Violence erupted yesterday on the eastern side of Jerusalem.
Riots took place in the Palestinian village of Silwan and on and around the Temple Mount.
The picture above (taken on a quieter day) is from inside Silwan, looking toward the Temple Mount which is just behind the Old City wall.
Some 40,000 Palestinians live in Silwan, on both sides of the valley.
This photo is taken from the City of David excavations.
Since the 1990s several hundred Jewish settlers have moved in, renovating or building new houses like the ones seen in the pictures above and below.
Over the last four years I have tried to educate myself by taking three tours in Silwan, guided by guides from opposing ends of the political spectrum, from Elad/Ir David to Emek Shaveh to Ir Amim.
The only tour where you actually talk to and listen to the Arab residents of Silwan, in this protest tent, is the one led by the Alternative-Archaeology archaelogists of Emek Shaveh.
Unfortunately for this blog, but luckily for me, I was not in the fires and the blood of the riots yesterday.
I can only direct you to media reports with slideshows that you can click through:
