HaMachpela - Tomb of Patriarchs and Matriarchs



Enough is enough. We've had it with UN shenanigans. Whether it be a false and malicious anti-Israel resolution in the General Assembly or Security Council, or a decision enacted by a UN agency such as UNESCO, the deck is invariably stacked against Israel.


Of course, kudos to Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon for fighting the good fight and achieving notable successes for Israel in the UN arena, an arena barely less lethal than the Roman amphitheater was to Jewish slaves 2,000 years ago.

And the United States? The US funds this anti-Western, anti-Democratic and anti-Semitic institution to the tune of billions of dollars a year, leading us to ask: For what? What is the return on the investment? Being spat on and slurred by two-bit dictatorships and fascist states?

It has been known for a long time that the UN in no way lives up to its mission as defined in its founding Charter, but instead has been hijacked by a cabal of anti-democratic forces, specifically Arab and Islamic and their allies, who have a guaranteed majority vote in many or most UN bodies.

Take as an example, the warped logic as depicted in the following short video. Here, UN representatives appropriately stand for a moment of silence to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust. And right after that, Cuba, that well known bastion of freedom and democracy, requests that the assembly stand again for a moment of silence for the "Palestinians", those poor victims of purported Israeli violence and aggression.

This is just another disgusting attempt at portraying moral equivalence between legitimate victims - millions of murdered Jews and others - and phony victims - the "Palestinians", whose own raison d'etre includes playing the victim-hood card for lack of any legitimate moral standing.


Of course, earlier this week, UNESCO passed a resolution disavowing Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, and denouncing any Israel activity in the Old City, especially archaeological excavations.




And, there will be another UNESCO vote forthcoming very soon, on the Palestinian Authority's request to have the ancient Jewish city of Hebron and the Cave of the Patriarchs - the Ma'arat HaMachpela - recognized as exclusively 'Palestinian heritage sites.'


So far, the language of this latest resolution has been toned down somewhat, but the attempt to undermine the Jewish connection to one of Judaism's holiest sites continues unabated.

As we questioned at the outset, what return on investment does the United States receive for its continued funding of the United Nations, a body that works against US interests? Until this question can be answered satisfactorily, we see no need for its continued existence, especially on US soil.

Prime Minister Netanyahu vetoes Beit El bill: WHY??



As reported in the Jerusalem Post, yesterday Prime Minister Netanyahu vetoed a bill that would provide for 300 new homes in Beit El, promised in exchange for the peaceful evacuation in 2012 of 30 families from the Ulpana neighborhood on the outskirts of Beit El.

According to the Post, the 300 structures have received all their necessary permits and need only Netanyahu's approval to market them.

Netanyahu had promised that he would approve the homes by this September. So why did he veto the bill now, so close to September? Members of his coalition have asked this question, but an answer has not been forthcoming.

We urge Prime Minister Netanyahu to enable this bill to pass ASAP.

We are watching this very closely.
