Mission Statement (cache file)

"The American Committee on Jerusalem (ACJ) was founded to develop and promote educational activities and materials focused on Jerusalem, its heritage, and its future. Such activities in the past have generally been one-sided, offering the views exclusively of the Israeli government, and pro- Israeli groups in the United States. The ACJ will present an Arab-American consensus position on Jerusalem in clear and unambiguous terms, to provide the American public and policy-makers with a balanced view-point on the issues involved."
