Jerusalem Day Celebrated: VideoBites
Netanyahu: Israel Will Continue to Build Jerusalem and Keep It United -Barak Ravid & Nir Hasson
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, during a ceremony marking Jerusalem Day, that the Israeli capital will never be divided and that building in Jerusalem will continue. "We will protect Jerusalem," Netanyahu said. "Israel without Jerusalem is like a body without a heart. Our heart will never be divided again."
"A nation willing to sacrifice its heart will convince its enemies that it is willing to give up on everything," he warned, and said that he does not believe that abandoning the Temple Mount to a different power will preserve the freedom of religion. "I know there are people who say that there will be peace if we only divide Jerusalem. I don't believe this," he said. "We will continue to build Jerusalem."
