Daniel Amarilio’s plan for Jerusalem is simple. This plan requires some
hundred square meters between East Jerusalem and West Jerusalem. This area will
provide the Site for the Union between the Jewish people and the Monotheistic
In this some hundred square meter area, the Theological Abraham’s state
“Halleluya”– the Spiritual Largest State in the World with close to three
billion believers - will be established.
The Amarilio Plan, will ensure its eternal security and develop it in worldly
In this way, Jerusalem will become the spiritual capital of the world as it
enters the third millennium.
Close to three billion people - Christians and Muslims, belief in the Old
Testament and the covenant of Abraham our forefather. This is a simple truth and
it is difficult to deny its existence.
Until the establishment of the State of Israel, the Jewish people accepted
this reality. Not only with agreement of a kind of fatalistic acceptance of the
unpreventable, but it was unable, because of its dispersal throughout the
Diaspora, to respond and persuade.
However, when the State of Israel was established, things should have
Amarilio uses the phrase “things should have changed” guardedly. They not
only did not change, but things got the worse.
The Jerusalem Problem is not a
Genuine Political Problem
Yes, the Jerusalem problem is a pseudo-political problem. Many countries in
the world have, over many years past, had capitals other than the cities that
serve as their capitals today. Let us take an example, from the current century
– the year 1945, when Bonn was declared as the capital of Germany, in place of
Berlin. Capital – is the city that the politicians declare as the capital, not
the religious. The capital is not declared by a religious authority.
Even the Vatican was built by the Italians, and the other countries agreed,
in order to separate religion from State and let it have its own, autonomous
territory, where it could dedicate itself to the service of G-d, without
embittering the lives of the atheists or broad-minded. In this way, there are
political capitals of the world and there is a religious spiritual center, which
is not a capital. “Halleluya” with some hundred square meters of its own space,
will be based on the same principle and will be, as Amarilio puts it, a cultural
and spiritual center for billions of people, in just the same way as economic
and industrial centers and so forth (in much the same way as the enormous city
of New York, for example, is not the capital of the U.S., but rather the smaller
city of Washington).
Despite this fact, efforts are being made to make Jerusalem the joint capital
of Israel and Palestine.
The problem is not a genuine political problem, but rather, a spiritual one.
It has no real political basis, whatsoever.
Throughout history, Jerusalem has never served as the capital of any other
people than the Jews.
The Palestinians are trying to move in this direction for completely
different reasons, which reflect expansionist ambitions. From a political point
of view, if they pursue those ambitions come what may, they will suffer untold
In the book, “Halleluya – the Peace State in Jerusalem” the Jewish hero,
Moses, does not divide Jerusalem. He simply establishes a city within it called
“Halleluya,” a city covering an area of a some hundred square meters and
inhabited by some one thousand religious inhabitants of the three main faiths.
The head of the city is a Jew - the Chief Rabbi, and the city is under the aegis
of the State of Israel. Its security is the responsibility of the Israel Defense
Forces. In this way, Moses, the hero of the story, establishes the moral and
spiritual center of the monotheist world – in the most correct location that
could possible be – where a large portion of mankind received its basic and
moral values from the Jewish people, values which will be current for thousands
of years to come.
Why not Internationalize Jerusalem
It is forbidden to change Jerusalem into an international city. This
contradicts mankind’s most elementary values. It would take us back to the most
shameful periods of the history of mankind: the Inquisition, the pogroms and
aggressive racism, and would strengthen religious fanaticism.
Internationalizing Jerusalem would be sure to boomerang on those who want to
do it. It will also form a basis for murder and anti-Semitism. It is morally
criminal: How is it possible to change Jerusalem into an international entity
when it is the very capital that gave this world the belief in one G-d! G-d
himself will not forgive those who crusade for its internationalization and will
punish them in the cruelest manner imaginable. Why? Because the peoples of the
world did not know how to declare the people of Israel as the people that gave
them half of their religion, and moreover, that Jerusalem is the heart of each
and every Jew as well as the Jewish nation as a whole.
The Initiatives should come Only
For more than fifty years, not one Israeli government has taken any
initiative to bring to an end, the world’s boorishness towards Israel’s eternal
Israel has beautified tourist cities such as Eilat, Caeserea, Tel Aviv,
Jerusalem and others but has never addressed the basic historical truth: the
need to draw to Israel its half brothers and sisters from the two other
religions. There has been a complete lack of information and even greater lack
of persuasion. It is Israel itself, that has created an enormous vacuum over the
question of Jerusalem and if Israel does not act immediately, it will find
itself under threat of overthrow from within this vacuum.
The initiatives must come from Israel (and not from the Christians and
Muslims) so as not to enable others to try and make alternative, anti-Israel,
anti-Semitic, anti-Jewish proposals. Israel must immunize religion from politics
and keep the two separate.
Other democracies in the world did this long before us and they are no less
religious than Israel. The Italians, Spanish (a very catholic people) Americans
and English, all of Europe, all of America, Africa and Asia, made the
differentiation between religion and politics. Only modern, hi-tech Israel has
done nothing about it. Amarilio believes: Just as one has to be brave to make
peace, so do Israel’s politicians need to be brave to make the separation
between religion and politics and apportion the three religions an autonomous
city (suited to carry a name like “Halleluya”) where they can administer to
their joint faiths and build peace among the religions.
Huge Tourist Value from The Abraham
State - Halleluya City in Jerusalem
The establishment of the Halleluya City in Jerusalem will change it into a
tourist attraction of worldwide significance. Amarilio’s book, “Halleluya - the
Peaceful City in Jerusalem,” has the hallmarks of Halleluya City. These include
an enormous tower of the three faiths, the anthem, flag, its own postage stamps,
guard of honor and so on and so forth.
“Halleluya” will, he believes, draw millions of tourists per year. In order
to establish the location’s identity, Israel must establish “Halleluya City”
without delay, even if it has to do so alone. Afterwards, the Christian and
Muslim partners will always be found to enter holy Halleluya.
We do not have to behave like a ostrich and dig our heads and necks deep into
the sand: There will be no other solution to the problem of the holy sites in
The Anti-virus Method
The anti-virus method is a very simple one. One takes the virus tissue that
causes death, weakens it extensively and the body is then restored to health.
This method is applicable in almost every walk of life. In his book, “It is so
easy to defeat poverty in this world” his heroes do the same thing. In order to
bring about an end to poverty in the world, they took the virus of exclusivity
of production of a single product and considerably weakened it, and afterwards
the same exclusivity cured the poor people of every country. How? – When every
country in the world received from the heroes of its book (in fact, the U.N.),
in addition to its current production, exclusivity of production for an item of
the simplest nature, for six billion people, from which all the revenues are
devoted to the eradication of poverty in each and every country in the world.
This is how the exclusivity virus made a serum to serve as the antivirus of
poverty. So it is with Jerusalem. We will describe, for comparison’s sake, a
scenario where a killer virus has eaten it and the three religions. It is simple
to manufacture the anti-virus that will cure it. Before the State of Israel, a
similar thing was done by Italy: It built the Vatican in an area of 400 square
meters, with a few hundred Catholic religious servants and other Catholic
countries breathed a sigh of relief. This released them from the Inquisition,
and from the ungainly interference of religion in politics. In the “Halleluya
City”, scores of institutions for religious outreach, as the basis for peace in
the Middle East and the fight against poverty in the world, will be built.
“Halleluya City” will contribute to the distancing of war. We are entering the
third millennium. There are less than one hundred days left to the start of the
third millennium – this must be the millennium that sees the creation of
Why it is good for the
The establishment of the “Halleluya City” on a very small area between east
and west Jerusalem with autonomous status, and under the aegis of the State of
Israel, will be a good thing for the Jews. This will remove the thorn from
religious extremism, from the Christian, Muslim and Jewish fundamentalists. With
the establishment of “Halleluya City”, our capital will be duly recognized as
territory that will never again be declared as a “causa belli”. Just as the
Vatican was not attacked during the Second World War, neither will Jerusalem be.
In today’s world of rockets and atomic warheads, “Halleluya” will ensure that no
substantial area of Israel attacked by such killer warfare . It is worth
mentioning that during the Gulf War, not one Iraqi rocket fell anywhere near
Jerusalem (even without the establishment of “Halleluya”).
The establishment of “Halleluya” will give all three religions huge revenues
from tourism. Israel will become a world focus. Its reputation will grow the
world over. Jerusalem with “Halleluya” will become the recognized capital of
Israel, the world over. Jerusalem will develop as a modern metropolitan city of
Why it is good
for the Christians
The Christian world has recently begun asking forgiveness from the Jewish
people and condemning anti-Semitism. With the establishment of the “Halleluya
City” in Jerusalem, the need for internationalization will be eradicated. The
Christians will show the world that they have finally learnt something from
history, and that there is no force in the world that can deny that they are
half-brothers of the Jews when the basis for their religion lies in is Judaism
Today, they are far removed from Jerusalem and if they one day wish to
return, they need to send a representative to “Halleluya City”, and not to
conquer Jerusalem as their Christian predecessors have done a number of times
throughout history, in blood-spilling episodes. This time, it will happen
without war, without enmity, without violence, but with honest agreement and
deep respect for the Jewish people. (There are still people in the world who
call us the chosen people) All this, in a some square meter area called
Why it is good for the
The Muslims do not have three options, rather two: they can either live in
peace with the Jews or die in war.
In today’s world where one can destroy the whole world with hydrogenium and
atomic warheads, the balance between Israel and the Arab world will one day be
based on this satanic power. The fear of total destruction.
Only an unbalanced satanic leader would be mad enough to upset the balance.
Amarilio hopes that the international community will try to prevent such a
danger in time. Can the entire Middle East be turned into a valley of death,
including Egypt and Libya? There is no logical way that this can be
conscionable. Israel is a country that does not have the power to overrun
another. It only has the power to deal a deathblow to an aggressor. Israel does
not constitute a threat to the existence of any neighboring country. On the
other hand, the Arab countries may not destroy Israel: This will bring about the
total destruction of the Middle East from the face of the earth. Even distant
areas of Africa, Europe (if the attack comes from there).
With the scenario like that, the most logical thing for the Muslims would be
to give some respect to the Jews. They owe that to the Jews. Israel, with the
establishment of “Halleluya City” in Jerusalem (according to Amarilio’s book),
will invite the Muslims to participate in the running of “Halleluya.” Including
the Christians. It will be a kind of triumvirate formed out of representatives
of the three main monotheistic faiths. In this way, Islam will enter the third
millennium as part of the modern, advanced, tolerant world. It will be more
respected that it is today, by the Americans and the Europeans, who will become
even more powerful in the first century of the third millennium.
The Jerusalem Institute has presented Israeli governments with a little less
than one hundred proposals for the solution of the Jerusalem problem. None of
these proposals bears any resemblance to the solution that Amarilio has
proposed. The establishment of “Halleluya” will not affect the independence of
any country, nor will it affect the sovereignty of any country, or take space
Jerusalem will not be divided. From the virus itself, Israel will create the
antivirus it needs. And this will be the most effective solution in the war
against this illness that threatens the entire Middle East. The “Jerusalem
Syndrome” has accounted for millions of casualties and tragedies during the last
two thousand years. The only way to kill the virus that causes the “Jerusalem
Syndrome” is to create the anti-virus from the virus itself. What works for
medicine, can work for the health of the entire world from sicknesses that are
