"My friends, this is a great day for Israel. It's a great day for America. It's a great day for our fantastic partnership... but I believe it's also a great day for peace," Netanyahu remarked. "The truth and peace are interconnected. A peace that is based on lies will only crash on the rocks of Middle Eastern realities. And the truth will always be that Jerusalem has always been, will always be, the capital of the Jewish state.""May the opening of this embassy, in this city, spread this truth far and wide, and may the truth promote a lasting peace between Israel and all of our neighbors."
