UNESCO Teacher Prize Has Several Worthy Recipients

The UNESCO-Hamdan Prize for Outstanding Practice and Performance in Enhancing the Effectiveness of Teachers is a yearly prize awarded to the best and most effective teachers in the world and this year I have identified, and nominated, a few individuals who really stood out to me. The following is my nomination, in full, for this award.

I would like to nominate the following world leaders for this teaching prize: Abdelmalek Sellal (Prime Minister of Algeria), Habib Essid (Tunisian Prime Minister), Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah (Emir of Kuwait), Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Prime Minister UAE), and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi (President of Egypt) for the prize. All of these people have shown the world that they truly are amazing educators, by their work educating us on their rewritten history of the Kotel actually being named al-Buraq Plaza.

I never knew that the holiest site in my religion was actually a square named after a horse, and I sincerely thank these men and their personnel on the UNESCO Executive Board for showing me this glaring failure in history. I feel so educated now and thankfully I finally know the real truth about the last remaining wall of the Temple and the holiest spot in Judaism and I sincerely apologize for me, as a Jew, going there and praying.

I can’t believe I prayed at a site that should, as taught by these men, solely be used for prayer by Muslims to Muhammad. I of course would never dream of praying on the Temple Mount so my praying at the al-Buraq Plaza brings unimaginable shame to me.

In addition I apologize for the Muslim burning of the Tomb of Joseph. I should have stopped them from burning what these men told me is a Muslim holy site, and it is clearly my fault. I hope these kind and amazing leaders and educators win this prestigious award from such a wonderfully led organization.

Knowing UNESCO my nomination probably will be accepted and these horrific, oppressive, and revisionist dictators will be honored by the UN, but what else is new.
