Anyone else see the irony of the UNESCO annoucement?

The Trump trolls are cheering this announcement because of perceived anti-Semitism, yet they worship neo Nazis and white supremacists. Groups that literally want to, and have past histories of murdering large groups of Jewish people!

Stop the island, I want to get off!

1. Part of his base are

the evangelicals and they're the ones being catered to here.

And the antisemitism is NOT perceived. They actually called for a vote to make the Western Wall - the holiest site to Jews - part of the Temple Mount which would put it under Palestinian control (putting the Palestinians in control of the Mount was the stupidest thing Israel has ever done - and it was done in the hopes it would bring peace). Thankfully the Secretary of the UN put a stop to that bullshit.

They DID do it to the Cave of the Patriarchs - a site that has been holy to Jews for many hundreds of years BEFORE ISLAM EXISTED. Sell their atrocious record of antisemitism to those who don't know better.

2. "anti-semitism" and "pro Israel" go together with Evangelicals


You have to understand that Israel is a necessary component of their End-Times agenda.

Jews are still going to Hell, but with the exception of a "remnant" of 144,000 Jews who will be deemed worthy.

It's really kind of twisted, but their "pro-Israel" stuff is primarily about the functional role of Jews in bringing about the key events which precipitate Jesus coming back.

7. Yes, but you say "get us all killed" like it's a bad thing


You misunderstand. Getting us all killed IS the plan.

8. Can we just give them their own island and let them kill each other?

And then we can spare the rest of humanity?

9. Funny you should say that...


But, unfortunately, they believe this planet was, in point of fact, given to them as that island.

6. Its all politics.

Trump is looking to use Israel as an excuse for backing away from the UN. UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization is known for its designation of world heritage sites, and it promotes sex education, literacy, clean water and equality for women.


In July, Unesco declared the ancient and hotly contested core of Hebron, in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, as a Palestinian World Heritage site in danger, a decision sharply criticized by Israel and its allies. And in 2015, Unesco adopted a resolution that criticized Israel for mishandling heritage sites in Jerusalem and condemned “Israeli aggressions and illegal measures against freedom of worship.”

U.S. funding cuts to UNESCO now run $500 million over disputes about Israel’s policies regarding religious sites in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Trump wants us to believe that this is "anti-Israel bias" from UNESCO.
