One year anniversary of US Embassy in Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, attended an event this evening, at the David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem marking the one year anniversary of the US Embassy moving to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel.
Also in attendance were US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and his wife Tammy, as well as Guatemalan First Lady Patricia Morales and Guatemalan Ambassador to Israel Mario Bucaro.
“There is a new efflorescence, a new renaissance of relations between us and many of our Arab neighbors, and many non-Arab Muslim countries. We are united in our desire to stop Iranian aggression. Israel and all the countries of the region and all the countries who seek peace in the world should stand together with the United States against Iranian aggression. We have to keep on strengthening the State of Israel and keep on strengthening the indispensable alliance with America,” PM Netanyahu said.
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said that, since “we combined resources in Jerusalem and merged the consulate with the embassy, I would say that the United States diplomatic mission in Jerusalem now speaks with one voice… the voice of one person, the voice of my boss, the voice of President Donald Trump. And we are able to project clarity, purpose and strength like never before.”
“The move of the embassy was the validation by the strongest nation in the world – not just strong militarily and economically, but strong morally, strong ethically… that [it] recognized the unbreakable, historical and truthful connection between the Jewish people and the city of Jerusalem. That is not symbolic,” Ambassador Fridman added.
