Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu celebrated his 66th birthday with his wife, Sara, and two sons in Tel Gezer on Saturday.
During the outing with his family, Netanyahu directed a number of statements at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), saying the international agency cannot
erase Jewish history from the land of Israel.
"Attention UNESCO, we are standing here an entire city gate of Gezer, a place written about in the bible, where King Solomon built the walls of Jerusalem," Netanyahu said.
"We have been here for thousands of years and here we will remain, they will not delete our history. Here is where we have been and here is where we will stay," he added.
