The U.S. Withdraws From Anti-Christian & Anti-Semitic UNESCO
Thursday Morning the United States withdrew from UNESCO, The United
Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. While the
press release cited the organization’s  anti-Israel bias, in truth the
organization is both anti-Semitic and anti-Christian as it denies the
history of both faiths as related in their scriptures

The release issued by State Department SPOX Heather Nauert says in part:

        On October 12, 2017, the Department of State notified UNESCO
        Director-General Irina Bokova of the U.S. decision to withdraw
        from the organization and to seek to establish a permanent
        observer mission to UNESCO. This decision was not taken lightly,
        and reflects U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the
        need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing
        anti-Israel bias at UNESCO….Pursuant to Article II(6) of the
        UNESCO Constitution, U.S. withdrawal will take effect on
        December 31, 2018. The United States will remain a full member
        of UNESCO until that time.

In recent months, the Paris-based UNESCO declared the Old City of Hebron
an endangered Palestinian world heritage site. It has also passed
several resolutions ignoring Jewish and Christian ties to Jerusalem It’s
time for Christians throughout the world to wake up and smell the
hummus. The Arab world is trying to deny Christians a connection to
your holy sites (does that make you feel Jewish?).

Keep in mind that these ancient sites couldn’t be Palestinian Heritage
sites because there was never a Muslim nation of Palestine. Neither
Jerusalem nor Hebron were ever part of a Palestinian state because there
never was a Palestinian state.

After the Bar Kochba revolt in 135 CE, the Romans punished the Judeans
(Jews) for revolting a second time in sixty years by changing the name
of their country from Judea to Syria Palaestina (after the ancient enemy
of the Jews, the Philistines who were destroyed a thousand years
before). At the same time, they changed the name of the holy city of
Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina (literally Capitoline Hill of the House of
Aelius).After the Romans threw out many of the Jews, the holy land was
ruled by the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and finally the
British Mandate.

The Romans threw out many of the Jews, the holy land was ruled by
the Byzantine Empire (also known as the Ottoman Empire, and finally the
British mandate before the holy land once again became the Jewish State
in 1948. Note during the period of the British Mandate both Jews and
Muslims living in the holy land were called Palestinians.

During the period of 135 CE through 1948 when Jordan occupied Jerusalem,
there were large populations of Jews in Jerusalem. In fact beginning
with the earliest information available (1844), there were more Jews in
Jerusalem than any other faith.

Source: Manashe Harrel, “The Jewish Presence in Jerusalem through the
Ages” in Sinai and Oestericcher, eds., Jerusalem, John Day, 1974.

Not only do the ancient Greek, Roman and Muslim text describe Jerusalem
as Jewish and the place where Solomon’s Temple stood, more recently
the Official 1925 Supreme Moslem Council (Wakf) Guide Book To Al-Ḥaram
Al-Sarif, recognized the presence of the Jewish Temples atop the Mount.
 Shown below is paragraph two on page four, which says, “It’s [the
Temple Mount] identity with the site of Solomon’s Temple is beyond
dispute.”  Now 90 years later the head of the Wakf is disputing it.



But according to UNESCO it’s a Palestinian historical site,  not only
ignoring the Temple Mount’s Jewish history but ignoring what it says in
the Christian Gospels which pre-date Islam. For example, in Mark 12:40
and Luke 20:47 Jesus accused the Temple authorities of thieving and this
time names poor widows as their victims, going on to provide evidence of
this in Mark 12:42 and Luke 21:2. Dove sellers were selling doves that
were sacrificed by the poor who could not afford grander sacrifices and
specifically by women. Note: Luke refers to the writer of the Gospel of
Luke, NOT the last Jedi.

According to Mark 11:16, Jesus then put an embargo on people carrying
any merchandise through the Temple—a sanction that would have disrupted
all commerce. In in the Gospel of John 2:15-16 Jesus refers to the
Jerusalem Temple as “my Father’s house”, thus, making a claim to being
the Son of God.

        He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned
        their tables; and to those who were selling the doves He said,
        “Take these things away; stop making My Father’s house a place
        of business.”

Overturning The Money Changer Tables

As for UNESCO’s Hebron decision, it should be abhorrent to any person
whose faith believes in what non-Jews call “The Old Testament.” The
piece of land housing the Cave of the Patriarchs was the first land
owned by Jews in the Holy Land. It was purchased nearly four millennia
ago by Abraham, as a burial place for his wife Sarah.

As described in Genesis chapter 23, before Abraham purchased the land
that became the Cave of the Patriarchs, he rejected the Hittites’ offer
to receive the land as a gift. He even overpaid for the land so there
would never be a doubt or a complaint that it is a Jewish-owned
territory. Eventually, Abraham, his son Isaac and daughter-in-law
Rebekah, His grandson Jacob and one of his wives Leah, and
great-grandson Esau’s head (long story) were also buried in the cave.

Hebron had been a Jewish city since biblical times through today (with a
break from 1929-1967). The Jews had owned that cave and land in the city
land until they were massacred and forced out by Arab terrorists in
1929.  For most of that time, the majority of the population were Jews.
>From that 1929 massacre until the Six-Day-War in 1967, Hebron was a
Jewish city occupied by the Arabs.

UNESCOHebron’s Arab occupation began on a Friday evening in August 88
years ago when a group of Arab terrorists massacred the Jews of the city
while the British (who ruled over the Holy Land) knew what was happening
but didn’t lift a finger to prevent the carnage.

Just as their action regarding the Temple Mount, UNESCO’s decision to
recognize the Cave of Patriarchs as a Palestinian heritage site is a
falsification of history. It is not simply an issue of the UN being
anti-Israel. UNESCO’s recent decisions stem from hypocrisy,
Antisemitism, and Anti-Christianity. It is a denial of both Jewish and
Christian Faith.
