Video: Jerusalem: The media myth of two cities

The history of Jerusalem did not start in 1967. Thousands of years of Jewish history took place in what is now called "Arab East Jerusalem."

Only when the Jewish residents were driven from their homes in 1948 was the city divided between East and West.

This video shows the reality of Jerusalem today and includes interviews from survivors of the fall of Jerusalem.

Let's go to the videotape.

Jerusalem has been better protected since 1967. We were in Jerusalem in summer, '06. We went to the Mount of Olives to look for the headstone of one of our family patiarchs, who escaped Kiev to Jerusalem in the 1890s. He died and was buried on the Mount of Olives in 1898. His family moved to the U.S. and we were the first decendents of that man ever to return to Israel, even to visit.

It was a Fail, because someone there told us that the graves from those years had been plowed through to make a road by the Jordanians, who were in charge of Jerusalem before 1967. That Facebook discussion group looks interesting. And I'm still in favor of a GIS title search map, layered by year, set up... online... with elevations, rocket launching ranges, etc... Because, from the Gaza disengagement, we've seen that anywhere the Jews vacate will be used to launch warcrime rockets onto Israeli civilians...

Since 1967, most, if not all the graves on the Mount of Olives have been found and their headstones have been restored. Were you in touch with the burial society while you were here? If not, you should be.

There are thousands of graves on teh Mount of Olives, and unless you really know where you are going, it is very difficult to find any of them.

Also, it should be noted that today there are guards on the Mount of Olives pretty much at all times due to Arab vandalism and assaults against people attempting to reach the graves.
