minutes later President Harry Truman caused the United States to be the very
first nation to recognize the reborn State of Israel he later regretted that
he waited so long 70 years since that memorable event almost to the minute the
United States finally takes the next step a step awaited voted upon litigated
and prayed for for all these years today we opened the United States Embassy in
Jerusalem Israel again the United States leads the way as

Congressman Jody hice congressman Scott Taylor
congressman Lee Zeldin congressman George holding and congressman Ron

stood at a podium here in Jerusalem and made a passionate and compelling case
that this day would come and so it has I’d also like to welcome with the
governor of my home state of Florida who also has been a strong advocate for
Jerusalem Governor Rick Scott in 1995 the Jerusalem embassy Act became law
voted in favor overwhelmingly by both houses of Congress and led I should add
by a former senator who is here today senator joseph Lieberman that law which
was reaffirmed just last year by a vote of 90 to 0 and the Senate declare
Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel and mandated the move of the embassy 23
long years have passed since the transfer of the embassy became the law
of the land but today we keep our promise to the American people and we
extend to Israel the same right we extend to every other nation the right
to designate its capital city a capital city I should add which houses
all three seats of government with the 3,000 year old history dating back to
the time when King David made Jerusalem the capital of ancient Israel Jerusalem
has inspired Americans since well before the founding of our Republic John
Winthrop in 1630 as he approached Massachusetts Bay spoke of his quest to
build the New Jerusalem as a city on a hill a phrase later expanded by
President Reagan to be a shining city on a hill the United States established its
consulate in Jerusalem in 1840 for a hundred and four years before the birth
of the State of Israel and President Lincoln relaxing for the
first time in years as the Civil War came to an end
told his wife Mary that it was finally time for him to take some rest and he
expressed his hope and desire to visit the holy city of Jerusalem many say that
those were his last words as he sat next to her in Ford’s Theater
I think President Lincoln is smiling today as another great Republican Donald
J Trump opens our embassy and the city that Lincoln admired so much I would like to thank the faith leaders
who are here and the entire faith community for their support and I’d like
to now call upon two of them dr. Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of
Dallas along with rabbi Zalman Wallach from Chabad to offer a few words of
inspiration Heavenly Father we come before you the
God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob thanking you for bringing us to this momentous
occasion in the life of your people and in the history of our world four
thousand years ago you said to your servant Abraham that you would make him
the father of a great nation a nation through whom the whole world would be
blessed and now as we look back we see how Israel has been that blessing to the
entire world through her innovations in medicine technology and energy but most
of all Israel has blessed this world by pointing to us to you the one true God
through the message of her prophets the scriptures and the Messiah we come
before you today thanking you for your providential and powerful protection of
this nation from all who would seek to destroy her this nation the nation of
Israel you have called the apple of your eye and father we are also grateful as
we think about what happened 70 years ago today at this very moment when you
fulfilled the prophecies of the prophets from thousands of years ago and
regathered your people in this promised land now we want to thank you especially
today for the courageous leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and
his determination to do whatever it takes to protect his people at all cost
we are equally grateful for the skillful work of our ambassador David Friedman
who so effectively represents our United States policy of always standing by and
supporting our most reliable ally and friend in the Middle East and now father
as we come to dedicate this embassy in the city of Jerusalem the city that you
named is the capital of Israel 3,000 years ago we want to thank you for the
tremendous leadership of our great president Donald J Trump
without president Trump’s determination resolve courage we would not be here
today and I believe father I speak for every one of us when we say we thank you
every day that you have given us a president who boldly stands on the right
side of history but more importantly stands on the right side of you oh god
when it comes to Israel and now today father we want to pray what the psalmist
prayed 3,000 years ago pray for the Peace of Jerusalem may
those who love her prosper may peace well within her walls and we
pray this in the name and the spirit of the Prince of Peace Jesus our Lord amen distinguished guests
I’ll just referred to by ambassador Friedman and honored friends it is with
profound gratitude to God Almighty that I addressed you here today at the
Embassy of the United States of America to Israel in the holy city and eternal
capital of the Jewish people Jerusalem truth is not determined by
popular opinion it is eternal not ephemeral unchanging not relative truth
stands the test of time while empires ideologies and philosophies rise and
fall the Jewish people’s attachment to this holy city has never waned or
faltered it is truth King David imagined a temple here and
his son Solomon built it here the prophets pleaded cajoled and Thunder
here from cradle to grave for thousands of years Jews of every extraction have
had the beautiful name of this beautiful city on their lips Jerusalem Jews have
lived here and when they didn’t they directed their prayers here that is
truth and today friends we celebrate the acknowledgement of this truth by a
country that has been blessed by God with global
influence the United States of America we applaud and thank the United States
of America and President Donald Trump for standing for this truth and for
continuously exhibiting a fearless commitment to Israel on the world stage
we pray that God Almighty continued to bless the United States her people and
her leaders and we pray that other countries follow their example of
affirming the Jewish people’s eternal bond with this holy city there is no
more quintessentially Jewish idea and aspiration than peace the beauty of
Jerusalem as my mentor the Lubavitcher Rebbe Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson
of blessed memory once said is that it’s walls are unifying walls within the
confines of Jerusalem every man woman and child became part of something
greater than themselves peace is ingrained in the mayor of Jerusalem but
the Prophet Zechariah said you must love truth and peace peace Shalom is the
inseparable sister of truth I pray that from today’s exalting of truth there
flow to Jerusalem her neighbors and to the entire world a true and perfect
peace may that they visualize by the prophets swiftly arrived when nation
shall not take up a sword against nation when there will be harmony not war
respect not envy love not hate in the words of the psalmist who sang his
longing for peace not far from right here pray for the Peace of Jerusalem may
those who love you be at peace Amin Thank You pastor Jeffress and rabbi
Wallach leading the president’s delegation to this historic event
his Deputy Secretary of State John J Sullivan Deputy Secretary Sullivan
served last month as our acting Secretary of State leading the
transition of leadership to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo he then returned to
the number two position in the State Department
I am honored to introduce deputy secretary John J Sullivan Thank You
ambassador Friedman for those kind remarks on behalf of secretary Pompeo
thank you for your dedicated efforts to establish this diplomatic mission and to
ensure the strongest possible bond between Israel and the United States
we’re also grateful to you in your team for the close coordination in months of
detailed planning to prepare for this important day of celebration it’s an
honor for me to be part of president Trump’s official delegation on this
momentous occasion on a day as you have already noted so steeped in history it’s
a privilege to stand before so many distinguished guests political and
religious leaders of Israel in the United States and to welcome you all to
the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem Israel I also come with a message from
secretary Pompeo who sends his best wishes it meant a
great deal to him that he was able to visit Israel on his first trip overseas
and he regrets that he’s unable to be here with us today in person
the secretary asked me to convey on his behalf the great pride that he feels a
pride that I share on this historic day for our two countries as president Trump
said in December moving the u.s. embassy embassy to
Jerusalem is first a recognition of reality a reality many many years in the
making Jerusalem is indisputably the capital of
Israel a capital chosen by a sovereign nation as the seat of its government but
moving the US embassy on a broader scale is also a step towards advancing peace
in this city in the broader region and throughout the world the streets of
Jerusalem with its many temples mosques and churches point to its place in
history but in Jerusalem we can also see a glimmer of the future filled with hope
the hope for greater understanding and peace today I’m confident that the u.s.
embassy in Jerusalem will be in the words of President Trump a magnificent
tribute to peace that is what we are celebrating here today as we officially
open the newest diplomatic mission of the United States of America as we do we
also recognize the deep and historic friendship that brought this mission
into being on this day as several have noted the United States recognized the
State of Israel it is fitting that today we mark a new milestone and a new day of
bright hope and promise for the United States and Israel the State Department
is proud to continue our close cooperation with the Israeli government
and people from our new embassy here in Jerusalem we’re grateful to President
Rivlin Prime Minister Netanyahu and the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs for their friendship in their hard work to keep
our alliance ironclad thank you all for your tremendous support as we sought to
make the president’s pledge of the move of our embassy a reality we’re eager to
make our bonds even stronger from this very place the United States is
committed to Israel we’re committed to our alliance and we are committed to
building a more peaceful more prosperous future together may God bless the
us-israel alliance on this historic day and I thank you for letting me be a part
of it Thank You mr. Deputy Secretary President Trump who made this all
reality could not be here today but did record a message to honor us at this
ceremony please watch and listen exactly 70 years ago the United States under
President Harry Truman became the first nation to recognize the State of Israel
today we officially opened the United States Embassy in Jerusalem
congratulations it’s been a long time coming
almost immediately after declaring statehood in 1948 Israel designated the
city of Jerusalem as its capital the capital the Jewish people established in
ancient times so important today Jerusalem is the seat of Israel’s
government it is the home of the Israeli legislature and the Israeli Supreme
Court and Israel’s prime minister and president Israel is a sovereign nation
with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own
capital yet for many years we fail to acknowledge the obvious the plain
reality that Israel’s capital is Jerusalem on December 6 2017 at my
direction the United States finally an affair
recognized Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel today we follow through on
this recognition and open our embassy in the historic and sacred land of
Jerusalem and we’re opening it many many years ahead of schedule
as I said in December our greatest hope is for peace the United States remains
fully committed to facilitating a lasting peace agreement and we continue
to support the status quo at Jerusalem’s holy sites including at the Temple Mount
also known as Haram al-sharif this city and its entire nation is a testament to
the unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people the United States will always be
a great friend of Israel and a partner in the cause of freedom and peace we
wish ambassador Freedman good luck as he takes up his office in this beautiful
Jerusalem embassy and we extend a hand in friendship to Israel the Palestinians
and to all of their neighbors may there be peace may God bless this embassy may
God bless all who serve there and may God bless the United States of America
thank you it’s now my great honor to call upon
Treasury secretary Stephen minuchin and senior adviser Ivanka Trump to

Embassy and to read the dedication on behalf of the 45th President of the
United States on America we welcome you officially and for the first time to the
Embassy of the United States here in Jerusalem the capital of Israel thank

friend Jared Kushner mr. Kirschner will now offer his thoughts on this historic
moment Thank You ambassador Friedman you’ve

today’s really been spectacular so thank you very much I am so proud to be here
today in Jerusalem the eternal heart of the Jewish people and I am especially
honored to be here today as a representative of the 45th President of
the United States Donald J Trump I also want to thank Prime Minister Netanyahu
and Sarah for being with us here today to celebrate this historic occasion
thank you very much I’d like to ask all the members of Congress who are here on
their delegations to rise and be recognized today would not be possible
without your advocacy throughout the years Thank You deputy secretary Sullivan for
leading our delegation secretary minuchin for your leadership and for
your friendship and of course Ivanka thank you for all the great work you do
to help so many people in our country and throughout the world including me so
I love you I also want to acknowledge vice president Mike Pence for his
tireless efforts to strengthen the us-israel relationship in December of
last year president Trump announced to the world that the United States would
finally recognize the truth that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel he
also declared that we would soon move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem
and just five months later we are standing on these grounds while
presidents before him have backed down from their pledge to move the American
Embassy once in office this president delivered because when President Trump
makes a promise he keeps it but today also demonstrates American
leadership by moving our embassy to Jerusalem we have shown the world once
again that the United States can be trusted
we stand with our friends and our allies and above all else we’ve shown that the
United States of America will do what’s right and so we have Israel is a
sovereign nation with the right to determine its own capital the same right
that is enjoyed by every other country in the world in taking this action the
United States has also chosen to strengthen the bond between our two
countries our special bond is the envy of nations
throughout the world this bond is forged through shared history sustained through
shared interests and immortalized through shared principles the United
States stands with Israel because we both believe in freedom we stand
together because we both believe in human rights we stand together because
we believe democracy is worth defending and the United States stands with Israel
because we believe we know that it is the right thing to do when we stand together for the
principles and the values we share we shine a light of justice unto the world
Israel proves every day the boundless power of freedom this land is the only
land in the Middle East in which Jews Muslims and Christians and people of all
faiths participate and worship freely according to their beliefs Israel
protects women’s rights freedom of speech and the right of every individual
to reach their god-given potential these are the same values that the United
States cherishes these are the values that bind us together these are also the
values that have made Israel one of the most vibrant nations in the world this
tiny population has spurred advancements in technology medicine and agriculture
making the world a healthier safer and more prosperous place these are the
blessings we hope Israel can one day share with its neighbors last week
President Trump acknowledged another truth and kept another promise he
announced his intention to exit the dangerous flawed and one-sided Iran deal Iran’s aggression threatens the many
peace-loving citizens throughout the region and the entire world from Israel
to Jordan to Egypt to Saudi Arabia and beyond many leaders are fighting to
modernize their countries and create better lives for their people in
confronting common threats and in pursuit of common interests previously
unimaginable opportunities and alliances are emerging I am also proud to be here
today as a member of the team that president
Trump has entrusted to lead the efforts to bring peace between the Israelis and
the Palestinians it has been an honor to work with our new Secretary of State
Mike Pompeo national security advisor John Bolton our ambassador David Friedman and our
Special Representative Jason Greenblatt who really does so much pretty well I also want to acknowledge ambassador
Nikki Haley who really has created a new day for Israel anyway on December 6 president Trump was very
clear that his decision and today’s celebration do not reflect a departure
from our strong commitment to lasting peace a peace that overcomes the
conflicts of the past in order to give our children a brighter and more
boundless future as we have seen from the protests of the last month and even
today those provoking violence are part of the problem and not part of the
solution the United States is prepared to support a peace agreement in every
way that we can we believe that it is possible for both sides to gain more
than they give so that all people can live in peace safe from danger free from
fear and able to pursue their dreams the United States recognizes the sensitivity
surrounding Jerusalem a city that means so much to so many Jerusalem is a city
unique in the history of civilization no other place on earth can claim
significance to three major religions each day Jews pray at the Western Wall
Muslims bow in prayer at al-aqsa mosque and Christians worship at the Church of
the Holy Sepulchre that is why President Trump has called many times including
right now on all parties to maintain the status quo Jerusalem’s holy sites
including the Temple Mount also known as Haram al-sharif while the challenges to
peace are numerous I have personally seen that the determination of the
leaders in the region and throughout the world remains steadfast they have seen
too much pain sorrow and wasted opportunity and they think it’s time to
try something better throughout history Jerusalem has been
the victim of war in conquest it has been used to divide people and to
instigate conflict by those with evil intentions but it does not have to be
this way Jerusalem must remain a city that brings people of all faiths
together to visit to worship to respect each other and to appreciate the majesty
of history and the glory of God’s creation Israel
has been a responsible custodian of Jerusalem and has kept these religious
sites open to all in fact immediately after the 1967 war one of
the first acts of the Knesset was to adopt the protection of holy places law
ensuring access to places of worship to members of all religions funds were
immediately allocated to repair any damage to the churches mosques and
synagogues that suffered through war conflict and neglect as Israel turned 70
the search for a lasting peace turns over a new leaf
one of realism and of not being afraid to stand strongly with our allies for
what is good for what is right and for what is true when there when there is
peace in this region we will look back upon this day and remember that the
journey to peace started with a strong America recognizing the truth the pursuit of peace is the noblest
pursuit of humankind I believe pieces Within Reach if we dare
to believe that the future can be different from the past
that we are not condemned to relive history and that the way things were is
not how they must forever be it will not be an easy road and it will be filled
with difficult moments and tough decisions but if we dream big if we lead
with courage we can change the trajectory for millions from hopeless to
boundless this is a hope that many of us know personally I am here today as a
proud American and the grandson of Holocaust survivors during World War two
my late grandparents Ray and Joseph Kushner fled their homes to the forests
of Belarus to escape Nazi persecution somehow they managed to resist the
horrors and survive after the war they built a new life in America a beacon of
hope a land of limitless opportunity in my office in the White House I keep a
photo of them on my desk to remind me of how high the stakes are when nations
fail to recognize right from wrong and the decisive power America has to tip
the scales in favor of the righteous today we take another historic step in
that direction I am confident that as a result our
nation’s will be stronger our peoples more prosperous and our futures filled
with even greater promise for peace may God bless you may God bless Israel may
God bless the United States of America Jarrid just referred to as two
grandparents who survived the Holocaust to the Holocaust survivors who are here
with us today and to those who are watching on television who thought that
this day would never come we can never relieve the nightmare of
your past but we do hope that today brings you some measure of comfort it is
now my great honor to call upon the prime minister of the state of Israel
Benjamin Netanyahu president Rivlin the shavasana said I

Jerusalem King David established our capital 3,000 years ago in Jerusalem
King Solomon built our temple which stood for many centuries in Jerusalem
Jewish exile from Babylon rebuilt the temple which stood for many more
centuries in Jerusalem the Maccabees rededicated that temple and restored
Jewish sovereignty in this land and it was here in Jerusalem some 2,000 years
later that the soldiers of Israel spoke three immortal words how a bite be a den

Isaiah 44:24-28 “This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself, who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense, who carries out the words of his servants and fulfils the predictions of his messengers, who says of Jerusalem, ‘ It shall be inhabited,’ and of the towns of Judah, ‘ They shall be built,’ and of their ruins, ‘I will restore them,’ who says to the watery deep, ‘Be dry, and I will dry up your streams,’ who says of Cyrus, ‘ He is my Shepherd and will accomplish all that I please,’ he will say of Jerusalem, “ Let it be built,” and of the temple, “ Let it’s foundations be laid.” AMEN. Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvellous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. The Lord has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations. He has remembered his love and faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our GOD. Hallelujah, AMEN. Nga mihi ki Israel, May the LORD bless you and keep you, May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto. Amen

  30. Those who sought to destroy Israel have all perished. The unseemingly invincible empires are gone but Israel is alive. The people of Israel survived. They are alive. God bless ISRAEL and all those who call JERUSALEM their home.

  31. Truth is not Measured by Many Voice but truth only measured by People like truth and do it.
    It is really great decision to decided that Jerusalem as capital City of Israel and move Embassy to there, while world united together and denied the truth on the Jerusalem. His Excellence Donald John Trump the President of USA absolutely stand with truth. My God bless him. God bless USA and Israel. If nations against the truth, they against God and those against God will be destroyed. We will pray for them as they not fall under God’s anger punishment.

  32. Amen! Yeshua is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! Hear, O Israel the Lord our God is One! We love You our Father! We love You Jesus! We love You Holy Spirit! Hallelujah!

  33. John 4: 19- 21 " Jesus replied, "believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.

  34. The name "Muhammad" has been discovered in the Bible in the original Hebrew language.

    In the 5th chapter of the Shir haShirim ( שיר השירים ), which is one of the five megilot or Sacred Scrolls that are part of the Hebrew Bible or for short the "Song of Solomon" (also called "Song of Songs"). That chapter is giving a prophecy about an individual to come, a mystery man.

    Song of Songs 5:15 compares this prophetic mystery man to the land of "Lebanon" which is the land of the Arabs. This implies that the mystery man would be an Arab.

    Song of Songs 5:10 says: "My beloved is white and ruddy, pre-eminent above ten thousand." This is a prophecy of Prophet Muhammad as he conquered Mecca. It is a well known historically documented fact that in the year 630 CE Muhammad entered Mecca as the leader of an army of "ten thousand men". This verse and the preceeding verse (v. 11) also match Muhammad's physical discription as found in Muslim sources (light skin and black hair).

    In reading the English translation of Song of Songs 5:16 it finishes the description by saying: "He is altogether lovely" but what most people don't know is that the name of that man was given in the original megilot. Here is the name written in ancient Hebrew as it appears in verse sixteen: מחמד . It is read as : "Mahammad". According to Ben Yehuda's Hebrew-English Dictionary, it is correctly pronounced as "Mahammad".

    If you don't believe me, go to these translator links, paste the name מחמד and then translate it into English. You will see that מחמד is translated as "Muhammad".

    You can also see and listen to the Song of Songs in its original form, in Hebrew where Muhammad is mentioned by name in the below link (please notice the "im" in Hebrew is a plural of respect):

  35. A must see! The legendary video in which a Jew rebuffs the claim of evangelicals, newly edited and now in annotations!

    Even Jesus said Allah. According to an Aramaic dictionary, ( ) the word for God in Aramaic (The language which Jesus spoke) is "Aalah", which is the exact same thing as the Arabic "Allah" since in English there are many ways to spell a foreign word (Example you can spell the Muhammad's name in 27 ways, including Muhammad and Mohamed). Just visit the link and type "God" if you don't believe me, then scroll down to "Pronunciation"

    So Christians, if your god Jesus said "Allah", it means the Muslims are using the correct word for the creator!

    The word Allah is better than the word God and is purer since God can be pluralised (gods) and genderised (goddess), the word Allah is more suitable for being HIS name because it CANNOT be genderised nor pluralised (in Arabic) since it is genderless and single, an example in English would be the planet Mars, it is genderless (you cannot say Marsa or whatever it would be if it could be genderised) and it is unpluralisable (you cannot say Marses), it simply wouldn't make sense to genderise or pluralise this planet, the same goes for Allah (الله) in Arabic, so in essence IT IS SUPERIOR to the word God.

    Lets not forget that Arab Christians, and Jews (as is the case in this video) say Allah, and have been saying it before there were even any western Christians!

    Jesus said Allah too, so if you consider yourself a serious Christian you should start saying it to follow your god Jesus. So please, open your brains a little, it's good for you.

    Now to see what different prophets called God.

    Abraham PBUH called him El shaddai

    Moses PBUH called him Elohim (see Genesis)

    Jesus PBUH called him Allah

    Muhammad PBUH called him Allah

    Two prophets called him Allah, and they are the most known of prophets, Muhammad and Jesus peace be upon them. Nonetheless all of these are Semitic words, so as far as I am concerned, any Semitic word for God is acceptable, but why use a European word for Allah when not a single prophet used a European word?

    Also, did you notice something? All of these words for Allah begin with either EL or AL, this is because in proto-Semitic (an ancient language which all Semitic languages, such as Arabic and Hebrew, evolved from) the word for God was AL or EL, Abraham PBUH spoke proto-Semitic and he called God "El shaddai", "El" here meaning God and "shaddai" meaning mountain, so basically he called God "God of the mountain".

    The Semetic languages evolved in a way that they retain the word AL/EL at the beginning of the word, but there is an additional "lah" in Arabic and an additional "lohim" in Hebrew, I hope this clarifies.

  36. Congratulations to Israel. God be with you. Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel now and forever…
