Last month the executive board of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) overwhelmingly (26-6) approved a resolution to ignore the Jewish people’s connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, the holiest sites in both Judaism and Christianity. The resolution on “Occupied Palestine” – presented by several Arab countries – refers to the Temple Mount by only its Arab name: the “Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the vote as “yet another absurd U.N. decision” that proves “there is no low to which it will not stoop.”
Several Western countries, including France, Spain and Sweden, went along with the resolution. The U.S., Great Britain, and Germany were among the countries that voted against it.
“It’s become very clear that the United Nations is a cesspool of Arab-Muslim dominance and the Muslim nations are basically in control of the U.N. now,” says David Rubin, the former mayor of the Israeli city of Shiloh. “The United States is still the biggest supporter and the biggest funder by far of the U.N. But it doesn’t reflect American values in any way, shape, or form.”
And while critical of the U.N. resolution, he adds that it’s fortunate that even many Democrats in Congress support Israel.
