The world has officially gone insane.
In a post-factual world, it seems lies shouted long enough, loud enough can win wars that were lost with weapons.
The enemies of Israel have gone to war to destroy Israel, to destroy Jerusalem, to destroy our Temple – all in attempt to erase the Jewish connection to this land and eventually cause the disintegration of the Jewish people. They even tried to change the name of this land in order to create a new reality.
It didn’t work.
The Jewish people didn’t need the physical Temple to remember where their heart belongs, from whence the Spirit beats.
2000 years of exile were not enough to make the Jewish people forget.
The Holocaust did not make the Jewish people forget or give up.
Every year Jews around the world prayed to return to the rebuilt Jerusalem. We still do.
Every prayer is said with the face turned towards Jerusalem.
Every Jewish couple is only officially married AFTER they publicly announce that Jerusalem comes above all other joys. On the happiest day of their lives, Jerusalem and the Temple that once stood in its heart comes FIRST.
The world was astounded when the tiny remnant of a people revived regained Jerusalem, regained the Temple Mount. Then the world applauded the achievement, rejoiced for our joy.
And our enemies continued to work to disconnect the Jewish people from Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. They tried with wars. They tried with bombings, knifings, stones.
It didn’t work.
Their ideas are unacceptable. Their actions deplorable.
So now they try with lies. Where facts don’t matter maybe lies will work.
UNESCO is supposed to preserve and promote education, science and culture.
But educating about the truth about Israel doesn’t matter.
The science of the carbon dating, the archaeology, the linguistics, the art that proves Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount doesn’t matter.
Thousands of years of culture can be swept away with one little lie.
Or so they think.
SHAME on UNESCO.
SHAME on all the countries who support them, who vote for lies instead of truth.
Now it is up to us to prove them wrong.
