The summer of 2014. One anti-Israel rally too many. Annoying. Repetitive. I stopped posting. (a temporary silence)
“There is nothing wrong with your television. Do not attempt to adjust the picture.”Then, on August 17th, the Pamela Geller/Robert Spencer Rally , “Support For Israel and Religious Minorities” was held in Union Square- NYC. Even though we are walk in the shadow of Global Horrors, I left feeling energized by such a wonderful, spirited community.
What follows now, in Three Parts, are different events (Pro and Anti Israel) from July and August. Beginning with “We The Living Support Israel”
From Pamela Geller
“For the first time, defenders of Israel and representatives of minorities persecuted by Islamic jihadists from around the world gathered together to stand for life and for freedom. Finally, the truth.
Our speakers provided harrowing insight into the full breadth and depth of the havoc and destruction that Islamic jihadists have unleashed upon the world. New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind gave a stirring appeal for Israel in its struggle against the jihad, and was seconded by the eloquent Ethiopian Jewish spokesman Mordechai Tasman and an IDF soldier who spoke of his own experiences. Dr. Mordechai Kedar flew from Israel for the rally, and showed how the jihadists are proceeding according to quranic imperatives.
What was unprecedented and groundbreaking about our rally was that these strong defenders of Israel were joined by others: Yazidi spokesman Haider Elias, the toweringly courageous and eloquent Sudanese freedom fighter Simon Deng, Palestinian Christian Mazzen Warra, Pastor Matthew Singh of Christians United for Israel, Indian human rights activist Arish Sahani, and Kurdish spokesman Salar Motidi — all of them recognized that we all face the same foe, and all of them ringingly affirmed the necessity for us to stand together for freedom.”
Playlist of 15 great videos. Wonderful speakers gave support to Israel and to other victims of devout Islamists. We heard from the victims. We heard their warnings.
Concern for those who fear for their lives 24/7 rang through the air. Cries and pleas ignored by the media. They can’t handle the truth. So they ignore it.

We sang of Hope, Hatikva, of Yerushalim. A crowd favorite was , “Hashem Melech, Hashem Malach“, The Lord is King!
It was a fabulous rally.
Perhaps “new blood”, like Ari Lesser, will expose the media lies and propaganda with his hip-hop lyrics (which you can enjoy in the video playlist above) His lyrics smartly meet the challenge for the Next Generation.
“This is their Battle. Their Future.”
A great day for freedom lovers. Inspired. Our counter protests grow.
Thinking about our media battles. Looking back at July and August. I am posting some pictures and videos of anti-Israel protests from the summer of ’14
August 1, 2014. Columbus Circle. NYC.
Community Organizers prop-up these Muslim protests. Soc/Commie/Progs working behind-the-scenes to kill Western Civilization one protest-at-a-time. Fools and Tools. They. Never. Stop.
Slideshow August 1st PRO-Israel COUNTER PROTEST: Emotions ran deep from those who came out to support Israel in the midst of another anti-Israel hate-fest. They hung in there, even though the police kept moving them from corner to corner.

Slideshow August 1st -Anti-Israel Rally – Columbus Circle. Offensive signs filled with LIES; accusing Israel of ‘genocide’, of being Nazis.

Death to Israel chants. Fists pumped in the air. Angry. Hateful. No call for peace. Not real peace. Not from these professional agitators. The leftist agitprop of genocidal hatred rang through the air, “Stop the killing. Stop the Hate”. Pleas meant to mislead the gullible press who choose to ignore the Nazi-like fists pounding over-head.
The heart-felt pain of one woman who came to support Israel .
They called this ‘hate’.
All I saw was despair. (August 1st playlist 5 short videos)
They NEVER stop.
This next rally was a “Takbir-fest”, in July.
July 17 , 2014 – Times Square-Pumping fists. Screaming. Yelling. Chants-of-Hate.
Intifada, Intifada and “Takbir, Takbir, Takbir” (allah is greatest)
To be Free from Fear. Free Of Islam. Free from Tyranny. From brutal, murderous Savages. That would be REAL Peace.
All the isms want ‘peace’. Communism, fascism, islamism etc.Their peace where everybody agrees with their philosophy/religion and always does what they are told. Non-conformists are of course severely punished or murdered.
The battle for peace continues as we fight to stop the Media lies and distortions.
Never Again means Never Again….
Protests. Rallies. Counter-Protests.
Be Aware. Be Ready.
… evil WILL continue to thrive in this world until people make a conscious, deliberate, decision and effort to face it, grab it by the horns and and defeat it.

Wishing won’t do anything. Complaining does nothing but delight our enemies. Confrontation is the only way to deal with it.
Stand Up. Speak Out. Fight Back!
