Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin ushered in Hanukka Wednesday by reiterating that he makes no distinction between Hebron and Jerusalem regarding Israel’s claim to either city.

“By building Hebron, Jerusalem itself will be built,” Rivlin declared while participating in a candle-lighting ceremony at the Cave of Patriarchs in Hebron, together with IDF soldiers, local Jewish leaders and yeshiva students. “We are not trespassers, we are not looters, and Hebron is not a coin that can be traded in the marketplace,” he added.
