The UN Hearts Israel

CA writes:

It's going to be hard for those anti-UN wingnuts to attack the UN on the basis of reflexive hostility to Israel:

Money quote:
Israel's excavation work at the Mugrabi Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem is being carried out in accordance with international standards, according to the report drafted by a team of UNESCO experts who came to Jerusalem to expect the controversial dig. Sources in the UN said the report, which will be published on Wednesday, accepts Israel's claims that the excavations do not harm the Temple Mount compound, and support the legality of the work.
CA continues: The only criticsm is that the Israelis acted unilaterally and didn't want any outside input. Sounds kind of like a certain Republican president we know. (Not to mention many shul adminsitrations I've had the misfortune to work with.)
