Whose Jerusalem is it?

The Israeli Declaration of Independence states:

THE STATE OF ISRAEL will be open for Jewish immigration and for the Ingathering of the Exiles; it will foster the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; it will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; it will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and it will be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations.

Israel has lived up to these values as well as – often better than – other countries espousing such beliefs. All countries miss the mark and so, of course, has the Jewish state. But few countries try so hard or feel so acutely and try to mitigate so thoroughly their failures.

 

Freedom of religion – and fidelity to universally accepted history – is not a strong suit of the Palestinian Authority. You remember the Palestinian Authority, right? The “moderate” governing authority in the West Bank?

Palestinian Media Watch has put together a list of 97 times in 2011 and 2012 in which Palestinian leaders and clerics have denied the historical existence of a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. And that’s just the 97 times they were able to document.

The goal is obvious: to read the Jewish people out of the history of Jerusalem. Of course, this also reads Christians out of the history of Jerusalem, as important parts of Jesus’ life would be necessarily untrue without a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

Whether you believe the biblical accounts of history or not, the Temple is simply not up for argumentation. It existed. Aside from the extensive archaeological record on and around the Mount itself (and elsewhere throughout Israel), documentation exists from other contemporaneous cultures.

The problem is that we’re left to argue fact and history with people who have no interest in either. Palestinian leadership has demonstrated multiple times – as with Mahmoud Abbas’ frequent denials of the Holocaust – that it is willing to tell any falsehood and deny any fact in pursuit of its vendetta against the Jewish people.

According to Palestinian leadership, there is no place in Jerusalem for anyone but Muslims. According to the State of Israel, all holy places are to be protected and worshippers to be accorded freedom to worship. You tell us: whose Jerusalem sounds better?

    In my view,there is one, overidding Truth:
    Everything . . every thing. . we experience, feel,obseve, KNOW without doubt . . is inbued in the human soul. It is not an assignment; it is a
    gift and a reminder that we are not the responsible donor of life, we are the recipient.

    Israel is God’s chosen land; the Jews are His chosen people. They are devout worshipers and the penultimate creatures who “get” God, really get Him. That they have survived such hardships; that they continue to live in the face of such threats; that they are willing to die for their beliefs is proof enough for me that they will
    survive. Whether or not man chooses to neglect them; whether or not they are eradicated by the monstrous and barbaric, I firmly believe that God, their God and mine, will raise them up and honor their devotion to His love. I am a Christian. I stand with Israel.

    Jerusalem belongs to the Jews.It was given to them in Genesis 15:18 Unto thy seed have I given this land,from the river of Egypt unto the great river,the river Euphrates.Again in Genesis 13″14,15 lift up now thine eyes,and look from the place where thou art northward,and southward,anr eastward,and westward:For all the landwhich thou seest,to thee will I give it,and to thy seed forever.Psalms 105:11 Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan the lot of your inheritance.Just because they ‘squatted’on this land for generations,doesn’t automatically make it theirs.

With all the money they (Palestinians) are receiving from Obama they need to leave other people alone.I live in the United States but I dearly love Israel. I pray for you all.

      The total area of Land of the Canaanites, the Amorites, the Perizites, the Girgashites, the Jebusites, the Hivites and the Hittites, promised by theLord God to the descendents of Avraham, Isaac and Jacob FOREVER according to Moses extends to the River Euphrates. Although the Israelites have not yet fully acquired all of theLand area promised, I believe that when the Jewish Messiah comes again, He IS theOne to secure all of that Land area for Israel. Even during theReign of Solomon, BenDavid, theKing of Israel; all of the nations which surrounded theKingdom of Israel, PAID Tribute to King Solomon in Jerusalem. And furthermore, theDay of theLord as described in theBook of theProphet Malachi and also described in the NewTestament Book of theRevelation IS, I believe, a prelude to theComing of theMessiah of Israel with all theSaints.

    Jesus will once again stand on the temple mount and the abomination (the gold dome) that the Muslims have built will crumble like dust. Islam has no claim on anything in the state of Israel. They are flase prophets. May the Lord bless Israel and the descendants of Isaac. If Abraham had not sinned by sleeping with Hagar we wouldn’t be in this mess.

    At the right time, like a good father fighting for his family, God will intervene and restore Jerusalem to its rightful owners. The Jewish Nation. However far they have wandered from Him, He will bring them back. God’s promises never fail. Jerusalem was chosen by God as the centre of the world and given to Jews to care for. God loves the Palestinians too but Jerusalem belongs to His chosen people and will one day be transformed to receive The New Jerusalem, the Bride of the Saviour.

    Americans have are misinfromed view of much of Islamic practice today. Islam is not tolerant of christians and Jews. forced conversions are being attempted and Christian leaders jailed in Gaza to Pakistan to convert to Islam. Only one version of Cristianity and Judaism is allowed the Koran’s version. This sort of harsh jihadist Islam is dominating not just Gaza but the West Bank. Obama is brokering deals with Russia, who has abandoned their Tartus naval base and may be leaving Assad without key support;Obama has announced America will not support Israel in anyway if Israel decides to attack the Iranian nuke weapons plants. This apparent trade with the Russians demonstrates clearly Obama’s belief that Assad is no better or worse than Netanyahu and the Zionists. Obama quite simply has no value for democracy that generates equal opportunity, he probably doesn’t believe it is possible he has set out to establish sameness through Religious and ideologically syncratic notions based on the possibility of redistributing wealth. Freedom of Religion is diametrically composed in the theocratic nations Obama is legitimizing and in the case of Israel attempting to deligitimize freedoms he believes is historically incorrect.

      The earth is the LORD’s, because He made it, (Psalm 24:1). However,God promised the land of Israel to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants. Because it is His, He can give it to whomever He wants. (Genesis 17:19-21; 28:13-15) In fact, God appeared to Isaac and to Jacob in order to reconfirm His promise to them. God changed Jacob’s name to Israel, (Genesis 32:28).

      For those who believe and follow Islam their history begins when Muhamoud founded the religion of Islam, long after Our Lord Jesus the Christ, only son of the One True God, was born, died and rose again from the dead. Our Lord himself was not born until 3-4 thousand years after the beginning of the Jewish Faith, and the bequest of Israel to the Jewish people by G_d.
      Compare the 2 and see what a long and faithfilled history the Jewish people have compared to that of Islam.

      It is no surprise whether Mahmoud Abbas or his intimate friend, Ahmadinejad of Iran, often deny the Holocaust. Becuse both men have one thing in common, the destruction of Israel. So it is only uninformed individuals that expect that Abbas and Ahmadinejad would tell the truth about Jerusalem after learning from history pages, or ask historians, that Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital, is its capital, and would remain as its capital,until the end of the world! Blessed be Israel and its capital Jerusalem!

    God gave the promise of Isreal including Jerusaleum to Abraham through Issac. Issac as we all know is the Father of the Jewish people. Jerusaleum belongs to the Jews. I know there is a lot of war and problems but she will never be destroyed again. The scripture talks about in the last days how God would bring His people from all corners of the earth back to Isreal. This is happening and I’m so thankful to be able to see prophacy fufilled.

    Of course Muslims of the negative and hate type are against the Jewish people, because they are Gods chosen race, and those who hate are of Satans chosen race. The wars are always going to occur until the end of the age that Jehovah speaks of through His word, Jesus Christ, who by the way, was also born Jewish. If it were not for that race of chosen ones, we would all be damned to hell as those who are conditioned to hate will one day recognize as their fate.
    What most people don’t know is the Lord will protect this race as they are part of God’s covenant.We also have been blessed with the countless blessings that the Jewish people have given to our country. I stand with them proudly but not arrogantly, in the name of our great God, Jehovah, and if necessary, I will die with them too, if that be the end. I am not Jewish, I am a Christian and my prayers and love are with them, always.

    What the Palestinian don’t even know is that Israel belong to the jews ever since 1888. Long before the Palestinian became Palestinian.
    They need to read the Bible.

      The Palestinians have been there long before 1888, however, they won’t realize or believe that they are already part of Israel. Per Biblical times, they have never in history had a land of their own.

    Israel’s declaration sounds somewhat like the US constitution. Freedom of religion is being squashed in US and Israel. Israel belongs to the Jewish people as ordained by God almighty. The Holy word proclaims this. I am one American Christian who loves Israel amongst many others.

    Who owns Israel and Jerusalem? Let God’s Word answer that question:

    Levitcus 25:23 “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.”

    The book of Exodus records how the Israelites were living in bondage in the land of Egypt, and under the leadership of Moses, the Lord gave the Land to Israel, which had been occupied by many other “ite” nationalities: As Pharoah was force to let God’s people go…
    Exodus 8:1, “And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.”

    God will, in these last days, fight against anyone who tries to take he land away from the Jews, How can anyone bargain away God’s land “for Peace”? God will defend His own.

    When He brought the Jews back into the land after they had been exiled for hundreds of years, and gave the land (including Jerusalem) back to the JEWISH people for a NATIONAL Homeland (Balfour Treaty) after W.W.W.II, May 15, 1948, He planted them there to stay, and the Devil himself can do nothing to root them out again–they have been PLANTED in the land!

    Exekiel 15:17 “Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.”

    Jeremiah 32:37 “Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:
    38 And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:
    39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:
    40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.
    41 Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good,…

    and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.”

    My generation has lived to see Israel gathered from out of the nations where they were scattered, and brought back into the land of Israel; which God promised to Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. The children of Israel were delivered out of Egyptian Bondage (see the book of Exodus). Israel will have to go through the great Tribulation before she says, “Blessed is he that cometh in the Name of the Lord (Jesus), but that day, too, will come to pass and at that time, all Israel will be saved.

    Romans 11:26, “And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:” (KJV)

    WHAT A DAY THAT WILL BE! But, until then, they are in the land to stay! Soon, they will once again rebuild their Temple, even as they did before Jesus Christ came the first time.

    Daniel 9:25 “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.” (KJV)

    Can any man fight against God almighty?

    It doesn’t matter how much any group chooses to say Jerusalem belongs to any group other than the Jews, the facts stated in the Holy Bible make it clear that Jerusalem is God’s city on earth and his chosen people (Jews) is the group to whom the city belongs. There is Bible prophesy that point out at the end times that the Dome of the Rock the Muslims now control will bereturned to the Jews. The Muslims have illegally claimed that space holy to their religion which wasn’t even established until the 6oo’s AD. God is in control. No matter what any one claims the Holy Land will one day be back in total control of the Jews! As a Christian, I will always be on the side of the Jews!

Christians wake up and preach the Gospel because Yeshua is about to return and His people need to know before its too late. Israel and its people must be a burden in every believer’s heart-help our brothers and pray!

    the nations attack to try and take Jerusalem away
    from Israel. G-d promised the land which includes
    Jerusalem to the Jewish people. Not to the

    I want to say that Jerusalem belongs to the Jews because that is what GOD says and not what I say. I don’t understand why it seems to always be an issue at hand by the palestinians/muslim world. There are countries all over this world that have lost land because of wars and the land will never be returned again. America could say the same thing and could be fighting continuously about it. I believe that if the muslims really cared about the state of the palesinians that they would/should give up some land for their fellow brothers.

    Jerseleum is God’s city,it belongs to no body really, it’s the city of David.
    It was promised to the Israelites but it has been
    a city that has birthed 3 major religons.
    Judism,Christanity & Islam.
    The movie “The Kingdom of Heaven” said it best.
    “The idea of Jerseulem is here in one’s head and
    here in one’s heart~no one can change that”
    Modern day Jerseleum should not belong to anyone.
    It shoud be a free city monitored by a UN peacekeeping force.

      The UN has no business in Jerusalem. God did not give it the UN. It was in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah that Abraham was willing to sacrifice is promised son Isaac… and where God’s sacrifice of His son Jesus as promised died and was resurrected. This in of itself is why Jerusalem has always been a stumbling block to the nations through out history. It’s a spiritual battle and one the God wins before the end of time.

    I have no doubt that the holocaust happened. Jerusalem belongs to Israel.

    Jerusalem belongs to Israel-God’s beloved
    people. As for Muslims, they have no right to
    it.

    Jerusalem belongs to Israel. Always has until the Romans destroyed their temple.The Palestinians deny history and only have their own radical interests and hatred at heart.

    Prophecy about Jerusalwm is written and sealed by God. Nobody can change the course. Let us watch and see who has dominion.

    From the beginning of time, God gave all of Israel to Abraham and ALL of his descendents through eternity. This means ALL of Israel which includes Jerusalem.

    I agree with Rabbi Greenberg. Jerusalem belongs to Israel. I keep writing about it in my blogs.

    The truth is that under Israeli government there has been a protection and open religious freedom for Jews, Christians and Muslims in the Jewish State.How many synagogues are protected under Muslim rule?
    What is the doctrine for other religions. This time Rabbi Greenberg is on target, the sentence “there is no place in Jerusalem for anyone but
    Muslims” says it all, unlike the current Israeli
    policy, which historically protected all religions.
