Jerusalem: A rock and a hard place

What is it like to live in a divided city? The Take explores Al Jazeera's new documentary about the Holy City and those who call it home.

    A Muslim scholar and a Christian Palestinian researcher. A proud Zionist and an ex-settler.

    In this week's episode, the filmmaker behind Al Jazeera's new documentary, Jerusalem: A rock and a hard place, guides us through the Holy City to meet the people who call it home.

    We hear their arguments about the past, their concerns about the present and their vastly different ideas about what the future should look like.
