Title: Spatial Transformation of Jerusalem: 1967 to Present
Authors: Thawaba, Salem
Al-Rimmawi, Hussein
Issue Date: Feb-2013
Publisher: ResearchGate
Abstract: This article investigates the spatial transformation of the holy city of Jerusalem from 1967 to present. Since the middle of nineteenth century, new foreign Jewish and other immigrants played a great role in changing the traditional landscape of this holy city. At present, this holy city is being transformed into segregated neighborhoods. New mega urban projects are being constructed regardless of the holiness of the place, in order to change its identity as well as its demographic balance. Only just and lasting peace between Palestinians and Israelis is the only guarantee to keep Jerusalem’s traditional landscape in place and at the same it may be modernized
