Prime Minister Netanyahu Visits UN Jerusalem Exhibition

(Prime Minister's Office) Prime Minister Netanyahu on Thursday visited the Jerusalem exhibit currently being presented at the UN building in New York. The exhibit presents 3,000 years of Jewish continuity in Jerusalem. It includes original archaeological finds that were discovered in Israel and which underscore the continuous link of the Jewish People to Israel and Jerusalem in various periods. Among the items are a First Temple-era seal discovered earlier this year and an impression of the seal of King Hezekiah. Netanyahu said: "This is a magnificent exhibit. There is a long history that is being cherished by us and by the friends of the Jewish people and the friends of truth - and is being denied by those who seek to erase the history of our people - our connection to our land and our connection to our eternal capital, Jerusalem." "This exhibit would not have been possible ten years ago and this exhibit will be unnecessary ten years from now....We are changing Israel's position in the world."
