The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) passed a monumental draft resolution this past week denying the Jewish connections to the Temple Mount and Western Wall in Jerusalem.
Denying the Jewish connections to the Temple Mount and Western Wall in Jerusalem.
The draft will now move on to Unesco's executive body, which will vote on whether to adopt it.
Citing the “need” for "the safeguarding of the cultural heritage of Palestine and the distinctive character of East Jerusalem" The resolution refers to the Temple mount (the location of two Jewish Temples) only as the “Al-Aqsa Mosque and Al-Haram Al-Sharif” affirming the Muslim affinity to the holy site and erasing all Jewish connection to Judaism’s holiest site.
By failing to mention any connection to the Jewish people to the Temple Mount, UNESCO has declared it position to hand over the rights and authority of Judaism’s most holy sites to the Palestinians.
The resolution was hailed by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as: “An important message to Israel that it must end its occupation and recognize the Palestinian state and Jerusalem as its capital”
We must share our voice to protest this!
"To say that Israel has no connection to the Temple
Mount and the Western Wall is like saying that China
has no connection to the Great Wall of China or that
Egypt has no connection to the pyramids"
Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu
Now, is the time to take a stand and join the voices that protest this historical injustice and affirm the words of the prophets and the Old Testament promising Israel’s and the Jewish nation’s never-ending bond to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, home of the Beit Hamikdash – The Holy Temple.
