Press Release 7.10.17
NEW YORK (7/10/2017) Laurie Cardoza-Moore, United Nations Special Envoy for the World Council of Independent Christian Churches (WCICC) which represents over 45 million Evangelical Christians worldwide and president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN) released the following statement in response to UNESCO’s decision on Hebron:
“UNESCO has once again proven that they are not interested in protecting historic sites globally, but instead, blatantly disregarding over 3,500 years of documented history, they are more interested in their outrageous attempts at revisionist history,” stated Ms. Cardoza-Moore.
Ms. Cardoza-Moore further stated that, “The Tomb of the Patriarchs, is the burial site of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of Judaism and Christianity. Abraham purchased this tomb from Heth for 400 shekels in order to bury his wife Sarah upon her passing. King David was anointed King of Israel in this city. Christians and Jews around the world must contact their Ambassador at the UN and demand that the UNESCO rescind this statement immediately.”
The WCICC is calling on UN member states to cut the funding from this anti-Semitic organization immediately. Instead of protecting our shared history and values, UNESCO has become the mouthpiece for global Jew Hatred. Their latest motion which suggests that Hebron and the Cave of the Patriarchs are Palestinian Heritage sites is both pathetic and offensive to history and the billions of Jews and Christians worldwide. There can be no place for such hatred within a world organization that exists to foster peace and understanding and protect history. It’s time to defund UNESCO once and for all.”
Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), a 501c3 non-profit organization, was established to educate Christians about their Biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel, utilizing powerful film and video presentations, a variety of grassroots rallies, events and speaking engagements to facilitate dialogue between the Christian and Jewish communities in support of the State of Israel and against global genocidal anti-Semitism. In recent months the organization has led the struggle against BDS in America with a wave of state resolutions and the upcoming 2017 release of a new documentary film “BOYCOTT THIS!” that will expose the truth behind the BDS movement.
