VIDEO: Jerusalem – The Media Myth of Two CitiesMay 18, 2011 13:55 by Simon Plosker
How the media report on Jerusalem has a tremendous impact on public policy. The Palestinian Authority is claiming that Jerusalem — including the Old City — will be “restored” to Arab control as capital of their new state.
The media stubbornly clings to the notion that there are two separate cities of Jerusalem, East and West, and that the eastern half, including the Western Wall in the Old City, lacks Jewish legitimacy.
HonestReporting investigates the issue, including interviews with Jewish refugees from 1948.
