  • ALLY, THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUR FRIENDS. IT'S OUR DUTY TO DEFEND
  • 00:00:22.100 --> 00:00:26.040

  • EVENING WITH THE WORD TRADITION. I'M YOUR EMCEE AND I BEGAN
  • 00:00:57.080 --> 00:01:00.150
  • THINKING ABOUT WHAT MESSAGE WE REALLY WANTED TO SEND.
  • 00:01:00.160 --> 00:01:03.090
  • TRADITION, OF COURSE, IS THAT FAMOUS SONG FROM FIDDLER ON THE
  • 00:01:03.100 --> 00:01:07.250
  • ROOF', WHICH, IF YOU DON'T KNOW, AND I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU
  • 00:01:07.260 --> 00:01:09.250
  • COULDN'T KNOW IF YOU'RE JEWISH, THE STORY OF ISOLATED AND

  • EMBATTLED, BUT ULTIMATELY VERY RESILIENT RUSSIAN JEWS IN THE
  • 00:01:13.170 --> 00:01:17.240
  • EARLY 1900'S. JEWISH TRADITION TEACHES US, AS YOU ALL KNOW,
  • 00:01:17.250 --> 00:01:22.260
  • THAT MANY THINGS ARE IMPORTANT, HOWEVER, ONE IS EXTREMELY,
  • 00:01:22.270 --> 00:01:28.170
  • EXTREMELY SOLID AND RISES ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE WHEN IT COMES TO
  • 00:01:28.180 --> 00:01:31.270
  • ISRAEL, AND THAT IS THE NUMBER 10. TEN MEASURES OF BEAUTY WERE
  • 00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:38.080
  • BESTOWED UPON THE WORLD. NINE OF THEM WERE AWARDED TO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:45.010

  • OFFICES ALL AROUND THE WORLD. AND HERE'S WHAT'S CRUCIAL ABOUT
  • 00:03:21.240 --> 00:03:24.220
  • HIM. HE SERVED ON THE VERY LEGAL TEAM THAT DEFENDED ISRAEL'S
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:29.070
  • POSITION AT THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT. WE NEED FIGHTERS
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:33.260
  • LIKE HIM. PLEASE JOIN ME IN WELCOMING ISRAEL'S MOST
  • 00:03:33.270 --> 00:03:38.180
  • PASSIONATE OF SUPPORTERS, JORDAN SEKULOW: JORAN SEKULOW:
  • 00:03:38.190 --> 00:03:42.130
  • AMBASSADOR DANON, DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, LADIES, GENTLEMEN, AND
  • 00:03:42.140 --> 00:03:48.000
  • FRIENDS, IT REALLY IS AN HONOR TO STAND HERE AT THE UNITED
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:52.130
  • NATIONS, OF ALL PLACES, CELEBRATING AND NOT CONDEMNING
  • 00:03:52.140 --> 00:03:57.190
  • THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REUNIFICATION OF JERUSALEM,
  • 00:03:57.200 --> 00:04:04.240
  • BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENS HERE, ALMOST ON A DAILY BASIS,
  • 00:04:04.250 --> 00:04:08.260
  • AT THE UNITED NATIONS. SO IT IS HISTORIC FOR US TO ALL BE HERE
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:12.160
  • TONIGHT CELEBRATING A REUNIFIED JERUSALEM AND THE CAPTIAL OF
  • 00:04:12.170 --> 00:04:20.250
  • ISRAEL. YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING, THAT 50 YEARS IS A
  • 00:04:20.260 --> 00:04:23.260
  • VERY SPECIAL NUMBER IN THE JEWISH TRADITION. THE RABBIS
  • 00:04:23.270 --> 00:04:27.280
  • NOTED IN THE ANCIENT BIBLICAL TEXT, A PERIOD OF 50 YEARS IS
  • 00:04:27.290 --> 00:04:31.120
  • SOMETIMES REFERRED TO BY THE WORD [L'OLAM] IT ALSO MEANS
  • 00:04:31.130 --> 00:04:35.250
  • FOREVER. IN THE TALMUD, RABBI AKIVA SAYS THAT THE WORD
  • 00:04:35.260 --> 00:04:41.000
  • [NETSACH], WHICH MEANS ETERNITY OR VICTORY, REFERS TO THE CITY
  • 00:04:41.010 --> 00:04:46.030
  • OF JERUSALEM ITSELF. IN THIS CASE I THINK IT'S VERY CLEAR
  • 00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:50.030
  • THAT WHILE WE ARE CELEBRATING THE NETSACH, THE VICTORY OF THE
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:53.270
  • 1ST 50 YEARS OF HAVING JERUSALEM REUNITED, WE ARE ALSO
  • 00:04:53.280 --> 00:04:58.240
  • CELEBRATING THE NETSACH, THE ETERNITY OF HAVING JERUSALEM
  • 00:04:58.250 --> 00:05:03.060
  • REUNITED FOREVER UNDER THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL. BUT 50
  • 00:05:03.070 --> 00:05:09.230
  • YEARS IS A LONG TIME AND FOR SOME PEOPLE, MANY AT THE UNITED
  • 00:05:09.240 --> 00:05:13.170
  • NATIONS AND AROUND THE GLOBE, IT'S BEEN LONG ENOUGH FOR THEM
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:16.260
  • TO FORGET THE MIRACLES THAT THE WHOLE WORLD WITNESSED, THE
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:19.240
  • BIBLICAL REENACTMENT ON AN INTERNATIONAL STAGE OF DAVID AND
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:24.020
  • GOLIATH. BUT WE, WE DON'T FORGET. WE REMAIN THANKFUL FOR
  • 00:05:24.030 --> 00:05:29.170
  • HAVING SEEN THE FULFILLMENT OF BIBLICAL PROPHECIES, THE RETURN
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:33.160
  • OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE HOME, AND THE REBUILDING OF JERUSALEM. BUT
  • 00:05:33.170 --> 00:05:38.030
  • FOR OTHERS IT'S JUST BEEN LONG ENOUGH FOR THEM TO FORGET THE
  • 00:05:38.040 --> 00:05:41.090
  • LEGALITY OF ISRAEL, AND EVEN MORESO, THE LEGALITY OF
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:48.070
  • JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL. AS LIZ SAID, AND AS AN
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:53.290
  • ATTORNEY, IT'S QUITE SIMPLE, YOU CAN'T START A FIGHT WITH SOMEONE
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:59.160
  • AND THEN CRY FOUL WHEN THEY HIT BACK. IT'S A PRINCIPLE THAT THE
  • 00:05:59.170 --> 00:06:04.070
  • U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL HAS NO PROBLEM WITH EXCEPT IN ISRAEL'S
  • 00:06:04.080 --> 00:06:08.110
  • CASE. IN JUNE OF 1967, I KNOW AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, ISRAEL WAS
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:14.040
  • LITERALLY SURROUNDED. AND I THINK IT'S ALWAYS IMPORTANT THAT
  • 00:06:14.050 --> 00:06:17.260
  • WE MAKE THE CASE, SO PEOPLE UNDERSTAND WHY JERUSALEM IS THIS
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:21.120
  • ETERNAL CAPITAL IN MODERN TIMES, NOT JUST HISTORICALLY BUT IN
  • 00:06:21.130 --> 00:06:25.050
  • MODERN TIMES. ISRAEL IS SURROUNDED WITH ENEMY TROOPS AND
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:31.040
  • COUNTRIES THAT WERE OPENLY, PUBLICALLY PROCLAIMING THEIR
  • 00:06:31.050 --> 00:06:35.190
  • WILL TO DESTROY HER, TO KILL HER CITIZENS, AND TOO OFTEN AS WE
  • 00:06:35.200 --> 00:06:41.030
  • HEAR TODAY ABOUT ISRAEL, TO WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE MAP AND OFF THE
  • 00:06:41.040 --> 00:06:46.120
  • FACE OF HISTORY. THERE WERE ALMOST DAILY PROCLAMATIONS.
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:51.200
  • UNFORTUNATELY, THERE ARE TOO MANY OF THOSE TODAY AS WELL. BUT
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:56.030
  • THERE WAS ONE DIFFERENCE. SEE, AFTER EGYPT CLOSED THE STRAITS
  • 00:06:56.040 --> 00:07:00.020
  • OF TIRAN IN AN OPEN ACT OF WAR, ISRAEL DID WHAT SHE HAD NO OTHER
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:05.190
  • CHOICE TO DO; SHE HIT BACK. SHE ENGAGED IN A DEFENSIVE BATTLE,
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:10.170
  • SOMETHING LOST ON MOST OF THE MEMBERS OF THE U.N. WHO CONDEMN
  • 00:07:10.180 --> 00:07:15.220
  • ISRAEL, DURING WHICH, DURING THIS DEFENSIVE BATTLE, ISRAEL
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:22.090
  • REGAINED TERRITORY THAT WAS RIGHTFULLY HERS UNDER THE
  • 00:07:22.100 --> 00:07:24.270
  • MANDATE. AND THEN, WHICH IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED IN OUR HISTORY,
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:30.260
  • THINK ABOUT THIS, HAVE YOU HEARD THIS MUCH AT THE UNITED NATIONS,
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:33.260
  • OR EVER BEFORE AT AN OFFICIAL U.N. EVENT? IN AN INCREDIBLE ACT
  • 00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:39.140
  • OF UNPRECEDENTED GRACE, WHICH ISRAEL WAS UNDER NO MANDATE TO
  • 00:07:39.150 --> 00:07:46.190
  • DO AFTER THIS DEFENSIVE BATTLE, ISRAEL GAVE BACK MOST OF THE
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:51.220
  • LAND IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE PEACE WITH HER ENEMIES. WHY WAS THAT?
  • 00:07:51.230 --> 00:07:58.130
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT ISRAEL STANDS FOR. THAT IS WHO THE
  • 00:07:58.140 --> 00:08:02.210
  • ISRAELI PEOPLE ARE, AND THAT IS WHY WE ALL MUST DO OUR PART TO
  • 00:08:02.220 --> 00:08:08.230
  • STAND FOR ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM AS THE REUNITED CAPITAL OF
  • 00:08:08.240 --> 00:08:14.250
  • ISRAEL. BUT THE PROBLEM, AND WE FACE THAT EVERY DAY HERE AT THE
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:19.230
  • UNITED NATIONS, AND SO DOES AMBASSADOR DANON, CERTAINLY, IS
  • 00:08:19.240 --> 00:08:24.030
  • THAT AS SOON AS THE BATTLE ENDED ON THE FIELD, WHEN ISRAEL'S
  • 00:08:24.040 --> 00:08:28.100
  • ENEMY SAW THEY COULD NOT PHYSICALLY OVERPOWER HER, THEY
  • 00:08:28.110 --> 00:08:31.150
  • MAY TRY AGAIN, FAILING EVEN IN SURPRISE ATTACKS, THERE WAS A
  • 00:08:31.160 --> 00:08:37.040
  • NEW KIND OF BATTLE STARTED. THIS IS A BATTLE THAT WAGES TODAY.
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:40.240
  • IT'S WHY THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE, WHY WE ARE HERE
  • 00:08:40.250 --> 00:08:43.130
  • AND WHY I AM HERE SPEAKING WITH YOU TODAY, BECAUSE I WANTED TO
  • 00:08:43.140 --> 00:08:49.120
  • REASSURE YOU ABOUT ONE THING WHEN IT COMES TO THESE NEW
  • 00:08:49.130 --> 00:08:51.290
  • BATTLES TO DELEGITIMIZE ISRAEL IN THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA. AND
  • 00:08:52.000 --> 00:08:56.080
  • I THINK I NEED TO BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT IT, IT HASN'T WORKED, IT
  • 00:08:56.090 --> 00:09:01.280
  • WON'T WORK, AND WE CAN NEVER ALLOW IT TO WORK. WE CAN NEVER
  • 00:09:01.290 --> 00:09:07.110
  • ALLOW THE DELEGITIMIZATION OF ISRAEL AT THESE INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:09:07.120 --> 00:09:12.150
  • INSTITUTIONS. AND THAT IS WHAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR-TO PROTECT
  • 00:09:12.160 --> 00:09:16.010
  • ISRAEL AT EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. AND YOU MAY NOT KNOW THIS BUT
  • 00:09:16.020 --> 00:09:20.210
  • AROUND THE WORLD THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE ME, MY ORGANIZATION,
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:24.220
  • LAW FIRM, THAT DEDICATE A LOT OF THEIR TIME TO MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:29.060
  • ISRAEL IS ALWAYS REPRESENTED. AS LIZ MENTIONED, I, ALONG WITH A
  • 00:09:29.070 --> 00:09:33.020
  • TEAM OF OUR LAWYERS FROM THE ACLJ, LED BY MY FATHER, WHO IS
  • 00:09:33.030 --> 00:09:37.280
  • OUR CHIEF COUNSEL, DR. JAY SEKULOW, ACTUALLY DEFENDED
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:41.080
  • ISRAEL'S INTEREST AT THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT IN
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:44.210
  • THE HAGUE WHEN THE HAGUE WAS CONSIDERING JURISDICTION OVER
  • 00:09:44.220 --> 00:09:50.030
  • ISRAELI TROOPS, MANY OF WHICH HAD DUAL CITIZENSHIP IN
  • 00:09:50.040 --> 00:09:53.150
  • COUNTRIES THAT WERE READY TO THROW THEM TO THE INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:56.230
  • CRIMINAL COURT, WHICH PUT THEM IN A VERY DIFFICULT SPOT AS DUAL
  • 00:09:56.240 --> 00:10:00.200
  • CITIZENS WHO DEFENDED THEIR HOMELAND OF ISRAEL, BUT MAY HAVE
  • 00:10:00.210 --> 00:10:04.180
  • HAD FAMILY IN ANOTHER COUNTRY THAT THEY COULD NO LONGER RETURN
  • 00:10:04.190 --> 00:10:08.010
  • TO. ONE OF THOSE INDIVIDUALS, ACTUALLY ON OUR LEGAL STAFF,
  • 00:10:08.020 --> 00:10:11.140
  • CURRENTLY STILL SERVES IN THE RESERVES WITH THE IDF AND WAS
  • 00:10:11.150 --> 00:10:14.220
  • PART OF THAT TEAM AS WELL. SO THIS HAD NOT ONLY THIS ESOTERIC
  • 00:10:14.230 --> 00:10:20.040
  • IMPACT AT THESE INTERNATIONAL COURTS THAT WE SOMETIMES FEEL,
  • 00:10:20.050 --> 00:10:24.050
  • OR EVEN HERE AT THE U.N. WHERE A LOT OF THIS SOUNDS LIKE WORDS
  • 00:10:24.060 --> 00:10:26.240
  • AND NOT ACTIONS, ONE OF OUR OWN LEGAL TEAM MEMBERS WAS FACING
  • 00:10:26.250 --> 00:10:31.070
  • THIS VERY ISSUE. IF HE RETURNED HOME, HE COULD BE ARRESTED AND
  • 00:10:31.080 --> 00:10:34.150
  • POTENTIALLY SENT TO THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT AND
  • 00:10:34.160 --> 00:10:38.000
  • TREATED AS A WAR CRIMINAL. UNDERSTAND THAT-AS A WAR
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:42.120
  • CRIMINAL AT AN INTERNATIONAL BODY. SO, LITERALLY, TONIGHT
  • 00:10:42.130 --> 00:10:48.000
  • WHAT WE'VE DECIDED TO DO AT THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:50.210
  • JUSTICE, WE ACTUALLY HAVE A TEAM FLYING TO THE HAGUE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:10:50.220 --> 00:10:54.130
  • WE HAVE OFFICES ALL OVER THE WORLD, IN EUROPE, IN ISRAEL, IN
  • 00:10:54.140 --> 00:10:57.050
  • JERUSALEM, AND THIS IS ON A CONFERENCE TO COMBAT THIS AT THE
  • 00:10:57.060 --> 00:11:01.170
  • EUROPEAN LEVEL; THE LEGAL BATTLE, IF YOU WILL, TO DEFINE,
  • 00:11:01.180 --> 00:11:08.110
  • NOT JUST ISRAEL AND ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO EXIST, BUT JERUSALEM AS
  • 00:11:08.120 --> 00:11:13.240
  • ISRAEL'S CAPITAL. YOU KNOW, EVERY SINGLE DAY WE DEFEND
  • 00:11:13.250 --> 00:11:18.130
  • STUDENTS RIGHT HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. THIS IS NOT JUST
  • 00:11:18.140 --> 00:11:22.010
  • IN EUROPE; THIS IS RIGHT HERE AT HOME FOR MANY OF US. EVERY DAY
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:27.050
  • WE DEFEND THESE STUDENTS, PROFESSORS, OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN
  • 00:11:27.060 --> 00:11:30.100
  • VILIFIED, SOMETIMES THEIR JOBS THREATENED FOR STANDING UP FOR
  • 00:11:30.110 --> 00:11:34.060
  • ISRAEL. RIGHT NOW, AS I SPEAK, WE'RE IN FEDERAL COURT DEFENDING
  • 00:11:34.070 --> 00:11:39.050
  • ISRAELI INSTITUTIONS AGAINST TERRORISTS. NOW WHEN I SAY
  • 00:11:39.060 --> 00:11:43.260
  • FEDERAL COURT, I MEAN U.S. FEDERAL COURT. IT'S HAPPENING
  • 00:11:43.270 --> 00:11:46.170
  • RIGHT HERE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. NOT JUST HERE INSIDE
  • 00:11:46.180 --> 00:11:50.210
  • THE UNITED NATIONS, BUT WE'RE WORKING ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY
  • 00:11:50.220 --> 00:11:55.070
  • EVEN AT THE STATE LEVEL, AND YOU'VE SEEN THIS WORK BEFORE, TO
  • 00:11:55.080 --> 00:11:58.060
  • DRAFT BILLS THAT WILL UPHOLD AND ENSHRINE GREATER PROTECTIONS
  • 00:11:58.070 --> 00:12:02.220
  • AGAINST ANTI-SEMITISM IN THE LAW. THIS IS WHAT WE'RE SEEING
  • 00:12:02.230 --> 00:12:06.260
  • ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES. BUT LISTEN, WE'VE HANDLED A LOT OF CASES, WE
  • 00:12:06.270 --> 00:12:10.210
  • WIN BECAUSE WE HAVE TO WIN. YOU CAN'T LOSE THESE CASES. YOU
  • 00:12:10.220 --> 00:12:18.010
  • CANNOT LOSE THESE CASES BECAUSE THAT IS ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:23.020
  • OTHER SIDE'S GOAL TO DELEGITIMIZE ISRAEL AND
  • 00:12:23.030 --> 00:12:26.060
  • ULTIMATELY THEIR TARGET, TO DELEGITIMIZE JERUSALEM AS THE
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:31.240
  • CAPITAL OF THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL. BUT I THINK THAT
  • 00:12:31.250 --> 00:12:37.150
  • EVERYONE IN THIS ROOM TONIGHT KNOWS, AND IN THE OVERFLOW ROOM
  • 00:12:37.160 --> 00:12:40.060
  • AS WELL, WE ALL HAVE A DUTY. I MEAN, YOU WERE INVITED HERE
  • 00:12:40.070 --> 00:12:43.080
  • TONIGHT FOR A REASON, BECAUSE OF YOUR STANCE FOR ISRAEL. AND WHEN
  • 00:12:43.090 --> 00:12:49.020
  • YOU HAVE A DUTY, IT MEANS YOU HAVE TO BE PREPARED TO PROTECT
  • 00:12:49.030 --> 00:12:53.010
  • ISRAEL'S RIGHTS IN YOUR OWN WAY. SO WE ALL NEED YOUR HELP, ALL
  • 00:12:53.020 --> 00:12:57.120
  • THE ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE A PART OF THIS EVENT. YOU KNOW, AS
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:13:00.260
  • LAWYERS, WE'RE JUST MEANT TO BE THE BACKSTOP FOR ALL THESE
  • 00:13:00.270 --> 00:13:04.050
  • ISSUES. WE'RE TO MAKE SURE THAT NO ONE GETS AWAY WITH LIES.
  • 00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:08.270
  • WE'RE THE, AS COURTS ARE, THE PLACE OF LAST RESORT. WE NEED
  • 00:13:08.280 --> 00:13:12.030
  • PEOPLE TO ENGAGE IN WHAT IS MORE A PROACTIVE. WE NEED TO GET OFF
  • 00:13:12.040 --> 00:13:18.060
  • THE DEFENSIVE, BUT A PROACTIVE DEFENSE OF ISRAEL. YOU CAN DO IT
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:22.140
  • ON YOUR CAMPUSES, AROUND THE COUNTRY IN OP-EDS, IN THE NEWS.
  • 00:13:22.150 --> 00:13:26.020
  • WE SEE HOW MUCH, EVEN IN THIS OWN BODY AT THE UNITED NATIONS,
  • 00:13:26.030 --> 00:13:30.170
  • WHERE THERE'S JUST OUTRIGHT LIES. BUT WE ALL EXIST, EVERY
  • 00:13:30.180 --> 00:13:34.230
  • ONE OF US IN THIS ROOM IS AN INFLUENCER, TO AN EXTENT, TO
  • 00:13:34.240 --> 00:13:39.050
  • COMBAT THESE VERY LIES. RIGHT HERE, ACTUALLY, AND IT'S PRETTY
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:46.130
  • BIG, THIS WAS JUST PUT TOGETHER IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS, IS A
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:52.100
  • PETITION MOSTLY OF AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WHO STOOD WITH ISRAEL
  • 00:13:52.110 --> 00:13:57.050
  • AND THEY'VE SIGNED, THIS IS NEARLY 300.000 PEOPLE IN 2
  • 00:13:57.060 --> 00:14:01.290
  • WEEKS, DEFENDING JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL. IF WE CAN
  • 00:14:02.000 --> 00:14:06.100
  • DO THAT IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS, IMAGINE WHAT WE CAN DO IN 6
  • 00:14:06.110 --> 00:14:08.100
  • MONTHS. IMAGINE WHAT WE CAN DO IN A YEAR. IMAGINE WHAT WE CAN
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:11.230
  • DO IF WE STAND TOGETHER. AND LET ME CLOSE WITH SOMETHING THAT I
  • 00:14:11.240 --> 00:14:16.230
  • BELIEVE IS MOST IMPORTANT, WE MUST SHIFT THE NARRATIVE. IT
  • 00:14:16.240 --> 00:14:21.060
  • CANNOT JUST BE ALL OF US ON THE DEFENSIVE ANYMORE. WE, THE
  • 00:14:21.070 --> 00:14:26.140
  • SUPPORTERS OF ISRAEL AND THE SUPPORTERS OF JERUSALEM, MUST BE
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:31.050
  • ON THE OFFENSIVE. BECAUSE WE HAVE TO REMIND PEOPLE, FOR CIVIL
  • 00:14:31.060 --> 00:14:35.150
  • LIBERTIES, FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, FOR TRUE DEMOCRACY,
  • 00:14:35.160 --> 00:14:39.070
  • ISRAEL IS THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THAT REGION OF THE WORLD THAT
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:42.190
  • STANDS UP TO THE VALUES THAT WE HOLD SO DEAR IN THE UNITED
  • 00:14:42.200 --> 00:14:45.150
  • STATES OF AMERICA. AND THE BEST WAY TO COMBAT WITH LIES IS WITH
  • 00:14:45.160 --> 00:14:49.150
  • TRUTH. AND THERE ARE MANY ORGANIZATIONS HERE, AS WELL AS
  • 00:14:49.160 --> 00:14:53.030
  • THE EMBASSY, THE AMBASSADOR, WHO CAN HELP YOU DO THAT. AND MAKE
  • 00:14:53.040 --> 00:14:58.010
  • SURE PEOPLE KNOW THAT BEFORE ISRAEL HAD JERUSALEM, JEWS AND
  • 00:14:58.020 --> 00:15:02.290
  • CHRISTIANS COULDN'T GO THERE. BUT NOW THAT ISRAEL HAS
  • 00:15:03.000 --> 00:15:06.160
  • JERUSALEM, THE HOLY SITES OF EVERY RELIGION ARE NOT ONLY FOR
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:10.100
  • WORSHIP, THEY ARE PROTECTED, THEY ARE GUARDED, THEY ARE SAFE.
  • 00:15:10.110 --> 00:15:14.130
  • YOU KNOW, IN 1948 ISRAEL, ISRAEL AS A NATION, RECEIVED THIS BODY,
  • 00:15:14.140 --> 00:15:23.080
  • BUT IN 1967 WITH JERUSALEM, ISRAEL HAD A HEART. SO I CLOSE
  • 00:15:23.090 --> 00:15:29.110
  • JUST BRIEFLY WITH THIS, THANKING THE AMBASSADOR, THANKING THE
  • 00:15:29.120 --> 00:15:32.070
  • MISSION FOR ISRAEL TO THE UNITED NATIONS, AND ALL OF YOU WHO ARE

  • HIS COUNTRY AND HAS THE, I GUESS WE COULD SAY, UNENVIABLE TASK OF
  • 00:16:00.020 --> 00:16:05.000
  • STANDING UP FOR THE JEWISH STATE IN THIS OFTEN HOSTILE BUILDING.
  • 00:16:05.010 --> 00:16:08.290
  • BEFORE COMING HERE TO THE UNITED NATIONS, AMBASSADOR DANON SERVED
  • 00:16:09.000 --> 00:16:12.120
  • IN ISRAEL'S CABINET AS ISRAEL'S DEPUTY DEFENSE MINISTER, AND
  • 00:16:12.130 --> 00:16:16.150
  • THEN AS A MINISTER OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY. BUT NOW HE
  • 00:16:16.160 --> 00:16:21.030
  • DEFENDS ISRAEL PASSIONATELY AT THE U.N. [APPLAUSE] PLEASE
  • 00:16:21.040 --> 00:16:27.130
  • WELCOME, HIS EXCELLENCY, AMBASSADOR DANNY DANON!

  • ARE VERY EXCITED TO HAVE YOU HERE WITH US TONIGHT. LADIES AND
  • 00:16:40.220 --> 00:16:44.110
  • GENTLEMEN, ESTEEMED GUESTS, TONIGHT WE CELEBRATE THE
  • 00:16:44.120 --> 00:16:49.240
  • RIGHTFUL RETURN OF A SCATTERED JEWISH PEOPLE TO THEIR ETERNAL
  • 00:16:49.250 --> 00:16:54.160
  • CAPITAL. AND TONIGHT WE ACKNOWLEDGE OUR ONGOING STRUGGLE
  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:58.280
  • FOR JUSTICE AND RESPECT. FIFTY YEARS AGO THE STATE OF ISRAEL
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:04.240
  • WITNESSED A MIRACLE-AFTER 6 DAYS OF WAR, THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:10.250
  • AND THE JEWS CAME HOME: THE OLD, THE YOUNG, THE RELIGIOUS, AND
  • 00:17:10.260 --> 00:17:17.280
  • THE SECULAR. THOSE OF THE PAST AND THOSE OF THE FUTURE RETURNED
  • 00:17:17.290 --> 00:17:22.090
  • TO THE HOLIEST SITE OF OUR PEOPLE NEVER TO LOSE IT AGAIN.
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:28.210
  • OUR NATION REJOICED IN OUR VICTORY AND OUR PROUD COMMUNITY
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:33.170
  • RELISHED IN OUR HOMECOMING. TOGETHER THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:38.020
  • REUNITED WITH OUR BELOVED, ETERNAL CAPITAL, JERUSALEM,
  • 00:17:38.030 --> 00:17:44.000
  • [YERUSHALAIM]. HERE ARE THE NUMBERS, FOR 3.000 YEARS, THE
  • 00:17:44.010 --> 00:17:49.220
  • JEWS HAVE YEARNED FOR JERUSALEM. OUR HOLY TEMPLE ENDURED TOTAL
  • 00:17:49.230 --> 00:17:55.050
  • DESTRUCTION TWICE. FOREIGN ARMIES SEIZED OUR CAPITAL 23
  • 00:17:55.060 --> 00:18:01.120
  • TIMES, AND EMPIRES CONQUERED IT 44 TIMES. WE HAVE PRAYED FOR
  • 00:18:01.130 --> 00:18:08.230
  • JERUSALEM, AND TOWARDS JERUSALEM FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. WE FIND
  • 00:18:08.240 --> 00:18:14.080
  • ITS NAME MENTIONED 660 TIMES IN THE [TANAKH] THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:18:14.090 --> 00:18:21.240
  • AND WE CONCLUDE 2 MAJOR JEWISH HOLIDAYS, YOM KIPPUR AND
  • 00:18:21.250 --> 00:18:26.240
  • PASSOVER, WITH THE DECLARATION NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM'.
  • 00:18:26.250 --> 00:18:32.090
  • COUNTLESS MEMORIES, STORIES, DREAMS AND PRAYERS SHARE THE
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:37.090
  • SANCTITY OF JERUSALEM. ITS HOLINESS MARKS A LEGACY WE PASS
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:41.160
  • FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION [L'DOR VA'DOR]. I WOULD LIKE TO
  • 00:18:41.170 --> 00:18:47.150
  • TAKE YOU BACK TO ONE MOMENT IN 1967. ON THE MORNING OF JUNE 7TH
  • 00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:56.250
  • OUR SOLDIERS LIBERATED THE OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM. THEY RUSHED
  • 00:18:56.260 --> 00:19:01.260
  • THROUGH ITS ANCIENT STONE CORRIDORS AND FINALLY FOUND THE
  • 00:19:01.270 --> 00:19:05.270
  • REMNANTS OF THE WESTERN WALL. IT WAS A SPECIAL MOMENT. CRYING THE
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:12.110
  • WORDS OF THE KADDISH, THE MOURNERS PRAYER, OUR SOLDIERS
  • 00:19:12.120 --> 00:19:16.100
  • GRIEVED FOR THEIR FALLEN COMRADES, FOLLOWED BY THE
  • 00:19:16.110 --> 00:19:20.010
  • SINGING OF OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM [HATIKVAH] THE HOPE WITH
  • 00:19:20.020 --> 00:19:24.070
  • INFINITE JOY'. WHILE THERE, WE TOOK THE OLD CITY, LISTENING TO
  • 00:19:24.080 --> 00:19:29.270
  • THE ARMY RADIOS FOR INSTRUCTIONS, OUR SONS HEARD
  • 00:19:29.280 --> 00:19:33.220
  • COMMANDER MOTTA GUR'S HISTORIC DECLARATION [HAR HABAYIT
  • 00:19:33.230 --> 00:19:38.150
  • BEYADEINU] THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS IN OUR HANDS. [APPLAUSE] AS IF,
  • 00:19:38.160 --> 00:19:45.100
  • ON DIVINE CUE, RABBI SHLOMO GOREN, THE CHIEF CHAPLAIN OF THE
  • 00:19:45.110 --> 00:19:51.130
  • IDF, ARRIVED AT THE SCENE, SHOFAR AND TORAH SCROLL IN HAND.
  • 00:19:51.140 --> 00:19:56.250
  • I AM SPEAKING TO YOU FROM THE PLAZA OF THE WESTERN WALL, HE
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:20:01.100
  • ANNOUNCED LIVE TO THE ENTIRE NATION, TO THE ENTIRE WORLD.
  • 00:20:01.110 --> 00:20:06.070
  • WITH THE BLAST OF THE SHOFAR, RABBI GOREN PROCLAIMED AN
  • 00:20:06.080 --> 00:20:10.050
  • AMENDED VERSION OF OUR ANCIENT JEWISH EDICT, THIS YEAR WE'RE
  • 00:20:10.060 --> 00:20:15.210
  • GOING TO REBUILD JERUSALEM. [APPLAUSE] ON THE SHAVUOT
  • 00:20:15.220 --> 00:20:19.070
  • HOLIDAY OF 1967, 200.000 PEOPLE VISITED THE WALL FOR 13 HOURS
  • 00:20:19.080 --> 00:20:26.200
  • STRAIGHT. ONE EYE WITNESS SAID THAT SHE HAD NEVER KNOWN SO
  • 00:20:26.210 --> 00:20:31.010
  • ELECTRIC AN ATMOSPHERE BEFORE OR SINCE. THE CROWD SANG, SWAYED,
  • 00:20:31.020 --> 00:20:36.190
  • AND DANCED WITH TORAH SCROLLS HIGH IN THE AIR. IT WAS SAID
  • 00:20:36.200 --> 00:20:40.290
  • THAT YOU COULD NOT GET A PLANE TICKET TO ISRAEL FOR 6 MONTHS.
  • 00:20:41.000 --> 00:20:45.010
  • MILLIONS OF JEWS CAME TO JERUSALEM TO REJOICE IN THIS
  • 00:20:45.020 --> 00:20:49.060
  • HOMECOMING. SECULAR KIBBUTZ DWELLERS, ULTRA ORTHODOX
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:53.270
  • HAREDIM, MOTHERS, FATHERS, AND CHILDREN, ALL CAME BACK TO TOUCH
  • 00:20:53.280 --> 00:20:58.270
  • THE WALL'S ANCIENT, HOLY STONES. MY MOTHER WAS ONE OF THOSE EARLY
  • 00:20:58.280 --> 00:21:05.060
  • VISITORS TO THE WALL. LIKE OTHERS, SHE SANG AND DANCED, SHE
  • 00:21:05.070 --> 00:21:10.100
  • PRAYED AND CRIED, AND SHE STOOD WITH PRIDE ON THAT HISTORIC DAY
  • 00:21:10.110 --> 00:21:15.050
  • IN 1967. BUT FOR HER, FOR MY MOTHER, THIS RETURN WAS
  • 00:21:15.060 --> 00:21:20.220
  • DIFFERENT. MY MOTHER WAS BORN IN JERUSALEM. A TRUE PALESTINIAN,
  • 00:21:20.230 --> 00:21:26.120
  • IF YOU WILL. SHE HAD SEEN THE OLD CITY BEFORE ISRAEL'S
  • 00:21:26.130 --> 00:21:30.060
  • ESTABLISHMENT IN 1948. SHE REMEMBERS A CITY WHERE JEWS,
  • 00:21:30.070 --> 00:21:34.260
  • MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS LIVED TOGETHER IN PEACE. AND SHE
  • 00:21:34.270 --> 00:21:38.120
  • RECORDS THE LONG 19 YEARS SHE GAZED AT THE OLD CITY FROM AFAR,
  • 00:21:38.130 --> 00:21:43.040
  • YEARNING TO RETURN. IT WAS INDEED A DARK TIME IN HISTORY.
  • 00:21:43.050 --> 00:21:47.270
  • BETWEEN 1948 AND 1967, THE JEWISH NATION HAD A STATE OF OUR
  • 00:21:47.280 --> 00:21:55.000
  • OWN, BUT WITHIN THESE YEARS THE JEWISH PEOPLE COULD NOT PRAY AT
  • 00:21:55.010 --> 00:22:00.120
  • THEIR HOLY WESTERN WALL. IT WAS OCCUPIED BY OTHERS. BACK THEN
  • 00:22:00.130 --> 00:22:05.080
  • OUR JERUSALEM WAS TORN AND DIVIDED. BUT TODAY THOSE DAYS
  • 00:22:05.090 --> 00:22:11.030
  • ARE HISTORY! THOSE DAYS ARE OVER! [APPLAUSE] WE WILL NEVER
  • 00:22:11.040 --> 00:22:17.230
  • AGAIN SPEND ANOTHER MOMENT LONGING TO RETURN TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:22:17.240 --> 00:22:21.290
  • AS MY MOTHER DID. IT HAS BEEN 50 YEARS SINCE THE MIRACLE OF JUNE
  • 00:22:22.000 --> 00:22:27.220
  • 7TH, 1967. JERUSALEM IS NOW A COSMOPOLITAN CENTER OF PAST,
  • 00:22:27.230 --> 00:22:34.200
  • PRESENT, AND FUTURE. IT PERFECTLY FULFILLS THEODOR
  • 00:22:34.210 --> 00:22:38.280
  • HERZI'S DREAM OF [ALTNEULAND] OF AN OLD NEW LAND'. IT IS THE
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:44.070
  • ONLY CAPITAL CITY IN THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST THAT PROTECTS THE
  • 00:22:44.080 --> 00:22:49.170
  • FREEDOM OF RELIGION FOR ALL RELIGIONS, THAT NONE . JORDAN'S
  • 00:22:49.180 --> 00:22:55.110
  • FORMER U.N. AMBASSADOR ADMITTED YEARS LATER THE SITUATION IN
  • 00:22:55.120 --> 00:23:02.190
  • JERUSALEM AND UNDER JORDANIAN RULE WAS ONE OF RELIGIOUS
  • 00:23:02.200 --> 00:23:08.030
  • EXCLUSION. UNDER ISRAEL IT HAS BECOME ONE OF RELIGIOUS
  • 00:23:08.040 --> 00:23:14.070
  • INCLUSION FOR MILLIONS OF JEWS, MUSLIMS, AND CHRISTIANS. YET, IN
  • 00:23:14.080 --> 00:23:23.250
  • THAT REGARD, IT SEEMS THAT THE U.N. COULD NOT CARE LESS ABOUT
  • 00:23:23.260 --> 00:23:26.250
  • PROTECTING ITS CORE VALUES. MANY RELENTLESSLY DENY THE JEWISH
  • 00:23:26.260 --> 00:23:31.080
  • CONNECTION TO JERUSALEM. LAST DECEMBER HERE IN THIS BUILDING,
  • 00:23:31.090 --> 00:23:36.150
  • THE SECURITY COUNCIL HAD THE NERVE, THE CHUTZPAH, TO CALL
  • 00:23:36.160 --> 00:23:41.020
  • ISRAEL'S PRESENCE IN THE OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM, FLAGRANT
  • 00:23:41.030 --> 00:23:46.160
  • VIOLATION UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW. SHORTLY AFTERWARD UNESCO
  • 00:23:46.170 --> 00:23:52.050
  • PASSED A RESOLUTION CALLING ISRAEL THE OCCUPYING POWER IN
  • 00:23:52.060 --> 00:23:57.150
  • JERUSALEM. THEY HAVE CLEARLY NEVER PICKED UP A HISTORY BOOK.
  • 00:23:57.160 --> 00:24:04.040
  • IT'S ABOUT TIME THEY WILL DO IT. [APPLAUSE] LADIES AND GENTELMEN,
  • 00:24:04.050 --> 00:24:10.270
  • TODAY IT IS OUR DUTY TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT JERUSALEM IS OUR
  • 00:24:10.280 --> 00:24:15.150
  • CAPITAL. AND IT IS OUR OBLIGATION TO EXPLAIN WITHOUT
  • 00:24:15.160 --> 00:24:21.190
  • ANY DOUBT, WITHOUT ANY HESITATION THAT JERUSALEM
  • 00:24:21.200 --> 00:24:25.280
  • BELONGS TO ISRAEL. WE WILL NEVER TAKE HER FOR GRANTED. WE WILL
  • 00:24:25.290 --> 00:24:31.250
  • FOLLOW THE WORD OF THE PROPHET ISAIAH, [AL-CHOMOTAY Y'RUSHALAIM
  • 00:24:31.260 --> 00:24:36.090
  • HIF'QAD'TIY SHOM'RIYM KALHAYOM W'KHAL HALAY'LAH] ON THE WALLS
  • 00:24:36.100 --> 00:24:41.120
  • OF JERUSALEM WE WILL POST WATCHMEN TO SAFEGUARD OUR
  • 00:24:41.130 --> 00:24:45.110
  • BELOVED CITY EVERY DAY AND EVERY NIGHT. TONIGHT WE SAY LOUD AND
