耶路撒冷 (Jerusalem)

古今中外恐怕没有比耶路撒冷更加闻名遐迩的圣地了。这座位于亚欧非交叉点的城市是人类文明最早的定居点之一,自古以来各方势力你来我往争夺不休。两千多年前先知摩西带领犹太人从埃及来到这片应许之地,后代贤君大卫和索罗门在耶路撒冷建造了宏伟的圣殿以纪念犹太人和上帝间的纽带。公元前63年耶路撒冷落入罗马帝国控制之下,而基督教创始人耶稣便在此后不久登上历史舞台,于圣地周边四处传教,最终在耶路撒冷被罗马人捕获并钉死在十字架,却留下一座空墓。又过了几百年,伊斯兰教兴起,真主安拉行神迹将信使默罕默德一夜之间从麦加移动到耶路撒冷,默罕默德在此云霄登天,与真主订立了穆斯林一日五次礼拜的契约。尽管欧洲十字军在中世纪多次进攻耶路撒冷,近一千年来大多时候穆斯林势力都是这里的主人。第一次世界大战后,耶路撒冷成为大英帝国托管区,四散流落各地的犹太人也开始聚集在复国主义旗帜下重新移民来到这里,加上土著阿拉伯势力三方明争暗斗愈演愈烈。第二次世界大战后英国撤走,但围绕耶路撒冷的争夺从未平息,错综交织的主张和信仰至今仍在这里擦出激烈火花。
