United Nations Passes Resolution Favoring Temple Mount As Muslim Holy SiteBy Behold Israel, Nov 6, 2020

In what was one of seven anti-Israel resolutions passed at the United Nations this week, the body voted to pass one resolution that gave recognition to the Temple Mount as solely a Muslim holy site, using only the Muslim name; Erdan: No resolution passed here will change the eternal connection between the Jewish people and the holiest site of our faith – Har HaBayit, the Temple Mount.

In what is disgracefully the normal pattern of the United Nations, they’ve once again passed several anti-Israel resolutions this last week. One of the more notable resolutions cited the Temple Mount in Jerusalem only by the Muslim title of al-Haram al-Sharif, disposing of the Temple Mount’s biblical and undeniable connection to Jewish history.

The resolution, which was agenda item #53, claimed that the UN council is “gravely concerned by the tensions and violence in the recent period throughout the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem and including with regard to the holy places of Jerusalem, including the Haram al-Sharif.”

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan responded to the resolution stating that it, “completely ignores any link between the Jewish people and the Temple Mount – our holiest site. This is a disgrace. The audacious attempt to rewrite history will not change the indisputable fact that the Jewish connection to the city of Jerusalem dates back thousands of years.”

He also voiced the reality that the world is recognizing more and more Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem, stating, “They will also not change the fact that today, our connection to Jerusalem is stronger than ever. A growing number of countries are moving their embassies to Jerusalem, our united and undivided capital.”

Undoubtedly, despite the many centuries of contention over the disputed site, the Temple Mount is inherently Jewish. In fact, it’s the location where both the Solomonic and Herodian temple once stood.

This was one of seven anti-Israel resolutions passed in the UN this week.

Pompeo says U.S. is ‘working to get every nation to recognize Israel,’ hints Sudan could be next

By Jennie Taer

During Wednesday’s State Department press briefing, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo teased that Sudan could be the next country to sign a deal to normalize diplomatic relations with Israel. Pompeo also revealed that the U.S. is moving to lift the state sponsorship of terror designation still imposed against Sudan.

The Trump administration recently brokered similar deals with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Israel, dubbed “The Abraham Accords.” The two gulf countries signed deals with Israel at the White House last month, signaling a “new era of Middle East Peace.” A delegation from Sudan was reportedly in attendance at the signing ceremony.
