Imagining Zion

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the Six-Day War of June 5 through 10, 1967 and how it both deepened and transformed the strategies employed in developing Jerusalem. There was always resentment over Jordan's noncompliance with the armistice agreement that had promised access to the Israeli enclave on Mount Scopus, where the Hadassah Hospital and the original campus of the Hebrew University were located. Israelis were also bitter about the fact that Arabs had abused Jewish property and institutions, such as the ancient cemetery on the Mount of Olives, whose monument stones they used in construction or otherwise desecrated. However, the public did not demand conquest of the Arab part of Jerusalem or of the captured Jewish Quarter in the Old City. An apparent fait accompli had been created since 1948. Jerusalem was a divided city, and there was no open policy of irredentism.
