Soon after reaching 5 million followers on Facebook, United with Israel continues to achieve milestones of success as UWI’s Jerusalem Declaration, in support of the eternal, undivided capital of the Jewish State, has now been signed by 700,000 people from around the world
“It’s one thing to have an online petition and quite another to publicly display the actual names of the signatories on the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City,” said United with Israel founder Michael Gerbitz.
A historic initiative bearing over 500,000 signatures from 168 countries presented to US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat is a global statement of support for a united Jerusalem.
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat was visibly moved when presented with a historic book, compiled by United with Israel, of over half a million signatures of members from around the world declaring support for a united Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish state.
The Czech Republic recently caved to a Palestinian demand to order its schools to teach that Tel Aviv – not Jerusalem – is the capital of the State of Israel, but after an intense diplomatic intervention by Israel, the Slavic state backed down and decided to keep Jerusalem as the capital in all textbooks.
