A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Sign the Jerusalem Petition

Posted by Godefroi on October 23, 2007

As pressure builds against Israel to cede political and security control over the united city of Jerusalem:

United Jerusalem Petition

  • I support a unified Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty, to ensure free and open access for all people to the holy sites of the three major religions – Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
  • I support a unified Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty, as an expression of the unique relationship between the Jewish People and its eternal capital.
  • I support a unified Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty, so as never to return to the dark period of 1947-67, when Arab control over an artificially divided Jerusalem meant religious persecution, desecration of holy sites, and wanton destruction.
  • I support a unified Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty, according to the current municipal boundaries, set in the wake of Israel’s defensive 1967 Six Day War.
  • I support a unified Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty, where Jews may enjoy the right to pray on the Temple Mount, the holiest site in the Jewish world.

Go here to sign the petition, and make sure to check the box to sign the Preserve the Temple Mount petition.

    Sorry, I’d prefer the original model for Jerusalem post WWII – a UN controlled Jerusalem in order to ensure free and open access for all people to the holy sites of the three major religions – Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

    Why is that preferable to the “original” plan for Jerusalem from 1922, that is the capital of the Jewish National Home promised by the British?

    If the Jews had any inclination of limiting access to various holy sites, they would not have placed the temple mount under the administration of the Waqf after winning the 6-day war in the first place…they simply would have not permitted non-Jews free acess – which, incidentally, is what the Islamic Waqf is doing NOW.

    I find the site too culturally important to too many potentially adversarial groups to allow any members of any of those groups to have control over it. Frankly I don’t trust any singular government’s lasting ability not to be “screwed up”.
