Netanyahu speaks at Jerusalem Day ceremony, says "Israel without Jerusalem is like a body without a heart," adds that those who want to divide Israel's capital are misguided.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that Israel will continue to build and develop the capital city of Jerusalem.
Speaking a Jerusalem Day ceremony at Ammunition Hill, Netanyahu said that "Israel without Jerusalem is like a body without a heart."
"The people who say that we should split Jerusalem believe that this would bring peace," he said. "They believe it, but they are wrong... Jerusalem is the heart of the Jewish people and it will not be divided."
In my not so humble opinion, the Palestinian Arabs could have had the eastern section of Jerusalem for a capital of a Palestinian state, if they were willing to accept a state for themselves in peace next to the Jewish one. The fact of the matter is that they have, time and again, refused to live in peace next to their Jewish neighbors.
This being the case they have forfeited any consideration regarding a possible Palestinian capital in the city of Jerusalem.
Let them make their capital in Ramallah.
