Israel thanks Italy for stance on UNESCO Jerusalem resolution
AFP reports: "Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked his Italian
counterpart Matteo Renzi on Saturday for his stance against a resolution
adopted by UNESCO on Jerusalem.
The UN cultural agency on Tuesday adopted an Arab-sponsored resolution
condemning Israel's actions at a flashpoint holy site in east Jerusalem,
deepening anger in the Jewish state.
On Friday, Renzi strongly criticised the resolution, saying that Rome --
which had abstained in the vote -- would now oppose it."
Comment: The notion that there's no Jewish connection to the Temple Mount is absurd, so the real story here is not that one European country broke ranks with the UN position, it's that most of them haven't. Congratulations to Italy for taking a stand for Israel!
