Midbar Kodesh Temple News
Over the years the United Nations has exhibited an unhealthy obsession with just one of its 193- member nations, namely Israel. Since its inception in 2006 the UN Human Rights council has passed 45 resolutions singling out Israel, 5 just this past May. The UN Security council passed 131 resolutions against Israel just between 1967 and 1989, and more since.
