UNESCO Resolution was about occupation


PARIS - A Palestinian representative to UNESCO defended on Tuesday the omission of any reference to Jewish claims to the Temple Mount in a contentious resolution passed last week about Jerusalem.
Mounir Anastas told reporters in Paris, where UNESCO is headquartered, that the vote was "about occupation."
Israel has protested the resolution's failure to include any reference to the site where al-Aqsa Mosque stands as revered by Jews as the Temple Mount, or the site where two ancient temples once stood.
