The chairs of the Round Table gather around five questions the views of ten representatives of Israelis and Palestinians. The topics include the (nevralgic) role of Jerusalem, its boundaries, its being united or divided, the effects of the construction of the wall, the images of the future of Jerusalem. The answers, while stressing the starting perspectives of the respondents, recognize the greatness of Jerusalem, but negatively read the current situation. On the images of the future of Jerusalem responses are more positive, and range from an open city, two capital cities for two states without physical boundaries between them, and a city divided between Palestinians and Israelis all the way to a future state for two nations where learning to live together.
