In 1948 the western part of Jerusalem, capital city of Palestine, was capturedby zionists; in 1967 the eastern part was taken into Israeli occupation. Sincethen Israel has pursued "Jewish demographic superiority" in Jerusalem,as elsewhere, driving out Muslims and Christians and denying their history,identity, and land rights. This film includes interviews with Palestinianpeople, Israeli settlers, and human rights activists. Freda Hughes of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign will introduce the film.
