In this book, author Moshe Amirav a world expert on the conflict in Jerusalem and a participant in political negotiations presents previously unrevealed facts and creative solutions for resolving the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Amirav's book Jerusalem Syndrome addresses disturbing questions, such as: How is it that after 40 years of Israeli efforts to unify Jerusalem it is still one of the most divided cities in the world? Why is it that no country, including the US, has recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel? Why has Israel failed in its efforts to curb the rapid growth of Jerusalem's Palestinian population, an increase that will lead to a Palestinian majority in the next decade? Israel's policies have failed to unite Jerusalem. Israeli and Palestinian strategies to gain control over East Jerusalem have not proved victorious, and the battle rages on locally and internationally with serious implications for stability in the Middle East. Amirav reveals the deep historical divisions within the Arab-Muslim camp over guardianship of Muslim holy places, and he provides a gripping account of the Camp David negotiations in 2000 which failed in part due to disagreement about sovereignty over Jerusalem's Holy Places. When interviewed at the time of the book's publication in Hebrew, Amirav stated: "We have to divide Jerusalem. We have to get rid of some of our syndromes, some of our dreams."

    A fascinating look at the urban,religious, and cultural issues surrounding the unification (or not) of Jerusalem following the 1967 War. As someone with a great deal of access to Jerusalem's (Israeli) municipal government, but displayed a lot of sympathy and knowledge about the Palestinian perspective as well - this was a really great resource in helping me understand what was going on before my eyes.
