UN official humiliates Netanyahu over history lesson

Netanyahu was angry with UNESCO decision that Al-Aqsa Mosque is a unique Islamic site Mladenov reiterated: “The UN personnel in Jerusalem knows very well the history of the region, of its people and of its religions.” Days of Palestine, Jerusalem -UN senior official in Jerusalem has humiliated Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu over proposing to deliver history lesson to UN officials. In the wake of the UNESCO call for Israeli occupation to respect Muslim freedom of religion in a document that recognised no historical connection between Israel and Jerusalem, Netanyahu proposed to deliver a history lesson to all UN officials and foreign diplomat in Israel. “The UNESCO strongly condemned the Israeli aggressions and illegal measures against the freedom of worship and Muslims’ access to their Holy Site Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al Sharif -the third holiest site in Islam,” the document said

Netanyahu was furious that the Jewish term for the site was not even mentioned in the document and termed the resolution “absurd” and stated that it “ignores the unique historic connection of Judaism to the “Temple Mount.” On Friday, he proposed to “personally organise” what he termed “a seminar on Jewish history for all UN personnel in Israel and for diplomats.” Special Coordinator for Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov turned down on Saturday Netanyahu’s proposal. “No thanks,” Mladenov responded. “If somebody wants to send invitations, he can address them to Paris and to the member states’ ambassadors to UNESCO there,” he said. He reiterated: “The UN personnel in Jerusalem knows very well the history of the region, of its people and of its religions.”
