Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday issued a response to a UNESCO resolution passed earlier this week which denied Jewish claims to the Temple Mount and Western Wall, slamming it as “absurd” and ignoring a “fundamental part of human history.”

“The decision made by the United Nations is absurd,” a statement from the Prime Minster’s Office reads.

    When Ntanyahu himself fails to assert Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount, and the Jewish right to pray on the Temple Mount, what international repercussions does he expect?

    The 135 AD Bar Kochba revolt ended with Jewish armies obliterated by Hadrian’s legions. The remaining Jewish survivors were starved and tortured to death, murdered, sold into slavery, fleeing and forced off ancestral lands as punishment for the rebellion, while the Rabbi Akiva was skinned alive. The Romans changed the name of Jerusalem to Aeila Capitolina. Jerusalem became a pagan city that Jews were forbidden to enter and Judea and Samaria were renamed Syria-Palestina in an attempt to distance the Jewish connection to Ha Eretz Israel.
    Before Hadrian it was the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Greeks, and the Egyptians. In 2016 the it’s UNESCO and the United Nations. Same old wine. New bottles. Here’s a message for the UN. We are the Jews. Israel is our nation. Jerusalem is our capital. We will not be put down.

    The UN, whose majority of members are hostile to the Jewish State, has stooped to the level of denying Israel and the Jewish People their history.

    That hypocritical organization can erase, alter and rewrite history to fit their jaded agenda but they cannot reclaim it for the truth remains indelible for all time.

  • UNESCO is corrupt, is a fake organization。 Do not take this organization seriously.

  • The palastinians are pests. The people Israel not only owns the temple mount but a new temple will begin. Solomans temple shall be built and that blasphemous gold round building the arabs call the devils den will be brought down to rubble.The people israel should kick the teeth of those who come against them. God will always fight and win every battle. What are they waiting for. Repeat 1967 people Israel….this time wipe out the arabs…the pals…those who reject the God of israel are condemned already.
    Thank you peace be with you the Son of God be revealed and accepted…repent and turn from wickedness and your God will never deny you. Receive spiritual salvation from the Lord God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob (Israel).

  • We are tired of hearing anything from anyone associated with the U.N. The U.N. is a parasitic, fraudulent and criminal enterprise dominated by our mortal enemies. The U.N. cannot create or modify states, it can only recommend and so can other nations only recommend and not create a state that never existed before in history. If they want an Arab-Palestinian state, it already exists, it is Jordan which has taken 78% of Jewish allocated land. They also have the land the Arabs Countries confiscated from the Jewish people which is 6 times the size of Israel. They also have over 5 million sq. mi. they received after WWI.
    We are tired of stupid post-colonialist rhetoric. We are not ‘colonists’ and Arabs do not have the right to murder us in the name of ‘resistance’ or beheading Jewish Rabbi’s in Jerusalem’s Har Nof Synagogue. Talking this way reveals you as moral imbeciles. They train their children to be suicide bombers and terrorists. The Arabs are the colonialists, they have colonized the whole Middle East, and they are well on their way to colonize Europe.
    You can not recognize a State and people that never existed and that has no borders, no single government, and no economy. They are not even trusted by the Arab states either.
