Jerusalem, Jewish and Israeli For Sure


Last night my husband and I attended an enjoyable and informative event hosted by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs at the Israel Museum. The main speaker was Ambassador  Dore Gold. Gold, a former ambassador and Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, appointed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now President of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.
The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs is a leading independent research institute specializing in public diplomacy and foreign policy. Founded in 1976, the Center has produced hundreds of studies and initiatives by leading experts on a wide range of strategic topics. Dr. Dore Gold, Israel’s former ambassador to the UN, has headed the Jerusalem Center since 2000.

Gold's lecture centered on debunking six false claims about Jerusalem.



As a quick summary, two important points:

Ambassador Gold proved that according to international law and precedent, there is absolutely no reason to accuse Israel of illegally occupying sic Jerusalem. Gold easily showed how even the Muslims, until very recently, had recognized Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and Jerusalem.

Gold's lecture was extremely clear, informative and entertaining. The illustrations were excellent, and I certainly hope that it will be available online/youtube.

The Biblical Book of Jeremiah, end of chapter 17,
teaches:


If the Jewish people observe Shabbat [the Jewish Sabbath]
then Jerusalem will be ruled by Jews forever (verses 24 to 25).

But if Jews DO NOT observe Shabbat, then the
Land of Israel [literally, Jerusalem] will burn with fire
(verse 27, last verse of chapter).

In the Biblical Book of Joshua, chapter 23, verses 12 to 13,
G_d reveals that:


If Jews intermarry with non-Jews, then He will NOT
help the Jews conquer the Land of Israel. And even worse,
the sin of intermarriage will cause the Jews to be driven out
from the Land of Israel. Intermarriage may be the real reason
why more than 300,000 Israelis live outside Israel, right now.
