CHRISTIANS CALL FOR
A UNITED JERUSALEM

We, the undersigned Christian spiritual leaders, communicating weekly to more than 100 million Christian Americans, are proud to join together in supporting the continued sovereignty of the State of Israel over the holy city of Jerusalem. We support Israel's efforts to reach reconciliation with its Arab neighbors, but we believe that Jerusalem or any portion of it shall not be negotiable in the peace process. Jerusalem must remain undivided as the eternal capital of the Jewish people.
In support of the State of Israel's rightful sovereignty over all of Jerusalem, we remind the world that:
  • Jerusalem suffered through 19 years of Arab occupation until 1967, a dark period when Christians and Jews alike were denied access to their holy places and thousands of Arab Christians felt compelled to leave the city. Now, for the first time in 2000 years, the City of god is accessible to people of all faiths.
  • Jerusalem has been the spiritual and political capital of only the Jewish people for 3000 years.
  • Since 1967, the Israeli government has demonstrated sensitivity to the concerns and needs of all of Jerusalem's residents, including the Palestinians.
  • Israel's biblical right to Jerusalem as a sovereign capital is by divine mandate and is secured by God's irrevocable covenant made with Abraham (Genesis 12:17) and reiterated to Isaac, Jacob, Moses (Leviticus 26:44-45, Deuteronomy 7:7-8), David (Samuel 7:12-16, I Kings 15:4) and to Abraham's heirs (Psalms 89:34-37 and Psalms 105:8-11).
  • Judaism is the only religion in which the city of Jerusalem is an inseparable part of religious faith. Jews alone are mandated by biblical law to celebrate their religion in Jerusalem and self-judgment is pronounced upon Jews who forget Jerusalem (see Psalms 137).
Join us in our holy mission to ensure that Jerusalem will remain the undivided, eternal capital of Israel. The battle for Jerusalem has begun, and it is time for believers in Christ to support our Jewish brethren and the State of Israel. The time for unity with the Jewish people is now.
