'We Go Back 800 Years': Palestinian Fights Settler NGO's Takeover of Jerusalem Hotel

Abu-Walid Dajani, 75, is embarking on what he calls the battle of his life: To prevent the Imperial Hotel from being closed down and taken over by the Ateret Cohanim organization that runs a yeshiva and settles Jews in the Old City and East Jerusalem.

The walls of the Old City of Jerusalem can be seen through the window of Dajani’s office in the Imperial, they seem almost close enough to touch. The office walls bear pictures of former Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser and a young Jordanian King Hussein, together with family pictures going back a century. The hotel is located in a vast, grand building on Omar Ibn al-Khattab Square, by the Old City’s Jaffa Gate.
