Christians all over the world will celebrate Easter this weekend, marking the moment they believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead after his crucifixion.

In Jerusalem, the city where Christ is said to have died, the number of his followers has fallen below 10,000.

Both Christians and Muslims say they are the victims of an Israeli policy designed to boost Jewish identity at their expense.

Al Jazeera’s Dominic Kane reports.
