I am writing to you today about a matter that weighs heavily on my heart. That matter being about the idea to divide Jerusalem. The account of how the Jews came to have the land that is called Israel, where Jeruslaem is, that is given in the Bible is one that I believe to be absolutely true. Therefore, I must warn you about this dangerous course of action you want to take to divide Jerusalem.
The Lord God gave this land to the Jews. It was a private deal between him and Israel. The Lord gave no man the authority to insist that any of it be negotiated away and that includes Jerusalem.
The following account of these actions and what the rest of mankind's reaction to it should be are summed up in these few verses from the Book of Genesis Chapter 12:
1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
