As reported in the Jordan Times (6 Oct.1999): "At the briefing on Capitol Hill, Rev. Munib A. Younan, the Palestinian Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Jerusalem and the Holy Land ... urged his audience to undertake "vigorous" opposition to (Congressional) efforts to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, saying `it is time the United States use its influence to guarantee that the city of Jerusalem, the `City of Peace', be not exclusivistic, but pluralistic.' "

Martin Luther, more than 450 years ago, said:

"Because you see that after 1500 years of misery (when no end is certain or will ever be so) the Jews are not disheartened nor are they even cognizant of their plight., you might with a good conscience despair of them. For it is impossible that God should let his people (if they were that) wait so long without consolation and prophecy."
However, if the diaspora breaks:"... let them head for Jerusalem, build temples, set up priesthoods... take the land into their possession. For when this happens, they will see us come quickly on their heels and likewise become Jews...."
