The latest video from Latma,  an Israeli group that produces political satire, is a spoof on a recent UNESCO resolution  to officially declare Rachel's Tomb to be a mosque and demand that Israel remove the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel's Tomb from its list of holy heritage sites.

In Latma's new production, a mock UNESCO officials announces, that the Matriarch Rachel was a Muslim, the United Nations has decided that the U.S. Congress is a mosque and that Islam, which actually began in the 7th century when Mohammed lived, began 3,500 years ago.
