By Danielle Ziri.. An exhibition initiated  by Israel’s permanent mission to the United Nations with the organization StandWithUs and expected to open at the UN headquarters on Monday (April 4, 2016), was partially censored by the international body this weekend. 
Three out of 13 displays put together for the exhibition were disqualified by the UN, including one about Jerusalem, another about Israeli Arabs and a third about Zionism. The Jerusalem poster presents the city as the spiritual and physical capital of the Jewish people. It shows pictures of holy sites and states that “the Jewish people are indigenous to Israel and have maintained a continuous presence in the land since 1000 BC. Jerusalem has been the center and focus of Jewish life and religion for more than three millennia and is holy to Christians and Muslims as well.” Read the full story here.
