Dear Government Leader,
For more than three decades since 1967, Jerusalem has been the united capital of the State of Israel. During this time, the Israeli government has acted as guardian of its holy sites – respecting the rights of all religious groups and guaranteeing access for all – Christians, Jews and Muslims. Israel’s record in this regard speaks for itself.
This stands in sharp contrast to the situation that was created in 1948, at the time of Israel’s founding, when Jerusalem was forcibly divided as a result of the invasion of Arab armies. From 1948-1967, Jews could not pray at the Western Wall and Israeli Arabs, both Christian and Muslim were denied access to their holy sites. Religious persecution led to desecration and destruction. This must never be allowed to recur!
Israel has upheld its moral and ethical obligations to the people of the world and has earned the right to retain sovereignty over all of Jerusalem, according to the present boundaries. Moreover, Israel’s decision, as a free and democratic nation, to designate a united and undivided Jerusalem as its capital, should be respected and recognized by the entire international community.
Sincerely, A Very Concerned Friend of Jerusalem
