Jewish and Christian leaders, as well as several pro-Israel U.S. Lawmakers say it’s way past time to put our embassy where it belongs. “Jerusalem is the rightful capital of the Jewish people, and it should stay that way,” Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., said. “It should always be unified under one simple flag, that star of David, because that is David’s city.”
Jerusalem’s ties to the Jewish people date back at least 3,000 years, to King David’s reign.The city is mentioned 600 times in the Bible’s Old Testament and another 160 times in the New Testament. It is NEVER mentioned in the Koran.
