Here’s A Bit Of Culture For UNESCO

805

I have to admit I have a real bee in my bonnet regarding the recent UNESCO decision to deny Judaism’s ties to the Temple Mount and Western Wall.

Since UNESCO is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, I thought I’d throw a bit of culture back in their faces, to illustrate just how ludicrous their decision is.

Here are some examples of old paintings illustrating that these sites have been known by their Jewish names, and Jews have been worshiping there, since well before 1948.
