UNESCO recognizes East Jerusalem as Palestinian. Vote infuriated Israel

dome-of-the-rockUNESCO’s executive board on Tuesday approved a resolution recognising the holy sites of occupied East Jerusalemn as part of the heritage of Palestine in a move that has infuriated the Israeli regime.

The text, which touches on the Israeli occupation’s management of Palestinian religious sites, has infuriated Israel by referring throughout to the Al Aqsa mosque compound in east Jerusalem’s Old City – Islam’s third holiest site – only by its Muslim names: Al Aqsa and Al Haram Al Sharif.

The site is also revered by Jews as the Temple Mount which according to Jewish belief housed the First and Second Temples.

Palestine’s deputy ambassador to UNESCO, Mounir Anastas, told reporters the resolution “reminds Israel that they are the occupying power in east Jerusalem and it asks them to stop all their violations,” including archaeological excavations around religious sites.

Israel claims the resolution denies the Jewish connection to holy sites in the city. The text, entitled Occupied Palestine, however does “affirm the importance of the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls for the three monotheistic religions”.

The board adopted the measure by consensus in its morning session at Paris-based UNESCO. A draft form of the resolution had already been approved by a commission last week. Among vetoing states were Germany, Estonia, the US, Lithuania, the Netherlands and the UK. India and Greece, which have traditionally supported Palestine at the UN, abstained.

It is the second time this year that UNESCO has been the arena of tensions between the Israelis and Arab countries.

In April, the organisation passed a resolution condemning “Israeli aggressions and illegal measures against the freedom of worship and Muslims’ access to the Al Aqsa Mosque”.

Israel last week suspended its ties with UNESCO over the draft resolution. The regime had already suspended its funding to UNESCO when Palestinian membership was approved, along with the United States, which used to provide 22 per cent of the agency’s budget.

“We won’t negotiate and we won’t take part in these ugly games,” the regime’s ambassador to UNESCO, Carmel Shama-Hacohen, said after the ratification. “There is no place for these games in UNESCO”.

The longstanding dispute is also linked to Israel’s refusal to grant visas to UNESCO experts to go in the country and assess the level of preservation of the holy sites in Jerusalem.

Elias Sanbar, Palestinian ambassador to UNESCO, said this refusal to allow a UNESCO mission was a “very big problem.”

“The aim of the mission was not to say that Israel was an occupying power or not, the whole world knows it,” he said. “The aim was to say: according to the field of competence of UNESCO, are the monuments and historical sites of UNESCO well-preserved, and if restored, well-restored according to the rules of restoration?”

On this issue, Shama-Hacohen said “there will not be any mission to Jerusalem under political decisions -with the words ‘occupying power’ with false allegations of Israel, we will never agree to such a mission. Jerusalem is an open city. Jerusalem is a transparent city.”

East Jerusalem is considered ‘occupied’ by most countries of the world, including the United States, and most foreign embassies to Israel are based in Tel Aviv,

Israel and the Palestinian authority are not members of the executive board of UNESCO.

  • Oh Yeah

    UNESCO resolution regarding the existence of Jerusalem Temple is a decision to changes history!

    How come that UNESCO have the right to changes history?

    Why UNESCO don’t take a resolution regarding the Aghia Sophia (Hagia Sophia) in Constantinople the Christian patriarchal basilica (church), to restore it to its former status?

    Did the muslims donated a huge bagsheesh to UNESCO in order to changes history suitable for the muslim world?

    No one asked the christian world point of view regarding this particular attitude toward changes of history!

    • man-o-war

      What is Constantinople? Go ahead and cry some more. Not fair!!! We all know the treatment of Palestinians has been nothing but fair and just.

      • Oh Yeah

        Did I mentioned any Palestinians in my comment?
        “What is Constantinople?”, a change of history by Muslims – not by UNESCO.

        Why should I cry, this resolution was approved by only 24 out of 58 member states…..

        • man-o-war

          Oh, my apologizes. It was more anti-Muslim focused, forgot you were one of the xenophobic religious bigots, not Palestinian denier.

          Constantinople is just in history books now, right?

          • Oh Yeah

            Palestinians are Muslims as well as Christians, to which group you belong?

            Anyway why is it of yours?

          • man-o-war

            Wait….I though you weren’t talking about Palestinians? My “group” now is agnostic, my mother is Shi’ite and my father is Sunni, raised in a Sunni village. Went to a Christian school in Lebanon and attended Sunday school in the US. Would you also like my Lebanese ID#?

          • Oh Yeah

            And you expect that I will believe your fuzzy clarification.

            As far as I know it make no difference if your mother is Shi’ite and your father is Sunni, and that you have been raised in a Sunni village.

            You are not a Christian just because you want to Christian school in Lebanon.

            Did you converted to a specific Christian church?

            Did you read “WHY IS IT DIFFICULT FOR A MUSLIM TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?” by Abd al-Masih?
            [http://grace-and-truth.org/AM-WhyDifficultForMuslimToBecomeChristian-Booklet.htm]

          • man-o-war

            Man you’re a moron. You asked what “religious group” I belong, why the hell did you ask if you won’t believe or that it makes no difference? Not the first time you’ve asked.

            Never said I was a Christian, where did you get that from? I clearly stated that I’m agnostic.

            No, I didn’t read your religious bigotry propaganda and I don’t plan on it.

          • Oh Yeah

            Your fuzzy clarification – My “group” now is agnostic,, but why you add the “my mother is Shi’ite and my father is Sunni, raised in a Sunni village. Went to a Christian school in Lebanon and attended Sunday school in the US.” when you never was a Christian….

            You Shia and Sunni are really loving each other, and hating the Christian world.

            The rumors what Iraqi Shia soldiers doing with the Iraqi Sunnis from Mosul is alarming.

          • man-o-war

            You’ve asked twice about my group, just trying to give you background on my religious upbringing. You seemed interested, again you’ve asked twice now.
            If you think its irrelevant feel free to ignore it.

            “when you never was a Christian….” again, never claimed to be Christian. You don’t have to be Christian to go to a Christian school or Sunday school. You can even go sit inside church and listen to service. Crazy, I know!

            How am I hating on the Christian world? Because I went to a Christian school or Sunday school?

          • Oh Yeah

            As you say, there are scores of people who wouldn’t shut up about what they think. Even when nobody’s asking.

            ANTI-ZIONISM IS THE NEW ANTI-SEMITISM, I lost count of how many times the word ‘Zionists’ have been used on this forum with a banal explanation that they do not feel bad about Jews (anti-Semitic), they are just anti-Zionists…..

            Nor is this a problem in Europe alone.
            A 2015 survey of North American Jewish college students by Brandeis University found that three-quarters of respondents had been exposed to anti-Semitic rhetoric.
            One third had reported incidents of harassment because they were Jewish. Much of the intimidation on campus is stirred by “Israel Apartheid” weeks and the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) campaign against Israel. These have become what Easter was in the Middle Ages, a time for attacks against Jews.

            What then is anti-Semitism?
            It is not a coherent set of beliefs but a set of contradictions. Before the Holocaust, Jews were hated because they were poor and because they were rich; because they were communists and because they were capitalists; because they kept to themselves and because they infiltrated everywhere; because they clung tenaciously to ancient religious beliefs and because they were rootless cosmopolitans who believed nothing.

            Anti-semitism is a virus that survives by mutating.
            In the Middle Ages, Jews were hated because of their religion. In the 19th and 20th centuries they were hated because of their race.
            Today they are hated because of their nation state, Israel.

            Anti-Zionism is the new anti-Semitism.

            We could post pictures of many tomb stones of ‘others’, destroyed usually by small gangs of kids with no respect for anything, even of warriors. This does not mean only Jews suffer from the disrespect. It happens from time to time in many places. The ‘general idea’ that a cemetery should be a quiet place of sanctity for the bodies of the human souls which left it, and ended the suffering experiences of a lifetime, doesn’t enter the minds of those who have no such feelings; or any concept that humans really are all the same.

          • Oh Yeah

            The Non-Jewish Stake in the Holocaust Mythology – Why the Continued Success of a Failed Ideology?

            Holocaust historian Leon Poliakov pointed out in the late 1970s that there are no documents to prove that the Nazis ever had any plan to murder the Jews of Europe. He wrote: “[T]he campaign to exterminate the Jews, as regards its conception as well as many other essential aspects, remains shrouded in darkness. Inferences, psychological considerations, and third- or fourth-hand reports enable us to reconstruct its development with considerable accuracy. Certain details, however, must remain forever unknown. The three or four people chiefly involved in the actual drawing up of the plan for total extermination are dead and no documents have survived; perhaps none ever existed.”[1] In short, the “evidence” that “proves” the existence of an alleged Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews is simply the guesswork of Holocaust historians. Hard documentary proof is missing.

            The late Holocaust historian Lucy Dawidowicz would presumably concur with Poliakov. In her The War Against the Jews: 1933-1945, she revealed how weak and flimsy the evidence that supports the traditional view of the Final Solution (the alleged premeditated Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews) really is. Dawidowicz admitted “the abundant documents of the German dictatorship have yielded no written order by Hitler to murder the Jews…”[2] Even more importantly, she conceded there is no documentary evidence to prove her orthodox version of the Final Solution: “If Mein Kampf is the terminus ad quem for the conception of the Final Solution, does its beginning indeed go back to November 1918, as Hitler himself claimed? It is a hazardous task to construct a chronology of the evolution of this idea in Hitler’s mind. The historical evidence is sparse and no doubt would be inadmissible as courtroom evidence. The very idea of the destruction of the Jews as a political goal demanded, when Hitler first began to advocate it, camouflage and concealment. Its later consummation demanded, within limits, secrecy. Consequently, there is a paucity of documents, and even those we have handicap the search for definitive evidence because of the problem of esoteric language.”[3]

            There are many stories like mine. The civil war caused a lot of Lebanese to flee. I’m sure we will hear the same stories in the future due to the Syrian civil war.

          • Oh Yeah

            Is it “Syrian civil war.” or is it the liquidation of terrorists that the Russians helping (to a grade of war crimes) Al-Assad and some Lebanese forces?

          • man-o-war

            Yeah, it is. #Clueless, just because outside forces get involved doesn’t take away from how it started. It was a Sunni uprising against it’s minority rulers. It was instigated and fed by outside forces, but the anger has always been there.

            Agnostic is the way to go for anyone that is remotely spiritual but knows that all religious groups are total crap. Religion is way to political and seems more about mind control than spiritual enlightenment.

            By the way the world get it’s oil from other countries than “out of there”….

            The world reduced its need for oil to the grade that Norwegian oil production is so low that they had to dismiss many workers.
            Putin can’t make big money on oil and Venezuela is having the same problem.

            EU subsidizes every one that invest in a new car powered by electric.

          • 5thDrawer

            Happy I made it convenient for you. But weirdness is everywhere in this ‘new world’.
            Have you heard about the folks who are afraid of the magnetic fields around every wire?
            But, strangely, that some folks use magnetic fields to treat injuries?
            Because of the distances, I’d buy a ‘hybrid’ … if I could afford anything newer than 10 yr-old rust-buckets. (well, it’s actually 16 now – do my own repairs)
            As I use less and less electric, my bills go higher these days. I wasn’t allowed a ‘new efficient’ AC ‘rebate’ because I don’t use enough of it. The 8 days I felt I really needed it this year, really boosted this month’s latent bill.
            I did get the ‘super-efficient’ gas furnace, and the 2 damn fans in it run almost constantly – and I can’t repair stupid circuit-boards – so need a ‘repair contract’ too.
            I have the misfortune to live where some idiots didn’t want the ‘new clean gas’ electric plants near where they live, and to get their votes the ‘Party’, which had boosted what sounded like a wise concept, then listen to one ‘protest-group’ and dismantled them – even the one that was ready to start producing – cost ‘us’ poor slobs an extra billion in legal fees and suits by the ‘privatized’ electric companies, as well as the cost of rebuilding them miles away for those companies, which means ‘power-loss’ additions over miles of wire, and more power boosting transformers to get it where it’s needed in the vertical human-storage units.
            The ‘Then-Premier’ snuck out the back door quickly, handed it all to a woman who likes the Power-politics, wouldn’t allow deeper investigations against her party, and THEN the idiots voted her in anyway – WHILE only one city in the whole Province buys it’s electricity from the Province next door at about half the cost because it runs on water. (it’s allowed, ya know ..)
            (p.s. We paid for reversing that river-flow too with Federal funding.)
            Of course I suspect Americans have their short spatulate banker’s dirty fingers in all of this … and they buy the cheaper power which that Province wants to sell.
            It’s not only Muslims who can’t figure out who to vote for, for sure. Believe me.
            It’s sheer luck if one with a brain pops up to be ‘Boss’.

          • Oh Yeah

            Are you out your mind, or you are just so stupid to hand out you entire life story on the internet.
            Once more you come with your ‘interesting’ anecdotes, this time about some “folks who are afraid of the magnetic fields around every wire”….
            Why should I care that you have so bad economy? It’s your life – what goes around comes around.
            Stop feeling sorry about yourself, it’s your own car problem that you can’t afford anything newer than 10 yr-old rust-buckets. You drive a car that contributing to environmental disaster.
            0h yeah you “have the misfortune to live where some idiots didn’t want the ‘new clean gas’ electric plants ..” poor you.

    UNESCO – “forged by two world wars in less than a generation in 1945″ …
    Paris, 14 October, 2016—“As I have stated on many occasions, and most recently during the 40th session of the World Heritage Committee, Jerusalem is the sacred city of the three monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam.”
    “Mobilizing for education: so that every child, boy or girl, has access to quality education as a fundamental human right and as a prerequisite for human development.”
    “Building intercultural understanding: through protection of heritage and support for cultural diversity. UNESCO created the idea of World Heritage to protect sites of outstanding universal value.”
    “Pursuing scientific cooperation: such as early warning systems for tsunamis or trans-boundary water management agreements, to strengthen ties between nations and societies.”
    “Protecting freedom of expression: an essential condition for democracy, development and human dignity.”

    And yes, no favouritism in those statements. Unless you’re anti-Education&Democracy, I suppose.
    Took a long time to get it back on track.

          It will be so calming and soul-filling an experience, with certainly, that the ‘exit’ door will need a number, and a planned date, to get to.

(You didn’t show every night … at any specific time )
            Aslo it’s more boring even, than the ones of “stabbings, car ramming, weapons factories or a barrage of rocks” … so he yawns reflexively.
            AND it’s true, he’s not the government there, so he can’t do anything about it.
            I don’t know why he thinks you are an idiot … perhaps because you keep trying to wake him up, just like the kids from the flashy grenades, and he’s not happy about that either.

          • Rudy1947

            East Jerusalem,

            “The Hebrew-language video, which was filmed on the evening of September 28 by a Palestinian resident of the town, was released on Sunday by the Israeli daily, Haaretz.
            In the recording, the neighbourhood, home to around 16,000 people, is quiet, raising questions as to why border police decided to practise there with the risk of provoking tensions. One officer is seen teaching another how to operate the grenade.
            “Throw lower,” he tells him. The trainee officer detonates the grenade between the
            homes and is praised for a “good job” before he walks away with the rest of the officers.

            “As you can see, he is teaching him how to throw a stun grenade between the houses rather than taking him [the trainee officer] to an open area,” the resident says in the video as he is filming..”

        So she makes everyone ‘upset’ because she states the truths. So what does ‘diplomacy’ mean other than skirting around the simple truths??
        “Naturally, UN staff, including the director-general, have the right and responsibility to speak out on issues that represent the core of the mission of the organization. The UNESCO resolution in question focused on the violations of the Israeli occupation forces that refused to meet with the UNESCO delegation visiting Jerusalem. While Israelis have a right to call the area in question any name they want, they can’t force it on the world community, which has an obligation to treat the area in accordance with international law as an occupied area.”

    Next step is for UNESCO to declare that the city belongs to the Roman Empire and that its official name is still Aelia Capitolina and not Jerusalem. All politicians will be very happy and the three religions will surely bless the wise declaration. FINALLY PEACE AT LAST!!!!

    UNESCO head’s attempt to ease Israeli outrage backfires..

    “A Haaretz article from May 2015 stated there was no connection between Al-Haram al-Sharif and the Jewish temples. While they did not question the existence of the First Temple, Israeli journalists Ruth Schuster and Ran Shapira wrote in the same Israeli daily in October that year, “Archaeologists cannot conclusively point to stones they know comprised the Second Temple, let alone the first one.”

    Congrats to UNESCO. They did something thought impossible: they united the Jewish people in their contempt.
