Jerusalem’s Mayor Nir Barkat posted a video to youtube Wednesday. The video is in Hebrew, but has English subtitles. In it he states:
“My fellow citizens: During the last eight years the Obama administration has pushed for a building settlement freeze, has surrendered to the Iranians and radical Islam, and has abandoned Israel to a hostile UN resolution.
This week president Donald Trump enters the White House. Let’s all welcome him together – as our friend – and thank him for his intentions to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, thereby conveying a clear message to the world: Jerusalem is Israel’s undivided capital!
Join me in signing a letter supporting President Trump’s decision to move the Embassy to Jerusalem. and his decisions supporting the State of Israel. Let’s make Israel and USA relations great again!”
Mayor Nir Barkat is an Israeli businessman, and philanthropist. He has been Jerusalem’s mayor since 2008.
