The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)passed a resolution last week that nullified all Jewish and Christian ties and connections to the Western Wall (The Kotel) The Temple Mount, The Ma’Harat Machpelah (The Cave Of The Patriarchs, where Avraham and Sarah are buried) as well as Rachel’s Tomb and other holy sites revered by Jews the world over for centuries.
The resolution not only erased any Judeo-Christian connection to these sites, but referred to them by their Muslim names. These are mostly derived from the names of mosques that were built over them or near them centuries later during the brief Arab conquest. Here’s how ridiculous this sounds:
This abomination also referred to all of East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria as ‘occupied’ and Israel as the ‘occupying power.’ It also ‘deeply condemned’ Israeli ‘aggressions and illegal measures against the Awqaf Department and its personnel, and against the freedom of worship.’
‘Aggressions?’ ‘Freedom of Worship?’ You mean like this?
