Jerusalem/Israel: apple of discord in the world - the eyeball of God
Already in the 19th century BC the city is mentioned in Egyptian texts. Around 1000 B.C. King Solomon built the Temple of Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a central focus in world history and the history of religion. For Judaism and Christianity the capital of Israel is the most important city. The Palestinians have also made Jerusalem their capital.

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem," the Bible asks (Psalm 122:6)
Prayer sets a counterpoint to the numerous politically, economically or religiously motivated activities for or against the country or the people of Israel. Prayer brings an additional dimension to circumstances, namely the trust in God's work, which goes far beyond human reason and ability. God's intentions, His plan of salvation for Jerusalem, Israel and for the world should become reality.
The association Jerusalem Prayer Switzerland is anxious, in addition to the information reported in the daily press, to pass on a view of events in Israel and Jerusalem which is shaped by the Jewish-Christian view of man and the biblical message. It must be possible to criticize the people and politics of Israel; but nothing should be demanded of Israel that is not demanded of other states. Israel plays an important role in world politics; Switzerland's official position concerns us all.

Israel: good, wide land,
in which milk and honey flow

And the LORD said, "Thus I came down to deliver it out of the hand of Egypt, and to bring it up out of that land into a land of beauty and breadth, into a land flowing with milk and honey" Exodus 3:8a
