The old saying that you can't fight City Hall has been turned on its head in this divided and tense capital of religious and political extremes. Teddy Kollek, perhaps the world's best known mayor, is finding that his own City Hall can't fight. Kollek, one of the last grand figures of Zionism, clings to a vision of a united city of disparate groups living in separate but equal communities in mutual respect.

The newly elected right-wing mayor of Jerusalem said Wednesday that he will encourage such heavy building across the line between the Arab and Jewish sides of the city that no peace negotiators will ever be able to divide it. "A mayor does have an influence on the infrastructure of the city. He can build the city, he can build in different parts of it, he can rezone and so on," Mayor-elect Ehud Olmert said.

"There's the Mayor ," someone whispered with a tone of respect. Across the lawn at Norman Lear's house, holding court with some of Hollywood's power elite, stood Teddy Kollek, the 82-year-old six-term mayor of Jerusalem, his city's master-builder, symbol of coexistence between Jews and Arabs, and someone who knows about power and infighting.

A secret, first meeting between Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek and Palestinian activist leader Faisal Husseini was disclosed here Friday. The two men held a cordial discussion Monday under the auspices of a Hebrew-language Jerusalem weekly, on condition that the meeting not be made public immediately. Their conversation was published Friday. Both Kollek and Husseini stressed that the conversation was in no way a "negotiation," but both had proposals to make on touchy Israeli-Palestinian issues.

"Mr. Jerusalem" for more than a quarter of a century, Mayor Teddy Kollek is now proving to be "Mr. Indispensable." Kollek, who will be 82 in May, had expected to slip into retirement at the end of last year, advising his successor on how to manage his treasured city but slowing his pace after 60 years of helping to build modern Israel.

JERUSALEM -- Government officials in Australia vowed Wednesday to investigate the secret detention and mysterious death of a Jewish Australian immigrant who was found hanged to death in a high-security Israeli prison cell in 2010. Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr said he would review his department's handling of the arrest and death of Ben Zygier, 34, who had immigrated to Israel and was suspected of working for Israel's spy agency, Mossad. For unknown reasons, Zygier was arrested by Israeli security officials in 2010, perhaps after running afoul of Mossad, according to a report aired Tuesday by Australian Broadcasting Corp.

Israeli infantry and air forces battled Hezbollah guerrillas Thursday for control of three key southern Lebanese towns that could serve as the platform for a broader invasion. In Beirut, Israeli aircraft damaged a historic lighthouse that rises from the Lebanese American University and dropped leaflets warning of a "painful and strong" response to Hezbollah attacks. Overnight, Israeli warplanes launched more than 100 airstrikes targeting Hezbollah positions, the Israeli army said.
