on since jerusalem it is a holy city to all 3 major abrahamic religions jews muslims and christians have co-existed within its walls for centuries but it is only the jews who lay claim to it as their exclusive capital and that is a position that's been given added force since donald trump came to power in the united states and in the face of international law recognize the city as israel's capital as well as announcing he would relocate the u.s. embassy there from tel aviv and in recent decades israeli settlements have been springing up in east jerusalem previously recognized as palestinian it is a process that has been developing for many decades but in 2009 jackie rowland went to the front line of what can only be described as a battle for the right to live in a city that is the beating heart of the holy land from 2009 this is holy land grab . jerusalem the photo that dreamt about washington for hundreds of years. the most recent conqueror was israel it's
12:25 pm
captured the eastern part of the city in 1967 bringing the whole of jerusalem under its control in defiance of international law. since then israel has been working with determination to weild the 2 parts of the city into its eternal indivisible capital by building houses for jews and destroying houses in the meantime our ups. israel's project isn't nearly complete within a year or 2 if no one intervenes the invisible line dividing jerusalem into jewish and arab parts will be erased. the palestinian village of city one clings to a steep hill side
12:26 pm
a single voice of the old city in the valley below lies al gore style neighborhood it's a setting resonant with meeting for muslims christians and jews. that will stand a boat is situated in the most important one of the most important areas in jerusalem right next to the walls of the intensity situated wide where the temple mount is is observed very very closely so it is one of the most important areas in journalism and maybe maybe in the entire war so the israeli authorities have plans for a woodstock they say the houses in these narrow alleyways were built without permits they want to flatten the whole neighborhood and tun it into open parkland 6. it's a tourist development plan that would wreck the lives of an entire palestinian community the municipality has slapped. you know what is on 88 houses which would
12:27 pm
make 1500 people homeless. or her or her. mom is one of them he's the local him and he lives with his wife and children in a street proudly decorated with c.d.'s from the old city. in the local 1000000000 age with donovan in the middle in a thought of peace. and the. thought. of will that annoy them little bit of the we are merely because you're on the other can't move or this mean well you know you can live for me i thought i mean me and shaking. a little house well. for us yet the. saw the neighborhood is changing dotted around the hillside houses away
12:28 pm
jewish settlers have moved in they built extra rooms sometimes extra floors but the chef doesn't recall any of these houses being demolished. at the same time a battle for historical the chitta missy is on the way archaeologists digging at several sites in east jerusalem with a clear political agenda to uncover evidence of ancient jewish life that would strengthen israel's claim to the whole city we haven't been allowed to go in and film what you think that is where this character arises in this present stage of archaeology here and see which is archaeology behind fences and it seems they want to keep things under wraps to prevent people from from hearing it and what about you have you been able to get inside i can't get into any of these sites bird from visiting that it seems that the antiquities authority doesn't want criticism like a sort of her work. one reason for that the antiquities authority which is
12:29 pm
a state body has handed over some of the sites to a private organization called an ad which is run by israeli settlers. and lerma who runs the national or has taken the interpretation associating with fragmentary names with him very very has made it a corner so very tired protesting the site so that really history for them begins with and when in fact archaeological remains can be directly associated with very bitter almost nonexistent. so there's a definite conflict of interest there between their role as stewards of the ancient heritage and their role as surplus and as people who want to actually dispossessed the palestinians and see the world meet one such settler area a king. armed only with a motor scooter and a crash helmet he wants to evict palestinians from east jerusalem and replace them with jewish families he's on
12:30 pm
a crusade to extend jewish ownership over the whole of the city. if i would compare it to an onion if we haven't the onion the. heart and this is the temple mount this is the city we are trying to put a layer of more live in order to protect the heart of the onion because it was a time when we know what is happening when you try to cut the onion usually feel in your eyes and our aim is to not to get to this situation of. 2 after you because somebody is trying to cut. the layers he's talking about a jewish settlements in sin one in the mount of olives and in russian a mood. israel is gradually connecting the settlements and the archaeological parks to form a belt around the old city danny suydam and is a lawyer who keeps
12:31 pm
a close watch on the settlements he's come to look at some apartments for jews that have been built in the palestinian neighborhood of job and. now there are as a rule 2 kinds of settlements in east jerusalem one kind are the settlements sponsored by the government and the the other kind of settlements are ideologically motivated messianic settlements and you can see that there's one like that you see that really. knowing the difference between just because he stopped for what was it was a mask and now we have a republic over here. it is like a child's coloring book connect the dots and connecting the dots is basically the and circle meant of the old city by a ring of settlements and a settler unformed narrative in the public domain. is worried the people from the
12:32 pm
