Arabs Move into Jewish Neighborhoods in Jerusalem – Dan Williams
(dailyalert.org, Dec. 10, 2014)

A growing number of Arabs are moving into Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem. Around Mount Scopus where the Hebrew University is based and many Palestinians study, about 16% of residents are either Arab citizens of Israel or Palestinians, according to Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics. Official figures from 2013 show 7.4% of residents of the French Hill neighborhood are Arabs, and Rawya Mazal, an Israeli Arab realtor, believes the true non-Jewish population is closer to 20%.

In Pisgat Ze’ev and Neve Yaacov, 1 to 2% of residents are now Israeli Arab or Palestinian, numbering several hundred families. Sabrine Jabber, 26, is a Muslim Arab who has spent half her life in Neve Yaakov. “My neighbors know me and I know them. We get on fine.”  (Reuters)
