From the International Center for Terrorism Studies (ICTS) at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies:

A Special Seminar on

"Jerusalem: Outlook for War or Peace?"

December 21, 2015

Is the latest escalating tension and violence in Jerusalem threatening to ignite a religious war in the Middle East and beyond?

And yet, can the spirit of the “sacred city” for Judaism, Islam, and Christianity encourage building a foundation for a lasting peace in the “Holy Land”? 

These and related issues, including the historical, political, legal, and strategic context of Jerusalem, were discussed by scholars and diplomats from the region.
