Media personality-turned-politician Yair Lapid revealed a few of his political views on Thursday, indicating during a Facebook exchange that he opposed the division of Jerusalem, saying that the capital was “more than just a place.”

“Jerusalem belongs to the people of Israel and not to anyone else,” Lapid wrote.

When one Facebook user asked the former Channel 2 anchorman to give a straight answer, “not a politician’s one,” concerning the issue, Lapid said that, in these subjects, “I’m for sense – the politicians can go on evading.”

“As a citizen, I can tell you Jerusalem is not just a place to me, but it’s my history and national ethos as well and I think it belongs to the people of Israel and no to anyone else,” Lapid wrote.

Although wary about detailing his views to the media, Lapid has been quite active in expressing them on his Facebook page.
