Israel cancels UNESCO mission to Jerusalem

Israel foolishly claimed that Palestinians were "politicizing" UNESCO mission to Jerusalem, while the whole situation is political and legal.

The story:
“Foreign Ministry rescinded its offer to let a team from the UN cultural agency inspect historical sites in the Old City of Jerusalem, saying the Palestinians violated a prior agreement that the visit be apolitical.
Israel has canceled a visit by a delegation of inspectors from UNESCO, the United Nations cultural agency, which was supposed to begin an inspection Monday of historical sites in the Old City of Jerusalem.”
