JERUSALEM – CAPITAL OF ISRAEL

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel since 1950. It has been the focus of Judaism since King David made it the capital of his kingdom in 1003 BC.

Around 40 years later King Solomon built the Temple. He also transformed the city to one of the most prosperous cities in the Mediterranean region.

The Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem in 586 BC and the Temple was then destroyed. Fifty years later Persian King Cyrus I allowed the Jews to return to their homeland. They were granted autonomy. The Second Temple was erected and the city including its walls were rebuilt.

The Second Temple was destroyed in 70 AD.

This history must be remembered in the wake of possible new talks between the State of Israel and the Palestinian authority.

Israel has historic rights to Jerusalem and the city must forever be the Capital of Israel.
