Jerusalem A Nationalist Flashpoint

Tensions are heightened in the city of Jerusalem, with a rare convergence of religious occasions over the weekend leading to confrontations between Palestinians and Israeli security forces in recent days. Middle East expert Dr. James Dorsey breaks down the causes and implications of the uptick in violence, and what this could mean for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Image credit: EPA-EFE
