Temple Mount Archeologist: UNESCO Resolution an Affront to Science and History

(Jerusalem Post) Daniel K. Eisenbud - On the eve of UNESCO's Wednesday vote in Paris to ratify a resolution denying Jewish ties to Judaism's holiest site, Temple Mount Sifting Project co-founder and archeologist Dr. Gabriel Barkay dismissed the vote as an affront to science and history. Citing volumes of evidence of the First and Second Temples in the Bible, Mishna and by historian Flavius Josephus, Barkay said every synagogue in the world faces the direction of the Temple Mount. "It is a disgrace to anybody who thinks of themselves as a civilized, intelligent person," Barkay said. "It also undermines the connection of Christianity to Jerusalem." "Archeological sites in Syria are blown up and demolished [by Islamic State], and sites in Iraq are being bulldozed away, and what UNESCO is busy with is declarations about Jerusalem and its connection to Jewish heritage," he said. "The Arabs and their supporters have so many more voices, so they can come to the decision that the earth is flat, and they will have a majority."
