Israeli anger at Unesco motion’s failure to link holy site to Judaism.
Resolution denies importance of site in Jerusalem’s Old City to Jews by referring to it only under Muslim name, politicians say.
The United Nations cultural and heritage body, Unesco, has condemned Israel’s “escalating aggressions” regarding the holy site in Jerusalem’s Old City, known to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif and to Jews as the Temple Mount, prompting a furious reaction from Israeli politicians.
A resolution passed on Thursday denied the importance of the site to the Jewish faith by referring to it and the al-Aqsa mosque only by their Muslim names, the politicians said.
The site has been a flashpoint between Muslims and rightwing Jews over the past two years in particular, although tensions in the vicinity stretch back decades.
The resolution was backed by 24 countries, with six opposing it and 26 abstaining. The US, UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania and Estonia voted against the resolution; Russia and China were among those backing it.
While affirming the importance of the Old City to all three monotheistic faiths – Judaism, Islam and Christianity – the resolution failed to acknowledge Jewish connections to Temple Mount/al-Haram al-Sharif, Israel said.

The United Nations (UN) has become an absurd theater. If there was no Judaism, there would be no Christianity. If there was no Temple Mount, there would be no Jesus. And the Bible is a collection of false testimonies.
And for all Muslims, this kind of bid to rewrite history, will be equally disastrous for them. Because most of the Koran is based on the Old Testament of the Bible. Keep in mind that Islam is a young religion, formed around 630 A.D. Islam also claim that Jesus has existed. In fact, Jesus (ISA) is a prophet according to the followers of Muhammad.
Every honest Muslim will have to agree that Jesus was a part of the people of Israel. There are amplified archeological evidence that there have been two Jewish temples in Jerusalem. The second temple, a place where the Messiah walked and talked. It is only He who can save a man from his sins. Let him be a Jew, a Muslim or a Christian.
