'Jerusalem, the undivided capital' at the forefront of the 'Zero Tolerance 4 Terror' rally in Times Square.

It is a pure Jewish concept that the best way to overcome evil is with positive energy — and Jews are great at “rocking out” when it comes to combining that punch with pizzazz.

Thousands of young New Yorkers gathered in Times Square late Sunday to show their solidarity with Israel as part of the ‘Zero Tolerance 4 Terrorism’ movement.

Thousands were at the ‘Zero Tolerance 4 Terror’ rally in Times Square.

“Let’s allow our voice of outrage to be heard loud and clear; Never again! Jewish blood is not cheap,” proclaimed the group’s Facebook page prior to the rally.

In response, demonstrators from all walks of life came to stand together with Israel and celebrate the Jewish State as a panoply of speakers, Jewish entertainment groups, musicians and vocalists took the stage.

‘What part of ‘Death to America, Death to Jews’ don’t you understand?’ read one sign.

The pulsating music kept the atmosphere positive and energetic long into the night.

On Seventh Avenue and 48th Street, a pro-Palestinian Authority counter-demonstration did its best to raise a little action against the Jewish energy, but it was like bailing an ocean with a teacup from a raft.

Slogans included “Free Free Palestine” “Intifada Intifada” “Long Live The Intifada” shouted by young women wearing jihabs on stage.

Pro-Palestinian Arab signs read, “No Justice, No Peace” — a slogan stolen from recent Black rioters across the United States, taken originally from the mantra chanted by Black rioters in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn during the 3-day pogrom in Aug. 1991.

Despite the small numbers the signs that were brandished by those who attended the counter-rally were troubling. They signaled — as in the past — the joining of two completely disparate causes. Palestinian Arab terrorists have once again managed to hijack the civil rights struggle of people of color in the United States.

  1. the syrians wanting to go to europe and america are mostly young men don't let them in, it will be trouble down the road and maybe right away, islam can't and wont get along with non-islam, they wont it's written by they're leader- accept it !!!

  2. this is a shameful and utter lie!!! There was not "thousands" at this rally. You barely had 600 to 700 people. I was there and the police cornered off all of 48th through 53rd street for Jews to support Israel. Alas, there was only enough supporters that barely filled up half of the 48th street barrier. So while I would loved to have seen my fellow Jews from Flatbush, Crown Heights, Boro Park and elsewhere, They were too busy being apathetic to the plight of blood of our brothers in Israel to even care to show support. I applaud every person that braved the freezing cold, but don't perpetuate a lie that would make us think that many NYC Jews care about the rivers of blood that's being stained in Eretz Yisrael, they don't.
