Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon addressed the Security Council on the Jewish People’s rights to the Land of Israel, reading from the bible and recounting 2,000 years of history to make his case.

In the year 70 CE, Danon noted, the Romans captured Jerusalem, destroyed the Holy Temple and renamed the area Syria-Palaestina in an effort to erase Jewish history. He then went on to discuss Israel’s legal rights based on modern history.

The speech was a hit and was translated into Spanish, Polish, French, Portuguese and Turkish, The Jerusalem Post reported.
