"Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, whether the UN wants it or not," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday morning ahead of a planned emergency vote at the UN on a resolution denouncing US President Donald Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital .

"The UN is a house of lies, Netanyahu said at a ceremony inaugurating a new hospital in Ashdod. "The state of Israel blankly rejects the resolution, even before it is passed."
