It is not clear whether Israeli prime minister’s portrayal of the latest violence as the battle of Jerusalem was a description of what was happening or an electoral wish. Whatever the case, the results of the “battle of Jerusalem”, if it is that, will certainly be different from what Israelis predict.
One of the first indications that Jerusalem is different is the personalization of the victims Everyone has a name and the names are given prominence.
More than 2,000 Palestinians were killed in the Israeli war on Gaza, but we know very little about them. In Jerusalem, however, the names of both Palestinians and Israelis who are killed are given much more prominence in media coverage and public discussions.
