Global parliamentarians condemn Unesco over anti-Israel conduct; MP Rev Malani Mtonga signs resolution reaffirming Israel’s legal rights

More than 20 members of parliament from across the globe recently signed on to a strong policy-based resolution reaffirming the modern Jewish State’s legal rights and biblical promises to the Land of Israel and Jerusalem as its eternal and indivisible capital.

Karonga South legislator, Rev Malani Mtonga, was one of parliamentarians who signed the resolution which rejects a recent declaration by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) which they say misinterprets the biblical boundaries and status of the Jewish state and its impact to livelihoods in the Arab region.

A resolution passed weeks ago by Unesco denied the importance of the holy site in Jerusalem’s Old City, known to Jews as the Temple Mount.

Israeli authorities have been angered because Unesco has chosen to recognize the site only by only its muslim name the al-Aqsa mosque.

Rev Mtonga said in an interview that his stand in favour of the State of Israel is the only sensible thing one has to do in seeking a peaceful and tolerant world.

“We all know how the Jewish state has come under heavy aggression for thousands of years. To have them as a nation state since 1948 has proved to us that lasting world peace is possible only if all stakeholders such as Palestinians and other aggressive Arab nations understand and respect ancient borders and cultures,” he said.

The Israel-Palestine statehood has been a contentious global issue since 1948 when the state of Israel was reestablished after thousands of years in diaspora.

The creation of the state of Israel was under the full blessing of the United Nations and all major world powers in a bid of a better and safer world in the aftermath of the World War II.

The parliamentarians were participants in the Israel Allies Foundation’s annual Jerusalem Chairman’s Conference, an event that is also sponsored by the World Jewish Congress (WJC) and the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ).

Lawmakers attending the conference were from the Netherlands, Finland, Latvia, Spain, Switzerland, Lithuania, Slovakia, Denmark, Italy, Portugal, Malawi, South Africa, Uruguay, Costa Rica, and Chile.

Topics that were discussed during the conference include delegitimization efforts against Israel, Palestinian incitement, and the fiftieth anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.

The MPs, who chair Israel Allies caucuses in their countries, also took a strategic, geopolitical tour of Jerusalem and the surrounding areas in Judea and Samaria, including Gush Etzion.

Despite resistance from Palestinian Authority (PA) the gathering resolved that it is ridiculous for any entity on the face of the earth to label Israel as occupiers yet history has it that the Jewish state was over 3000 years ago known as Judea and was inhabited by Jews before wars dispersed them all over the globe.

Kenneth Meshoe, a Member of Parliament in South Africa whose attendance at the conference was condemned in a letter of protest from the Palestinian Authority, stated

“I am here in a place that has been known as Judea for over 3,000 years. To suggest that Jews are occupiers in Judea is no less ridiculous than to suggest that Arabs are occupiers in Arabia.”

Eeeee! You Christians are a bunch of hypocrites, you really DONT LOVE the JEWS, this is false love at its best! The real reason you want a Jewish state is that it acts as a trap, you believe that the gathering of the Jews in Israel is a prerequisite for the Second Coming of Jesus. The idea that Christians should actively support a Jewish return to the Land of Israel, along with the parallel idea that the Jews ought to be encouraged to become Christians, as a means of fulfilling a Biblical prophecy has been common in Protestant circles since… Read more »

We hear that God promised this Jewish race to be as numerous as the stars of heaven. We also read fro the Jewish book that He God has chosen this race to be His children forever. If I may ask. What is the population of the jews compared to the arabs? Obviously the arabs are too many compared to the jews. But what did the promise say about the jewish numbers? It is this same chosen race which denied and killed the only son of God when he came on earth. Up to now they still refuse to accept him… Read more »

BRAVO Malawi! a way to go,,, What Malawi have done is great, we should not try to put opinion on the TRUTH for TRUTH remain independent of man’s opinion. So if we take the whole middle east seriously, Israel boarder extends to Iran and Iraq; so let this chosen race alone and Malawi have just done a right thing

It’s a shame that Malawi signed this paper which sides with Israel, an apartheid state that victimises Palestinians and legal immigrants. Read about how Ethiopian and other immigrants are being abused in Israel. This is the problem when you send reverends to such meetings because all they have read is the Bible, a book that when read literally paints one tribe as God’s chosen and therefore superior to others. This book when read literally promotes the worst kind of violence, eye gouging and bloodshed. What about the suffering Palestinian people? I doubt if South Africa and Cuba were invited to… Read more »

Why you would defend Arabs and Muslims when they are the ones who are responsible for killings millions of African blacks, including in Darfur, is beyond me? Besides castrating and enslaving millions of others throughout history. And Israel took in those Ethiopians, the only non-African nation that has willingly taken in blacks in history.

Afana Zedi you seem to be ignorant of the historical fact. No Arab under the Sun would dispute the fact that it was the Arabs who are occupier. What Hon Mtonga did was not based on his professional but historical facts. It is you Afana, if I would late Mbuye Chakuamba dictum, are a bulutu.

Once again Malawi has chosen to side with the oppresor. During apartheid we sided with the afrikaner govt who were brutalising our fellow blacks and considered then less human. Today we side with israel. I rest my case
