Israel's U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon used the Bible to defend the Jewish people's claim to the land of Israel during a special session at the United Nations Security Council on Monday.
Danon was tasked with the job of proving the case for Jews' connection to the Holy Land during the session. He outlined four reasons, "the Bible, history, international law and the pursuit of international peace and security."
In a dramatic moment, Danon opened the Bible and read aloud God's covenant with Abraham from Genesis 17: "And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your descendants after you throughout the generations for an everlasting covenant. And I will give to you and your descendants after you all the land of Canaan for an everlasting possession and I will be their God."
Danon then raised up the Bible, turned to attendees and said, "This is the deed to our land."
"From the book of Genesis to the Jews' exodus, from Egypt to receiving the Torah on Mt. Sinai, and to the realization of God's covenant in the Holy Land of Israel, the Bible paints a consistent picture. The entire history of our people and our connection to Eretz Israel begins right here," he continued while lifting up the Bible once again.
Danon argued that all of the Abrahamic religions—Judaism, Christianity and Islam – affirm the Jewish people's connection to Israel.
"The Qur'an itself accepts the divine deed of the Jewish people to the land of Israel," he said.
