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.

The anti-semites in Jewish costume never miss an opportunity to exhibit their nazism.
The speech makers went to extraordinary lengths to declare this is not a war against the "Palestinian" people, this is to stop Hamas. The Jews always say this. Always. I have yet to hear a similar declaration made at the anti-Israel, pro-jihad rallies. Never did I hear this is not a war against the Jewish people.
