Let’s clear the table and tell the "narrative" as it really is: Jerusalem was chosen as the Jewish people's national and religious center before the dawn of organized religion. Other religions followed suit and declared it their own holy city – with catastrophic results during various periods of history.
Jacques Gauthier, a non-Jewish Canadian lawyer who spent 20 years researching the issue, has concluded: "Jerusalem belongs to the Jews, by international law."

A modern-day record for the number of Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount was set this week on Jerusalem Day – 2,046 Jews! Among them were many who sang and danced, "May G-d rebuild His House soon!" a healthy expression of the Jewish People singing its joy at returning to its land and city.
President Trump has not yet given his "permission" to build the Third Temple, but he seems to have gone a fair ways towards taking his place in Jewish history.
The Greek Orthodox Church found another way to circumvent its own rules against selling the land. In 2011, it sold the future leasing rights on most of its Jerusalem holdings to a private group of Jewish investors. It is the uncertainty of the future that creates unease
The monster called "American and European pressure" showed up – and shot down the Givat HaMatos building project, once again. Why is the large Givat HaMatos housing project so significant and important?
Witnessing the rebuilding and building of Jerusalem in our days.
What better time than now to make a proud, pro-Israel and anti-terrorism decision to move the Embassy to Jerusalem?
Dear Mr. President, Please do NOTHING...
The objective of the Greater Jerusalem Law was to bolster the weakening demographic status of Israel's capital city and to "restore Jerusalem as the symbol and heart of the Jewish nation."
The contrast with the increasing manifestations of international anti-Semitism is stark, and raises the question: What is the source of this incredible and effusive love for Israel from so many different stripes of people?
School is back in session and with it is a new initiative to fight anti-Israel lessons in textbooks used by Palestinian schoolchildren
Arabs claim Silwan as a historically Palestinian Arab neighborhood, yet it was practically empty when the first Yemenite Jews arrived in the 1880s; the Turks and British themselves recognized it as a Jewish neighborhood.
With no one there to stop them, or to intimidate the Israeli police into stopping them, visiting Jews were able – within reason – to offer up prayers this week on the Temple Mount for the first time in many centuries.
As Minister Bennett explained, "The bill is a way to prevent a future situation in which a temporary majority such as existed under Olmert or Barak would bring about the division of Jerusalem, the heart of the Jewish Nation." Is this threat not reason enough to support the bill?
Recollections and reminiscences of Rav Benny Elon, (ZT"l)
We, today's Jewish people, in two weeks, will be privileged to share in an historic milestone: The 50th anniversary of the liberation and reunification of Yerushalayim under Israeli sovereignty.

Assuming Trump will not be intimidated and indeed move the embassy to Yerushalayim, will the presence of the U.S. embassy in Yerushalayim ensure the city's future as Jewish and Israeli?
It is not an Arab housing crisis that is prompting this spree of illegal Palestinian construction. Rather, the goal is political: to show the world that Jerusalem is an Arab, and not a Jewish, city.
Though no one can be sure how a President Trump will react to any given situation, "it is generally understood that whatever we don't do in the coming two months might not be able to be done later."
