions in the government:
Environmental Protection Minister Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) said that "Israel can not stand idle in the face of the Palestinians' diplomatic warfare. We must convene the cabinet and stop all of our good-will gestured towards the Palestinian Authority." Elkin, who also holds the Jerusalem portfolio in the Cabinet, said Israel must withdraw the special transfer permits it approves for PA officials, who he claimed were inciting against the Jewish state.

MK Shuli Moallem (Bayit Yehudi) said Interpol, like all other international organizations, was biased against Israel. "The struggle on our part must continue, even though it appears endless," she said. She added, however, that there were things that the Israeli government should have done, but failed to, to prevent the outcome.
Well they can definitely do them now, and lobby to have the PLO removed from Interpol. Similarly, the USA must start passing resolutions for getting funding withdrawn from several other organizations not related to the UN that take actions harmful to security management.
