Israel totally isolated at the UN
|The U.N. General Assembly on 1 December overwhelmingly adopted a resolution calling Israel's imposition of "its laws, jurisdiction and administration" on Jerusalem illegal. The assembly voted 145-1 to adopt the resolution. Only Israel voted against it, and the United States abstained together with Nauru, Micronesia, the Marshall Islands and Angola.
The resolution said Israel's decision to impose "its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem is illegal and therefore null and void and has no validity". It deplored the transfer by "some states" of their diplomatic missions from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move the assembly said was contrary to a U.N. Security Council resolution on the undecided status of Jerusalem.
