UNESCO Adopts Resolution Denying Israel's Rights to J'slm

14 Mai 2017

He pointed to the failure of the intense Israeli campaign against the draft resolutions on Palestine and Jerusalem in UNESCO, and the failure of all those who supported undermining these resolutions from countries, groups, institutions and individuals.

Other Israeli officials also criticised UNESCO for holding the vote on Israel's Independence Day. "Grateful", the foreign minister tweeted.

Israel has reprimanded the Swedish government for breaking with the rest of the European Union and voting in favor of a UNESCO resolution critical of Israel.

The executive board of the UN's Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on Tuesday passed a resolution describing Jerusalem as "occupied" and challenging Israeli sovereignty over the city.

The resolution also regretted the failure of the Israeli occupying authorities to cease the persistent excavations, tunneling, works and projects in East Jerusalem, particularly in and around the Old City of Jerusalem, which are illegal under global law. Nahshon said that the two expressed Israel's bitter disappointment in the Swedish vote.

The Palestinian foreign ministry welcomed the declaration, calling it "a victory for worldwide law".

The United Nations' cultural agency is set to pass a resolution on Tuesday - Israel's 69th Independence Day - that indicates rejection of the Jewish state's sovereignty in any part of Jerusalem.

Netanyahu also thanked the USA, the UK, Greece, Germany, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Ukraine, Paraguay and Togo for voting against it. Netanyahu previously ordered $6 million to be cut from the funds in tranfers to the United Nations after the passing of Security Council Resolution 2334 against settlements in the West Bank. "And that while there will undoubtedly have to be compromises, you can rest assured, President Donald Trump will never compromise the safety and security of the Jewish state of Israel, not now, not ever".

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu slammed the declaration, saying it denies the Jews' historical connection with Jerusalem by presenting Israel as an occupying power there.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said that the slimmer vote margin was evidence that worldwide pressure on Israel is ebbing.

Like most countries, the United States maintains its embassy in Tel Aviv because Israelis and Palestinians have competing claims to Jerusalem.

After the new cut announced by Netanyahu on Wednesday, Israel is set to pay just $2.7 million in membership fees annually.
