UNESCO to vote on new controversial report on Jerusalem

Some wore those red "Make American Great Again" caps.

In the crowd, Ruth Cohen thrust her arm in the air during Trump's address and applauded vigorously when it ended.

"When these divisions carry over into UNESCO, an Organization dedicated to dialogue and peace, they prevent us from carrying out our mission", she continued.

"Israel has been using archeological claims and distortion of facts as a way to legitimise the annexation of occupied east Jerusalem", he added.

The French activists preferred to focus their battle on their objection to France's stance on the issue, thus demonstrating near the ministry's Invalides site, rather than generally condemning UNESCO members' approach by rallying in-front of UNESCO headquarters.

Israel was fumed at the resolution, charging it denies the Jewish link to the site because it referred to the site only by its Muslim name.

The organization is working to encourage Israeli Americans with dual citizenship to vote by absentee ballot.

"UNESCO's absurd resolutions on Jerusalem are sending a unsafe message, and are actually praised by terrorist organizations like Hamas", said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, the Geneva-based non-governmental monitoring group. "No one thinks Donald Trump supports people that are anti-Semitic".

The newspaper pointed out that construction was stopped during the recent visit of US President Barack Obama to Israel, for Shimon Peres' funeral. "We know Israel is willing to deal". The group is funded by private donors. On Wednesday, he delivered a minute-long video to the rally, playing up his connections to Judaism through his daughter's marriage, saying it enhanced his respect for the faith.

The evangelical community, which is strongly supportive of Israel and usually reliable Republican voters, is split over Trump's candidacy, particularly in light of his remarks bragging about groping and kissing women without their consent. Subsequently, Brazil and Mexico, which voted in favor, voiced regret for their decision, and Italy, which abstained, later said it should have voted "no".

The decision comes at the heels of a similar resolution being passed last week. Israel had pushed for a roll call vote on the matter. With between 200,000 and 300,000 American voters living in Israel and the West Bank, Republican volunteers believe there may be enough votes to make a difference in some key swing states if the results are close.

Donald Trump's adviser on Israel said he believed the USA presidential candidate agreed with him that Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank were not illegal, contrary to worldwide law. "Israel is our most cherished ally".

Settlements in the West Bank are deemed illegal under global law and major stumbling blocks to peace efforts as they are built on land seized in the 1967 Middle East war and which the Palestinians see as part of their future state.
