Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu recorded a Christmas greeting to Israel's Christian friends from a snowy Jerusalem, wishing them "the warmest Christmas greetings" from "the city of peace, Jerusalem."
"This is Jerusalem of gold, now it's Jerusalem of snow," Netanyahu said as snowflakes floated all around him.
"We celebrate Christmas with you. We know the importance you attach to our common heritage, to the State of Israel, and to the city of Jerusalem where so much of our common history was forged," he continued.
"We have a great past, we have common values, we have the desire to seize a common future of security, prosperity and peace," the prime minister added.
