PM Netanyahu said something on Jerusalem Day that is so important for all world leaders to hear. Bibi clears up some confusion about the Jewish capital.
Jerusalem Day Message
Bibi’s Jerusalem Day message? Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish people. It always has, and it always will. Our forefather Abraham passed the “greatest test of faith” in Jerusalem. King David named Jerusalem as the eternal Jewish capital 3,000 years ago. King Solomon built the first Jewish Temple. Where? Jerusalem. Then the Jews who were exiled and returned from Babylon rebuilt the Temple. Then there is the story of Hanukkah and the Maccabees. About 2,000 years later, the soldiers in the IDF recaptured the old city and what remained of the destroyed Temple.
We will not let anyone tell us that Abraham never existed as the father of the Jewish people and passed his greatest test in JERUSALEM. We will not let anyone tell us that thousands of years ago, King David never named Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or that King Solomon never built our first Temple. No, we will not deny our past.
Oh, but the world. The world loves to spread lies about Israel and Jerusalem. The UN is especially good at this game. But the problem is, you cannot erase history. As much as you try, you cannot erase the Bible. You cannot erase thousands of years of tears and prayers that have held Jerusalem together. The UN and much of the world has tried to erase the Jewish connection to Jerusalem, but Bibi’s message is clear: “We are in Jerusalem, and we are here to stay.”
You see, celebrating Jerusalem Day is not just celebrating an isolated event in Jewish history. It is celebrating the chain of events that show the world who Jerusalem really belongs to.
