Het belang van Jeruzalem

The Jerusalem Post discusses the Muslim call for sovereignty over Jerusalem, and points out that too few Israelis realize that “since the days of King David, the only nation of which Jerusalem has been the capital is the Jewish nation; that there has been an unbroken Jewish presence here since the fifth century; that only under full Israeli sovereignty over the united city has there been freedom of worship for all faiths.” Quoting Jordan’s King Abdullah, who warned last year that ‘All roads in our part of the world, all the conflicts, lead to Jerusalem,’ the editor declares: “We cannot afford to pretend otherwise.”
