The Knesset passed the Jerusalem Bill on its first reading late Wednesday night by a 65-12 majority. It reads: Jerusalem is Israel’s capital; the unity and integrity of greater Jerusalem, in its post-Six-Day War borders, shall not be impaired; the President, the Knesset, the government and the Supreme Court shall have their seats in Jerusalem.
