Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday went to the United Nations to open an exhibit on Jerusalem, sending a message of defiance after the world body rejected U.S. recognition of the city as Israel's capital.The prime minister's remarks followed a vote in the General Assembly in December to reject U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and urge all countries to refrain from following the United States's lead and move their embassies to the city.The exhibit set up in a U.N. hallway featured a sign posted by the United Nations stating that the content of the exhibit does not reflect the U.N.'s view.U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said this was standard practice for all exhibits at the United Nations.
