Top UN official refuses to attend Netanyahu’s seminar on Jewish history

Palestinian Information Center

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM – UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process Nickolay Mladenov has declined an invitation from Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu to attend a seminar on the Jewish connection to the alleged temple mount (Aqsa Mosque).

Netanyahu said Friday that he would hold a seminar on Jewish history for all UN personnel and diplomats of countries in Israel in response to the recent UNESCO temple mount resolution.

In April UNESCO adopted a resolution rejecting all Israeli claims about a Jewish connection to the Aqsa Mosque and its western wall and confirming their Islamic historical identity.

“UN staff in Jerusalem know the history of the region, its people and religions all too well,” Mladenov commented on Netanyahu’s invitation in a press release on Sunday.

“If someone wants to issue invitations they should be for Paris and addressed to the ambassadors of the member states of UNESCO there,” he added.
