Jerusalem has long been disputed territory, with Jews, Christians and Muslims all laying claim to it as holy land. For that very reason, the initial United Nation’s plan to create Israel and Palestine designated Jerusalem as a neutral “international zone.” National Geographic’s IMAX movie “Jerusalem” gives background to understand these competing religious claims.
