Al-Masry Al-Youm, Egyptian newspaper - Jan. 14, 2017

 
Headline: "Martyrs for Palestine – an exhibition in Cairo that illustrates the Palestinian cause"
     "The State of Palestine's embassy in Cairo, together with the Egyptian branch of the Fatah Movement, organized the Martyrs (Shahids) for Palestine exhibition… yesterday evening [Jan. 13, 2017] at the embassy.
Artists from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Palestine participated in the exhibition, in addition to Arab children…
[PA] Ambassador [to Egypt] Jamal Al-Shubaki said in a welcoming speech that this exhibition through paintings conveys to the entire world a political message, which is that the Palestinian cause at its core is an Arab cause. He emphasized that the issue of Jerusalem, which is gaining international attention, constitutes a red line, as Jerusalem is the capital city of all Arabs in its human-cultural dimension, and that the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) resolution [of Oct. 13, 2016] confirmed that the conflict in Jerusalem is a human conflict between truth and falsehood.
At the end of his speech, Al-Shubaki emphasized that the Arab nation will not accept any political solution without Jerusalem attaining full freedom.”

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) passed a resolution in Paris on “Occupied Palestine” on Oct. 13, 2016, with 24 countries voting in favor, 6 against, and 24 abstentions. The resolution was later approved by UNESCO's World Heritage Committee on Oct. 26, 2016, in a secret ballot in which ten countries voted in favor of the resolution, two opposed, eight abstained, and one country, Jamaica, was absent.
In the resolution UNESCO refers to the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, only as “Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” and presents it only as a “Muslim holy site.” The resolution condemns “escalating Israeli aggressions” and Israeli “violations” at the site, and calls on Israel “to respect the integrity, authenticity and cultural heritage of Al-Aqṣa Mosque/Al-Ḥaram Al-Sharif… as a Muslim holy site of worship.” The resolution likewise refers to the Western Wall Plaza as the “Al-Buraq Plaza ‘Western Wall Plaza,’” adding quotation marks to the Jewish name for the site.
The resolution was submitted by Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, and Sudan.
The countries voting for the resolution were: Algeria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chad, China, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco, Mauritius, Mexico, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan, and Vietnam.
Those voting against it were: Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, The Netherlands, the UK, and the US.
Mexico later noted for the record that its position on the issue is one of abstention, although the vote count was unaffected.
