Menachem Begin Thanks a Resident of Jerusalem for His "good words about Jerusalem"

Typed Letter Signed in Hebrew, "M. Begin", as Prime Minister of Israel, 1 page, 6.5" x 8.25". The Prime Minister, Jerusalem, Israel, September 9, 1980. To Mr. D. Israeli, Jerusalem. In Hebrew with full English translation. Two file holes in blank right margin. Fine condition.

In full: "Thank you for your letter of August 25, 1980, which reached our offices on September 1. I was pleased to read your good words about Jerusalem, the march, the departure of several embassies, the awareness, etc. With regard to the program 'Good Morning Israel'; I hope it will be accomplished after the required preparations will have been made, and that even the current critics will be happy about it. Happy New Year to you and your household."

On July 30, 1980, the Knesset (Parliament) of Israel codified as basic law that "complete and united" Jerusalem was Israel's "eternal capital." Within a month, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Haiti, the Netherlands, Panama, Uruguay, and Venezuela announced that they were moving their embassies from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv. Only the embassies of Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, and Guatemala remained in Jerusalem. The United Nations had urged internationalization of Jerusalem in 1948 and most countries refused to recognize Israel's subsequent adoption of Jerusalem as its capital. After the 1967 Six Day War, Israel united the former Jordanian East Jerusalem with Jerusalem. The United States has always had a consulate in Jerusalem, but the American Embassy has always been in Tel Aviv.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
