There is no other piece of real estate anywhere else on the face of the earth that is so disputed and so coveted as Jerusalem. Every day, Israel and Jerusalem are under assault by political forces, by terrorists, by neighboring
Arab states and by others who seek to cause us harm. Right now, that attack is not a mass invasion by the armies of Israel’s enemies. Today it is a quiet, but relentless battle for Israel's very existence. Without some effective response, they are a perilous and even deadly threat to the future of Israel’s capital. Indeed, Jerusalem is in danger. “I have set guardians upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, they shall never hold their peace day nor night” (Isaiah 62:6).
Defend Jerusalem team is part of international network of lawyers and legal activists who are acting globally to safeguard the state of Israel and defend Jerusalem. We are the people with the training, skills, experience, and passion to fight and win this battle. We intend to continue our legal campaign in the courtrooms around the world, and especially in Israel, to defend the Jewish people’s right:
• to maintain Jerusalem as our capital
• to protect Israel’s ancient heritage in the city
• and to safeguard the holy places from being appropriated by the Islamic world.
