2,700-year-old find disagrees with Wednesday’s UNESCO note

While UNESCO was deciding Jews have no claim to the Temple Mount:

“A rare, ancient papyrus dating to the First Temple Period — 2,700 years ago — has been found to bear the oldest known mention of Jerusalem in Hebrew.”



“The full text of the inscription reads: ‘From the female servant of the king, from Naharata (place near Jericho) two wineskins to Jerusalem.’”

Meanwhile, back in anti-Jewish, pro-Muslim UN land:

“UNESCO adopts another resolution ignoring Jewish link to Temple Mount”

“In secret ballot, cultural body’s World Heritage Committee approves text using only the site’s Muslim name; 10 states vote in favor, 2 oppose, 8 abstain.”

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu says UNESCO remains “a theater of the absurd.” He is being way too nice.
