Jews from all over the Tri State area gathered in NYC today to show support for their brothers in Israel. Unfortunately I could not attend but I was there in spirit.
Pamela Geller reports on her blog about the rally today:
The last minute, thrown together pro-Israel rally in NYC today was so packed, so overwhelming, they were turning Jews away. You could not get to the rally. The support parade was across from the Israel consulate between 42nd and 43rd. The police could not contain the throngs of happy, peaceful supporters and forced folks off 2nd Avenue. It was unbelievable.
I have been to all those Jew hating rallies, and they take over whole swaths of New York (this past weekend, for example) – they are given huge amounts of space, but the cops would not let us into the barricades. The Israel supporters were pouring into the streets. The young and the old – what a stark contrast from the haters’ demonstrations. Dark vs. light.
