Weekly Commentary: UNESCO decision reminder world can’t be relied on for
rights in Jerusalem
Dr. Aaron Lerner 14 October 2016

UNESCO’s vote on Thursday that disregards Judaism’s historic connection to
the Temple Mount and casts doubt on the link between Judaism and the Western
Wall does indeed, as Palestinian officials noted, send a clear message to
Israel from the international community.

Reminder: All the various schemes to relinquish Israeli sovereignty over
portions of Jerusalem hinge on the efficacy of third party intervention to
insure the preservation of Jewish rights in the city.

And the “clear message from the international community” is that it will not
respect Jewish rights in the city.

Not even Jewish rights at the Western Wall that UNESCO relegated to the
Moslems.

I have no illusions.

While the people who have been pushing all these years for Israel to
relinquish sovereignty over portions of Jerusalem in exchange for some
half-baked scheme won’t be fazed by the UNESCO vote, the vote serves to
further convince the Israeli majority that such schemes are indeed downright
silly.
