Ambassador Barkan says Israel is upset over the Jordanian about-face concerning the Mughrabi renovations near the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
Israel is furious with Jordan, Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO said yesterday.
Nimrod Barkan said Israel is shocked that Amman had led a successful effort within the international body to condemn Israel over the renovations planned for the Mughrabi Gate Bridge – after signing an agreement with Israel to allow the work to go ahead.
“The Jordanians lied in a way that cannot be believed, both to us and to the Americans,” Barkan said in a phone call from Paris. “They lied all along the way. They wanted to get it both ways.”
The plans for razing and rebuilding the old Mughrabi Gate bridge, which leads from the Western Wall plaza in Jerusalem to the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Temple Mount, have been public for a while and are intended to begin next week – and Israel and Jordan had reached a clear agreement about the work, Barkan said.
But despite the understanding, Israel – and the U.S. – were stunned last week to learn that Jordan, along with Egypt, Iraq, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Cambodia and Mali had filed a complaint against Israel in UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee over the planned renovations.
“The most astonishing thing is they don’t even mention the agreement between Israel and Jordan!” said Barkan, who added that Jordanian and Palestinian representatives also handed out pamphlets to members of the committee saying that Israel was also planning to carry out work at the Damascus Gate.

One of the reasons why Israelis do not believe the Arabs wants peace, is their unlimited unfaithfulness. They can simply not be trusted. One day they sign an agreement, and the very next day they might break their promises.
When Israel and the Kingdom of Jordan signed a UN backed cease fire agreement in 1949, Jordan promised to let people of all faith visit their religious sites in Jordan controlled East Jerusalem.
Instead of keeping their promises, the Jordanians expelled Jews from East Jerusalem. This part of the city was annexed, and more then 50 synagogues burnt or destroyed. The city was turned into an area occupied by Islamic forces, equally wicked as all other Jew-haters.
That Jordan again is cheating on Israel, is another end time sign. There is no truth in the spirit controlling all who have wage war against the capital of Israel, the liberated and united city of Jerusalem. To keep on denying the entry of Jews to the Temple Mount is a violation of religious freedom.
On the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, stood both the first and the second Temple. Soon the man of lawlessness will enter into this place, and set Him self on the throne and claim to be “The holy father” , the name Jesus exclusively kept for His and our Father God in Heaven.
Behold: Jesus the Messiah will one day sit on His throne on the Temple Mount. He will sit on the Judgment seat, and all who have done evil will face eternity outside of the kingdom of Heaven. This will be the lake of fire, prepared for the devil and all who rejected the Messiah.
Be wise. Accept Jesus as Lord and Master today.
