IN THE GHETTO:

High Court raps Jerusalem over postal inequality for Arabs (ELHANAN MILLER January 20, 2015, Times of Israel)

According to data provided by ACRI, only eight post offices function in Jerusalem's Arab neighborhoods, serving a population of over 300,000. Meanwhile, West Jerusalem's Jewish population of 530,000 is serviced by 44 post offices.

With street names and addresses being introduced to most of Arab neighborhoods only recently, just 11 postal workers currently deliver mail in the areas in question.

Mail is often deposited at the doorstep of local mosques or grocery stores, or in some 8,000 post office boxes. About 45,000 households have no access to the service.
