    "Ateret Cohanim's stated goal is to enter areas inhabited only by Arabs so as to prevent the city's partition." The city is already partitioned although, unlike in the West bank, the partition is made of signs, not concrete barriers. Try to get a Jerusalem Egged bus or a Jewish-run taxi to drive east past the Damascus Gate. No way, José. East Jerusalem has green service taxis for their part of town (no buses) with destinations marked in Arabic. Jewish passengers don't use them not because they may not, but because they dare not. Who is Ateret Cohanim kidding? Only themselves and the settlers. The Government continues to profit from the mirages of people who buy into this fantasy at our peril.
