Last October, UNESCO (the UN Educational, Social, and Cultural Organization), was widely rebuked and ridiculed for passing a one-sided, hypocritical resolution that denied the millennia-old Jewish link to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Judaism’s holiest site. Sponsored by seven Arab nations—Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, and Sudan—the resolution failed to garner a majority. This marked a significant setback for those seeking to use the UN to internationalize the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Before and after the vote, nations reversed their decisions and apologized for supporting the measure. Even UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova criticized the resolution.
