Bisan Abou Gharbiyeh

Jerusalem, Al Quds, Yerushalaym

After years of observing the media, one might conclude that the West Bank and Gaza Strip are Palestinian areas and the rest, including Jerusalem, is Israeli. For the untrained eye there seems to be nothing wrong with such image constructions. It is no wonder that viewers internationally do not know any better. However a more in-depth look tells us otherwise. Bisan Abou Gharbiyeh explains that a virtual reality is being created which is completely contradictory to the actual reality on the ground, in particular when it comes to Jerusalem and the status of its¬†inhabitants.
