On Wednesday, October 12, 2016, UNESCO voted on the status of the Temple Mount and the Kotel HaMa’aravi (the Western Wall) in Jerusalem, declaring both to be exclusively Muslim sites, thereby denying Judaism’s 3,000-year connection to the site (and Christianity’s two-millennium connection as well).
This lie is one perpetuated by the late Yasser Arafat starting in the summer of 200 and repeated regularly during the second Intifada (Intifada al-‘Aqsa); it has been repeated with constancy by Arafat’s successor, Mahmoud Abbas.
The following report, based on textual and archaeological evidence from the Biblical and Second Temple periods, should put the lie to Arafat’s and Abbas’ words, and demonstrate the extreme political bias shown by the UNESCO vote.
