East Jerusalem

East Jerusalem or Eastern Jerusalem is the sector of Jerusalem, occupied by Jordan during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, as opposed to the western sector of the city, West Jerusalem, occupied by Israel. Since the 1967 Arab–Israeli War, East Jerusalem has been, along with the rest of the West Bank, occupied by Israel; this area includes Jerusalem's Old City and some of the holiest sites of Judaism and Islam, such as the Temple Mount, Western Wall, Al-Aqsa Mosque, Dome of the Rock and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, as well as a number of adjacent neighbourhoods. Israeli and Palestinian definitions of it differ; the Palestinian official position is based on the 1949 Armistice Agreements, while the Israeli position is based on the current municipality boundaries of Jerusalem. These were determined by a series of administrative enlargements decided by Israeli municipal authorities since the June 1967 Six-Day War. Despite its name, East Jerusalem includes neighborhoods to the north and south of the Old City and, in the wider definition of the term on all these sides of West Jerusalem.

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, to be illegal under international law. Israel disputes this interpretation. During the 1948 Arab -- Israeli War, Jerusalem was contested between Israel. At the cessation of hostilities, the two countries secretly negotiated a division of the city, with the eastern sector coming under Jordanian rule; this arrangement was formalized in the Rhodes Agreement in March 1949. David Ben-Gurion presented his party's assertion that "Jewish Jerusalem is an organic, inseparable part of the State of Israel" in December 1949, the following year, Jordan annexed East Jerusalem; these decisions were confirmed in the Knesset in January 1950 and the Jordanian Parliament in April 1950. When occupied by Israel after the 1967 Six-Day War, East Jerusalem, with expanded borders, came under direct Israeli rule, according to Ian Lustick, never formally annexed. In a unanimous General Assembly resolution, the UN declared the measures trying to change the status of the city to be invalid.

In the Palestine Liberation Organization's Palestinian Declaration of Independence of 1988, Jerusalem is stated to be the capital of the State of Palestine. In 2000, the Palestinian Authority passed a law proclaiming Jerusalem as its capital, in October 2002, this law was approved by chairman Yasser Arafat. Since that time Israel has shut down all offices and NGO organisations connected to the PLO in East Jerusalem, saying that the Oslo Accords do not permit the Palestinian National Authority to operate in Jerusalem; the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation recognised East Jerusalem as capital of the State of Palestine on 13 December 2017. The annual number of building permits granted for construction in Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem have expanded by 60% since Donald Trump became US president in 2017. Since 1991, who make up the majority of the residents in East Jerusalem, have only received 30% of building permits. East Jerusalem is a term. Arabs use the term Arab Jerusalem for this area in official English-language documents, emphasizing the predominance of the Arabic-speaking Palestinian population and distinguishing it from the Hebrew-speaking parts of Jerusalem.

Israelis call the Arab-populated part of the city East Jerusalem because of its geographic location in the eastern part of the single larger Jerusalem city unit. The term East Jerusalem is ambiguous and may be used to refer to either of the following: From 1948 to 1967 it referred to the 6.4 km2 Jordanian-ruled part of the city the predominantly Arab business district, the Old City and surrounding neighborhoods. It may be applied to the area that Israel annexed and included in municipal Jerusalem following its occupation by Israel from Jordan in 1967, which lies north and south of the former East Jerusalem; this area includes an additional approximate 64 km2 of the West Bank, including territory which included 28 villages and areas of the Bethlehem and Beit Jala municipalities under Jordanian rule. The area of East Jerusalem has been inhabited since 5,000 BCE, with settlement beginning in the Chalcolithic period. Tombs are attested by the Early Bronze Age, around 3,200 BCE. In the late second millennium BCE Settlement concentrated around the City of David, chosen because of its proximity to the Gihon Spring.

Massive Canaanite constructions were undertaken, with a water channel excavated through rock drawing water to a pool inside the citadel, whose wall was a massive 23 feet thick, built from rocks some weighing up to 3 tons. In 1934, the British Mandatory authorities divided Jerusalem into 12 wards for electoral purposes; the mapping was criticized by those who believed it was drawn to ensure a Palestinian majority on the Jerusalem city council. The actual mapping suggests otherwise, according to Michael Dumper, who states that the peculiar "hook" on the western electoral borders was a gerrymander made to include as many new Jewish neighbourhoods on that side as possible, while keeping outside of the boundaries Arab villages. To the east, the city's border ended at the Old City walls, in order to exclude the contiguous Arab neighbourhood of Silwan, Ras al-Amud and At-Tur and Abu Tor; these boundaries defined the municipality down to 1948. By 1947 Palestinian Arabs constituted a majority overall in the Jerusalem district, but Jews predominated within the British municipal boundaries, 99,000 to 65,100 Arabs.

Hiatus (television)

In the United States, a hiatus is a break of several weeks, months or years in the normal broadcast programming of a television series. Such a break can occur part-way through the season of a series, in which case it is called a mid-season break, or between distinct television seasons. In the Northern Hemisphere, the breaks between late November and early February are referred to as winter breaks or, in the Christian cultural sphere, Christmas breaks; until the late 1990s, summer breaks were sometimes replaced by summer replacement series. Television stations implement a hiatus for their programs to split up a season so it will run longer until the next season; some programs go on hiatus so that their television networks can reserve episodes for airing during ratings sweeps, wherein networks compute their television advertising fees based on their programs' ratings during that period. Programs return from a hiatus in time for the sweeps period so as to generate high ratings, as such include special content in programming such as guest stars and unexpected plots or topics, extended episodes, finales.

Television programs tend to have a hiatus for the late-November, throughout December and early January holidays or the summer if the season does not end before, resuming at some point after, most mid-January in the case of Christmas and New Year, September in the case of the summer. In the USA, hiatuses may be common during the Major League Baseball playoffs in October, the Olympic Winter Games in February and various ceremonial awards in March; the mid-season break in the USA starts at Thanksgiving in late-November, sometimes ending with a Thanksgiving or Christmas episode, lasts until Super Bowl in late January and early February. The final episode airing before the Christmas break is referred to as the midseason finale, or in the northern hemisphere, "winter finale". At this time, other TV series may be launched. A network may put a show on hiatus before canceling it; this may be to evaluate the series' quality, warn the television producers in an effort to push them to produce a more profitable product, fill its timeslot with another program to compare ratings, or warn viewers that the show is not pulling its weight in ratings to see how the show performs in reruns before deciding whether or not it deserves another season.

A series may be put on hiatus for other reasons. The 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike forced several television series to go into un-planned hiatus and deferred the scheduled returns of other series such as 24 for an extended period. A show may go on hiatus in reaction to its content: The Pokémon anime was put on hiatus in Japan from December 17, 1997 until April 16, 1998 after the airing of an episode which caused 685 viewers to have seizures. A show may be put on hiatus due to personal issues with a cast member, or an illness or death: examples are the death of 8 Simple Rules actor John Ritter. Current US Shows on Hiatus or Discontinued
