Editor’s Note: This installment of “Keeping Jerusalem” was written by Hillel Fendel. Chaim Silberstein, the usual co-author of the column, was a featured speaker at the International Jerusalem Alliance event.
Many Jews and Israelis also participated in the 2011 Basel Conference, and among the speakers was Chaim Silberstein, founder and president of Keep Jerusalem– Im Eshkachech (and in most cases the co-author of this column). His presentation included the grave scenario that would likely develop were a Palestinian state to be established in Judea and Samaria. He concentrated, however, on the severe implications of a divided Jerusalem.

Hillel Fendel, past senior editor at Israel National News/Arutz-7, continues to write and edit.He resides in Beit El.
