    United Jerusalem Forever 

    Today, Wednesday, May 12 marks the 43rd anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem. It was in May of 1967 that Jews and Christians were finally able to return to the Holy City, after 19 years of exile. It was also the return of Jerusalem as the sovereign capital of the Jewish people after nearly 2,000 years.

     

    Unfortunately, Jerusalem is once again facing enemies at its gates. The whole islamic world and the Palestinians, under the leadership of Mahmoud Abbas and Salam Fayyad continue to attack the Jewish attachment to Jerusalem - they continue to deny the emotional, religious and symbolic attachment of Jerusalem to the Jewish people. We cannot let them succeed. JINewsNet in addition to other many other organisations such as One Jerusalem are here to make sure that truth prevails. It is our mission to give voice to the millions of people across the globe who know that the Muslims and the Palestinians are perpetrating a lie.

    Not only do the Jewish people have ancient historic and religious ties to the Holy City of Jerusalem, but they have been the best custodians of the holy sites of other religions within Israel. Under Israeli government control, Christians, Jews and Muslims have all been allowed to visit their holy sites.Can Abbas and Fayyad claim the same? Remember how the Palestinian mob destroyed the tomb of Joseph while the so-called Palestinian police stood by and watched? Remember how the Palestinians destroyed the Shalom Al Yisrael synagogue in Jericho?

    It is critically important that we remember the destruction of all the Jewish synagogues, schools, and graves in Jerusalem -- perpetrated by Arabs in 1948. We must never allow such atrocities to happen again. On Jerusalem Day, we ask you to reaffirm your commitment to Jerusalem. Make sure all your friends and family know the truth - that Jerusalem must remain the united and undivided capital of the Land of Israel. Use this opportunity to remind Mr. Cameron and Mr. Clegg of the difference between Arab and Jewish sovereignty in Jerusalem.

    Tell the politicians to keep their hands off Jerusalem. Jerusalem must stay as the undivided capital of the Jewish State. Happy Jerusalem Day. With thanks to One Jerusalem for this story

    Israel rejects plan to divide Jerusalem

    JERUSALEM — Israel's foreign ministry said today that a Swedish-led push for the European Union to call for the division of Jerusalem and the recognition of East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state would trip up Europe's own efforts to play a role in Middle East peacemaking.

    "We would like to see the Europeans more involved and playing a role," but it will be more difficult for them to do so if they press ahead, says Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor. "The Swedish initiative does not contribute to promoting the peace process, and all it can do is to marginalize the European role."

    "It will only convince the Palestinians that they can remain the trenches," he adds.

    Israeli diplomats have been working overtime across Europe to stop the document from being adopted when European foreign ministers meet Dec. 7 to set a Middle East policy statement.

    Greater European role
    Several individual European countries have taken a more active role in the peace process in recent weeks. France's Nicolas Sarkozy has been facilitating Israeli-Syrian communication, and German mediators are playing a role in negotiations over a prisoner deal, in which Israel would win the release of its captive soldier, Sgt. Gilad Shalit, who has been held for more than three years by Hamas, in exchange for up to 1,000 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.

    But European policy as a whole has been more of a concern, Israeli officials say. Sweden is at the forefront because it holds the rotating EU presidency through January. Relations between Jerusalem and Stockholm have been chilly since a Swedish tabloid ran a report in August suggesting that the IDF [the Israel Defense Forces] harvested organs from Palestinians held in Israeli custody. Israeli officials asked that the Swedish government officially publicly criticize the sensationalist report, but it declined to do so.

    More recently, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt canceled a planned trip to Israel, Israel's foreign ministry announced over the weekend, apparently due to reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might refuse to meet with him.

    Israel: Swedish draft one-sided
    Quotes from the draft under Sweden's authorship have been sourced by the Israeli press, but no official copy is being provided because it is an internal document, an official at the Swedish embassy in Tel Aviv told the Monitor.

    "We see no reason to comment on an internal draft document. And if there is a comment to be made, it will be made on behalf of the 27 member states and not just Sweden," says Annika Ben David, counsellor at the Swedish Embassy to Israel.

    Israel's problem with the draft is that it is one-sided, a senior Israeli official says.

    "If Europe is thinking of going public on what is final status, why only support one side of the issue?" The official continues, "If you say in your position paper that Israel will have to compromise on Jerusalem, why not come out publicly and say what the Palestinians will have to compromise on? Why not say that Palestinian refugees will have to go back to the state of Palestine, not Israel?"

    EU official: Support for Palestinians
    One European official in Tel Aviv, speaking on background, says that the EU position on Jerusalem does not represent a radical change, but is rather an attempt to show the Palestinians that they have international support for their claim to East Jerusalem as their future capital. In so doing, they hoped to draw Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas back to the negotiating table, despite the fact that the settlement freeze that Netanyahu announced last week did not include East Jerusalem - a prerequisite to peace talks that Mr. Abbas has insisted on.

    "This might be a way to encourage the Palestinians to enter the negotiating process," said the European official. "But I don't think Europe is interested in the recognition of a Palestinian state now, ahead of negotiations. It's more saying, if and when it comes to it, we will recognized East Jerusalem as a capital of a Palestinian state."
