Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Oct. 19, 2016, in the wake of UNESCO’s resolution erasing the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount, that his government would help fund the Temple Mount Sifting Project of the Ir David Foundation.

UN Security Council Resolution 465 of Mar. 1, 1980, condemned Israel for its “settlements” and rejected Israeli attempts to “change the physical character” of “the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967, including Jerusalem.”
UN Security Council Resolution 478 of Aug. 20, 1980, “censured” the Israeli law defining united Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and called on all states to withdraw their diplomatic missions from Jerusalem.
