The United Nations UNESCO body has passed a resolution put forth by the Palestinians denying all connection between Jews and Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
PM Netanyahu: To say that Israel has no connection to the Temple Mount and Western Wall is like saying China has no connection to the Great Wall.”
UNESCO has decided that there is no Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount following a Palestinian initiative on Thursday.
There were 26 countries who abstained from the vote, including Serbia and Turkmenistan, while 24 countries supported the initiative and six voted against it. It should be noted that not a single European nation voted for the initiative.
The countries of France, Sweden, Slovenia, India, Argentina, and Togo at first were going to vote for the resolution saying that Jews have no connection to Jerusalem, but were convinced to abstain from voting in the end.
