A mass rally that might attract tens of thousands of people is scheduled for next Wednesday 5:30 p.m. (EDT) at Times Square in New York City.
Police have planned for thousands of people to show up, but Tuesday’s agreement with Iran and the explosive opposition from Israel and the Jewish community in the United States is likely to draw much larger crowds.
The long-rage forecast is for temperatures in the 80s (Fahrenheit) and a 50 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms.
Speakers at the rally include:
Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law Professor; John Batchelor, Radio Host WABC-AM; Caroline Glick, Deputy Managing Editor of the Jerusalem Post;
David Brog, Executive Director, Christians United for Israel; Steven Emerson, founder of The Investigative Project on Terrorism; Frank Gaffney, founder of the Center for Security Policy;
Kasim Hafeez, founder of “The Israel Campaign” and Christians United for Israel’s Outreach Coordinator; Pete Hoekstra, former U.S. Congressman and Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Tony LoBianco, “The French Connection” Actor and Activist;
Clare M. Lopez, former CIA officer, Terrorism and Iran Expert at Center for Security Policy; George Pataki, former three-term governor of New York and in office during 9/11; Allen West, former Congressman and retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel;
James Woolsey, former Director of the CIA and Chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies; and Mortimer Zuckerman, chairman and editor-in-chief of U.S. News & World Report and the publisher of the New York Daily News and former Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
The rally organizers have stated that their mission is:
— an end to the farce being perpetrated against the American people with a pending deal which will endanger America and our allies;
— restoration of the ORIGINAL demands – NO nuclear military capability, NO centrifuges and authority for any and all unannounced inspections of all known and any future facilities discovered; and
–providing an understanding that a failure to STOP IRAN NOW will necessitate a military response later.
In honor of the latest of flotilla to Gaza we once again present again “We Con the World”.

Yishai returns from a week of IDF reserve duty and reflects that there are only two kinds of people: the courageous and the cowardly. But to survive, Israel must have courage. Then, Yishai talks with Prof. Yoav Yair who worked with Israeli astronaut Col. Ilan Ramon to identify “Sprites” – large-scale electrical discharges that occur high above thunderstorm clouds. Now Yair is concerned with global climate change and tells Yishai that leaders must prepare for radical change in the Middle East. Finally, the Jerusalem Post Policy Conference caused fireworks with Caroline Glick accusing Israeli security officials of failing to attack Iran, then the crowd booed U.S Treasury Secretary Jack Lew as he claimed that the Obama Administration has done everything possible to stop Iranian nuclear ambitions and protect Israel. Yishai is joined by the Jerusalem Post’s Oped Editor Dr. Seth Frantzman and Magazine Editor Laura Kelly to discuss the raucous conference and the question of whether this was American-style democracy in action.
Their discussion begins at 6:20 (they switch back and forth a little bit between Hebrew and English).
The latest Latma – HaKol Shafit, with English subtitles.
I recommend watching the Any Boycott, and Hanin Zoabi segments.
It is such outspokenness that causes some of Glick’s fans on the right to voice distress – not pleasure – at the prospect of her signing up with the Likud. Batya Medad, writing in the blog “Shiloh Musings” warned that if Glick joins Netanyahu, that her one-state solution “hard-hitting opinions” will be “muzzled window-dressing” in the Likud, and she will merely act as “window-dressing” for Netanyahu. “It’s because I agree with and respect Caroline Glick that I want her to stay on the outside where she won’t be muzzled and disciplined. We need an “untied” Caroline Glick!!” Medad and company needn’t panic just yet. Glick’s Likud spot is far from a done deal, and she hasn’t even confirmed that an offer was made. It’s not clear precisely how politically advantageous for Netanyahu choosing her would be. Glick is far from a household name to non-English speaking Israelis, and her public repudiation of the two-state solution puts her in the politically problematic right end of the Likud spectrum. It’s not a political position she can fudge or conceal. Her latest book, after all, is titled The Israeli Solution: A One State Plan for Peace in the Middle East.
First of all, to refer to Glick as “far from a household name to non-English speaking Israelis” is totally false. She is bilingual and has an extremely large Hebrew-speaking fan base. Latma was/is in Hebrew besides a couple of their songs. I think the Anglo writer Allison Kaplan Sommer is just projecting her own language restrictions/limitations here. There’s plenty of Hebrew on Glick’s facebook page, and she has been in Israel for a long time.
I’m a cynic and I have a nasty suspicion that Bibi wants Glick in the party Likud Party Knesset list for one reason and one reason only, to get votes. As much as he couldn’t stand Moshe Feiglin, he can’t deny that Feiglin brought in votes, but it was clear to all that those votes won’t return. Feiglin supporters didn’t even show up to vote in the Likud Primaries. Many are joining Bennett’s Jewish Home, or Otzma Yehudit or are just plain disenchanted with politics.
Caroline Glick will attract votes and I’m sure that the “election events planners” would love a debate between her and Ayelet Shaked who agree on just about everything except which party to support.
