Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday evening participated in the Jerusalem Day celebration at the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva, declaring that Jerusalem will be forever united. Referring to recent terror incidents in Jerusalem, Netanyahu stated, “We are determined to pursue the terrorists and confront all our enemies like a fortified wall, like the walls of Jerusalem.”

“At the same time,” continued Netanyahu, “we have another eternal answer to terrorism – we will continue to develop the city, to build it, to make it a superpower in education and science, the center of the Torah. I pledge that as Prime Minister I will continue to develop the city. The city was united, and will never be divided again.” Earlier Sunday, Netanyahu spoke at the official Jerusalem Day ceremony marking 48 years since the unification of Jerusalem at Ammunition Hill National Memorial Site in the city. “Islamic fanaticism threatens Jerusalem, the Middle East and the entire world: Sunni fanaticism, such as that of Islamic State, and the Shi’ite extremists led by the Ayatollahs in Tehran,” said Netanyahu.
