The UN stands for "utterly nuts" after the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) passed a draft resolution denying links between Jews, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, Mike Huckabee says.

On his official website, the former Arkansas governor and ex-GOP presidential candidate says the resolution amounts to a disgraceful trashing of Jewish history.

"The resolution strongly condemns Israel for its alleged aggression and illegal measures blocking Muslims access to Al-Haram Al Sharif — the Muslim name for the Temple Mount," Huckabee said.

"They seem to think it belongs historically to Palestine, a recently-created concept that isn't even a real country."

Twenty-four nations voted for the resolution while 24 abstained and six, including the United States, opposed it. A final vote will be taken next week.

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quite sensibly pointed out that those who voted that Jerusalem and the Temple Mount have nothing to do with Jews have 'obviously never read the Bible,''' Huckabee said.

"Or visited the Arch of Titus in Rome, to see parts of the Temple Mount looted by Romans 2,000 years ago that have a Menorah engraved on them. Or, I would add, consulted any of the ancient and difficult-to-access sources of Jewish history, like Wikipedia."

Huckabee also agreed with Netanyahu's quote, "To say that Israel has no connection to the Temple Mount and Western Wall is like saying China has no connection to the Great Wall of China or Egypt has no connection to the pyramids."

"Or to put that in terms American school children can grasp,'' Hucakbee added, "it's like saying Kim Kardashian has no connection to publicity."

"We rightly excoriate Holocaust deniers, so why do we offer money and support to an organization that is hardly any less anti-Semitic in its absurd denial of the Jewish people's historic and religious heritage?" he said.

"It's time for America once again to stand up forcefully beside our staunch ally, Israel. The last time we were silent in the face of attempts to erase Jews from the pages of history, it didn't turn out well."
