Israel insists that Jerusalem is now an Open City as a city occupied by the Israeli military and surrounded by a concrete wall and barbed wire, but since it has come under Israeli occupation since 1967, Jerusalem has become the most closed city in the world. Billions of people, mainly Arabs and Muslims and anyone who is a critic of Israel's brutal occupation and rejection of peace, are banned by the Israeli government from entering the city. Even Palestinians born in the city, Christian and Muslim, are denied the right to pray at their religious shrines and only armed settlers, who train their children to kill Arabs, are allowed free access to the Holy City.
