United Nations Just Gave Rachel’s Tomb and Patriach Caves to Islam

UNESCO passed a resolution Wednesday declaring two biblical Jewish sites, Rachel’s Tomb near Bethlehem and the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, Islamic holy sites.

An earlier draft of the resolution, sponsored by six member nations of UNESCO’s executive board—Algeria, Egypt, Kuwait, Morocco, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates—included the Western Wall, known in Hebrew as the Kotel, calling it an extension of the al-Aksa Mosque and therefore a Muslim holy site as well. The revised version dropped that claim.

The resolution also accused Israel of “aggression and illegal measures” on the Temple Mount that affect Muslim’s freedom of worship and access to the al-Aksa Mosque. It further accused Israel of attempting to change the status quo since 1967, literally the opposite of what Israel is trying to do.
