On 21st October, the United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted in favor of a resolution condemning Israel. Initially the text included a bid to have the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, recognized as an “integral part” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which was later dropped. The anti-Israel resolution was eventually adopted, with only the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and the US voting against. See below for a breakdown of the vote result:
