    Jerusalem today is a large metropolitan city, so it has the usual social, economic and political problems that big cities have. Add to that the constant threat of terrorist attacks, which requires a large police and military presence.

    The biggest issue at hand is the Palestinians' demand that East Jerusalem (which is mostly inhabited by Muslim and Christian Arabs) be given to them as a capital for their future state. Israel considers Jerusalem to be the eternal, undivided capital of the Jewish people, so both sides have very little room for compromise.

    Despite all that, Jerusalem is home to thousands of people, and attracts lots of tourists each year. It houses the Israeli Knesset (Parliament), and is Israel's capital.
