Discrimination in the heart of the holy cityA book by Meir Margalit
Published by the international peace and cooperation center

The following chapters will show various ways in which the Palestinians of East Jerusalem are discriminated against. These include building restrictions and house demolitions, which are employed as a means for keeping Palestinians away from the city; the method according to which the municipal budget is divided between east and west – shows to what extent discrimination is institutionalized and deliberate; and the new urban outline plan for East Jerusalem which seeks to strictly delimit the living space of its Palestinian population, and to perpetuate its inferior status. Also discussed in this book, the employment structure or pyramid that applies to the Palestinian population of East Jerusalem, which shows the type of jobs where they are employed and how the majority is concentrated on the lower layers of the employment pyramid. A concluding chapter analyzes the ideological motives and the organizational culture that stands behind the policies that discriminate against the Palestinian population of East Jerusalem.
