1. Kol Ha Kavod Bibi !!
Mike ,   TA   (10.29.10)
2. Okay. Okay.
Two can play this game. Isn't the Al Aqsa mosque built over the site of the binding of Isaac and the ruins of the Beit Hamigdash? Oh dear -- I guess we'll have to move the mosque, too. Oh well.
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (10.29.10)
3. Rachel Tomb
PM Benjamin Natanyahu MUST STAND FIRMLY to UNESCO,and to defend one of our HOLY SITE.We all know that Islam wil always destroy religious sites of other religions and then build a MOSQUE to claim their HOLY SITES. Your name is BENJAMIN like the son of our grandmother RACHEL.STAND FIRM and the world will respect you. Holy places for MUSLIMS are in MECCA & MEDINA in ARABIA

4. BRAVO TO BIBI- THANK YOU SIR :-)
DRIVE THE FACTS OF HISTORY, CULTURE AND TRUTH TO THE UNESCO.

5. Amazing!
First they killed the Jews and took their assets, then they denied Jews were killed at all, maybe they died by themselves. Now the Jews are not even Jews, they are not connected to any history, places, land, they are AIR!

6. bibi is okay
yes, he is hesitant, yes he is overly influenced by barak, but his heart is in theright place and he understands the value of a hill. His predecessor had no interest in hills, did not fathom it, would make any concession for a deal, had no conviction except his own pocketbook and staying out of jail. Bibi fortunately has yaalon, lieberman, yishai, and begin to put some steel in his bones and to outvote barak, the serial appeaser, and merridor. on issues that really count. And there will be atime, that israel has to depart from the US on fundamentals. And if haber worries endlessly, rest tranquil in the knowledge that the US does not want to install troops in a forward base in the middle east to do intelligence, interdiction and antiterror operations. israel can mobilize 600,000 well armed forced fully equipped if it has to. US military is lost without israel period and nneds it as much as israel needs the US.

8. UNESCO cannot take away our heritage
Whether or not UNESCO removes Rachel's tomb from THEIR list of our heritage sites, it remains OUR heritage site. They can't change that, no matter what they do. What they can do is to make themselves even more ridiculous. They are quite successful at that.

9. Add the Temple Mount/sakhra to the list
Abd al-Malik built the Dome of the Rock as a flagrant violation of Umar ibn al-Khattab's orders not to consecrate the site as Islamic. al-Malik's goal at the time was to attract pilgrims who couldn't access Mecca due to the Zubayrid revolt, but then centuries past, and the fadayil al-Quds were written to pretend that the site was somehow holy to the Mohammedan religion. Time to end that masquerade.

10. Naughty Salma
Do sit up in class and listen . Its one and the same .Israel is the Jewish homeland and the Jews have returned to Israel. As for UNESCO nonsense that there is a mosque already there ,well maybe so but on the basis Judaism is 4000 years old an Islam a mere 1400 years then in my reckoning the Mosque came second and is trespassing on my front garden. Much the same as the Al Asqa which was deliberately built on the site of the Jewish Holy of Holys in order to demonstrate Islams dominance at that time. In time this narrative became Mohammeds Night Journey .As if ! .

12. This is what happens when you put your fate in the UN
This is the same UN that will recognize Palestine when they declare their independence on August 11, 2011. The UN has a bag of tricks to play on you in order to eventually dispossess you of all your land. To those who think that Jewish historical rights or international legal documentation have any value to the UN, think again. Aside from Canada, I cannot think of any other country that is acting out of high principles regarding Israel these days. As you know, Canada's application to membership in the Security Council was scuttled by pro-Arab votes who think the Canadian government is too pro-Israel. So, without friends in the UN Security Council (we don't count on the US anymore), once the UN decides decides to partition the land, it will be next to impossible to fight back. The pressure will be too much for the government ...... All these things are related: the redesignation of Rachel's Tomb, Goldstone's neutering of the IDF, the demonization of Israel... When we connect the dots, we realize that they are all part of one big plan to destroy ALL of Israel.

13. Jews aren't really Jews ...
"Abraham, Yitzhak, Sarah, Rivkah, Leah, and Rachel were buried 4,000 years ago are not part of Jewish heritage, then what is?" Why the Khazaars of course since according to this gang and the assorted useful idiot hangers on, the Jews aren't really a legitimate people but are really the Palestinian Arabs who converted from Judaism. Note the parallel to a people that never existed prior to the 1960's that are now touted as being the indigenous people of Israel ... the Arabians or Arabs. There is no solution to this delusion other then ignoring the Muslim and oil dependent nations controlled UN. Either ignore it or withdraw from it.

17. screw UNESCO
When was the last time any UN body ever proposed anything that wasn't anti Israel in some form or another? UNESCO want to take Israels heritage sites. UNRWA give unconditional support to the palestinian cause & if the palestinians want it UNRWA wants it. UN General Assembly has passed more resolutions against Israel than any other country in the world. Even the most brutal dictaitorships have less resolutions against them than Israel. The UN is now supporting Hizbollah. The UN condemned Israel when it snatched Eichman from the protection he has in Argentina. The Israeli government dropped plans to send Mossad to try find Mengele who got away because the UN was so furious it went after Eichman. The League of Nations was disolved and its time for the UN to go the same way. It cost the international community billions to run and very rarely gets anything done thats useful. Other than costing alot of money to run what is the purpose of the General Assembly which passes resolutions which are more like glorified proposals and not binding. In the modern world all we need is some kind of politically neutral global aid organization.

21. Rachels Tomb
We should talk with our enemies, which includes the UN ( united Nations of Antisemites ) the only language they will understand and always understood. Why does the Unesco not ask to remove the Petersdom?
Juda ,   Hebron   (10.29.10)
22. To: No. 7
The Kingdom of Israel was in existence when your ancestors were running around in the Arabian desert worshiping rocks, trees and stones. Why do you feel compelled to put your ignorance on display all the time? We KNOW you are stupid. You don't have to keep proving it.

25. Jeremiah 11:5
G-d said: "Then I will fulfill the oath I swore to your forefathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey'--the land you possess today." It wasn't said: "...to give them THE land flowing with milk and honey, that resolution really needs the French interpretation.

26. Deport the UN
As part of a terrorist support group UNESCO, UNRWA and the UN should be deported from Israel and their buildings given to poor Jews.
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (10.29.10)
27. To the Salami (7)
Good, so you admit these are Jewish heritage sites. Therefore Arabian interlopers such as yourself have no business even discussing these sites. And please tell UNESCO to return the Kaaba rock in Mecca to the original pagans who worshipped there.

29. Re #7 salma ,palistine - a lesson from the Torah
GENESIS(B'resheet) CHAPTER 32 :24-28 24 ΒΆ And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. 25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. 26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. 27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. 28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but ISRAEL: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
Galut ,   selah   (10.29.10)
30. Heritage sites
Technically, UNESCO is correct in its demands. True, the sites are heritage sites and reflect actual historical and theological happenings. But the Zionists, who claim the sites, are illegally in the Holy Land and have been so since 135 AD. Several days ago, the revered Archbishop Cyril Salim Bustros stated correctly and plainly that the Holy Presence of Christ Jesus voided the validity of Jewish residence in the Holy Land.
