  • Description

    The Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, Mr. Chaim Herzog, on Monday (22 March) accused "certain Arab countries, acting in an atmosphere of blackmail and pressure" of trying to disrupt the co-existence of Jews and Arabs ink Jerusalem.

    Mr. Herzog was speaking at a Security Council debate, called at the request of Libya and Pakistan, to discuss charges that Israel was changing the status of Jerusalem, desecrating holy places and repressing its Arab inhabitants.

    These charges come after weeks of violence, sparked off by an Israeli magistrate's decision to dismiss charges against a group of Jews who tried to conduct prayers on the Temple Mount.

    Jews revere the area as the site of Solomon's temple, destroyed in 70 A.D. by the Romans. It is also the site of the Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest place for Moslems after Mecca and Medina.
