ROLE OF THE RELIGIOUS ELEMENT IN THE US POLICY TOWARDS JERUSALEM DILEMMA 1967-2000

Abstract

The study aimed at rooting the relation between Jewish and Christianity to prove the importance and role of the religious element in forming and directing the US policy towards Jerusalem issue. This is in addition to the impact of this element on US community values and beliefs; which genuinely believes that Jewish return to Palestine is the necessary pre-step for the return of the anticipated Jesus (Masseih). Besides, there are many similarities between establishing both the US homeland and Israel since both depends on invading others’ lands and evacuating the original people from their land alleging the spiritual right and settling on Promised Land. Pursuing the approaches of successive US administrations, during the research period, the study concluded that USA presidents and their administrations, based on greatly religious beliefs, had prevented the issuance of many international resolutions condemning the Israeli occupation of east Jerusalem and requiring withdrawal. They sought to end UN role in solving Jerusalem issue and leaving power balances to be the main determiner of Palestinian -Israeli negations’ results concerning Jerusalem future. These balances are unfair as they bias to the American –supported Israeliparty.
