Christian, Jewish and Muslim youth from Jerusalem take a stand in the Old City

Jerusalem’s Old City was filled with police on Friday as part of a surge following last week’s violence in the capital and the West Bank.

Numerous young Arab men were stopped and frisked around Damascus Gate as Muslims made their way through crowded streets for afternoon prayer. Yet, among the tense atmosphere, a group of around 80 Christian, Jewish and Muslim youth – almost all from Jerusalem – toured the perimeter of the Old City, hoping to display the possibility of a truly shared city.
