UNESCO is on a roll and continues to pass resolutions aimed at undermining the Jewish conenction to the Land of Israel. The latest resolution passed today refers to Jerusalem in connection to Islam only roiling the Israeli government.
Danny Danon, the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations said the following:
“UNESCO embarrassed itself by marching to the tune of the Palestinian pipers. All attempts to deny our heritage, distort history and disconnect the Jewish people from our capital and our homeland are doomed to fail.”
The real question is not if the UNESCO vote matters or has teeth, none of these don’t, but with the voting membership clearly Arab what kind of impact does a clearly rigged vote really have?
One possiblity is that it lays the groundwork for the UN Security Council to take decisive action after the Novemebr 8th election. With 13 days and counting the UNESCO resolutions maybe the ammunition Obama will use to justify a non-veto in the Security Council.
