50th Anniversary of the Reunification of Jerusalem
Exactly 50 years ago today, the city of Jerusalem was reunited under Jewish control for the first time in 1,897 years.
By a unanimous vote, the US Senate passed a resolution co-sponsored by 17 bipartisan senators to commemorate the 50thanniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem following the liberation of its eastern sector in the 1967 war. The text said: “Jerusalem should remain the undivided capital of Israel in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected,” adding that “there has been a continuous Jewish presence in Jerusalem for 3,000 years.”
You’ll witness a joint celebration of this event between America’s Congress and Israel’s Knesset on today’s edition of End of the Age.
