If a new law is passed through Knesset, Jerusalem can not be divided without a two-third majority vote.
The Ministerial Committee for Legislation approved Sunday a bill proposed by MK Yakov Litzman (United Torah Judaism) stating that the government cannot conduct negotiations with a foreign entity about the division of Jerusalem or its partial relinquishment without receiving the approval of 80 Knesset members — two-thirds of the legislature.
The explanatory portion of the bill states: “Jerusalem is a city that was reunited. It will not be divided and no part of it will be handed over to anyone. Jerusalem’s sanctity was not given to outsiders. This bill prevents the possibility that at any stage in any political process there will be a discussion about the status of the city of Jerusalem, the joy of the people in Israel. Due to past incidents in which there were talks about giving away parts of the city, it is necessary to create a law that will not even allow the possibility as the starting point of negotiations.”
With Jerusalem as a divisive issue in peace talks, some MKs worry that the new bill may hamper negotiations.
Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who heads the Ministerial Committee for Legislation as well as the Israeli peace negotiation team, voted against the law and has stated that she will file an appeal.
MK Zehava Gal-On (Meretz) called the bill “another nail, maybe the last one, in the coffin of the negotiations with the Palestinians,” according to Israeli media reports.
The bill will not go through the Knesset’s legislative process until after the appeal.

If people only could open their eyes and heart, they would see the beauty of the liberation of Jerusalem. The capital of Israel was set free from Islamic occupation in 1967.
Unfortunately, people are blindfolded by Arab propaganda, and a deeply rooted spiritual hatred for the chosen people of God.
[ Blessings for God’s people ] ‘Then you will know that I, the Lord your God, dwell in Zion, my holy hill. Jerusalem will be holy; never again will foreigners invade her.
The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is on shaking foundation, when he has opened for a referendum on the future of the Jewish state.
If a majority of Israelis do no longer want to obey Biblical Zionism, the Government might hand over more land for “peace’. And this time the missiles will not rain down on Southern Israel form Gaza. Now the International community desire to see Islamic Jihad bases on the Mountains of Zion, and in East Jerusalem.
Let us hope that the new law gets a majority in the Knesset. Even after a negative referendum, the capital of Israel will attest stay united as long as 80 members of Knesset hold on to their Zionist convictions.
Behold: God of Israel is watching. He will judge His people.
