A white guy with Dreadlocks? That’s ‘cultural appropriation’. But this? It’s Progressivism, baby!
There was a time when anti-Semitism was considered one of the most cringeworthy kinds of racism. But now? Now it’s trending.
Obama likes to lecture the West (especially America) about all the sins we have supposedly committed in times past. He likes to mention the Crusades. What he fails to mention in his history lesson is Islam’s aggressive Colonization and subjugation of North Africa, the Middle East, and parts of Europe.
The Israeli government reacted angrily on Thursday to a United Nations body’s resolutions that failed to mention any link between Judaism and its holy sites in Jerusalem.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) renewed the resolutions that criticized Israel for what it says are its policies that restrict Muslim access to a site considered holy by both Jews and Muslims in Jerusalem’s Old City.
But a draft of the latest version of the resolution, posted on UNESCO’s website and dated Oct 12, showed the site repeatedly described only by its Muslim names – something Israel says amounts to a denial of its Jewish history.
‘The theatre of the absurd at UNESCO continues and today the organization adopted another delusional decision which says that the people of Israel have no connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall,’ Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in Jerusalem.
…’To declare that Israel has no connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall is like saying that China has no connection to the Great Wall of China or that Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids,’ Netanyahu said.
Nabil Abu Rdainah, a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said: ‘This is an important message to Israel that it must end its occupation and recognize the Palestinian state and Jerusalem as its capital with its sacred Muslim and Christian sites.’
…’With this absurd decision, UNESCO has lost what legitimacy it once had,’ Netanyahu said in a statement.

For those ignorant of history, this can help.
Mohammad and his ‘merry band’ began their run in the Seventh Century.
In the First Century, year 70, Rome sacked and destroyed Jerusalem, including the Temple. The Western (‘wailing’) Wall is all that remains of that holiest of Jewish sites.
Roughly one thousand years before that, the ORIGINAL temple was built on the same site. But somehow, Israel is an ‘occupying force’ and these things should be known by the names their conquerors gave them.
How ‘Progressive’ of them.
Bibi’s tweet summed it up nicely:
What's next? A UNESCO decision denying the connection between peanut butter and jelly? Batman and Robin? Rock and roll?

Since the Saudis may have funded as much as 20% of Hillary’s campaign, we can expect she will have nothing critical to say about this ruling if she were President.
How about Trump? Where will he stand on this issue?
He’s already told us.
He said he’d move the Embassy to Jerusalem.
