“Jews forbidden to step upon ground of al-Aqsa Mosque”

The Associate Director of the Neturei Karta International has hailed the UNESCO resolution on maintaining the Islamic nature of the al-Aqsa Mosque, saying rabbis had previously urged Jewish people not to engage in deputes over religious places. UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has passed a resolution that re-affirms the Islamic nature of the al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem al-Quds. The resolution also condemns Israel for acts against Islamic holy sites in the city. It slams the “aggressions by the Israeli” occupation authorities. The majority of the 21-nation committee voted for the resolution proposed by Palestinians and Jordanians. The annual meeting was held in Paris on Wednesday. Israel’s representative to the UN, has reacted angrily calling the resolution craziness. He claims that the UN is trying to remove the Jewish people from their historical homeland. Also following the vote, Tel Aviv recalled its UNESCO representative to demonstrate dissatisfaction. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Ambassador to UNESCO has condemned Israel for politicizing religion.
