A new proposal to establish that the Western Wall is part of al-Aqsa Mosque is set to be submitted by the Palestinians to a vote at UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization). The proposal is likely to pass due to automatic Arab-Muslim majority there. The proposal states among other things that the Western Wall is part of al-Aqsa Mosque, and condemns the Israeli government for its call on citizens to bear arms because of the recent wave of terror attacks. (The fact that UNESCO has been discussing this deeply offensive to Jews proposal reveals again the anti-Semitic character of the United Nations and its members. By now, the clause that the Wailing Wall is a holy site for Muslims only has been dropped - it was a ‘normal’ part of the international anti-Israel smear campaign! The text does state that the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Rachel's tomb are 'an integral part of Palestine' - this is fine as all “Palestine”, as it was defined by Romans and by the League of Nations in 1922, is the Jewish ancestral land!)

"Silence or moderate reactions of the world could be interpreted as support for terror… President Abbas has not condemned a single one of the 30 terrorist attacks on Israelis over the last month, and he continues to glorify terrorists as heroes.” - Opposition leader, MK Yitzhak Herzog, said to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon - Even Israeli lefties becoming impatient with the UN "silence” and ‘balanced’ standing!
Yitzhak Rabin was not the angel of peace: Angels only exist in fairy tales. The bullets of the gun which ended his life rewrote his biography: Everything - a glorious military, diplomatic, political career - gathered under the wings of a non-existent peace. The real, complex Rabin disappeared, and a new fictional character took over the narrative...
The real Rabin was not a battlefield hero. Rabin was an excellent staff officer, perhaps the best staff officer who served in the War of Independence.
He was dragged into the Oslo Accords against his will, against his intentions. In the 1992 election campaign, he promised to reach a peace agreement within nine months.

Yigal Amir didn’t murder peace. He doesn’t deserve credit for that achievement, but he can take comfort in the fact that since the murder, the Yigal Amir cloud has been hovering over our decision makers. They realize that every decision to evacuate Jews from the territories entails a heavy, disproportional price, perhaps even the price of their lives.
