The absence of Christian outrage over the UNESCO vote

What is NOT baffling is that UNESCO (and any organization connected with the United Nations or geared for globalism) will refute and repudiate the connection between Israel and the burial place of Abraham, Isaac (not Ishmael) and Jacob/Israel (not Esau), and between the Jews and any part of Jerusalem, especially those that today lie within and closely around the walls of the Old City.

What is not in the slightest bit mystifying is that the international community – politically-speaking – assiduously and unremittingly condemns the building of Jewish communities precisely in those parts of the land where the Patriarchs who lie buried in Hebron walked when the One calls Who Himself everlastingly the “God of Israel” gave it by oath and vow and covenant to them and their descendants (again, through Isaac and Jacob and not through Ishmael and Esau) forever.

It is hardly a news item that the overwhelmingly anti-God-of-the-Bible and anti-Christ world rejects the Jews’ title to this land and instead claims it for a non-entity – a historical never-has-been now universally known as “the Palestinians.”

Nor that those who reject the root religion upon which Mohammedism was fraudulently attached, and embrace the false attachment, should try to corroborate their version of “God and Man” while rubbishing the original one.

No – there is nothing surprising or confusing about the Hebron vote June 7 by UNESCO – or by its vote three days before on Jerusalem.

They have no shame – these fools who come out in support of a “Palestine” that has never existed, and which cannot make a single verifiable historical argument in support of its “history”, while they reject millennia of documented evidence – archeological and written – that solidly supports ONLY the Jewish claim to these sites and to this land.

Useful idiots – nations that are so fearful of Arab and Muslim threats and acts of violence; nations whose eunuch leaders are unable to withstand these Muslim-Arab lies to the faces of the liars that they will cast their votes in support of fabrications and deceit.

Their behaviour is – in this second decade of the 21st century – as predictable as it is despicable.

What IS perplexing to the point of infuriation is the way what was once an overwhelmingly Christian West – with its foundations set in the bedrock of millennia-old Judeo-Christian – AKA Biblical – history, whose systems of law and justice are rooted in this Bible upon which their presidents and prime ministers place their hands in oath when they enter office – that these nations have neither the courage nor conviction of their foundational faith nor pride in their national birthright to withstand, excoriate, spurn and scornfully reject votes and rulings like these passed by UNESCO – and like UN Security Council Resolution 2334 of 23 December 2016 that rejected all Jewish title to the cradle of their nationhood and was shamefully permitted passage by the godless Obama administration.

Oh, some say, who cares? Who or what is UNESCO? Why is its “inscribing” so important, so worrisome any way? And what weight, after all, does even a UNSC resolution have that it should keep Israelis awake at night?

If only they could be ignored. But these rulings matter a great deal, for they add brick and mortar to what has become the towering edifice of lies that is the “Palestinian cause” – a cause which seeks to bring about not the peaceful and promising creation of a country called Palestine, but the complete and utter destruction of a country called Israel.

Make no mistake – as much as Israel’s annihilation is being worked towards in Iran’s subterranean nuclear weapons facilities, it is being arranged in the halls and chambers of the United Nations and its anti-Semitic and anti-Christian organs.

And it can be, thanks to the almost complete absence of Christian outrage.

We are children of Abraham by faith in the Jewish Messiah. No one would guess that it is OUR fathers whose identity is being stolen and whose graves are being robbed.
