(Worthy News)-- Jerusalem historically has been the only capital of the Jewish people, and so it will remain, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared Sunday at the government's official Jerusalem Day ceremony at Ammunition Hill, the Jerusalem Post reported.
"We need to tell the truth, without fear," Netanyahu said. "This is where we began our path as a nation, this is our home and this is where we will stay."
In comments that left no doubt as to whether he would agree to share the capital with a Palestinian state, Netanyahu said Israel will ensure that the city remains open and tolerant. --[wp_colorbox_media url=" " type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
