3 Christian Holy Sites Obama Helped Give to Muslims

President Barack Obama and his administration sat idly by on Friday while the United Nations Security Council essentially slapped Jews and Christians in the face. Just before Hanukkah and Christmas the Security Council passed Resolution 2334, declaring Israeli rule illegal in East Jerusalem, home to an assortment of holy sites, and other Israeli territories. Presumably the Resolution grants control of the areas to Palestinians by default, 80% of whom are Muslim.

The resolution…

“Reaffirms that the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace…” (CT’s emphasis added, H/T Wikipedia copy of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334)

According to Fox News, this resolution was but the latest in a shocking series of anti-Israel resolutions put out by various U.N. agencies over the course of the year, though this one may have the furthest reaching consequences.

At issue is the fact that the resolution essentially declared all Jewish settlements in the West Bank “illegal,” including in parts of East Jerusalem, particularly the “Old City” which contains a number of sites held sacred by Christians and Jews.

Of those sacred holy sites located in East Jerusalem, three of them are held in special regard by Christians — the Temple Mount, the Western Wall and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
