People of diverse ethnic backgrounds and faiths stroll freely in Jerusalem.

As Jerusalem celebrates 50 years as a united city, some seek to divide the Israeli capital. What do the people of Jerusalem, Jewish and Arab, have to say about it?

In exclusive on-street interviews with Arabs and Jews, it was apparent that most residents have a strong preference to keep Jerusalem united, with people of diverse faiths and ethnic backgrounds living together in harmony.

Polls also show that the majority of Arabs living in Jerusalem would prefer Israeli citizenship over a new Palestinian state.

Some residents recall how different the city was 50 years ago, before its reunification during the 1967 Six Day War.

Of course, those seeking to destroy the Jewish state have their own agenda.

Listen to what the peace-loving civilians say about Jerusalem.
