Because of this interview, Prime Minister Netanyahu has promised to help our project get the funding that we needin order to continue our research and publish our findings.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adopted a biased and political resolution that disregards Judaism’s historic connection to the Temple Mount, casts doubt regarding the Jewish connection to the Western Wall, and protests against the Israel Antiquities Authority’s attempts to supervise (in order to preserve the antiquities) the construction work on and around the Temple Mount.
This is a purely political resolution that was composed by Palestinian officials and was accepted by UNESCO as is. It seeks only to preserve the heritage of Islam, and while this is important, UNESCO must not do this at the expense of Jewish and Christian heritage and culture. This resolution does not recognize the daily reality of Jerusalem or the Temple Mount, and its political agenda is in opposition to UNESCO’s own charter and purpose of protecting and promoting science, culture, education and heritage. We have proof that the First and Second Temple existed. For more information, check out our blog.
