Arutz Sheva reports:
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu vowed at the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva in Jerusalem Thursday night that the Israeli flag will continue to fly over the Western Wall (Kotel). The first prime minister in years to appear at the venerable yeshiva on Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day), he ignored U.S. President Barack Obama’s apparent trial balloon that he wants to see the United Nations flag fly over the Old City holy sites.
Prime Minister Netanyahu declared, "The flag that flies over the Kotel is the Israeli flag... Our holy places, the Temple Mount -- will remain under Israeli sovereignty forever.”
Nevermind the insult of the suggestion to fly the flag of the UN over Jerusalem in place of an Israeli flag when the UN has been so obsessed with damning Israel and holding it to insane double-standards. Nevermind the audacity and slap in the face such a suggestion entails. Nevermind that.
Anyone who's been following Obama's stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can spot from a mile away the ulterior goal of Obama's desire to have a UN flag flying over Jerusalem. First comes the flag, next a suggestion of constructing a UN building in Jerusalem, then giving that building some legal authority in the city, and before you know it Israel has lost control of Jerusalem so that part of it can be given to Fatah to placate their insane demand of East Jerusalem. Which begs the question... how stupid does Obama think Bibi is?
Bibi's response is music to the ears, soothing for the soul and reassuring on the mind. Bless this man for having the courage to stand up for Israel and say 'No' to Obama. A man of this caliber has been a long time coming to Israel in this modern day.
