Islam's third holiest city
The capital of Israel, in the east-central part of the country. King David made Jerusalem the capital of Israel 3,000 years ago, and the city has played a central role in Jewish existence ever since. The Western Wall inside the Old City of Jerusalem is the part of the Temple Mount on which the ancient Temple stood, and is the holiest site in Judaism. According to Islam, the prophet Muhammad was miraculously transported from Mecca to Jerusalem, and it was from there that he made his ascent to heaven. The city is considered the third holiest place in Islam after Mecca and Medina. For Christians, Jerusalem is the place where Jesus lived, preached, died and was resurrected. Under Israel, all religions have freedom of religion and all holy sites are protected.

The historic capital of Israel, Jerusalem is home to holy places of Jews, Christians and Muslims. The 1947 United Nations Partition plan for Palestine designated Jerusalem as an international city, but after Israel's War of Independence in 1948, Israel was left in control of western Jerusalem and Jordan in control of eastern Jerusalem, including the Old City. For 19 years Jews were prohibited from visiting the Western Wall, the holiest site in Judaism. Eastern Jerusalem was captured during the 1967 War, the city was reunited, restored and declared the official capital of the State of Israel. Under Israeli rule since 1967, Jerusalem's holy sites have remained open to all faiths and nationalities. The Israel-PLO Declaration of Principles of September 13, 1993, stipulates that discussion of sovereignty over Jerusalem be left for the "final-status" talks.
The city where Jesus was crucified. It was not only the center of world Jewry but was a great cosmopolitan city some four miles in circumference and surrounded by a high wall with more than one hundred towers. It depended for its prosperity largely on the great numbers of pilgrims who "went up to Jerusalem" for the major festivals of the Jews. It is estimated that at the annual Passover festival the city accomodated as many as a million visitors.

the heart of the Promised Land, originally it meant "city of wholeness" or "city of peace"
(Hebrew: Yerushalayim) The capital of Israel since it was taken from the Jebusites by King David (2 Samuel 5:6-10)
Hebrew Yerushalaim or Yerushalayim, possibly meaning â€œFoundation/City of Peaceâ€. The earlier name of the city was apparently Shalem (Genesis 14:18). Abraham had renamed the site at Moriah (Gen 22:2; 2Chr 3:1) as â€œYHWH Yirehâ€ (Gen 22:14), when a substitute sacrifice for his son Isaac was provided, being caught in a thicket. In the conjunction of Yireh with Shalem the weak consonants disappeared to form Yerushalem. The name Yireh usually means â€œwill seeâ€, but is later suggested as â€œwill provideâ€, when Abraham answered Isaac that â€œGod will provide (Yireh) himself a lambâ€ (Gen 22:8). Thus the LORD of vision is the LORD of provision. The substitute sacrifice, with a thicket over his head, was to be the Messiah (Isa 53:10; Mt 27:29). Capital city of all Israel since the time of king David ca. 1000 BCE.
