Israel defeats UN's censoring of Jerusalem exhibition

Danny Danon has scored a victory against the UN's anti-Israel standings that blocked an exhibition recognizing Israel's historic ties with Jerusalem:
The first censored panel noted that “Zionism is the liberation movement of the Jewish people, who sought to overcome 1,900 years of oppression and regain self-determination in their indigenous homeland.”

After a tete a tete that lasted two months, Israel’s permanent mission to the UN, which created the exhibit together with pro-Israel advocacy group StandWithUs, finally gained the upper hand and the censored panel was restored.

“We stood firm that the exhibit on Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the state of Israel, be displayed at the UN,”
said Danon. “It is not possible to censor a significant part of the history and the values of the Jewish nation.

“I am very proud that we stood our ground and achieved a clear victory for the Israeli truth. The days are over when they will try to censor our heritage and demand that we hide the special place of Jerusalem in the history of the Jewish nation and the state of Israel,” he added.

However, the Associated Press reports that hours after the panel was reinstated, Arab and Islamic nations wrote a letter demanding that the United Nations remove the panel on Jerusalem.

The letter, which was spearheaded by the Palestinian mission to the UN and co-signed by the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation, expressed “vehement rejection” of the exhibit’s description of Jerusalem as “the spiritual and physical capital of the Jewish people.”
No surprise there. The PLO and their lackeys are just proving their anti-Israelism continues. Danon and company did the right thing to stand strong on this exhibition and not let it be censored by an organization that's long past its retirement.
