Summary Radical Islam has long desired to seize Jerusalem and cut it off to Christian and Jewish believers. In this book, Israeli diplomat Dore Gold explains why the battle for Jerusalem is intensifying today. Gold shows why only Israel can preserve its holy places for Christians, Jews, and even Muslims, and why uncovering Jerusalem's past--and the truth of biblical history--can be the key to saving its future.--From publisher description.
