Pray for peace in a united Jerusalem

Both the Mount of Olives and the Old city will be under renewed Islamic occupation, if Jerusalem is divided.

Jews, Muslims and Christians can only worship freely in the old city if Zionists remains in control of Jerusalem.

Despite the 3,000-year-old Jewish connection to Jerusalem, many people — including some Israelis — do not fully understand why others, such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, say it should remain the undivided capital of the Jewish state.

On Friday, the Jerusalem chapter of Likud Anglos — a division of the Likud party geared toward English speakers — cosponsored the “Greater Jerusalem” tour with Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely.

CBN News joined nearly 150 people in a close-up look at some neighborhoods in “east” Jerusalem.  The purpose of the outing was to help people understand the dangers of dividing the capital’s Jewish and Arab neighborhoods.

For example, the predominantly Arab neighborhood of Shuafat is 90 meters (yards) from the predominately Jewish neighborhood of Pisgat Zeev.  Issawiya, another Arab neighborhood is 70 meters from Hebrew University on Mount Scopus, and the Arab village of Sur Baher is virtually inside the south Jerusalem — predominately Jewish neighborhood — of Talpiot.  All these neighborhoods are virtually intertwined. The organizers of the tour said creating artificial borders between them is a recipe for disaster.


My comment:

Psalm 122:6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure.

Isaiah 40:1-3
1 Comfort, comfort my people,
   says your God.
2 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
   and proclaim to her
that her hard service has been completed,
   that her sin has been paid for,
that she has received from the LORD’s hand
   double for all her sins.
