Publisher Description

April 13, 2006. A Jerusalem Post headline reads: “Jericho man murdered over home sale.” The forty-two-year-old father of eight was kidnapped, shot seven times, thrown into his car, and set on fire—because he had sold his Jerusalem apartment to Jews.

Radical Islam has long desired to seize Jerusalem and cut it off to Christian and Jewish believers. In this revealing new book, Dore Gold, bestselling author and former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, reminds us that the war on terror is also a war on faith.

Gold argues that only an Israeli-controlled Jerusalem can preserve the city’s freedom and its openness to people of all faiths. Referring to recent archaeological discoveries, he suggests that uncovering Jerusalem’s past and the truth of biblical history can be the key to saving its future.

Quotes

  • “May adds life to Gold’s words with a soft-spoken but intense and somewhat emotional narrative style that is quite divergent from the rancorous debate that characterizes most discussions about the Middle East, Israel in particular.”

    " This book could be called the case for Jewish controlled Jerusalem. This book argues that internationalization and Palestinian appeasement are both failed policies when it comes to the Holy city. Reading this book made me rethink my personal views. "

    " A great history lesson on why Israel is the best choice to to govern Jerusalem -- but it is a bit too long and detailed. A bit like reading an encyclopedia. "

    " This was pretty much a one sided look at Isreal and their plight with Palestine/Islam. According to this book Isreal has done no wrong, never provoked, and certainly never attacked Palestinians except when defending itself. A little too biased for me. "

    " Good book with insightful thoughts but too much of it was over my head. I need to find a more simplified book that starts at the beginning of the conflict and outlines each parties complaints. This book just jumped right in talking about people and wars that I was unfamiliar with. "
