Jerusalem has long been in a "tough neighborhood", having to serve not only as the capital of both a historical and a contemporary Jewish state, but also in need of providing a means to survive a siege. Tunnels were used as water conduits and storage, as place of refuge, as a means of travel in the Temple area. These were able to be excavated only after Jerusalem was re-united in 1967 after from illegal Jordanian rule following the separation of the city per the 1948 war of Israeli Independence. Appreciate its history and that it is part of a more than 2000 year Jewish presence - regardless of Moslem protestations to the contrary.
