Jews go way back with Jerusalem

יונינה Yonina
נכנסים לשבת עם ירושלים של זהב, שבת שלום!
Entering Shabbat with Jerusalem on our mind. Shabbat Shalom with Yerushalim Shel Zahav (Jerusalem of Gold)

Did you know that Jewish people, the nation of Israel are indigenous to the land and capital that they finally call home again. Please open your mind to the history, and not just modern history. Of course it is modern times, and we can only go forward, not backward. Israel, Jerusalem, and the Jewish people exist and are here to stay. The only democratic partner with the western world, all holy sites and religions protected and able to thrive. Jerusalem is in our songs, in our Torah, and in our hearts.

Please do your own research, over 3000 years of empires, cultures, and religions deciding the fate of the Jews, finally back in our indigenous home, here are a few facts:

While antisemitism has increased in the wake of the Arab-Israeli conflict, there were pogroms against Jews prior to the foundation of Israel, including Nazi-inspired pogroms in Algeria in the 1930s, and attacks on the Jews of Iraq and Libya in the 1940s. In 1941, 180 Jews were murdered and 700 were injured in the anti-Jewish riots known as the Farhud. Four hundred Jews were injured in violent demonstrations in Egypt in 1945 and Jewish property was vandalized and looted. In Libya, 130 Jews were killed and 266 injured. In December 1947, 13 Jews were killed in Damascus, including 8 children, and 26 were injured. In Aleppo, rioting resulted in dozens of Jewish casualties, damage to 150 Jewish homes, and the torching of 5 schools and 10 synagogues. In Yemen, 97 Jews were murdered and 120 injured.

The UN has been adversarial to Israel for 20 years. Great job by Nikki Haley. It’s good to see the US working with Palestine and Israel. This is leadership. via @chrisenloe @theblaze
