Happy Reunified Jerusalem Day

Today (28 of Iyar), as you know is Jerusalem Day (44). The day, that after much blood and battle, we managed to reclaim and reunite the City of Jerusalem after 19 years of Jordanian rule during which Jews were expelled from Arab-occupied Jerusalem, and Jewish religious sites were desecrated and destroyed.

It has been 44 years since we liberated the occupied half of Jerusalem and turned Jerusalem into a city with freedom of worship for all.

Happy Jerusalem Day.

Dare you to walk through one of the "liberated" neighborhoods this afternoon wearing an Israeli flag and yelling this blog post through a megaphone. Without an army escort.

What's the big deal?

As per the request of the police, the march this year starts in the Shimon Hatzadik neighborhood and walks through the liberated areas, ultimately going through Damascus gate to the Kotel.

But what is your point?

That the Arabs attacked Jews and desecrated our Jerusalem holy places in the past, and they would happily do it again if we Jews aren't prepared to protect ourselves?

Sounds like you are saying the Arabs are the problem.

Anonymous: Why yelling it through a megaphone? I go through all neighborhoods in Jerusalem...without an army escort.

Do you long for the days when the tombstones of the mount of Olives were used to pave roads and bathrooms?

Israel's radical Left, in their opposition to the Maale Zeitim neighborhood, wants exactly that outcome.

They're opposed to Jews living within a stone's throw of the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world, the Mount Of Olives.

Jewish anti-Semites don't want a united Jerusalem. Need more be said?

Sarah Palin in New York today wore a very noticeable star of David pendant; when asked about it, she said "Today is the 44th anniversary of Jerusalem being reunited. We want to call attention to that."

(No question about where she stands.)
