Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon addressed the Security Council on the Jewish People’s rights to the Land of Israel, reading from the bible and recounting 2,000 years of history to make his case.
On April 29, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon, in an address to the UN Security Council, read from the bible and discussed 2,000 years of Jewish history to prove that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish People.
For example, Danon referred to the area of Judea (part of the socalled West Bank), reminding the audience that it was named for the largest of the 12 biblical tribes of Israel – Judah – and that the word “Jew” is derived from “Judah.”
In the year 70 CE, Danon noted, the Romans captured Jerusalem, destroyed the Holy Temple and renamed the area Syria-Palaestina in an effort to erase Jewish history. He then went on to discuss Israel’s legal rights based on modern history.
The speech was a hit and was translated into Spanish, Polish, French, Portuguese and Turkish, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Last week, on Israel’s Independence Day, Danon discussed the speech and reiterated the Jewish state’s historical and moral claims to the country, the Post said.
Of course, the Palestinians denounced the speech as they continue to spew their lies. But we know the truth!
