Jerusalem's 49th anniversary of liberation from Islamofascists

Today, Israel celebrated 49 years since freeing Jerusalem from the grip of Islamic tyranny over in Jordan, and reunified it as the Israeli capital it is:
Jerusalem is celebrating 49 years since its reunification under Israeli sovereignty with a number of ceremonies and events going into Sunday evening.

The official state ceremony for Jerusalem Day will take place at the Ammunition Hill memorial site. Six torches will be lit in memory of those killed in the battle for Jerusalem. Those lighting the torches will be representatives of bereaved families and of the brigades that fought in the battle. Speakers at the ceremony will include Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat.

Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev said of Jerusalem Day: "Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, is marking 49 years since its reunification. This is the day that we commemorate those who fell in battle to liberate it and give thanks to the heroes who reunited the city.

"We have kept guard along your walls, City of David, and we are still keeping guard. The war for your security is not yet over. We will continue to defend and safeguard you. You will always be our Jerusalem of gold."
There's also a point to be made that Jerusalem doesn't appear in the Koran:
In contrast to the widespread misconception, Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Quran -- not by the name al-Quds, and not by al-Maqdis, as the city is most commonly referred to in Arab literature. This is most surprising, in light of the fact that dozens of passages from the Quran are predicated on stories from the Hebrew Bible and rabbinic literature, where Jerusalem is mentioned countless times. Relatively later on, some Islamic scholars noted that ''Al-Aqsa" ("the farthest") mosque -- from where the Quran says the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven -- was located in Jerusalem. [...]

For 1,300 years of Muslim rule in this region, not once was Jerusalem the capital of a caliphate. The Fatimid and Ottoman rulers even chose Ramla as their local capital. In 1845, on the eve of Zionism, only 15,000 people lived in Jerusalem, about half of them Jewish. From 1949 until the Six-Day War in 1967, the Jordanian sovereigns neither made it their capital there nor nurtured it. The Western Wall plaza area, where according to several Islamic scholars Muhammad tethered his mythological horse, Buraq, was in a state of disrepair, used as a garbage dump rather than a holy site for Muslim pilgrims from across the globe.
The only reason why the city is of any importance to Islam is because they're not the ones running it. Why, that's also the reason why some leftists/socialists want it to be forced under sharia again. And that's why we have to remain vigilant and not allow them to have their way.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent.
