The Zionist Conspiracy

Yesterday Jerusalem Day was marked in Israel (though the 28th of Iyar is actually tomorrow), in honor of the 36th anniversary of Israel's liberation of the Old City. It's therefore worthwhile to note a few words about Jerusalem by a former leader of Israel:
"Jerusalem combines the past, present, and future, from all the generations of the nation of Israel. Let us remove it from the points of contention that divide us, as it does not help our position in safeguarding the city. Jerusalem shall forever remain ours because it is in our souls. Never again will Jerusalem be under foreign sovereignty. Only someone who has no sense of reality, who does not understand anything about Israel's yearning and longing and the Jewish people's historical connection to Jerusalem for over 3,000 years would even consider any making concessions over the city."
Those words were spoken by Ehud Barak on June 1, 2000 at Ammunition Hill on Jerusalem Day 5760, very shortly before he terminated the consensus over Jerusalem when he made his infamous concessions at Camp David and Taba.
