The article focuses on the developments in the Arab-Israeli dispute over the territorial claim on Jerusalem. One of the reasons of the dispute is the moral and religious significance of Jerusalem to both parties. Muslims believe that Muhammad had his greatest revelation in Jerusalem while the tomb of Jesus Christ, also found in the city, is important to Israelis. The conflict in Jerusalem has received very little media attention.
