Another UN agency takes aim at Israel

Light Rail

This time it’s UNESCO issuing a report critical of Israel.

UNESCO is condemning Israel for what excavating in Jerusalem that, according to the report is damaging Islamic holy sites and Muslim artifacts and “endangering” the Old City. The report In particular, they are concerned about the building of a light rail system close to the Temple Mount.

Israeli’s foreign ministry was quick to slap back. Calling the report one sided for ignoring both the Jewish and Christian connections to Jerusalem. And for only viewing the Temple Mount as a Muslim holy site of worship.

In a statement, Foreign Ministry Director Dore Gold says, given the deliberate destruction by ISIS of artifacts throughout the Middle East, the report critical of Israel is “misplaced and hypocritical at best.”
