UN General Assembly: Netanyahu slams Bokova’s UNESCO

Written by on September 23, 2016 in Bulgaria, World - Comments Off on UN General Assembly: Netanyahu slams Bokova’s UNESCO

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has slammed the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today, which is headed by the Bulgarian candidate for UN Secretary-General, Irina Bokova.

At the UN General Assembly in New York, Netanyahu harshly criticized UNESCO’s recent vote to deny any Jewish connection to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The Prime Minister called the UNESCO’s approach in this regard a “circus”. “This is hard to believe”, Netanyahu stated, “but UNESCO just denied the 4000 year connection between the Jewish people and its holiest site, the Temple Mount. That’s just as absurd as denying the connection between the Great Wall of China and China.”

Information about any statements on this matter by Irina Bokova was not available.
