In Jerusalem, an ultra-nationalist Jewish group called Lehava has been organising patrols aimed at stopping Jewish Israelis from even talking to Arabs. As tensions between Israelis and Palestinians remain high amid spiralling violence, relations between the two communities have become more strained.
Each side views the other with suspicion and hostility, a mood often visible on the streets. Lehava says it wants to protect Jewish identity - but Left-leaning Israelis monitoring it have condemned Lehava as racist and violent.
