The UNESCO Executive Board’s announcement that it would re-examine the resolution passed last week severing Jewish ties to the Temple Mount didn’t amount to much. The board passed the resolution Tuesday.
The brief decision to re-evaluate the resolution in part reflected Mexico’s announcement to abstain rather than support the resolution.
In last week’s vote, six nations opposed the resolution, 26 abstained, and 24 voted in favor, including Mexico.
On Thursday, then Mexican UN Ambassador Andres Roemer walked out during the vote in Paris. Roemer, who is Jewish, apparently could not support a resolution denying Jewish ties to the Temple Mount.
