U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement, condemning the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for passing an anti-Israel resolution denying Judaism’s connection to the Temple Mount.

"This insanity shows that Israel’s adversaries are willing to go to any lengths to denigrate our ally. Is it any wonder that the United Nations cannot broker a real solution? Not only does the UN pretend that there is moral equivalency between Israeli citizens and Palestinian terrorists,UNESCO goes out of its way to insult Israel."
