Founder of the Palace Pentecostal Chapel International in Ghana Arch-Bishop Charles Kofi Entsuah has criticised UNESCO over its recent 'controversial' resolution, which makes no reference to Jewish ties to a key holy site in Jerusalem.

The executive board of UNESCO last month approved what could be described as the Arab-sponsored resolution, which repeatedly refers to only the Islamic name for a hilltop complex which is also the holiest site in Judaism.

The site is known to Jews as the Temple Mount and Haram al-Sharif to Muslims. The resolution caused Israel to freeze co-operation with UNESCO last month.

Addressing journalists after a three hour intercessory prayers for Israel, Arch-Bishop Charles Kofi Entsuah described the UNESCO''s resolution as weird, arguing that the Temple Mount existed before any religion.

He explained that the Temple Mount was one of the areas Jesus Christ regularly visited to engage in spiritual activities saying it had been captured in the works of many historians such as Tacitus, Josephus and Cicero.

The respected man of God who has been organising pastors for trips to Israel for pilgrimage asserted that denying the existence of the Temple Mount denies the very existince of Jesus Christ and the basis of Christianity.

He thus appealed to the government of Ghana to throw its weight and support behind Israel to kick against the resolution.

He also urged Christians in Ghana to let their voices be heard by condemning UNESCO's decision.

Touching on opportunities that exists in Israel,Archi-Bishop Charles Entsuah emphasised on the need for African leaders to forge ahead with Israel and tap their technological advancements particularly in the area of agriculture to boost the agricultural sector to alleviate their citizens from hunger and joblessness.

According to him, unlike Africa where majority of the countries are endowed with vast arable lands, the farm lands in Israel he said are very rocky and as a result have adopted the use of technology to boost their agricultural sector to feed themselves and export the surplus to other nations.

"It is not enough to travel to Israel on pilgrimage and bring home the Anointing oils for business's. There must be a real spiritual and emotional connection with the land and it's people," he suggested.
