Internationalization of Jerusalem?
The following are translated excerpts from Moshe Feiglin’s Facebook Live session on Saturday night, 16 Adar/March 3, ’18.
Netanyahu opposed the transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem, and he did all that he could to prevent it from happening. Despite Netanyahu, it looks like Trump will be moving the embassy, nevertheless. Why is Netanyahu opposed? The grand message of Jerusalem is many sizes too big for Zionism. Ben Gurion did not want the Old City of Jerusalem in 1948. In 1967, Israel liberated Jerusalem against its will and Defense Minister Dayan rushed to return the keys to the Temple Mount to the Moslem wakf. Just last summer, Netanyahu removed the metal detectors from the Temple Mount so that the Arabs would continue to throng to the Temple Mount – in short, Zionism does not want the Old City of Jerusalem. Trump understands that and now we are beginning to hear hints of his Peace Plan. What does his plan include? The internationalization of Jerusalem. Do you understand? We get the embassy and we lose Jerusalem, G-d forbid. That is the danger.
