Is Mayor Nir Barkat aiming to divide Jerusalem? As astonishing as it may sound, the answer is, apparently, yes.

No, Barkat is not promoting a new “peace plan” to redivide the city into two separated parts between Israel and the Palestinians, but rather implementing an idea that has been in the air since the days of legendary mayor Teddy Kollek – to draw a separation line between the pluralistic population and the haredi sector.
