|UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL ENVOY CALLS ON U.S. TO RESCIND THEIR AMBASSADOR AND HALT FUNDING TO UNESCO UNTIL INSULTING "TEMPLE DENIAL" RESOLUTION IS REVERSED|
LAURIE CARDOZA-MOORE CALLS UNESCO RESOLUTIONS ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT "WORSE THAN HOLOCAUST DENIAL"
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (New York, NY) November 2, 2016 - In the wake of the resolution passed by the UN's cultural body, UNESCO, which denies Israel's historic connection to the Temple Mount, Laurie Cardoza-Moore, UN Special Envoy for the World Council of Independent Christian Churches (WCICC) and President of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) issued a strong rebuke. She is calling on the United States of America to immediately halt all funding to the organization and rescind their ambassador until this historic travesty is reversed.
Cardoza-Moore declared: "Islamist historical revisionists have hijacked UNESCO, making a mockery of the organization and those who support its mission. I'm calling on the United States government to immediately rescind their Ambassador to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and halt all funding to the organization until such time as the organization reverses it's recent resolutions denying Judeo-Christian history on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The United States of America cannot be complacent while the foundations of Judaism and Christianity are publicly denied and defiled."
She continued: "This resolution is worse than Holocaust denial, as it questions the very existence of the Jewish people. By refusing to recognize the Jewish people's historic and biblical connection to the Temple Mount, UNESCO has denied the very foundation of our Judeo-Christian faith. This is an insult to over two billion Jews and Christians alike and must be reversed."
Both resolutions were immediately condemned by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as "another hallucinatory decision" by the U.N. body. He added: "To say that Israel has no connection to the Temple and the Western Wall is like saying that China is not connected to the Great Wall, or that Egypt has no connection to the pyramids. I believe that historical truth is more powerful and that truth will prevail."
WCICC, which represents over 40 million Evangelical Christians worldwide and over 13,000 global PJTN Watchmen, recently called upon UNESCO to condemn the strategic and deliberate destruction of ancient artifacts buried beneath the Temple Mount. This destruction has been carried out by the Islamic Waqf for over a decade in an attempt to physically destroy any archaeological evidence in order to deny any Jewish connection to the holiest site in Judaism and Christianity.
WCICC's Archbishop Dr. John Lupoli commented, "Once again, it appears that the biased leadership of the United Nations/UNESCO are denying the infallible Word of God, ignoring both the Torah and the Old and New Testaments, by rejecting the archaeological and historical evidence of the Temple Mount's Jewish history. The continuing onslaught of Muslim influence and cowering of the leadership at the United Nations is a disappointment, to say the least. I call on UNESCO to reverse its tainted vote and position on the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount and all of Jerusalem, historically and presently belong solely to the Jewish people."
Cardoza-Moore also noted today that, "UNESCO's resolution sets a dangerous precedent. Denying Jewish history to the holiest place in Judaism, The Temple Mount, also denies Christianity's historical and biblical connection to that holy site as well. This effort is likened to the Islamist group ISIS destroying an eighteen hundred year old church in Syria and other Christian holy sites in Iraq and Egypt. UNESCO's stated mission is to ensure peace as well as protect the integrity of historical sites around the globe. In the case of Israel, it has shown a blatant double standard. The Bible, a book recognized by the Smithsonian Institute as one of the most accurate historical documents, mentions The Temple over 200 times, as it relates to Israel, the Jews and Christianity. Additionally, the Arch of Titus, that stands as a witness to the destruction and pillaging of The Temple by the Romans in 70 CE, is also completely disregarded as historical revisionists re-write documented history."
