Why I hate UNESCO....

As Netanyahu says, this is just absurd...
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday slammed world culture organization UNESCO's decision to characterize the site of Rachel's Tomb as a Muslim mosque.

"The attempt to separate the nation of Israel from its cultural heritage is absurd," said the prime minister.

A statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office read, "It is unfortunate that an organization that was established with the goal of promoting the cultural preservation of historical sites around the world, is attempting due to political reasons to uproot the connection between the nation of Israel and its cultural heritage."

The PMO's statement came in response to a report publicized by UNESCO that referred to Rachel's Tomb as a mosque and requested that Israel remove Rachel's Tomb -near the West Bank city of Bethlehem - and the Cave of the Patriarchs - in Hebron- from the Israeli list of national heritage sites.

UNESCO's requests comes after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in March, according to Saudi paper Al Wattan, claimed that the al-Aksa Mosque, the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel’s Tomb “were not and never will be Jewish sites, but Islamic sites.”

There's an anti-Israel coalition coalescing as we speak composed of Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas, and Turkey. This augurs badly for peace.

Not only UNESCO but any agency connected with this corrupt, evil organization is dangerous and beneath contempt.

The United Nations is a failed state run by corrupt despots - no decent nation should have anything to do with the UN. It is disgusting.

I am proud of how our Prime Minister unequivically supports Israel. I am not Jewish in any way but common sense would say that Canadian support is exactly the right thing to do.

PS And thanks for continuing to put up these largely ignored news events Gay. It's important.
