Israel Matters Position Statement

Israel Matters Position Statement

1. Israel is one of the most vibrant democracies in the world. Israelis should be able to choose their own government without interference from outside organizations and governments.

2. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel. 

3. Judea and Samaria are the ancestral homeland of the Jewish people. The Jewish communities of Area C are part of sovereign Israel. 

4. While we hope and pray for peace, we do not believe that Israel should return to the 1949 Armistice Lines (also known as the June 4, 1967 lines). 

5. The Golan Heights are an integral part of Israel. 

6. Jews, Christians, and Muslims should have equal access to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

7. Israel must be able to defend itself. We support the soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces.
