Netanyahu at Old city Synagogue inuaguration: Israel allows freedom of religion for people of all faiths.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other leaders attending the inauguration of a restored synagogue in Jerusalem's Old City on Monday tried to calm tensions surrounding Israeli actions in East Jerusalem.

"Many people are excited about this moment - and justifiably so," said Netanyahu at the ceremony. "We have allowed believers in other faiths to conserve their houses of worship. We proudly hold on to our heritage, while at the same time allowing others freedom of religion."
