  • SHOULD CLEARLY BE ABIPARTISAN ISSUE.
  • 00:06:46.945 --> 00:06:50.115
  • - IN THE UNITED STATESTODAY OUT OF A POPULATION
  • 00:06:50.115 --> 00:06:52.584

  • 00:07:01.026 --> 00:07:03.529
  • THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT ISIMPORTANT TO NOT JUST
  • 00:07:03.529 --> 00:07:06.532
  • ISRAEL, NOT JUST THEJEWS, BUT TO AMERICANS
  • 00:07:06.532 --> 00:07:09.635
  • BECAUSE AMERICANS BY ANDLARGE UNDERSTAND THAT WHO
  • 00:07:09.635 --> 00:07:13.138
  • THEY ARE AS INDIVIDUALS,WHO THEY ARE AS A NATION,
  • 00:07:13.138 --> 00:07:16.208
  • THE VALUES THAT THEYCHERISH AND HOLD DEAR,
  • 00:07:16.208 --> 00:07:18.210
  • THEY HAVE THEIRROOTS IN JERUSALEM.
  • 00:07:18.210 --> 00:07:20.779
  • AND THEREFORE WE EXCAVATEIN THE CITY OF DAVID,
  • 00:07:20.779 --> 00:07:23.449
  • WHEN WE UNCOVER THEPLACES LIKE THE
