Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu emphasized Israel’s right to build and expand Jerusalem undivided during a ceremony on Wednesday in memory of former tourism minister Rehavam “Gandhi” Ze’evi, who was assassinated ten years ago.

Speaking in the Knesset’s plenum, Netanyahu explained that Ze’evi’s “life began in Jerusalem and ended in Jerusalem. That was Gandi – a man of Jerusalem.”

“All who love Jerusalem should learn from Gandhi,” Netanyahu said. “We must protect its unity, stop those who try to rewrite its history, and remind the world over and over again that Jerusalem was never the capital of any other nation.”

“Over thousands of years in exile, the Jewish people prayed to return to Jerusalem,” the prime minister recounted, quoting the Psalm: “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand whither.”
