People of Conscience were Urged to Join a PROTEST on Tuesday, July 30th, 2013, 12:30 to 2pm, across from the Israeli Consulate in NYC.
A DEMONSTRATION and PRESS CONFERENCE to PROTEST AGAINST THE PLANNED RELEASE BY THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT of 104 ARAB MURDERERS WITH THE BLOOD OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS ON THEIR HANDS.
Some of the organizations who supported this Press Conference included the Los Angeles-based Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, B’nai Brith of Toronto, Rachel’s Children Reclamation Center, the International Committee for the Land of Israel and a Victims of Terror group.
Demonstration and Protest Press Release:
On Sunday, July 28, 2013, Israeli Cabinet Members Gideon Saar, Moshe Yaalon, Yitzchak Aharonovich, Yuval Steinitz, Sofa Landver, Yair Lapid, Shai Piron, Yael German, Yaakov Perry, Meir Cohen, Tzipi Livni, and Amir Peretz voted with PM Netanyahu to release 104 Arab murderers of Jewish men, women, and children in another one of its “goodwill” gestures intended to coax the so-called Palestinian Authority back to the table for “peace talks”.
The release of unrepentant murderers, who will be greeted as returning heroes by their fellow terrorists, is a repugnant action that endangers the lives of every Jewish citizen who lives in Israel. Every land for peace deal that Israeli and Jewish leaders have agreed to has brought war, terrorism, devastating property damage and loss, and left traumatized vast numbers of our precious Jewish citizenry.
Not only is the release of these terrorists a violation of the judicial process with all its moral and ethical values, but the entire pursuit of the elusive “peace” is an exercise in futility. The PA has NEVER changed its Charter calling for the extermination of Israel, so there is no point in pretending that “peace” talks can get anywhere. Their goal is the extermination of Israel
We call on PM Netanyahu to immediately retract his offer to release 104 Arab terrorists. We call on all Knesset Members with a Jewish conscience to urge the PM to withdraw the offer and to end the charade of “peace” talks. Israel should ONLY come to the table when the PA Charter is revised.
As Americans, we strongly object to the arm twisting being exercised by President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry. It is up to Israel, and an Arab entity that will recognize Israel’s right to exist, to determine the “peace” that they can construct. America, the EU, the UN, and all others who think they can bully Israel should bow out.

“In an email to The Jewish Press on Tuesday evening, (Buddy) Macy- NJ Israel activist) explained that he had sent a copy of his speech to every member of the Israeli government, and concluded it with a plea for true American Jewish leadership regarding Israel:
We, in America, are also desperately seeking true leadership from one of our own who sits in a position of esteemed leadership. I am positive that at least one of you agrees with me that the release of 104 Arab “Palestinian” convicted murderers is an obscenity that reduces the worth of every Jew in the world. I am also certain that at least one of you thinks that the idea of a two-state ‘solution’ – at least at this time – is pure fantasy. Please, I beg of you, speak out publicly before all of Israel’s sovereignty has disappeared, and before all of us have been placed in grave danger.
Knesset member Nachman Shai (Labor) is the only Israeli who answered Macy’s emails. Shai wrote: “Do not send more emails.”
