A United Nations birthday slap at Israel

A United Nations birthday slap at Israel

"I urge the worldwide community to condemn this decision in the harshest manner possible, and do everything in its power to rectify this error".

"Today there are more countries abstaining or supporting Israel than countries against Israel. Their refusal to agree to the outrageous charges leveled by the UNESCO Executive Board is a small but significant moral achievement for Israel and all purveyors of democracy within the worldwide community".

The Palestinian Authority (PA) praised a newly passed United Nations resolution which denies Israel's rights to Jerusalem, a report said.

The U.N. cultural body's resolution was approved by 22 member states, with 10 voting against and 23 abstaining.

Israel showed off its new F-35 stealth fighter jets recently delivered from the United States on Tuesday as part of an air show marking its annual Independence Day celebrations. "Israel will not sit by while the organization calls for the denial of our sovereignty in Jerusalem", Netanyahu stated. Also opposing it were Greece, Great Britain, Germany, Lithuania and the Netherlands.

Sam Warburton Lions captaincy against All Blacks leaked on Twitter
When coach Warren Gatland said that the British and Irish Lions face the toughest task in rugby when they play New Zealand this year, he was not exaggerating.

However, the current draft of the resolution still contains many red flags for Israel.

Wednesday's cut was the third time in recent months Israel reduced its United Nations budget over what it perceived as anti-Israel votes, putting the 2017 payments at $3.7 million instead of the original $11 million, an Israeli official said.

The UNESCO resolution reaffirmed "the importance of the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls for the three monotheistic religions", while accusing Israel of taking actions that have "altered, or purport to alter the character and status of the Holy City".

According to the resolution, the excavations are a violation of global law. These resolutions accuse Tel Aviv of "human rights violations in the occupied Syrian Golan" and the West Bank.

The Palestinians see Jerusalem as their future capital.

Rothstein said Tuesday: "This latest assault on Israel's claim to the Jewish people's holiest city will only serve to fuel further conflict, rather than justice and peace between Israelis and Palestinians".

Israel exerted heavy pressure on several European Union nations to abandon the deal and vote against the resolution.

"UNESCO has always been politicized and unfortunately has become a tool in the service of Palestinian propaganda against Israel". UNESCO proclaimed that "Israel is occupying Jerusalem".

He stressed that "despite the desperate attempts of the Israeli government to undermine Palestine resolutions at UNESCO, the world nevertheless voted in favor of our resolutions, choosing to stand on the side of what is right in the face of injustice, occupation and its illegitimate policies".

The resolution, passed by 22 votes to 10 on Tuesday (2 May), branded Israel's annexation of the eastern city as a violation of worldwide law, mirroring a UN Security Council resolution passed in December.
