Yesha Leaders Write UN,
‘Bible Records Israel as Jewish Land’

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
May 4, 2011

A letter to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon from Yesha Leaders explains that the Bible, the Quran, and international agreements document Israel as being the Land of the Jewish People.

The signatories threatened to sue Ban if he continues “to ignore the historical and legal facts enclosed in this letter and continues with the present unjust and illegal policies of the United Nations.”

Citing the Bible as “recording for all time the awarding of the Land of Israel to the forefathers of the Jewish People by the

Creator of the world,” the letter tell Ban it gives him the “opportunity to correct the deviation of the nations from international law in accordance with the responsibilities of your position and thus obviate the measures undoubtedly to be inflicted on those who act contrary to the Covenant of the Almighty with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”   <continue...>


Jerusalem of Gold

Jerusalem is Israel’s Eternal Capital....
Biblically, Historically & Politically

 For over 3,000 years, no nations or empires but Israel have had their capital in Jerusalem.

 The Bible mentions the name “Jerusalem” nearly 800 times; but not once is it mentioned in the Qur’an.

 The U.S. House in 1990 and the Senate in 1995 passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act recognizing Jerusalem as the spiritual center of Judaism and the undivided capital of Israel, where persons of all religious faiths are guaranteed full access to holy sites. This Act further authorized the United States to move its Embassy to Jerusalem.

  Israel has the sovereign right, like any democratic nation, to allow the building of new houses for its residents anywhere, including all of Jerusalem.
