Nir Barkat explains about Jerusalem

Nir Barkat, Mayor of Jerusalem was interviewed last Friday on the BBC program “Hardtalk with Tim Franks”

Predictably, the questions were pointed and tough but Birkat did very well, and was forthright in his defending of a united Jerusalem as part of Israel.

The interview here is well worth listening to.  A united Jerusalem will have its challenges but the dangers of a split are very clear.

Michael Totten has also written a thoughtful article, predominantly about Jerusalem, in which he discusses the increasing number of Jerusalem Arabs taking up Israeli citizenship.
