    Folks shouldn’t covet this ‘bread crumb’ given to show they don’t really hate Israel, even though they took away… ‘officially’ disassociated Jerusalem, and Hevron, (where Abraham PURCHASED land, and he, Issac & Jacob are buried with their wives) from the Jewish people AND the Jewish State!

    Fu(k UNESCO, and the donkey they road in on.

    Israel’s Volcani scientists and researchers have done more in agricultural development and food production that deals with harsh climates, water limitations and greater production yield per acre than any other one group of people in the world. This ‘acknowledgement’ means little, when the entire world already knows Israel is the leader in agricultural technologies.
