«Jerusalem is above politics» and that «Jerusalem is mentioned more than 600 times in the Scripture – and not a single time in the Koran».
This is statements from advertisements in favor of Israel’s position on Jerusalem that appeared in the U.S. press with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s encouragement. «All these advertisements are not a wise move», one senior American official told Haaretz.
The authors of the most recent such advertisements were president of the World Jewish Congress Ronald Lauder and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel. Wiesel called to postpone discussion on Jerusalem until a later date, when there is an atmosphere of security allowing Israeli and Palestinian communities to find ways to live in peace.
The ongoing confrontation with the U.S. administration over construction in East Jerusalem was present in many of the comments made by senior Israeli officials during Independence Day.

The US administration do not not want the Jewish World to tell the truth. Because the truth in no longer the political correct language.
The Obama Administration wants to befriend the Islamic World. To do that, the American political elite use a rhetoric that will please the King of Saudi Arabia.
Since the Koran does not even mention Jerusalem, the Muslim claim to the city is falsehood. Jerusalem is not mentioned by name in the scriptures believed to be Holy in Mecca. The city of King David does not belong to Islam. The Jews are the only true caretaker of Jerusalem. The capital of the state of Israel is today free and open to people of all faiths. Christians are called to support the present Zionist governance over the city, and keep Jerusalem united.
