The UN’s denial of Jewish roots, even in the most clearly Jewish sites, legitimizes jihadist terror.
How do the UN and those who engineer its anti-Israel resolutions and campaigns justify promoting a twisted version of history that erases the Jewish tradition?
In the UN’s version of events, how do they justify the massacre of Jews at their holiest sites, such as the cave in Hebron purchased by the first Jew, Abraham, to bury his wife, the first Jewess, Sarah?
Watch this short video on the UN’s dangerous path, as this organization and its agencies throw the Bible and other history books into the garbage.
Netanyahu read from the Bible to demonstrate that UNESCO’s resolution on Hebron negated religion, history and the facts.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu read passages from the Bible during Sunday’s weekly Cabinet meeting as a refutation of Friday’s resolution passed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Committee designating the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Hebron a Palestinian heritage site.
“I would like to read from Genesis 23:16-19: ‘And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the hearing of the children of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant…And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre–the same is Hebron–in the land of Canaan. And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a burying-place by the children of Heth,’” Netanyahu read.
“The connection between the Jewish People and Hebron and the Tomb of the Patriarchs is one of purchase and of history which may be without parallel in the history of peoples,” Netanyahu declared.
“Of course this did not prevent the UNESCO World Heritage Committee last Friday from passing yet another delusional resolution which determined that the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the same Cave of Machpelah, is a Palestinian heritage site,” the Israeli premier derided the resolution.
Netanyahu explained that in wake of this resolution, he has decided to cut an additional $1 million from Israel’s UN membership dues and transfer the funds to the establishment of “The Museum of the Heritage of the Jewish People in Kiryat Arba and Hebron.” The money will also serve additional heritage initiatives related to Hebron.
He tasked Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage Ze’ev Elkin with submitting a proper proposal on this matter.
“Against UNESCO’s denial, Israel will present to the world the historical truth and the Jewish People’s deep connection – of thousands of years – to Hebron just as we did with UNESCO’s other delusional decision regarding the absence of a connection to Jerusalem,” Netanyahu vowed.
After UNESCO previously passed Muslim-sponsored resolutions denying the Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the Old City, Israel reduced its UN dues.
“Therefore today I have instructed that procedures be completed for the construction of the Kedem Center for displaying the historical and archaeological findings for the City of David,” Netanyahu said of the new museum on the Jewish people’s ancient history in Jerusalem. “This will be an impressive structure with extensive displays. The entire world will see the truth and the first visitors whom I will invite there will be UNESCO and UN delegations.”
The UNESCO resolution characterized the site as facing danger, which directly contradicts facts on the ground.
This designation attempts to eliminate the Jewish people’s millennia-long connection to the sites, at which the founders of the Jewish religion are buried.

Speaking before an enthusiastic crowd in Poland’s historic Krasiński Square, President Donald Trump said, the people of the west are crying out, ”We want God”.
“Through four decades of communist rule, Poland and the other captive nations of Europe endured a brutal campaign to demolish freedom, your faith, your laws, your history, your identity – indeed the very essence of your culture and your humanity,” the president said.
He recalled how on June 2, 1979, when Poles gathered for their first mass with Polish Pope John Paul II, the communists in Warsaw must have known their oppressive system would soon crumble.
“They must have known during that exact moment during Pope John Paul II’s sermon when a million Polish men, women and children suddenly raised their voices in a single prayer. A million Polish people did not ask for wealth. They did not ask for privilege. Instead, one million Poles sang three simple words: ‘We want God’,” Trump said to applause.
He continued, “As I stand here today before this incredible crowd, this faithful nation, we can still hear those voices that echo through history. Their message is as true today as ever. The people of Poland, the people of America, and the people of Europe still cry out ‘We want God’.”
Through their devotion to God, Trump said, the Polish people were able to fight the oppression of communism and prevail to which the crowd broke out into a chant of “Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!”
Crowds packed the streets surrounding Krasiński Square, with some people holding large blue signs that read, ‘Make Poland Great’ as others waved both Polish and American flags. ”Thank you, Mr. Trump,” read one sign.
President Trump spoke about the many ways Poles have enriched America and said the U.S. is eager to extend its partnership with not only Poland, but other eastern European nations as well.
“We are committed to securing your access to alternate sources of energy, so Poland and its neighbors are never again held hostage to a single supplier of energy,” Trump said, referring to Russia’s monopoly on energy exports to Poland.
The president said he visited Poland to hold it up as an example for others who seek freedom, “The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken, and who have never, ever forgotten who they are,” he said.
The crowd responded by chanting another round of, “Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!”
The president spoke of the threat of radical Islamic terrorism facing the U.S. and Europe today.
“We cannot accept those who reject our values and who use hatred to justify violence against the innocent,” he said.
He also addressed Russia’s aggression in nearby Ukraine and its support of hostile regimes.
He went on to call out another threat: the steady growth of government and bureaucracy that he says, “drains the vitality and wealth of the people” in both the U.S. and Poland.
“The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies,” he continued.
He was joined on stage by veterans of the heroic Warsaw uprising during WWII in which Jews relegated to a ghetto as they waited transfer to death camps banded together to fight the oppression of the Nazis.
“We can have the largest economies and the most lethal weapons anywhere on Earth, but if we do not have strong families and strong values, then we will be weak and we will not survive,” Trump said to applause.
