Had UNESCO bothered to look, it could have found maps such as this one which
establish the antiquity of the Jews' claim to the land of Israel.
(FYI to UNESCO deniers who are slow on the uptake:
It's called "Judea" because it's Jewish, you dolts.)
Update: FYI, here's how the voting went:
To update the appropriate quotation: All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for non-Muslim nations to abstain from a UNESCO vote.
Update: Freaking Mexico voted in favour?!!! Time for Jews to bid hasta la vista to the Mayan Riviera and other Mexican destinations for a while.
Update: UN to declare Israel "occupying power" in Jerusalem
When Israel's Arab/Muslim enemies can't defeat the Jewish state via warfare, they gang up under the auspices of the UN and resort to these kinds of measures--in effect, war by another name.
Update: [Lord Rabbi Jonathan] Sacks calls Unesco Temple Mount decision 'an outrage' during Lords Israel-Palestine debate
Update: For UNESCO, it was all downhill after this.
