A United Jerusalem And The End To Terrorism


The double bombing in Jerusalem last week and subsequent search for the suspects in Eastern Jerusalem brings up the need to continue to return Jewish life to all parts of Jerusalem. This includes those neighborhoods where Arabs came in the 1920s, 1930s and ultimately between the years of 1948 and 1967.

It is impossible to restore security to Israel’s capital when multiple neighborhoods are allowed to remain off limits or be very dangerous to Jewish residents.

From Kfar Shiloach, which had a Jewish majority since the 1880s to the Old Jewish Quarter in the Old City, Jews are moving back. Where they move back to brings security. This continued flow needs to be supported wholeheartedly by the government, not only because of the historic justice rooted in it, but because the more Jews in all parts of the city brings security to the entire city.
