UNESCO resolution on Israel toned down

TEMPLE MOUNT WATCH: UNESCO Resolution against Israel softened: "A significant achievement" (Rachel Avraham, Jerusalem Online).
The Temple Mount issue, which caused great uproar previously, will not be mentioned but the resolution will condemn Israeli activity in East Jerusalem and Gaza. Israeli sources noted that the wording was softened and called it a “significant achievement for the Foreign Ministry and Israeli diplomacy in one of the most difficult and hostile arenas for Israel.”
