Time to Leave UNESCO – Again

On April 11, 2016, the Executive Board of UNESCO adopted a resolution called “Occupied Palestine.” The title immediately exposes it as a biased document. That is not surprising. All the texts adopted by UNESCO concerning the Middle East are biased.

However, those who read it carefully can see that a further step was taken.

UNESCO’s resolution is not only biased: it is negationist. All traces of Jewish presence in Jerusalem and Judea in ancient times are eliminated at the stroke of a pen. The Temple Mount is never mentioned. It is only called by the name al-Aqsa Mosque / Haram al Sharif. The name “Western Wall” is placed between quotation marks, to indicate that it is an invalid name: Al Buraq Wall is used without quotation marks. The graves of Jewish cemeteries are described as “Jewish fake graves.”

It is a radical anti-Semitic resolution: denying historical fact, claiming that what exists does not, presenting the history of Judaism and the Jews as lies. Accusing Jews of “planting Jewish fake graves” is the lie. It is saying that Judaism is a sham and Jews are liars and falsifiers.

        no thanks, no more NGOs or QUANGOs.

        how about we keep our money and if we need to talk to other nations we use our own elected govt instead of some unelected middleman with its own agenda

      • Have nothing in its stead. Countries cannot operate with one central iron fist.

    Anything with the name United Nations in front of it should be abandoned by civilized people. I’d love to see them bulldoze the UN building about 600 yards east, right into the East River.

      The Trump Organization would probably convert the buildings into residential and commercial use.

    How is it legal for us to be compelled to support this racist UN with our tax dollars?

    Surely this violates our rights?

    • Concerned Canadian

      What rights?

    It must be just the name ‘United Nations’ that impresses people.
