Assessment: “There is no place for an American consulate that serves the Palestinians in Jerusalem ..

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, formerly political opponents, closed ranks to oppose the Biden administration’s plan to open a consulate to the Palestinian Authority in Jerusalem.

Speaking at a media event on Saturday night after the approval of the state budget for 2021-2022, Bennett was unequivocal in his opposition to the plan.

I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the Valley of Yehoshafat. There I will contend with them Over My very own people, Yisrael, Which they scattered among the nations. For they divided My land among themselves Joel 4:2 (The Israel BibleTM)

“There is no place for an American consulate that serves the Palestinians in Jerusalem,” Bennett said, noting that Lapid was in agreement. “We are expressing our position consistently, quietly and without drama, and I hope it is understood. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel alone.”

“If the Americans want to open a consulate in Ramallah we have no problem with that,” Lapid added, emphasizing that “sovereignty in Jerusalem belongs to one country — Israel.” Read More @ Israel 365 HERE
