The questions raised in light of this assumption are: ''Would post-wall Jerusalem be a natural city in which it is possible to practice the right to city citizenship after it is transformed from a city in a state of conflict, urban fragmentation and geo-ethnic division into a city whose borders are an extension of the wall?” ; “What will be the nature of the urban networks that will evolve in the wake of the wall's construction ?”; and “Will that transformed situation deprive the Palestinians of ensuring international legitimization for Jerusalem as the capital of their independent state?''
The assumption this article seeks to address evolves around the potential of the wall to discredit the idea of the open and stable city, an idea that is advanced by numerous visions for the future of Jerusalem.
