False rumors about Israel's designs on a site held sacred by both Jews and Muslims helped trigger the bloody wave of attacks plaguing Jerusalem, but a tangible plan by six Arab nations to purge the Jewish State's claim to its holiest location will be voted on Wednesday by the United Nations' cultural arm.
...UNESCO initially approved a resolution designating Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem and the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron as “integral” parts “of Palestine” in 2010. That decision prompted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to ask, “If the places where the Jewish nation’s forefathers and mothers – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Leah and Rachel – were buried 4,000 years ago is not part of the Jewish nation’s heritage, then what is a heritage site?”

John Kerry tweeted about UNESCO on October 18th.
"The US is a proud candidate for reelection to UNESCO's Executive Board + I'm grateful to have gotten to talk w/ PermReps today in Paris."
"1/2 We are a UNESCO founding member, and remain committed to strengthening it's role in promoting peace and security."
Speaking about tweets, the Daily Signal writes about a tweet that was replaced.
Posting on Oct. 15, the State Department on its official twitter account correctly characterized the attacks, advertising remarks by Secretary of State John Kerry at Indiana University. “Secretary @JohnKerry addresses the tragic, outrageous attacks on civilians in Israel and the West Bank,” the tweet read.
However, the tweet was almost instantly taken down, and replaced with a more anodyne version, referring simply to “recent attacks.”
Hey, as long as tweets are being replaced, can I ask for the tweet "1/2 We are a UNESCO founding member, and remain committed to strengthening it's role in promoting peace and security. to be replaced with "1/2 We are a UNESCO founding member, and remain committed to strengthening its role in promoting peace and security."
(Note the absence of the apostrophe in "its.")
