    Many Arabs living in Jerusalem thrive. It is noticeable that most of the staff in the hotels in Jerusalem are Arabs. Most of the taxi drivers in Jerusalem are also Arabs. Many non-Arab Jerusalem residents get their dentistry done in Shaikh Jarrah and have their vehicles repaired in Abu Gosh. Yes there is some poverty in Jerusalem, and sadly there are Jewish as well as Arab Jerusalemites , who are reliant on the state and/or on soup kitchens for their survival. It is true that the people of Gaza get much more aid, but they also have to live under the oppressive regime of Hamas. For those who support Fatah, or are gay or just like to display their affection for their partner, or wear what westerners consider to be normal beachwear for youth, that is not a pleasant way to live.
