A new official visitor map of Jerusalem’s Old City features dozens of Jewish sites, while completely ignoring most Christian and Muslim landmarks. Despite criticism, the Israeli Tourism Ministry defended the map, describing it as “excellent.”
The map shows five Christian sites and only one Muslim site, the Dome of the Rock. For example, the Islamic world’s third-holiest site - the Temple Mount’s al-Aqsa Mosque - is not marked, although it is drawn on the map. Meanwhile 57 Jewish places of interest appear on the chart.
Critics are not convinced and argue that history is being rewritten.
