  • The city of Jerusalem is under the authority of the Israeli Government. The UN should not act towards taking this land from Israel.

  • Land can only belong to one individual, corporation, or (more rarely) government. land cannot belong to all because that is the same as it belonging to nobody. International land is nearly impossible to exploit.

How would the UN be able to take the land from Israel? The peacekeeping forces can't engage in offensive operations and are too inferior to actually beat Israel. And any action by the Security Council can be overturned with a single veto, which the US will definitely use in this situation.
