US President Barack Obama’s much-heralded visit to Jerusalem is still a month away, but preparations for “Operation Unbreakable Alliance” are already in full swing. Obama is expected to arrive on March 20.

Secret service agents have reportedly already checked out the King David Hotel, which will be completely taken over by Obama’s entourage. Guests who had reservations for pre-Passover festivities in the King David, traditionally a busy time for tourists in Jerusalem, have already been moved to other hotels.

Also celebrating Obama’s arrival is the Jerusalem Ice City, which has decided to create an ice sculpture of the American president in addition to the dinosaurs and fairy tale scenes already planned for this year’s Ice Festival.
