Arabs Try to End Israel Sovereignty of Jerusalem; Submit Resolution for UN to Deny Israeli Control

Arab states plan to contest Israeli sovereignty over all of Jerusalem at the upcoming UNESCO Executive Board meeting in Paris, the Jerusalem Post website reports today (March 30, 2017).

The resolution -- due for a vote on May 1 -- states: "Any action taken by Israel, the Occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction, and administration on the city of Jerusalem, are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever."

Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, and Sudan submitted the resolution on behalf of the Palestinians.

It was drafted just as U.S. President Donald Trump is seriously weighing relocating the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
