The ‘Palestinians,’ with the help of the Israel-hating U.N., already claimed themselves as the “rightful owners” of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, the ‘Tomb of the Patriarchs’ in Hebron (The world’s most ancient Jewish site and the second holiest place for Jews, where the patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, and Leah are buried), and the ‘Western Wall’ in Jerusalem, which is the only remaining wall of the outside courtyard of King Solomon’s Temple.
When they are finished with their list of Jewish and Christian sites, maybe they can move on to claim ownership of the Eiffel Tower. And maybe Buckingham Palace. And the Washington Monument.

With statehood evading them – mostly due to their own intransigence – the Palestinians are continuing their efforts to hijack Israel’s and the Jewish people’s national history and treasures in a failed and misguided bid to advance their cause.
According to Shimon Samuels of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Palestinians are likely to use a meeting of UNESCO this summer to claim that the archeological site of Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls found there decades ago actually belong to them.
The Palestinians apparently have a list of 13 sites they want to register under “Palestine” at UNESCO and have already had some success….
The sad fact that UN institutions are biased against Israel is well-known and is nothing new. This is a shame on the UN and many of its members. What the Palestinians are now doing – trying to steal the Jewish people’s national history – is something completely different that should make any self-respecting government question whether Mahmoud Abbas really is a proponent of peace as he claims….
The so-called Palestinians–Arabs et al–want is for ALL of Israel to be theirs. What they could not do in their earlier wars against the Jewish state, they want to try with the UN. This will not end well.
Disturbing to say the least.
