Happy Jerusalem Day!

The Jerusalem Post reports:
The climax of Israel's 58-year history was when Israeli soldiers declared 'the Temple Mount is in our hands,' at the end of the 1967 Six Day War, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Thursday, as Israel marked Jerusalem Day and the reunification of the city 39 years ago.

The premier said that the historic moment was unparalleled in both the past and future annals of Israeli and Jewish history.

[...]

Although the prime minister said that Jerusalem was never more "Jewish whole and united" than it is today, city statistics indicate that the Jewish population of the city, as a percentage of the total number of city residents continues to fall, with parity between the number of Jewish and Arab residents in the city forecast in two decades, barring expected city border changes.

Olmert had stated that he is willing to cede outlying Arab neighborhoods in the city to the Palestinians as part of a final peace treaty.


Full story
Happy Jerusalem Day, indeed. :(

I had the pleasure of being in Jerusalem for yom Yerushalayim last year. It was incredible, there was a big concert at the kotel and a parade the whole day long. I hadn't realized it was Yom Yerushalayim until I arrived from Tel Aviv, I was just going to hang out, toute seule, after my friend had just went back to the states, it was quite a welcome back to my favorite city. Happy Jerusalem Day.

Sans ami a Jerusalem? C'est une chose louable (commendable), parce-que Jerusalem est la ville du Dieu.

On n'a pas besoin d'amener une ami a Jerusalem parce-que quand on arrive la, il y a deja beaucoup d'amis la que vouz n'avez jamai rencontres mais connaissez existe.

Est-que j'ai vrai?
