Israel Haters Around the World, Unite!

Many Jewish day school students in the U.S. and around the world today wore either red, or blue and white to show support for Israel. Still, there are those who are determined to cast Israel as the aggressor.

While there has been an outpouring of individual support, and a trickle of international support (from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Germany) for Israel’s self-defensive operation, “Amud Anon” or as it is called in English, Pillar of Defense, not everyone is supportive.

Many Jewish day school students in the U.S. and around the world today wore either red, or blue and white to show support for Israel.  Still, there are those who are determined to cast Israel as the aggressor.

For example, at the University of California, Los Angeles, students are being urged to wear black, in solidarity with their “brethren” in Gaza. From 11:30 am – 1:00 pm PST, there will be an Emergency Rally for Gaza in Meyerhoff Park.

Wednesday evening, hundreds of Turks crowded into a square in Istanbul City to protest Israel’s military response to the hundreds of rockets fired at her citizens from Gaza.  The chair of the Turkish “relief foundation,” IHH,  Fehmi Bulent Yildirim, said that the Islamic world is in “extreme anger over the Israeli attack on Gaza” and praised Egypt for withdrawing its ambassador to Israel.  Yildirim called on the Turkish government to throw out Israel’s Ambassador to Ankara.

There are some rallies of support being organized by pro-Israel groups.  At least two are planned for today, in New York City, 5:00 pm ET today, Support Israel’s Right to defend her children! 42nd & 2nd Ave in front of the Israeli Consulate, and one was held this morning outside of TKTS, “Tehilim in the Square in Support of Israel! Duffy Square in New York, New York.

At the University of Florida, Gainesville, nearly 100 people showed up at noon today to sing HaTikva and show support.  A rally is scheduled for tonight in Toronto, outside the Consulate, 180 Bloor Street, West, and one on Friday at noon, in Philadelphia, on the Southwest corner of 19th Street and JFK Boulevard. In a Philadelphia suburb tonight, the Modern Orthodox Lower Merion Synagogue invited the local Israeli Consul General to give them an update on the war, and congregants will be saying tehillim there, for klal Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael.

    IDIOTS OF THE WORLD will always unite in the name of folly. ISRAEL will overcome all odds against her, she always has. We have aright to defend ourselves from all aggression and lies.

  3. Sean Winkler says:

    I stand strong with many others like me in support of the Jewish Anti-Zionism movement. Any form of Zionism is heresy and the existence of the so-called "State of Israel" is illegitimate. So please, who can answer me these simple ten questions? http://www.jewsnotzionists.org/tenquestions.htm
    KNOW YOUR HISTORY!

  4. Stanley Tee says:

    So you found a fringe group of crazies, excommunicated or excoriated by 99.9% of the world's Jews, and you think you have the answer, something that reinforces your own blind hatred. You are a sick, sick person.

  5. Richard Armstrong says:

    Amazing you can reach the keyboard with your head in that position.

  6. Elohim Bless U and take care of U UWI by my heart.

SO SHUT THE **** UP. WHITE BOY IMPERIALIST SHILL.

    Silly–within the family, we have disagreements. But we don't celebrate when siblings are under attack from enemies. A difference of opinion between brothers doesn't mean that we aren't still brothers. When someone is shooting at your brother, you don't justify the shooter's actions; you defend your brother.

  9. Phil Keup says:

    Hey jenny we know your kind. Your kind killed millions on Soviet Russia and Turkish jews killed millions in Armenia. You suck the life blood out of every country you rule and are destroying this planet. Hitler was a jew and that why so many of your kind secretly fly his flag in your homes in israel to remind yorselves how much people hate you and what you can do to kill them or get them to kill each other. israel is the master of lies. hell its the motto of your intellegence agency
