Jerusalem ‘eternal capital of Arab culture’

Traditional Palestinian folklore was showcased on Wednesday, Dec. 29, at the closing celebrations marking Jerusalem as an “eternal capital of Arab culture”.

The two-day festival, held at the Royal Cultural Centre, aimed to enshrine Jerusalem’s status as a permanent capital of Arab culture, according to organizers.

“What we did is the least we can do for Jerusalem, which is under siege from Israel and its allies. We need to tell Israel that Arabs and Muslims will never forget Jerusalem no matter what happens on the ground,” said Khalid Qouze, director of the festival preparation committee.

The Arab League named Jerusalem as the 2009 Arab Cultural Capital, but several organizations and activists have called on the league to adopt the city as an eternal capital of culture.

My comments;

The city of Jerusalem is mentioned more times in the Judeo-Christian Bible than any other place.  It is not mentioned even once in the Koran and in its entire history it was never an important city for “Arab Culture” until 1948 when all of a sudden it became important because Jews had political sovereignty over the Western part and then again in 1967 when a Jewish government gained full political  sovereignty over the united city.

Most Arabs and Muslims wouldn’t care about Jerusalem at all if there wasn’t a Jewish State with its capital there.

Some of the more interesting Biblical passages about Jerusalem include;

1 Kings 11:36
“And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light always before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.”

In this passage God very clearly spells out who Jerusalem belongs to and what its significance is.

In Zechariah 12:2, God warns that;

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.”

God has enemies, and those enemies desperately want to subvert His plan for the salvation and the redemption of the Human Race through His Chosen People, the Jews.  They will do anything and everything they possibly can to disrupt those plans, but their end will be to be cast into the Lake of Fire to spend Eternity with Lucifer and his fallen angels.
