Who Owns Jerusalem? Bookmark and Share

This documentary by the German public broadcasting service DW explores whether U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has exacerbated the deep-rooted dispute between Israelis and Palestinians. Presenting multiple perspectives on the conflict, the 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. Following the film, Suheir Daoud, professor in the Department of Politics, and Alan Todd, lecturer in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, lead a discussion on the political and religious contexts of the film.
