129 nations ignore Jewish ties to Al-Aqsa Mosque, call it solely Muslim

The United Nations General Assembly approved a resolution 129-11 on Wednesday, that disavowed Jewish ties to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and called it solely by its Muslim name of al-Haram al-Sharif.

The text, referred to as the "Jerusalem (Al-Quds) resolution," is part of a push by the Palestinian Authority and the Arab states across the UN system to call the holy site as an exclusively Islamic one.


The United States, which opposed the text, said that the omission of inclusive terminology for the site sacred to three faiths was of "real and serious concern."


"It is morally, historically and politically wrong for members of this body to support language that denies" both the Jewish and Christian connections to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and al-Haram al-Sharif.
