Israeli Deputy Minister for Regional Cooperation Ayoob Kara appears to hold a view of the Almighty as petty and capricious as Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte . The Druze-Israeli Likud politician has declared that the two earthquakes in Italy this week were divine “retribution” for Italy’s support of the UNESCO resolution critical of Israel over its handling of a holy site in Jerusalem.
On a visit to the Vatican when the earthquakes struck, Kara said “I’m sure that the earthquake happened because of the UNESCO decision.”
So God, killed one person, injured 10 people and destroyed countless homes to send a message over an simple UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) resolution criticizing Israel for its handling of the holy site in Jerusalem. The site is called Temple Mount by Jews, and Haram al-Sharif by Muslims.
Kara met with the Pope and insisted that the Pope “strongly disagreed” with the resolution.
