Jerusalem: A City on Edge
It is widely perceived that Jerusalem has reached a dangerous boiling point of polarization and violence not seen since the end of the second intifada in 2005. A vicious cycle of violence is increasingly threatening the viability of a two-state solution which has been stoked by continued settlement construction. In a new report by WCLAC – Jerusalem: A City on Edge – these perceptions are graphically confirmed in the testimonies provided by women living in the city. Through the voices of women, a clear picture emerges of a community deliberately and systematically placed under enormous physical and psychological pressure by the prevailing authority with the apparent intention of making not only day-to-day life unbearable, but destroying any hope in a brighter future.
