‘Empires Have Come and Gone, Only Israel Remains True’

Economics Minister Naftali Bennett participated Tuesday evening at the inauguration of the “Beit Orot” neighborhood in Jerusalem, named after the late Rabbi Chanan Porat.

Bennett spoke at the inauguration, reflecting upon current diplomatic processes vis-à-vis the Palestinian Authority. He said, “On the Eve of Jerusalem Day, in this place, we see that the process of expanding Jerusalem is at its height… Empires have come and gone, and only the immortality of the State of Israel remains true. Our generation has merited being the safe keepers of the city of Jerusalem, and I am excited to stand here and look around at the different neighborhoods… and now another neighborhood has been build, in the heart of this holy city, that we returned to in order to stay here forever.”
