The main argument to be articulated in this chapter is that after the 1967 war the location of the Hebrew University campus had a fundamental role in the Israelization of Jerusalem. Geographically, the campus marked the edge of the "unification” of the city post 1967 and produced a seemingly natural, historically based frontier that enabled the extensive development of Jewish neighborhoods on Palestinian expropriated land that linked Hebrew University to West Jerusalem’s city center. Thus, a new cognitive map of a "unified Jerusalem”-the Jewish capital-was produced.
