Jerusalem Arab residents contest highway route

In this Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013 photo, the construction site of route 4 is seen in the Arab neighborhood of Beit Safafa in Jerusalem. A new Israeli highway project is threatening to upset Jerusalem’s delicate ethnic balance by cutting through the heart of a quiet, upscale Arab neighborhood in order to link a large bloc of West Bank settlements to the city.
