Where is it worse to be Palestinian?

The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) says that

    The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) has a new report entitled "Unsafe Space. The Israeli Authorities' Failure to Protect Human Rights amid Settlements in East Jerusalem".

    The short version: Palestinian residents of Jerusalem, especially the Old City, are increasingly subject to hostility and violence because authorities are joining political extremists in attempts to “Judaize” Palestinian areas.

    The group's attorney Nisreen Alyan says:

    Human rights in Silwan, Sheikh Jarrah and other neighbourhoods of East Jerusalem are at an all-time low as a result of the authorities' policy to side with settler groups. The level of tension and violence is on the rise, but the police are not providing Palestinians with the protection they need and deserve.

    The report leads Amira Hass of Haaretz to wonder, "Jerusalem or Gaza where is it worse to be Palestinian?"
