Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday said he would continue to ignore the international community's condemnation of Israeli construction plans across the Green Line, in an interview with Channel 2. "The Western Wall is not occupied territory, and I don't care what the United Nations says," Netanyahu said. "We are living in the Jewish State. The capital of the Jewish state, for 3,000 years, has been Jerusalem. I want to say it clearly."

Netanyahu also made an appeal for votes, just one month before elections slated for January 22. "On election day, Israeli citizens will send a message, not only domestically but also to the international community," he said. "Do you know who will be paying attention to the election results? Ahmadinejad, Nasrallah, Mashaal, they'll wait for polls to close and for results to be publicized. And they'll want to know if the prime minister was strengthened or weakened."
