Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the United Nations as a "house of lies" ahead of a vote on Thursday on a draft resolution calling on the United States to withdraw its recognition of al-Quds as Israel's capital.

(reuters) -- "The State of Israel totally rejects this vote, even before (the resolution's) approval," Netanyahu said in public remarks. "Jerusalem (al-Quds) is our capital and we will continue to build there, and foreign embassies, led by the United States, will move to Jerusalem (al-Quds). It will happen."
