Jerusalemites love divided hometown


Most Jerusalemites are proud of their city, a poll found.

According to the survey commissioned by Yerushalayim magazine ahead of this week’s 40th anniversary of the city’s reunification in the Six-Day War, just 36 percent of residents believe Jerusalem is truly united, while 62 percent say it’s not, citing divisions between Jews and Arabs and religious and secular residents.

But 85 percent of Jerusalemites express pride in the city, compared to 13 percent who don’t, according to the poll, which had 400 respondents.
