I’ll bet you didn’t know it, but October 24 is UN Day, and a landmark 70th anniversary for the organization. Seventy years of super-national bureaucracy, supporting dictators and terrorists, sex trafficking, anti-semitism, wealth transfers, and micro-managing the lives of individuals. The United States, one of 193 member nations, pays 22% of the UN’s general budget, and 25% of its peacekeeping budget, annually. Yipee!
This is a particularly noteworthy week at the UN, because this is the week when UNESCO attempted to have the Temple Mount in Israel’s Capital Jerusalem declared a Muslim Holy site. Imagine if UNESCO declared the Kaaba a site sacred to Catholicism and you’ll get an idea of what that means. But only an idea, because if the Kaaba were in any way officially identified with any other religion than Islam, thousands and maybe tens of thousands of people would be assaulted and / or murdered by Muslims unhappy with the decision.
As it is, UNESCO fell short of declaring the Jewish Temple Mount to be Islamic. But they did declare Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem and the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron to be Muslim sites, facts and history notwithstanding.
