Israel is working to foil an Arab push to declare that the Western Wall belongs to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Here’s what the Jerusalem Post says about a draft resolutionsubmitted to UNESCO by Arab members:
At no point does the resolution mention the Jewish historical connection to Jerusalem, which dates back to biblical times. Nor does it reference the Temple Mount or the Western Wall, which was part of the retaining wall King Herod built for the Temple Mount more than 2,000 years ago. It also relies solely on Arabic names for the holy sites on and around the Temple Mount.
Mohammed wasn’t even a twinkle in his 20 times removed grandfather’s eye when the Jews ruled Jerusalem. So it’s no surprise that the star chamber that is UNESCO might be persuaded that Jews have no connection with Jerusalem and Israel whatsoever. After all, the UN has never been known to let the truth get in the way of Arab hegemony.
