Watch Mediterranean Tales online: Episode 9 Jerusalem

Irma meets Batya Gur, the Israeli thriller writer who sets her novels in Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and also hears the other side of the Jerusalem experience from Liana Badr, a Jerusalem-born Palestinian writer. With Irma, she returns to the childhood home she was forced to flee during the Six-Day War. Following in Mark Twains footsteps, Irma visits the Dead Sea and tracks down the hotel he stayed at in Jerusalem. She takes a tour of the old city with guide Ali Mohammed Jiddah, a Palestinian who spent 17 years in prison for his bombing of Jerusalem, and together they visit the famous Via Dolorosa. In a city holy to several religions, Irma visits the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the most sacred Christian site in the world, and the famed Wailing Wall. Reverting to her day job as an agony aunt, Irma exchanges professional tips with Ruthie Blum (agony aunt of the Jerusalem Post) to discuss the everyday woes of a city whose political problems are so often major world news.
