Summary: Jerusalem is a deeply divided city. Famously, the Old City has Muslim, Armenian, Jewish and Christian quarters - all separate and at often at loggerheads. The Jewish and Palestinian (Christian and Muslim) populations lead completely separate lives with different schools, shops, taxi companies, languages and newspapers. How has the city become so hopelessly divided and will it always be so? Is there a solution possible and what has been the fate of earlier attempts to reconcile the different communities? Bernard Wasserstein examines the often unhappy history of the Holy City - one of the most contentious places in the world.
