Jerusalem: The Media Myth of Two Cities

Filed under: politics — edge of the sandbox @ 2:18 pm

CiF Watch has great post with an Honest Reporting video on East Jerusalem. To call the Eastern part of that great city “Arab East Jerusalem” is to give legitimacy to the Jordanian conquest of the land in Israel’s Independence War.

UK Media Watch

As HonestReporting observed:

“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 [by Jordanian forces] was the city divided between East and West.”

This HR video shows the reality of Jerusalem, which today is celebrating 45 years of reunification.
