Jerusalem, c. 1932

Here we have some views of Jerusalem seldom seen today.

One could wonder: Where do all the people come from? How is it there are so many Arabs there?

Stills here.

I'm thinking it is to be explained by more than that, by something like this:

Therein lies the ideological warfare concerning claims to territorial inheritance and national sovereignty. Contrary to McCarthy's findings or wishes, there is every reason to believe that consequential immigration of Arabs into and within Palestine occurred during the Ottoman and British mandatory periods. Among the most compelling arguments in support of such immigration is the universally acknowledged and practiced linkage between regional economic disparities and migratory impulses.
