Diaspora Jews Livid at PA Bid to Claim the Kotel at UNESCO

Diaspora Jewish groups have reacted with outrage to an Arab initiative in UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization) to claim the Kotel (Western Wall) as a Muslim site.

Israeli officials have already expressed their anger at the provocative proposal to "Islamize" yet another Jewish heritage site in Israel. The Israeli government is reportedly working hard behind the scenes to have the proposal shelved, while Israel's Ambassador to UNESCO blasted the "Palestinian culture of lies."
