The author develops the idea of internationalization of Jerusalem, through the legitimacy that comes with the rulers of the cities that have taken place in history, beginning with the Jews, Byzantines, Romans, Muslims, Christians, British, and then again by the Jews. This legitimacy is analyzed in place of the Citadel of David, the prophet and the king, and the writer of Psalms, and the site of the Temple Mount. On these legendary locations different peoples alternate. The author points out how the Israelis eventually resume a national narrative of the Citadel of David, which is also manipulated in the same processing history of the museum within the Citadel itself.
