The recent pronouncement, by an agency of the United Nations, UNESCO, that the Temple Mount, in Jerusalem, Israel, has no historical connection to its Christian and Jewish roots, demonstrates that politics has now replaced fact at the United Nations, totally ignoring four thousand years of history. The Temple Mount is repeatedly mentioned in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. What the UNESCO members made was a political statement, in support of specific interests, and the truth be damned.
It is important to remember that most of the members of the United Nations are not democracies, and their actions are often at odds with both the truth, and the rule of law. Don't look to UN publications for accurate facts, for they tend to distort history, to serve the political ends of some, which is is a hallmark of dictatorships, of which the world has far too many; they are all members of the United Nations.
If some of the members of the UN said that the world was flat, they would find others willing to agree to that statement, provided that they would reap some political gain by doing so. If you value truth and accuracy, you had best ignore anything coming from the United Nations, when looking for answers.
