Should Hallel be recited on Yom Yerushalayim? I know that many rabbis hold on each side of this dispute so I'd like answers and justifications for those answers from both sides.

    @DanF That question is about which gedolim say to recite hallel. This question is about whether hallel should be said and why. Just because the answer to the other question lists some justifications doesn't mean the questions are duplicates.

    @DanF My point is the other question does not request persuasive answers to the question of whether hallel should be recited. It just requests a list. My question requests a ruling and a reason for the ruling.

I have seen a number of Orthodox places / yeshivot (a few in my neighborhood) that are more inclined to say Hallel on Yom Yerushalayim and not on Yom Ha'atzma'ut. Part of it is a "political" statement. They don't "believe" in the current state of Israel with its secular government and philosophy. But, they agree on the importance, significance and holiness of Yerushalayim, and esp. that the main result of the 6 Day war restored access to the Kotel.
