MK Yitzhak Kroizer of the ultranationalist Otzma Yehudit party says the Flag March is about “applying sovereignty to all parts of Jerusalem” and celebrating the reunification of the city.

“At the Flag March we demonstrate our happiness at the reunification of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people, celebrate with the masses of the Jewish people and declare ‘the Jewish people live,’” says the MK, who was accompanied by his two young daughters.

Kroizer says he does not condone the provocative and racist chants that have often been a feature at the event, but insists that such incidents are “not the essence” of the event.
