Just in time for Hannukah and Christmas, the United Nations General Assembly has been at it again: spitting on history; ignoring archeological artifacts dating back thousands of years; insulting Jews and Christians; and disgracing itself to pander to Muslims … once again.
With so many in the world suffering from poverty, with more refugees than ever struggling to find a safe place to live, with whole communities on every continent withering under the worst droughts, flooding or storm conditions ever, and, thousands across the globe dying of starvation … the very well fed and pampered Ambassadors of the UN’s 193-member nations have been hard at work.
Last week, they voted 129 to 11 to disavow Jewish and Christian links to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem (Israel’s capital) and recognize it only and refer to it only henceforth by its Muslim name, al-Haram al-Sharif.
Never mind that “Jerusalem” is cited, praised and prayed to 669 times in the Tanakh (Hebrew Old Testament Bible); forget about the 149 references, ties, events and references to “Jerusalem” in the Christian New Testament; and overlook the truth … that the Islamic Koran doesn’t mention “Jerusalem” at all …. not even ONCE!!
“Well before Muhammad was born, Christians actively prayed and worshiped on the Temple Mount. In the early 6th Century, a Byzantine basilica was built where the Al-Aqsa Mosque is situated today. This is documented not only by Christian historians, but also by modern archeologists,” Christian researcher Lela Gilbert wrote in 2014.
Of course, the proof of Jewish historic ties to the Temple Mount, dating back 5,000 years, is the Western Wall of the Second Temple, visited, prayed at and sometimes literally cried over … a truly holy site for millions of Jewish (and Christian) faithful and tourists … and every world leader who visits Israel.
“The Temple Mount holds significance for Christians as the place where Jesus issued his challenge against the Temple authorities, an act which can be seen as leading directly to his arrest and crucifixion,” explains the Go Jerusalem guidebook.
Certainly seems to be a real and an important Christian and Jewish historic and religiously significant site to me.
But not to 129 UN member-states.
Because the Palestinians want it ALL .
The resolution passed by the General Assembly was a Palestinian Authority initiative.
” The text, referred to as the “Jerusalem resolution,” is part of a push by the Palestinian Authority and the Arab states across the UN system to rebrand Judaism’s most holy site as an exclusively Islamic one,’ according to the Jerusalem Post.
By the way, the countries voting AGAINST the latest Palestinian motion of hate: Canada, Czech Republic, Guatemala, Hungary, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, United States.

(Fascinating too to see which “civilized” Western nations abstained. Abstained … when a Palestinian/Muslim bloc .. just before Christmas … tries to deny Christian/Jewish links to the site where Christ walked, where Christ preached, where Christ challenged the leaders/money changers in the Temple??? Abstained??? COWARDS!! SHAME!!)
Every nation knows it’s all part of a Palestinian-led FALSE effort to claim sole Muslim historic/religious rights to the Temple Mount … and, of course, denigrate Israel.
In fact, last Friday alone, the UN General assembly passed SIX Resolutions condemning Israel: it’s almost a regularly scheduled UN event, pushed by the Palestinians, Iraq, Iran … well, I’m sure you understand the objective.
You can read the UN’s version of what happened here: https://www.un.org/press/en/2021/ga12390.doc.htm. Note how one-sided the perspective is and how, already, Temple Mount is no longer included in the UN terminology.
What a waste of time, effort and focus that, in the real world, leads to nothing more than more division, more conflict and more hate.
The UN continues to disgrace itself … kneeling before the Arab bloc, its 56 Muslim states and other nations bought by oil money.
As I’ve written before, the Palestinian top “leadership” … too many of them corrupt promulgators of ignorance and hate or just plain and simple violent criminal terrorists … are their own worst enemies.
If only they spent as much time coming up with realistic proposals for peace, efforts at reducing poverty, ignorance and conflict as they do on organizing, promoting and pushing anti-Israel hate wherever they can … especially the UN.
No wonder it is almost 16 years now since the Palestinian people were allowed to vote in a national election.
Happily, a growing number of Arab nations have openly recognized and joined hands, in some cases quite warmly, with Israel, while other former Arab/Muslim enemy nations … more than many realize … are quietly welcoming, co-operating and strengthening ties with the Jewish state.
And turning away from the ever-whining, intransigent and corrupted Palestinians.
Today, as I post this topic, Israeli Prime Minister is being welcomed by a Guard of Honour in Abu Dahbi, United Arab Emirates. The walk to peace, mutual respect and co-operation IS progressing.
Except at the UN … where Muslim hate now regularly insults, assaults and besmirches Jewish and Christian beliefs, rights and now, historic sights.
While beseeching us to increase our aid to clean up messes they have largely created.
Let them get it from the Muslim/Palestinian anti-Christian, anti-Jewish bloc at the UN.
I hope my Jewish readers had a wonderful Hannukah … especially in Jerusalem and at the Temple Mount, where Christian believers will also continue to pray and celebrate … despite what the UN says
At the Temple Mount … where King David reigned, and Jesus delivered his message.
(Pass it on! Send a link of this Blog to others, so they too can know what has been going on at the UN … but somehow downplayed or missed completely by the CBC, the BBC and Al Jazeera!)
