Following the violent clashes between security forces and Arabs in Jerusalem, Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Tuesday stressed that Israel was the sovereign in Jerusalem, and said no amount of anti-Jewish preaching could undermine the Jewish people's connection to the city. "The state of Israel is the sovereign in Jerusalem and there is no force that can limit it in the eternal, united capital of the Jewish people," Yishai said. "Anti-Jewish preaching from within the country or from abroad cannot undermine nor loosen the connection between the people of Israel and their capital, and the need to strengthen and develop the city," the minister concluded.
