“Jerusalem Day serves as an important reminder that only under Israeli control has the rights of all ethnic and religious groups to enjoy the city’s religious and cultural sites been preserved.”

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein received an email Saturday night in which parliamentarians from around the world reaffirmed their support for Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s undivided capital, in a letter sent in honor of Jerusalem Day.

The letter was sent by the chairmen of Israel Allies Caucuses in 20 countries on five continents, as well as by two US senators known for their strong support of Israel, Republicans Mark Kirk of Illinois and Ted Cruz of Texas.

“From our capitals to yours, we, the chairmen, members and supporters of Israel Allies Caucuses in the US Congress and in parliaments around the world, congratulate all inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Jewish people and the nation of Israel on the 49th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel,” the signatories wrote.
