Jerusalem Day Parade?

Does this city seem re-unified to you?

From Ynet:

Violent clashes erupt during Jerusalem Day parade

Traditional 'Flag Dance' procession commemorating Jerusalem's reunification becomes scene of violent clashes between marchers and Arab residents of capital's eastern neighborhoods. Several rioters detained by police.

    From Haaretz earlier today:
    On Tuesday, Netanyahu reiterated his declaration that Jerusalem would never be divided, emphasizing the Jewish people's longstanding historical connection to the city.

    Netanyahu used a play on words of a 2,000-year-old Jewish prayer yearning for a return to Jerusalem, saying "next year in a more built up Jerusalem," alluding to his intention to build more homes in Jerusalem, despite contention with Palestinians on the matter.
