This site calls on lovers of Jerusalem worldwide to support the residents of the city’s Abu Tor neighborhood in their campaign to save a historic hilltop from development.
Separated from Jerusalem’s Old City only by the Hinnom Valley — which gave us the word Gehenna – the hill has been part of the main Christian pilgrimage route for almost 1,000 years and is almost certainly the original Hill of Evil Counsel.
It is also deeply connected to the cultural heritage of Jews and Muslims.
Two overseas investors plan to build exclusive residential housing blocks for people who can afford the view.
