Abstract

Jerusalem is one of the world’s oldest cities and is considered as the center of the World. The city is considered holy in three great divine religions. “Many things that are sacred to Judaism and Christianity, is based in most of the sacred and common holiness of Jerusalem to Islam”. Coexistence of different religious groups in the city, causes the fight to ensure the domination. Core reason of inability for sharing Jerusalem: Christian, Jewish and Muslim neighbourhoods and they can not be distinguished sharply from each other sanctuary. While the aforementioned three religions basically take peace and reconciliation as a basis, Jerusalem has become a center of war, blood and suffering throughout its history. No culture or religion could achieve complete control. This situation causes that the important sacred religious heritages of the three religions remain under threat. And even when dominance has been achieved for a while, the threat continues. The powerful ones will not respect for the sacred values of others. The city is considered as one of the city’s in World heritages in danger by UNESCO and being in this status is not sufficient for the protection of this most important holy city in the World. Ensuring and sustaining absolute peace for Jerusalem is required. Jerusalem must be a city of peace. This can be achieved with common sense and an integrated management. In this study, it is emphasized that Jerusalem can be the center of the world peace and an integrated management model is proposed.
