This video [04:20] , published by i24NEWS, an Israeli international news channel based in Tel Aviv, portrays the deep social divisions among the diverse population in Jerusalem. The current  population is comprised of 38% Arabs and 62%, Jews, yet projections show that by 2040 the Arab population will increase to 44% Arabs and the Jewish population will decrease to 56%.
