Despite UNESCO’s bias, Jews won’t abandon Israel’s holy Jewish sites


Two members of the Simon Wiesenthal Center writing for The Hill, deliver a scathing yet entirely correct article of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) decision to rob Jews of their ancient heritage inherent in Israel as if that heritage never existed.

Despite UNESCO’s bias, Jews won’t abandon Israel’s holy Jewish sites

 

 Western Wall Jewish Heritage

Forget fake news. UNESCO is promoting an entire fake universe.

 

Like so many other UN agencies with an assured anti-Israel majority, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) regularly votes to deny some aspect of Israel’s legitimacy. Their diplomatic machinations at UNESCO serves as the backbone of much of the Muslim world’s refusal to recognize the Jewish people’s historic links to Israel, the Holy Land.

 

To legitimate their denial of the past and today’s reality of a Jewish state with more than 8 million citizens, history itself must be re-written, holy sites rebranded. That’s where the Orwellian leveraging of the agency whose raison d’etre is supposed to be the protection of history and culture — not its eradication — comes into play.

 

UNESCO’s new resolution, timed to coincide with Israel’s 69th Independence Day on Tuesday, May 2, rejects Israeli sovereignty over any part of Jerusalem, including modern West Jerusalem.

 

The resolution passed with 22 nations supporting the measure, 10 opposing it, 23 countries abstaining, and three absent.

It’s not just Trump, Europe forgets the Holocaust’s Jewish victims by Rabbi Abraham Cooper & Dr. Harold Brackman… http://fb.me/5sdBG0OuS 

 

In its text, Rachel’s Tomb and the Tomb of the Patriarchs where Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rivka, Jacob and Leah are buried were repackaged as Muslim mosques. To her credit, Irina Bokova, UNESCO’s Director-General, has been a consistent critic of the charade. “To deny, conceal, or erase any of the Jewish, Christian or Muslim traditions runs counter to the reasons that justified its inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage list,” she insisted last year. But Madam Bokova’s term shortly expiries and Israel’s opponents could soon have a firmer grip.

 

What is particularly galling was the role Germany reportedly played in enabling fellow European Union members to be free to support for this outrage.

 

If the German Foreign Minister or any other European diplomat thinks this cynical maneuver which further fuels dreams of an alternative universe sans Israelis will impact Jews in Israel or around the world, they are dead wrong.

 

Jerusalem is the heart of the Jewish people. Centuries ago, long before anyone heard of Mohammed, Jews understood the importance of the city that King David built and made his capital. They built two temples there, which became focal points for their religion and their peoplehood, maintaining that centrality, even in times that it lay in ruins. “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand fail me,” spoke the prophet.

 

In their unparalleled, 2,000-year exile before returning home in modern times, Jews never left Jerusalem. A small group remained in the Holy Land throughout; the rest, scattered literally around the world, were united by the shared prayers offered three times a day for the return to Zion. Jews survived the Crusades, TorquemadaChmielnicki and Hitler without ever diluting their passion for Jerusalem.

TIP President and CEO @JoshBlockDC: UNESCO can’t be allowed to deny Jewish link to Temple Mount http://buff.ly/2dEcFH8  via @thehill

 

The Jewish people will not abide by the ballot box stuffing of morally bankrupt regimes at UNESCO and they won’t forget when Arab were custodians of Jerusalem’s Old City, seized during the 1948 war of independence. Synagogues in the Old City were razed. Tombstones became latrines. Jews were barred from visiting holy sites. Christians took note of the mindset of the conquerors and reacted with horror at the thought that the Church of the Holy Sepulcher could become the next Palmyra.

 

Indeed, anyone concerned with the protection of educational, scientific, and cultural treasures of others, should look at Israel’s record. It may be the only country in the Middle East in recent years where the Christian population has consistently increased. The Jerusalem municipality gives out free Christmas trees to its Christian citizens each year. (If it only gave out one, that would be more than the number of Christians and Jews allowed to visit Mecca!) When different Christian sects come to blows occasionally over the administration of their holy sites, it is the Israeli police whom they call in to restore peace.

 

Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem is the only guarantee that holy places will be preserved for everyone.

 

Reality and mutual respect, not fantasy, are the first building blocks of trust and treaties. It is a toss-up as to who has done more damage with the latest UN Middle East fiasco — Arab regimes that continue to deny that the Jewish people has risen from the ashes, or dapper European diplomats who think they can still denigrate cowering Jews. Take note Berlin and Brussels. Those days are over.

Below is a short video I found on the G+ Community Americans against Jihad that talks about United Nations obvious discrimination against Jewish Israel favoring Arab interlopers calling themselves Palestinians. The UN again condemns Israel and demands the Golan Heights be returned to the most unstable nation in the Middle East which is Syria.

 

This is followed by an article by A.J. Caschetta at The Gatestone Institute about UN disinformation against Israel which would better termed as lies.

The UN’s Palestine Language

 

By A.J. Caschetta

November 30, 2016 4:00 am

The Gatestone Institute

 

  • For decades, UN agencies have slandered the Jewish state, most recently with the April 2016 accusation that it has been “planting Jewish fake graves” in Palestinian territory, and with UNESCO declaring last year that the ancient Jewish Biblical sites Rachel’s Tomb and the Cave of the Patriarchs are actually Muslim holy sites, and last month that the Temple Mount, where the Jewish Temples were destroyed in 587 BCE and 70 CE, is an Islamic site with no connection to Judaism.

 

  • West Bank: This territory was for millennia called Judea and Samaria. After the 1948 War of Independence, Transjordan annexed it, renamed it the “West Bank,” and occupied it for nearly two decades. In the Six Day War, after Jordan attacked Israel, Israel entered the territory and administered it until the Oslo Accords era, when Israel turned over much of the area to the Palestinian Authority.

 

  • Occupation: When it comes to Israel, the UN is obsessed with the word “occupation.” A recent Wall Street Journal article documents 530 General Assembly references to Israel as an “occupying power” versus zero for Indonesia (East Timor), Turkey (Cyprus), Russia (Georgia, Crimea), Morocco (Western Sahara), Vietnam (Cambodia), Armenia (Azerbaijan), Pakistan (Kashmir), or China (Tibet). Saying that Jews are “occupying” Judea is as nonsensical as saying Arabs are “occupying” Arabia or Gauls are “occupying” France.

 

  • Settlement: The UN uses the term to insinuate Israeli theft of “Palestine.” The Obama administration eagerly embraced this terminology. If there is an occupying force in Gaza, it is Hamas. The West Bank is “disputed territories” to anyone claiming a modicum of neutrality. As Elliot Abrams put it, “the term ‘settlement’ loses meaning when applied to Jews building homes in their nation’s capital city.”

 

US President-elect Donald Trump won the White House promising to reform our dysfunctional government. But will he also stand up to the even more dysfunctional United Nations?

 

As the Trump campaign emphasized in a position paper released November 2, the UN has long displayed “enormous anti-Israel bias.” For decades, UN agencies have slandered the Jewish state, most recently with the April 2016 accusation that it has been “planting Jewish fake graves” in Palestinian territory, and with UNESCO declaring last year that the ancient Jewish Biblical sites Rachel’s Tomb and the Cave of the Patriarchs are actually Muslim holy sites, and last month that the Temple Mount, where the First and Second Jewish Temples were destroyed in 587 BCE and 70 CE, is an Islamic site with no connection to Judaism. On the day America elected a new president, the UN adopted ten new resolutions against Israel.

UNESCO last year declared ancient Jewish Biblical sites to actually be Muslim holy sites: the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron (left) as the “Ibrahimi Mosque,” and Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem (right) as the “Bilal ibn Rabah Mosque.” (Images source: Wikimedia Commons)

 

The UN’s greatest achievements against the Jewish state have been rhetorical. By controlling the language of the Palestinian-Israel conflict, the UN has skewed the narrative falsely against Israel. This fabricated language is, in turn, absorbed and perpetuated by the media (both old and new), academics, politicians, and pop culture figures such as Roger Waters, further tainting the world’s perception of the conflict.

 

UN documents regularly use the term “occupied Palestine” and refer to “occupied Palestinian territory” (especially the “West Bank”) being stolen by Jewish “settlement activity.” All four UN terms — “Palestine,” “occupation,” “West Bank,” and “settlement” — are misleading.

 

Palestine: While UN documents regularly refer to “Palestine” and “the State of Palestine,” there is, in fact, no state of Palestine. As David Bukay shows “there has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians at any time in history.” Until recently there have never been a people nor a culture known as “Palestinian” distinct from “Arab.” The Arabs who lived in UN Mandated Palestine turned down statehood in 1947 by rejecting UN Resolution 181. In 1974 the UN recognized the PLO, a terrorist organization, as the official representative of the Palestinian people, paving the way for its emergence from the Oslo peace process under the guise of the Palestinian Authority (PA). In 2000, the PA turned down yet another offer of statehood because the offer did not recognize the “right of return” for millions of descendants of those displaced in 1948 to relocate to within Israel — a population transfer that would eliminate the existence of a Jewish state by demographic means. In 2012, the UN General Assembly upgraded the PA/PLO government to “Non-member Observer State”; UN rules dictate that new member states can only be created by the Security Council.

 

West Bank: The term “West Bank” is also a misnomer. In fact, this territory was for millennia called Judea and Samaria. After the 1948 War of Independence, Transjordan (now known as the Kingdom of Jordan) annexed it, renamed it the “West Bank,” and occupied it for nearly two decades. In the Six Day War, after Jordan attacked Israel, Israel entered the territory and administered it until the Oslo Accords era; then it turned over much of the area to the Palestinian Authority. The final borders of a Palestinian state were left contingent upon Palestinian progress in ending terrorism and bilateral negotiations over presumed land swaps.

 

Occupation: When it comes to Israel, the UN is obsessed with the word “occupation.” A recent Wall Street Journal article documents 530 General Assembly references to Israel as an “occupying power” versus zero for Indonesia (East Timor), Turkey (Cyprus), Russia (Georgia, Crimea), Morocco (Western Sahara), Vietnam (Cambodia), Armenia (Azerbaijan), Pakistan (Kashmir), or China (Tibet). UNESCO’s “Occupied Palestine” document uses the phrase “Israel, the occupying Power” thirteen times.

 

Most Palestinians in Judea and Samaria live under the governance of the Palestinian Authority. Referring to this territory as the “occupied West Bank,” is an unnecessary concession to the UN narrative. Saying that Jews are “occupying” Judea is as nonsensical as saying Arabs are “occupying” Arabia or Gauls are “occupying” France. Nevertheless many media sources (Washington PostNew York Times) use this term reflexively. New-media sources often take it a step farther. Any Google search combining the words “occupation” and “Israel” leads to a “People Also Ask” drop-down offering the following: “At the heart of the Israel/Palestine conflict today lies the question of the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel since the war of 1967, which include the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.” Somehow Google missed the fact there have not been Israelis in Gaza since 2005.

 

Settlement: The term “settlement” evokes imagery of white European settlers encroaching on the ancestral territories of red, brown and black peoples, connoting the moral baggage of colonialism. The UN uses the term to insinuate Israeli theft of “Palestine.” In truth, many of the “West Bank settlers” bemoaned by the UN are not pioneers from other lands but infants, new members of growing families in long-established Jewish neighborhoods.

 

The Obama administration eagerly embraced this terminology. On July 27, Obama State Department spokesman John Kirby issued a statement that reads as though it were written at the UN. The document, entitled “Recent Israeli Settlement Announcements,” suggests that Obama’s State Department has come around to the UN’s way of thinking, especially in “strongly condemning” Israel for its “settlement activity” which it pronounces “corrosive to the cause of peace.”

 

Now that South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has been chosen as the Trump administration’s Ambassador to the UN, it will be up to her to challenge the UN’s ahistorical, slanted Palestine thinking. If there is an occupying force in Gaza, it is Hamas. What Israelis call Judea and Samaria, and Palestinians call the West Bank, are “disputed territories” to anyone claiming a modicum of neutrality. As Elliot Abrams put it, “the term ‘settlement’ loses meaning when applied to Jews building homes in their nation’s capital city.”

UNESCO Revises Jewish History on Temple Mount

WATCH: The UN is erasing Jewish historical connection to the Temple Mount, the most sacred site in Judaism.
Join us and demand the UN explicitly recognize Judaism’s history on the Temple Mount and Western Wall at:

http://tip.nationbuilder.com/unesco

 

On October 14, 2016 the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) ruled the Temple Mount has no Jewish history but has Islamic history.

 

The irony is Mexico contemplated forcing a re-vote but Western nations more friendly to Islam than to the ancient heritage of persuaded Mexico to withdraw re-vote request from UNESCO. Here is an excerpt from the Middle East Monitor –  examine the 10/14 yeas, nays and abstentions:

 

How countries voted previously

 

Countries in support of the motion:

 

Algeria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chad, China, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan and Vietnam

 

Those against:

 

Israel, Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, the Netherlands, the UK and the US

 

Abstentions:

 

Albania, Argentina, Cameroon, Cote de’Ivoire, El Salvador, Spain, France, Ghana, Greece, Guinea, Haiti, India, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda, Paraguay, South Korea, St. Kits and Nevis, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Togo, Trinidad and Ukraine

 

Absent countries:

 

Serbia and Turkmenistan (MEM; 10/18/16 10:24 am)

 

Here are the interesting behind the scenes story on Mexico wavering:

 

 

Mexico was one of several countries who approved the UNESCO Jerusalem Resolution. Six of the other nations opposed and another 26 refused to vote. But, on Monday, Mexico reportedly changed its stance on its vote and will pass up on the second vote.

 

Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said that the country recognizes the link between the Jewish people and East Jerusalem. He added that the government wishes to express its deep appreciation for the Jewish community and for its economic, social and cultural contributions to Mexico.

 

UNESCO Jerusalem Resolution: Why Mexico Changed Its Decision

 

Mexico’s change in decision on the UNESCO Jerusalem Resolution happened after its own Ambassador, Andres Roemer, walked out after the Thursday vote. It was reportedly a personal vendetta against Mexico’s decision favoring the Jerusalem resolution.

 

In the meantime, the Mexican government has removed Ambassador Roemer, a Mexican Jew, from office immediately on Tuesday. This happened despite Mexican Jewish community protests.

 

… (UNESCO Jerusalem Resolution: Does Mexico Matter? By Rubelle Carmeli Tan; MorningLedger.com; 10/19/16)

 

Below are some Christian Israel-friendly posts encouraging you to sign a petition for Congress to place pressure on the United Nations. You KNOW President Barack Hussein Obama won’t holler for a revote, even though he dared not have the USA vote in favor of removing Jewish history in an election climate that needs traditional Jewish-Dems to vote for Crooked Hillary. And if Crooked Hillary is elected in November YOU KNOW she won’t do anything to correct the UN’s historical revisionism.

 

Ergo, check out these posts. Sign the petitions. AND BETTER YET, call or write your Congressman and Senators to makes some noise against UNESCO!

From the desk of Mat Staver:

10/16/2016

On Thursday, UNESCO, the UN cultural agency, passed a resolution which rejects the Jewish connection to Jerusalem. The latest outrage is wholly anti-Semitic, fraught with revisionist history, and excoriates the Israeli government. It should come as no surprise that the “Occupied Palestine” resolution was submitted by six Muslim nations: Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, and Sudan.

UNESCO wants us to believe:

 

  • That Judaism has no historical or rightful connection to the holy sites of the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. It refers to these sites only by their Muslim names. It is in total disregard of biblical history dating back to the Old Testament.
  • It condemns Israel and refers to the Jewish State 14 times as “the Occupying power.”
  • It calls for safeguards of the Palestinian cultural heritage and the distinctive character of east Jerusalem (a divided Jerusalem).
  • It charges Israel with a long list of offenses, including fostering terrorism.

Reaction to the vote has been swift and strong:

 

  • In the wake of UNESCO’s action, Israel has cut or frozen ties with UNESCO
  • Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett said UNESCO was ignoring “thousands of years of Jewish ties to Jerusalem” and aiding “Islamist terror”.
  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that UNESCO had become a “theater of the absurd” in “another delusional decision”.
  • Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said he was “outraged” by the resolution. “Would UNESCO vote to deny the Christian connection to the Vatican? Or the Muslim connection to Mecca? The UNESCO vote claims that there is no connection between the Jewish people and the Western Wall. In fact, it is the UNESCO vote that has no connection to reality.”

The resolution will now be submitted to UNESCO’s executive body, which will vote on whether to adopt it.” The Associated Press reports the “validated resolution” is expected to be heard early next week.

+ + We are calling for the United States government to launch an action of support for Israel!

With UNESCO attempting to erase Jewish history in Jerusalem, Christians in Defense of Israel is petitioning Congress to uphold Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel. With your help, we are urging lawmakers to take action on behalf of The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, acknowledge Jerusalem as the undisputed and undivided capital of Israel, and move the U.S. Embassy to the City of David.
We believe that this declaration will send a message to the entire world that Jerusalem and its holy sites belong to Israel!
John, stand with us by adding your name to our I Stand With Israel and Jerusalem as its Undivided Capital petition.

CIDI representatives will hand deliver the petitions to lawmakers on Capitol Hill as soon as we have enough signatures to make an impact. We are about half way toward our initial goal of 25,000 signers. Click here to join with us.

Thank you!

God bless you. God bless Israel. God bless America.

UN body ratifies decision to erase Jewish history at the Temple Mount

 

Sent: 10/18/2016 11:16 PM

From: The Israel Project

 

Early this morning, the executive committee of UNESCO ratified the decision to erase Jewish history on the Temple Mount. It is now the official position to ignore Judaism’s 3,000 year history at the site.

 

A dangerous precedent has been set – a UN body is calling Israel “the occupying power” at the Western Wall and essentially denying the historical facts that tie Israel to Jerusalem. It could have serious implications on Israel’s future.

 

It is time to fight fire with fire. More than 23,000 people have signed our petition demanding the UN explicitly recognize Judaism’s history on the Temple Mount and Western Wall – will you join them?

 

Click here to add your name and demand the UN explicitly recognize Judaism’s history on the Temple Mount and Western Wall

 

UNESCO didn’t just erase Jewish history, they erased Christian history at the holy site as well. Scripture says Jesus prayed at the Temple. There’s evidence that Byzantine Christians used the Temple Mount before the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem. But in UNESCO’s resolution, all history – other than Islamic history – was erased.

 

If we don’t act now, Judaism could lose its place at its most sacred site and Israel’s international standing could be in danger. In the face of this travesty, we must stand up for Israel.

 

41 Senators, Representatives and more than 23,000 signers to our petition oppose UNESCO’s anti-Israel resolution. Will you, your friends and your family join them?

ICEJ STATEMENT ON UNESCO VOTE

Resolution denies any Jewish connection to holy sites

 

By Dr. Jürgen Bühler, Executive Director

15 Oct 2016 (All day) +0200

International Christian Embassy Jerusalem

 

We are utterly dismayed that UNESCO has adopted once again a scandalous resolution denying any Jewish connection to the holy sites in Jerusalem and the Land of Israel, including the Temple Mount.

 

The resolution omits the traditional, biblical names of sacred Jewish sites, calling them by alternative Muslim names only. This is tantamount to rewriting history and stripping these sites of their 4,000 years of Jewish and 2,000 years of Christian connection. We, as Christians, are deeply concerned that the wording accepted by an international body intends to eradicate any Jewish and Christian bonds to these holy places.

 

This represents a calculated insult against the Jewish people and an affront to two billion Christians worldwide who know full well that as a faithful Jew, Jesus regularly visited the holy Jewish Temple on this site, taught there, and was zealous for its calling as a “house of prayer for all nations.”

 

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is now hosting over 5,000 Christians from nearly 100 nations for a Christian celebration of the biblical Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem. Their presence in this city to mark a Jewish festival at this time demonstrates the historic continuity between our respective faiths and the special place Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in particular hold for Jews and Christians alike. So on behalf of these Christian pilgrims and the millions more they represent back in their home countries, we want to affirm to the Israeli public that we respect the Jewish reverence for Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, and we will stand with you in confronting this devious assault on the historic sites in Israel.

 

The ICEJ had already activated our national branches over recent weeks to work towards changing the wording of this disgraceful UNESCO resolution. And you can rest assured that we will never forget Jerusalem! (Psalm 137:5-6)
