UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Association, announced a number of resolutions just before the weekend started.
One, submitted by the Russian Federation, called for defining UNESCOs role in safeguarding and preserving Palmyra and other Syrian World Heritage sites. Another was about Enhancing UNESCOs contributions to promote a culture of mutual respect and tolerance.
A third was simply entitled Occupied Palestine and addressed the Jerusalem Old City hotspot that Jews refer to as the Temple Mount and Muslims call Haram Al-Sharif, the Noble Sanctuary. Except that the Jewish link to the site, considered the holiest place for Jews, went unmentioned.
In the context of Jerusalems Old City, the document refers to Israel solely as the occupying power and refers to the site itself, the world famous esplanade flanked by the Western Wall - considered by many experts to be the last existing retaining wall of the mount that once held the ancient Jewish temples - only by its Islamic moniker.
The decision refers to the plaza fronting the Western Wall only in quotation marks, except when using one of its Arabic names, Al-Buraq, a reference to the Prophet Mohammeds ascent to heaven.
The Israeli government responded with fury.
This is yet another absurd UN decision, an incandescent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement released late on Saturday. UNESCO ignores the unique historic connection of Judaism to the Temple Mount, where the two temples stood for a thousand years and to which every Jew in the world has prayed for thousands of years. The UN is rewriting a basic part of human history and has again proven that there is no low to which it will not stoop.

Time to build the third temple.
Sounds good to me.
The mosque is a giant pimple on the ass of Israel. Time for it to be popped.
It’s in the works
Time to dissolve the UN.
Agreed. It is time that the Christian and Jewish brothers built it 104 stories tall.
What alternate universe have they been living in?
The muslim-pleasing universe. :-(
I used to think that UNESCO was just another harmless if expensive toy of the United Nations. Neutral at best. No more.
It is obviously now just another weapon of the Muslim Mass Murderers.
One [UN resolution], submitted by the Russian Federation, called for "defining UNESCOs role in safeguarding and preserving Palmyra and other Syrian World Heritage sites."
Harmless enough, if the muslims themselves do not value historical cultural sites created long before islam existed, AND only if the United States is not required to fund said safeguarding and preservation; the financers of ISIS/ISIL must bear the cost.
Another resolution was about Enhancing UNESCOs contributions to promote a culture of mutual respect and tolerance.
TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE TO THE U.S TAXPAYER!
As far as I know UNESCO cannot fund a thing; member nations do, and the U.S. has no desire to fix Islam's mistakes.
The civilized muslim countries, if any exist, should fund it entirely.
This muslim resolution is sneakily attempting to demand (a la Obama) respect and tolerance from the entire world, while islam itself continues to be the most disrespectful, intolerant and barbaric culture* on the planet.
*Islam and the umma are synonymous in that culture, and is indivisible. Before the early 20th century, In Arabic, the word country did not exist.

Infuriating, isn’t it?
