Trump Slams UN’s Anti-Israel Bias On Yerushalayim, Says it is the “Enduring Capital of the Jewish People”

0

Today, UNESCO adopted its second decision this year denying the Jewish people’s connection to the Har Habayis, the holiest site for Jews for over three thousand years.

The UNESCO resolution claims that Yerushalayim is holy to the three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Islam and Christianity, but it adds that the Har Habayis is sacred only to Muslims and fails to mention that it is sacred to the Jews as well.

In response to UNESCO’s audacious resolution, Donald Trump issued a statement, saying, “I have said on numerous occasions that in a Trump Administration, the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the one true capital of Israel. The United Nations’ attempt to disconnect the State of Israel from Jerusalem is a one-sided attempt to ignore Israel’s 3,000-year bond to its capital city, and is further evidence of the enormous anti-Israel bias of the UN. Jerusalem is the enduring capital of the Jewish People and the overwhelming majority of Congress has voted to recognize Jerusalem as just that.

“Further, the decision by the Obama Administration to strike the word ‘Israel’ after the word ‘Jerusalem’ in the President’s prepared text was a capitulation to Israel’s enemies, and a posthumous embarrassment to Shimon Peres, whose memory the President was attempting to honor. In a Trump Administration, Israel will have a true, loyal and lasting friend in the United States of America.”
