For the second time in less than a week, UNESCO, the United Nations’ cultural committee, approved an anti-Israel resolution. Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, decried the move as “an ugly display of discrimination, and an act of aggression against the Jewish people.”

These outrageous U.N. resolutions are sheer harassment and invite violence against Israel.Christians in Defense of Israel is relaunching our “Stop the United Nations’ Assault on Israel!” initiative, calling on the Trump administration, United Nation Ambassadors, and the 115th Congress to take swift and formal actions to punish the U.N. for its unrelenting anti-Israel bigotry.

Today, UNESCO “resolved to have the Tomb of the Patriarchs, in the Old City of Hebron in the West Bank, inscribed as a Palestinian world heritage site in danger,” as reported by the Times of Israel.

“The Tomb of the Patriarchs, revered as the Biblical burial place of the Jewish patriarchs and matriarchs, is now the third cultural site on UNESCO’s ‘List of World Heritage in Danger’ that is registered as located in the ‘State of Palestine.’ The other two are the birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem and the ‘cultural landscape of Southern Jerusalem,’ around Battir.”

Incensed by the UNESCO resolution, Israel Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, slammed the anti-Israel agency …

“This attempt to sever the ties between Israel and Hebron is shameful and offensive, and eliminates UNESCO’s last remaining shred of credibility. To disassociate Israel from the burial grounds of the patriarchs and matriarchs of our nation is an ugly display of discrimination, and an act of aggression against the Jewish people.”

Earlier this week, UNESCO advanced an Arab -backed resolution rejecting Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. UNESCO condemned “Israel, the occupying power,” for conducting excavations in the Old City. But Israeli archeological digs have repeatedly proven Israel’s centuries-old habitation of the land.

In an official response, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated, “The decision is sad, unnecessary and pathetic…. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people, and no UNESCO decision can change that.”

+ + The Palestinians claim a “right” to violence against Israel

Following the UNESCO resolutions, Raafat Alayan, a Fatah leader in Jerusalem, hinted the UNESCO resolutions could fuel violence and terror against the “occupying” Israelis:

“This international resolution confirms the right of the Palestinian people to resist the Israeli occupation…”

+ + Hit ’em where it hurts!

Our tax dollars are being used to foster hate and violence against God’s chosen people via the United Nations. It is infuriating that YOU AND I, as American taxpayers, are funding the U.N. and their anti-Israel biases at a staggering $3 BILLION PER YEAR – almost a quarter of the organization’s entire annual revenue.

Christians in Defense of Israel is working to “Stop the United Nations’ Assault on Israel!” by calling on the Trump administration, United Nation Ambassadors, and the 115th Congress to take swift and formal actions, including defunding the U.N. and its anti-Semitic factions.

+ + America Christians must NOT stand by and let this happen. 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls the United Nations, “the theater of the absurd.” The United Nations consistently singles out the Jewish state for vicious criticism utterly detached from reality.

While these latest resolutions are absurd, they minimize Judaism’s links to its holiest sites, and refer to Jewish holy sites only by their Muslim names.

Again, the “Palestinian State” uses the U.N.’s resolutions as ammunition to “resist” Israeli occupation.

These resolutions ignore and attempt to rewrite Jewish history dating back to the Old Testament — and are blatantly anti-Semitic.

Friends of Israel across the United States must respond to this vicious assault now!

Today, let’s agree that it’s time to “Stop the United Nations’ Assault on Israel!” by calling on the Trump administration, United Nation Ambassadors, and the 115th Congress to take swift and formal actions against the U.N., an organization founded to promote international peace, that is now using its international clout to incite animosity against the Jewish state.

Thank you, in advance, for taking action today.

God bless you. God bless Israel. God bless America.
