Netanyahu: “All Israeli Governments Have Built in Jerusalem”


netanyahu1Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu on Wednesday reiterated Israel’s right to build in the eastern neighborhoods of Yerushalayim, notwithstanding global outcries. Speaking to ambassadors of Asian countries on the balcony of Jerusalem’s King David Hotel, overlooking the walls of the Old City, Netanyahu said: “The walls of Jerusalem that you see behind us represent the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years.”

“Imagine that you would limit construction in your own capital. It doesn’t make sense…we are committed to our capital; we’re committed to peace; and we’re going to build in Jerusalem for all its residents. This is something that has been done by all previous governments.”
