On Tuesday, September 4 at 17:30 in the square before the Jerusalem town hall was held a demonstration remarkable both its theme and its form. 
The demonstration in support of the Idea of the State Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates was organised by the movement “Bead Artzein” (“For the Homeland”), headed by rabbi and historian Avrom Shmulevic from Hebron. 
“The usual demonstrations by all have bothered, new forms are needed” – said the activists. The bright performance, called by the participants as a "musical-political action", apart from speeches, slogans and distribution of leaflets, included the show of the rock group "Gosplan". On the backstage of the demonstration were casually appended pictures on militarist themes by the Haifa artist, appointed with the “Medals of the City of Haifa for his contribution to art”, Igor Cherchenko. The demonstration was concluded by a symbolical act – from a date-palm (symbol of the Country of Israel), under loud shouts of approval and appropriate music, was hung a puppet of Arafat.
The participants arrived from every corner of Israel: from Jerusalem, Hebron, Tel Aviv, Haifa and even Kyriat-Shmona – hundreds of people, including the active members of movement – and Arabs from Eastern Jerusalem, dissatisfied with Arafat’s terror. 
“The Israeli society lays in a state of deep systemic crisis, its total renewal is necessary, if you like - a revolution. Our movement unites the people, who cannot breath in this suffocating atmosphere, while the souls of those who love our land and our people is open to the New and Strange” - explains Abraham Shmulevic. 

“The process of national revival of the Jewish people is irreversible and has its internal logic” - he says. “We shall have no peace as long as the whole territory of the Country of Israel will not return under Jewish control. This might sound too hard, but such is the logic of history. The war on the Holy Land has been already fought for  four thousand years and the end cannot be seen. A stable peace will come only then, when Israel will return to itself all its historical lands, and will thus control both the Suez and the Ormudz channel. The state will find at last its geostrategic completeness. We must remember that Iraqi oil fields too are located on the Jewish land. This may seem utopia to many now - but an even greater utopia seemed a hundred years ago the revival of the Jewish state. As Hertzil said: "If you want it, this will not not be a fairy tale" ”.

" A long road begins with one step " – says an ancient proverb. This step to the renaissance of Greater Israel in its biblical borders was made in the centre of Jerusalem.
