America has redeemed itself and restored my faith in its government, for the time being. This week the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has written a draft resolution stating the Kotel, known to most Americans as either the Western Wall or the Wailing Wall, should be declared a Muslim site. With recent remarks from the UN Security council blaming increased violence from Palestinians on “harsh responses”, which were acts of self-defense, I cannot say I am surprised with this latest audacity from this very antisemitic organization.

I have often gone to the Kotel and prayed, and I even worked there for a while. I assure you there is nothing Muslim about the Western Wall.
