UN passes anti-Israel resolutions, disavows Israeli ties to Jerusalem


JNS: The United Nations General Assembly passed six anti-Israel resolutions on Thursday, including a measure disavowing Israeli ties to Jerusalem and its holy sites.

Approved in a 151-6 vote with nine abstentions, the General Assembly resolution stated that “any actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever.”

The resolution was similar to previous Jerusalem-related measures passed in recent years by the U.N. cultural body UNESCO, which omitted the name “Temple Mount” and only used the Muslim term for the holy site, “Haram al-Sharif.” more …

Opinion: Kiddushin 49b:

Ten portions of sorrow, God gave to the world;
nine to Jerusalem and one for the rest of mankind.”

I found this Jewish prayer while leading my fist prophecy study group 7 years ago. A few of those men are regulars on this blog.  It kind of says it all.
