The Israeli government is launching a new plan to “defend Jerusalem in the international arena,” Jerusalem and Heritage Minister Ze’ev Elkin announced Monday.
Addressing a conference for Christian journalists in the capital, Elkin said Jerusalem was under “an unprecedented assault,” pointing to recent resolutions passed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) that ignored the Jewish people’s link to the city.
Together with the Foreign Ministry, Elkin said his office was committed to “prepare, budget and lead” a project to defend Jerusalem from various historical distortions.
“The plan will include visits to Jerusalem of influencers from diverse fields and nations, who will be exposed directly to the past and present of this wondrous city, and will be able to take part in the holy task of defending its future,” he said.
Established in January 2001, One Jerusalem is a strong, broad-spanning, non-profit, educational foundation committed to preserving a united Jerusalem, under 100% Israeli sovereignty. Jerusalem stands as the exclusive capital of the state of Israel, and only the Israeli government will protect and maintain access to the holy sites for members of all three major religions as well as others. One Jerusalem is a USA 501(c)(3) organization, and does not accept government funding of any kind.
