There has been a Jewish presence in Jerusalem for 3,000 years and a Jewish majority since at least 1844.
Since Israel united Jerusalem in 1967, the Arab population has quadrupled, and Jerusalem has become an open international city embracing all religions.

Jerusalem was never the capital of any other nation in history except for the Jews.
During Jordanian rule over Jerusalem (1948 – 1967) the city was gravely neglected and closed to Jews and Christians. Today, the city flourishes and is open to all religions.

Jerusalem never appears even once in the Koran. The prophet of Islam never once visited Jerusalem. There is only a Moslem legend that claims that Mohammed was brought to Jerusalem in the dark of night by the angel Gabriel.
