Stand With Us was founded in 2001 in response to the misinformation that surrounds the Middle East conflict, and the inappropriate often anti-Semitic language used about Israel and/or the Jewish people worldwide. StandWithUs has offices and chapters around the world and is dedicated to empowering Israel supporters with a wide variety of materials, resources and tools in order to be able to effectively combat the growing anti-Israel campaigns and speakers.
"According to Roman Jewish historian Josephus Flavius, after the destruction of Jerusalem in the year 70 CE to put an end to the Great Jewish Revolt, “there was left nothing to make those that came thither believe it [Jerusalem] had ever been inhabited.” Titus wanted to erase the very connection of the Jewish people to the city of Jerusalem and the land of Israel...
If Vespasianus Augustus Titus, the Imperial Roman commander who destroyed the Second Jewish Temple and burned Jerusalem, were alive today to see recurring United Nations Educational, Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) resolutions ignoring the Jewish connection to Jerusalem, he would be very proud to see the product of his handiwork."
So who cares about preserving heritage and historical sites? Apparently not Jordan.
Today in UNESCO, the international body responsible for preserving heritage of world historical sites, Jordan demanded that Jerusalem's status be returned to the way it was prior to June 5, 1967...when Jordan occupied the Old City of Jerusalem, prohibited Jews from visiting their holy sites, and expelled Jews from parts of Jerusalem entirely.
This was a time when Jordan had destroyed the entire Jewish Quarter of the Old City, including 52 synagogues, and had destroyed the ancient 2000 year-old cemetery on the Mt. of Olives.
Apparently, this is what stands behind Jordan's proposed UNESCO resolution that erases an indisputable 3000 year old Jewish link to Jerusalem's Temple Mount and the city as a whole.
