JPost: “In a dramatic upset the world Heritage Committee approved Wednesday, with less than a majority vote, a resolution that ignored Jewish ties to the Temple Mount.
Israel had feared the matter would pass by consensus, or that only a few of the 21-member states would abstain or oppose the text.”
Opinion: I can’t help but connect the continued UNESCO outrage to President Barack Obama and his two recent disparaging moves against Israel.
1. The September 30 speech that Obama made at the funeral of Shimon Peres.
A transcript released shortly after the funeral listed the location as “Jerusalem, Israel.” Hours later, while Obama was still flying back from Israel, the White House issued a corrected transcript:
2. On October 6 President Obama publicly castigated the Israeli government for approving plans to create a new Jewish homes in the West Bank.
The West Bank, Judea and Samaria, were part of the original land grant from Britain in 1917. That land was captured by Jordan during the war of independence in 1948, and recaptured by Israel in the 1967 war.
No nation has ever given back land won in a defensive war.
With the help of the President of the United States, UNESCO has all the power it needs to fuel the war of Psalm 83 and usher in the end of the age.
