Abstract : Ensuring the protection of the various cultural identities at stake in the Old City of Jerusalem is a tricky issue given the importance of the site for the three represented monotheistic religions, the uncertain political status of the site, and the consequences that every event occurring in this symbolic city might have for the world as a whole.
