Faith-based public diplomacy NGO Israel365 founder Rabbi Tuly Weisz and Knesset Christian Allies Caucus director Josh Reinstein presented caucus chairwoman MK Gila Gamliel (Likud Beytenu) with 10,000 signatures from Christians on the Jerusalem Covenant Tuesday.

The original Jerusalem Covenant, an acknowledgement of the miraculous return of the Jewish people to Jerusalem, was drafted in 1992, the 25th anniversary of Jerusalem's reunification, and signed political, military and spiritual leaders.

Upon receiving the signatures, gathered in a period of three weeks, Gamliel said they prove Jerusalem is the center of the world and that Israel has a historic right and obligation to keep the city united.
