Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday sharply criticized the UN General Assembly's planned vote, which seeks to reject U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and called it "a house of lies."
The UN General Assembly is set to meet on Thursday at 5 P.M. Israel time (10 A.M. EST) for an emergency discussion on the unilateral American recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Turkey and Yemen requested the meeting after an Egyptian draft resolution against the recognition was presented to the Security Council and was vetoed by the United States, although the 14 other members of the council voted for it.
