CBS NEWS REPORTS WHITE
HOUSE IS “STUNG” BY
CRITICISM OF OBAMA
IN THE POURING RAIN, THOUSANDS GATHERED IN FRONT OF THE ISRAELI CONSULATE IN NEW YORK YESTERDAY AT THE HISTORIC BREAK THE SILENCE RALLY, TO STAND WITH ISRAEL AND PROCLAIM THAT WE NEVER AGAIN WILL BE SILENT.
THE SPEAKERS STOOD IN SOLIDARITY WITH ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO BUILD AND LIVE IN ITS OWN COUNTRY.
THEY SPOKE OUT FOR A UNITED JEWISH JERUSALEM, A STRONG AND SECURE ISRAEL, PROTECTION OF THE HOLY SITES OF JEWISH PEOPLE, AND THAT THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONGS TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE ACCORDING TO HISTORY, RELIGION AND INTERNATIONAL LAW.
BUT THE OVERARCHING THEME OF THE PROTEST WAS TO EXPRESS THE SPEAKERS’ PROFOUND DISPLEASURE REGARDING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S DISGRACEFUL SCAPEGOATING OF ISRAEL.
Those addressing the rally included Curtis Sliwa of the Guardian Angels; Dr. Herbert London of the Hudson Institute; Rabbi Aryeh Spero; Dr. Michael Ledeen of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies; Joy Brighton of Stop Shariah Now; Joan Peters, author of FromTime Immemorial; Rabi Joseph Potasnik of the New York Board of Rabbis; Assemblyman Dov Hikind; Laurie Cardoza-Moore of Proclaim Justice to the Nations; Mallory Danaher of the David Horowitz Freedom Center; rally organizer Beth Gilinsky of the Action Alliance; Rabbi David Algace of World Committee for the Land of Israel, Narain Kataria of the Indian American Intellectuals Forum; Helen Freedman of Americans for a Safe Israel; Tamar Adelstein of the Crown Heights Women for the Security and Integrity of Israel; Rev. Michael Faulkner, New Horizon Church; James Lafferty, chairman and founder of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force; Lori ri Lowenthal Marcus of Z Street; Susan Cone of Republican Jewish Coalition; Jeffrey Wiesenfeld, the CUNY Trustee who recently confronted Nation of Islam supporter NY City Councilman Charles Barron; Bhupinder Bhurji of the Namdari Sikh Foundation; and Reuven Margolies of the Zionist Organization of America.
