The Check-in: What Happens in Jerusalem Doesn't Stay in Jerusalem

The Telos Channel

Apr 15 2023 • 45 mins

Last week, Israeli forces stormed Al-Aqsa mosque, beating those inside and arresting hundreds of Palestinians worshipers. In an echo of 2021, it appeared that the convergence of Ramadan, Passover, and Easter in the holy city would spark another escalation as rockets and bombs lighted the skies above Israel's borders and the Gaza Strip. In this episode, we detail the events and offer the necessary context often missing from mainstream sources, and we predict where we might be headed from here.

While it appears that a larger escalation has been avoided for now, the underlying violence of the moment rages on. We unpack how to see it, and what’s problematic about the narrative that “tensions will flare” when the holy days of Ramadan, Easter, and Passover converge in the Holy Land. And we offer tangible next steps we as international observers can do to support lasting, just peace in this moment.
