Jerusalem: Full Sovereignty –
Especially on the Temple Mount
The precondition for victory is the belief in the justice of one’s cause.
In Oslo, when Israel recognized the existence of a nation without a history and its right to its heartland, we lost our most important weapon: our belief in the justice of our cause. When Hamas talks in the name of justice and Israel talks only in the name of pragmatism and the right to self-defense, the latest state-of-the-art weapons will not help. The side that does not believe that it is just cannot win. Victory has become a dirty word in the army lexicon.
We cannot convince the world that we believe that this is our Land if we do not restore our complete sovereignty over Jerusalem and the Temple Mount – the holiest site in Judaism – that has been out of our control for years.
When we return to ourselves and to our justice, we will be able to triumph over any enemy.
