As former Israeli ambassador, New York Times bestselling author, and Middle East expert Dore Gold explains in this stunning new book, [Jerusalem] has become central to the radical Islamists' apocalyptic vision of global jihad.  In The Fight for Jerusalem, Gold argues that if Jeursalem is to be a free city where all faiths can be practiced, it will have to remain under Israeli sovereignty, because the United Nations is untrustworthy and the increasingly radical Muslim Palestinians are looking to obliterate other faiths from Jerusalem, not tolerate them. 

With stunning clarity and deep scholarship, Gold reveals:

  • Why turning over part or all of Jerusalem to the Palestinians would be tantamount to turning it over to the Taliban

  • How Palestinians are destroying archaeological evidence of the ancient Jewish presence in Jerusalem, particularly on the Temple Mount

  • How Western diplomatic concessions feed wild apocalyptic speculations of radical Muslims -- and how the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza strengthened Palestinian extremists, not moderates

  • How radical Muslims are making common cause with biblical skeptics to deny Old Testament history -- and how the latest archaeological findings in Jerusalem confirm the historical truth of the Bilbe

  • How the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine didn't create a new right of the Jews to settle in Palestine -- it acknowledged their pre-existing right to do so

  • The role of radical Islam in the "intifada" against Israel

  •  Why any future negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority over the status of Jerusalem have very little chance of producing an agreement
