Under the direction of Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, MFA Director-General Dore Gold sent a sharp letter of protest to all the countries who voted in favor of the UNESCO resolution concerning Jerusalem.

In the letter, Dir-Gen Gold protested the attempt to erase the Jewish yearning for Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish people, and to Judaism’s holy places.

Dir-Gen. Gold: “The UNESCO resolution has no practical validity. Nevertheless, we will not permit international entities to blur the Jewish people’s connection to its eternal capital.”
