    I was reading over the results of the first UNESCO resolution and the number of countries either for or abstaining (no country changed their vote to ‘Against’) was 50.

    According to the upcoming vote (tomorrow) there are 21 nations that belong to the World Heritage Commitee The PA is making a lot of noise about wanting a united vote or else they will come back with “harsher wording” against Israel and Jerusalem. Reading the list of the member nations of the WHC – the only country I can see voting against the resolution is Poland. (However that’s just a guess). But if for some reason there is only one dissenting vote that would mean that 70 different nations voted for (or said nothing – which is essentially a vote for) erasing Israel’s connection with the Temple Mount and Jerusalem…

    Which got me reading about the number 70.

    Here’s a few links concerning it:

    It will be interesting to see what the final count is of nations for (or abstaining) in these resolutions is. :whistle:

    if this also goes against Israel, it will be interesting to see if Israel comes out from among them and accepts being separate, for the Lord God of Israel and taking a stand on what the God of Israel has done for them.

    Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father's children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and to him shall the gathering of the people be. Gen 49
