“Jerusalem is, and always will be, our undivided and eternal capital,” stated Danon during the special anniversary event at the UN.
Israel held a special event at the United Nations (UN) on Monday celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem’s liberation and reunification during the 1967 Six-Day War.
Ambassadors and diplomats from around the world joined hundreds of participants from the pro-Israel community for the special performance by Israeli diva Sarit Hadad.
“Tonight, we say loud and clear here in the UN, that Jerusalem is the heart and soul of the Jewish people,” said Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, who hosted the event. “Jerusalem is, and always will be, our undivided and eternal capital,” he declared.
“I am so proud to celebrate Jerusalem and perform at this exciting event in the UN. This is a special performance that sent an important message as we presented the real beauty of Israel to the international community,” Hadad said about the event.
Before the performance, Yehuda Kaploun, an entrepreneur active in promoting Israeli technologies, noted how Israeli innovations have been a Jerusalem export for thousands of years.
“Israeli technologies such as Water-Gen have been making the world a better place since the days when King Solomon created an aquatic system for fresh drinking water, which still exists today in Jerusalem,” Kaploun pointed out.
In another recent show of support for Jerusalem’s status as Israel’s eternal capital, the Knesset and the US Congress held a joint event marking the special anniversary.
“After thousands of years in exile, the Jewish people are finally back home. Home in the land of their ancestors. Home in the land that so many have died to defend. And home in their city of Jerusalem, the eternal capital never to be divided again,” said Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis).
The event took place days after the Senate unanimously voted on a resolution honoring the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem’s reunification in strong support of Israel’s sovereignty in its capital.
