    Israel was specifically created where religion & state were connected. Although it may be a secular state Israel is still a JEWISH STATE not some kind of multi cultural, multi faith country which exists to serve the residents. Israel was created for the people of a certain faith, all the symbols of state, the currency, the national holidays are all jewish and relate to no other faith. Even the IDF adopts jewish law Only jews have an automatic right to emigrate to Israel because of their faith. When Eichman was put on trial it wasn't simply war crimes like other Nazis were tried for he was put on trial for crimes against the jewish people If state & religion were seperate he would never have been tried on the charge of crimes against jews If Israel gave up its identity as a jewish state there would be no reason for it to continue to exist because the only reason it was created was to provide jews with a state of their own As faith & state are connected then Jerusalem is important

    from the article: Israel should give up Jerusalem as its capital
