Dear R.,
 
Just wanted to make sure you saw this important petition we started on Friday.
 
A UN body has passed a resolution acknowledging Islamic history of the Temple Mount, denying Jewish history at the sacred site.
 
If we don't act now, Judaism could lose its place at the Temple Mount and Israel's standing could be in danger.
 
 
Thank you for your support,

Last week, a UN body issued a resolution on the Temple Mount that ignored the Jewish people's historical connection to the most sacred site in Judaism.
 
UNESCO, the UN body that governs World Heritage Sites, passed a resolution acknowledging only Islamic history of the Temple Mount – ignoring any Jewish history at the sacred site.
 
This UN resolution identifies the holy site solely to Muslims and could undermine Israel's connection to Jerusalem, the eternal capitol of the Jewish people. In the face of this travesty, we must stand up for Israel.
 
 
The Temple Mount is "where the two temples stood for a thousand years and to which every Jew in the world has prayed for thousands of years," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in response to the resolution that is "rewriting a basic part of human history."
 
Make no mistake, Israel's enemies are waging a diplomatic war against the Jewish state at the UN. It is an attack against Israel's legitimacy. 
 
The resolution "seeks to deny the deep-rooted links between the Jewish people and the State of Israel, with their historic capital," said the director of Israel's Foreign Ministry Dore Gold.
 
The UN is trying to rewrite history. If we don't act now, Judaism could lose its place at its most sacred site and Israel's standing could be in danger. Will you defend Israel?
 
 
Thank you for your support,
