The United Temple Mount Movement (UTTM) sent a strongly worded letter to the Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova urging her to prevent the Jordanian-Palestinian resolution aimed at erasing the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount. The Committee is meeting in Istanbul from July 10 to 20 to vote on new sites for its World Heritage List. On Tuesday and Wednesday it will also be affirming and adding new sites to its endangered list.
UTTM Foreign Affairs Director Yosef Rabin, slammed the behavior of UNESCO writing: “The denial of the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount, constitutes a public assault on the Jewish Faith and Nation and we will not stand silent in the face of such blasphemy against our Holy of Holies…It is unthinkable that an organization dedicated to protecting heritage sites worldwide would ignore historical facts in an attempt to deny the Jewish People the site of their Holy Temple. Would UNESCO deny the Muslim connection to the Kaaba in Mecca or of the Catholic Church to Vatican City?“.
The fact that the United Nations is wrestling with the status of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem should not surprise us. The prophecies of the Bible specifically address the status of the Temple Mount for the times just ahead. They foretell that the most disputed piece of real estate on the globe will be placed under a sharing arrangement in an attempt to resolve the world’s most hotly disputed issue.
This present dispute over the Temple Mount is a huge sign to all of us that we are living in the end time right now! The end time is not coming. The end time is now!
