MK Deri: Jerusalem is Jewish People's Eternal Capital

Member of Knesset Aryeh Deri, chairman of the Shas party, lamented the shelving of a bill on Jerusalem, on Wednesday. He called the city "the eternal capital of the united Jewish people." He said the bill would have helped "preserve Jerusalem." It called for at least 80 MKs to give prior approval to any negotiations that would result in relinquishing portions to Jerusalem to a foreign entity.
