IJC Statement on Deplorable UNESCO Decision on Denying Jewish Connection to Hebron
7 July, 2017
The Israeli-Jewish Congress (IJC) Statement on UNESCO Decision on Hebron
The Israeli-Jewish Congress (IJC) deplores UNESCO’s decision today to declare the holy Old City of Hebron and the Cave of Patriarchs as Palestinian sites.
This disgraceful decision, in which UNECO has totally acquiesced to the Palestinian campaign of lies, incitement and hatred, is a total fabrication of history and inversion of truth, denying unquestionable Jewish connection to the city of Hebron and the Cave of the Patriarchs, the second holiest site in Judaism.
The decision follows a spate of other recent outrageous resolutions passed by UNESCO, including another only this week, again denying Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem.
It does not matter how many resolutions UNESCO seeks to pass, it will never deny the truth, history and Jewish connection to our Holy Sites.
But enough is enough, the international community must once and for allstand up to the Palestinian hijacking of UN bodies such as UNESCO for political purposes to spread their campaign of hate, lies and terror against the State of Israel and the Jewish people.
* The Israeli-Jewish Congress (IJC) is an independent Israeli-based organization devoted to promoting Israel as a Jewish state and supporting Israel in the international community.
