    They want to give away the Old City of Jerusalem! Precisely this (mistake already recorded in the Tenach) was repeated after the Sinai War (1956). Israel, in trepidation of Egypt, felt they must submit to Egypt?s demands. Israel forces retreated in return for assurances of peace and rights to access freely through the Suez Canal. President Nasser of Egypt violated this promise. (For peace - Israel?s reason for retreat), Egypt prepared for war! Once again, shortly before the outbreak of the Six Day War, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran preparing their military for war. Many argued Israel should not initiate war but find a peaceful solution. With G-d?s mercy, Israel opened the attack disregarding world opinion. The entire world saw the miraculous victory. After the Six Day War the view not to retreat from the territories took precedence. Fact: Whenever Israel took the initiative when faced with war, the number of dead was minimal. On the other hand, in Jerusalem where it was decided NOT to attack, the number killed was much greater. Yet now, regardless of having seen the victory of the Six Day War through no fear and subservience to the Arabs, for three years now Israel is begging the Arabs to take back the conquered territories! President Nasser was convinced that Israel is setting a trap never thinking that Israel would return conquered natural security borders. But after years of entreaties he began to understand that Israel really does want them to take back the territories. I must expose the truth: They have decided to give away the Old City of Jerusalem! In order to sweeten the pill they have presented the recommendation to the President of Egypt that Jerusalem will belong to the Christians, Muslims, and Jews. Even according to those that consider that this is the way to make peace, this textual order is unfathomable ? Christians, Muslims and Jews?. Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish People not only from a halachic perspective. History documents without contradiction, that King David established Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. One thousand years later saw the arrival of Christians and Arabs. Why in the text of compromise did they end with the word Jews? Where is the limit to the abasement of Jewish pride? And this is not final. They want to relinquish Hebron! A shame and disgrace that in Israel there should be a law to which all government ministers put their signature clearly implying that Jewish People have no right to dwell in Hebron and by the Cave of Machpela. This law was joyfully handed to the City head of Hebron whose family members murdered Jews in Hebron in the riots of 1929. Have they murdered and gained the right to inherit? (Spoken at a public gathering 1970). For full talk www.savethelandofisrael.blogspot.com
