Yom Yerushalayim

Today is Yom Yerushalayim, the thirty-ninth anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, Israel’s capital.

I was going to post about it, but gave up after I saw Treppenwitz’s post. Go, read and listen—and don’t forget the tissues.

He makes an excellent point:

We should never forget or take for granted the sacrifices that were made so that we could have our city back under Jewish Control after 2000 years! It makes me sad to think about how many people would re-divide Jerusalem again in a second on the off chance that it might buy us a few weeks of a shaky “truce.”
How soon they forget.
