  • Judaism’s Holiest Site Is Reclassified as Exclusively Muslim by UNESCO
    UNESCO, at its executive board meeting Thursday in Paris, passed a Palestinian-backed measure that denies a Jewish connection to the Old City of Jerusalem. The vote was 24 in favor of the resolution and 6 against, with 26 countries abstaining. The U.S., UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania, and Estonia voted against the resolution. Other European countries abstained.
    Israel’s permanent delegate to UNESCO, Carmel Shama Hacohen, said, “There is no connection of another people to another place in the world that comes close to the strength and depth of our connection to Jerusalem from a religious, historical and national perspective, a connection that has stood the test of 2,000 years.”  (JTA)
