UNESCO's Anti-Jewish Policy Due to Israel's Ambivalence

From my visit/ascending to Har Habayit almost two years ago
There has been a big hue and cry here in Israel about the UNESCO's Anti-Jewish Statements re: Israeli/Jewish connection to our holy sites by the very same people who are complicit in perpetuating the problem.
UNESCO adopts resolution ignoring Jewish ties to Temple Mount
Resolution refers to Temple Mount area solely as Al-Aksa Mosque/Al-Haram Al Sharif, except for two references to the Western Wall Plaza that were put in parenthesis.
Our Jewish group waits while non-Jewish tourists are allowed
ahead of us, fewer restrictions for them
The hypocrisy really annoys me. The same people, such as Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and MK Yair Lapid, who have no problem with the rulings forbidding Jewish worship and easy access to Har Habayit complain about the UNESCO resolution.

This terrible Israeli policy, and the handing to the Wakf "the keys" soon after our miraculous 1967 victory is the reason all sorts of foreign/international and even some Israeli groups have de-judaized our holiest spot.

This anti-Jewish policy is supported by successive Israeli Governments.
"Announcement and Warning
According to Torah Law, entering the Temple Mount Area is strictly forbidden due to the holiness of the site."
In actuality, this is not entirely true. Only one tiny section is too holy to enter, and there are easy to accomplish purification tasks one can do beforehand. And if it is so holy, then why allow others to defile it with ease?

Since this Israeli Law has been in effect for decades, why should our politicians be so outraged? We've deserted our holiest site and given it to a bunch of dangerous anti-Israel terrorists!!

Cornelius Tacticus, the famous Roman historian (who had no love of Jews) and lived from year 56 CE (approximately) to year 120 CE said:

“Much of Judea is thickly studded with villages, and the Jews have towns as well.
Their capital is Jerusalem. Here stood their Temple with its boundless riches.”

The Western World (page 141) by Pearson Custom Publishing, year 2009 CE

The Histories by Tacitus, The Jews (Book 5), paragraph 8 of 13.

{1} Muslims are LYING when they deny that Jews trace their historical origins to the Land of Israel.

{2} Muslims are LYING when they deny that Jerusalem is the historical capital of the Jewish state.

{3} Muslims are LYING when they deny that the Jewish Temple existed in Jerusalem.

{4} Notice that Tacticus mentioned Judea, NOT Palestine.

{5} Tacticus never mentioned the Palestinian people, even though he wrote
much about Jews and their land, because there were no Palestinian people in his time.

Mr Cohen--I am so offended by the way you hijack other people's blogs in your comments that I just never read anything you say.

Batya Medad said...

Chana, amen. He is getting very tedious and I've complained, even deleted comments.

Mr. Cohen said...

Batya Medad, it is time for us to say goodbye to each other.

I should have started my own blog a long time ago, but I thought that is was not necessary. Now I realize that it is necessary.

Have a Chag Kasher VeSameach, and good-bye!

Good luck, and enjoy.
Chag Sameach!
