Today the United States moved their Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, in a gesture that to recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. What will be the impact of this change? This documentary produced by Deutsche Welle examines those who claim ownership of Jerusalem. Here’s the description from the YouTube video posted on 14 May 2018:

“This report talks to people on both sides of the conflict. For them Jerusalem is more than a political disagreement. The city is their home, a place of longing for Jews, Muslims and Christians alike. Our documentary joins travel guide Schmuel Kahn, who emigrated from Switzerland to Israel, on a tour through Jerusalem’s Old City, where the holiest sites of Judaism, Christianity and Islam exist side by side. Anthropologist Ali Qleibo, who is descended from an old Palestinian family, wonders how he would react if his daughter wanted to marry a Jewish man. Sarah from Hamburg, who has taken Israeli citizenship, makes a fervent appeal for a Jewish state. And musician Muhammad Mughrabi is convinced that only dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians can bring an ‘end of hatred’. This is a report about borders and competing claims to ownership, but also about hope and reconciliation.”
