Our "United Jerusalem Forever" is totally divided.
There are three distinct divisions in our capital city - the Secular, the Religious (which comprises both the Ultra-Orthodox and the Traditional Orthodox) and the Arabs.
The friction that has become hatred between the Secular and the Religious is probably the biggest danger to the unity of Jerusalem and is fast becoming an explosive situation. This wound is probably incurable due to intolerance but we can do something about the Arab population of Jerusalem.
Give them a reason not hate Israel and show them that being a citizen of a democratic Israel in which they have the same rights as the Arabs in the rest of Israel might be more constructive than Judifying their neighborhoods and throwing them out of the homes in which they have lived for generations.
Israel Beiteinu proclaims "No loyalty - No Citizenship". How can you expect people who live under threat of losing their homes to be loyal? We do very little to encourage loyalty by our Arab population. It is time that the powers that be woke up and realized that they are here to stay and they should be given a reason not to hate Jews and Israel. The turmoil and massacres we are seeing in the region should be used by the Government to show the Arabs that Israel respects the rights of its people which are abused in countries like Libya, Syria, Iran, Yemen and the like.
9. "RESTORE" courage?
Gee, I did not know we had lost it. What an utter embarrassment this farce is. Two comical attention seekers- Beck and Danon- putting on a circus in the Holy City. I mean, goodness gracious, the TV station with the lowest standards, the least professionalism and credibility in the HISTORY of television, kicked Beck off its network because of his antics. And Jerusalem is "welcoming" him. Haven't we suffered enough?
10. Glen Beck is a true friend of Israel
11. Israel doesn't need more crazies
Seriously, Glen Beck! The same guy who used Nazi propaganda against the Jews on Wall Street during his shows, while at the same time comparing everyone he didn't like to Hitler. Keep this maniac out of this country, he only brings problems with him wherever he goes.

12. Wishing for War
I'd rather be at war with the Arabs- maybe Syria or Iran-than suffer this invasion by Eisav/Edom.
These Americans think Israel is their little playground. When Mashiach is here, they will not be welcome to bring their empty culture and idolatrous religion here any longer.
Will Palin and Bachman be in the segregated part of the Wall?
And will their images be removed from the more orthodox brethrens' newspapers? oh so many questions......
14. #8 the Arabs know that Israel is better for them
Look at the polls, 70% or more Arabs want to stay in Israel even if Palestine is created, more if their neighborhood near Jerusalem is part of Palestine.
They know that their rights under Israel now are 1000% better than the will be under a Palestinian state or any Arab state.

15. Glenn Beck's Jerusalem Rally -- error
Story identifies U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman as a Democrat. He no longer is. He is officially an Independent.

21. to @5
loved the video.
glenn should really consider that...
22. @ 20
no. we're not stupied.
We are in trouble.
And to prevent the display of the little support after the war breaks out (in Israel it is clear to everyone that war is only a matter of time) it is better to anticipate the support before the war so we can rejoice in our existence in this country...

24. Wake up everybody!
Wake up everybody!
Compromise a tenet of Western Civilization, has no meaning in the Middle East. It connotes weakness, something Abbas et.al. cannot engage in, Remember Anwar Sadat! The Palestinians, in the many years of "negotiating" have not made a single concession, not one! "Negotiation is a process where each party involved in negotiating tries to gain an advantage for themselves by the end of the process. Negotiation is intended to aim at compromise." This will never happen with the Palestinians! Israel, you are now left with only two choices, surrender or create new realties on the ground that will change the landscape in the Middle East forever.

25. Let Beck be an inspiration to all Patriotic Israel..
Israel needs regular massive patriotic rallies to restore honor and courage till the last vestiges of destructive leftist dominance have been swept away, Till Israel finally gets the courageous patriotic vehemently right wing government it consistently votes for. I salute Glenn Beck. Let his leadership be a glorious inspiration to all Patriotic Israel, the vast majority of our land.
