Which Rally Did You Go To?

August 21, 2014

The Jewish Times’ Aug. 7 article, “Baltimoreans Rally over Gaza” says that hundreds of people showed up. As the first one there at 3:30 p.m. and leaving after Mincha and tehillim at around 8 p.m., I saw a different reality. With plenty of video and pictures to prove the point, and having spoken to the police unofficially, you can be sure that there were a minimum of 1,000 or 1,500 people rallying for Israel, far outnumbering the pro-Palestinians. If I had not been there myself but read the article, I would not have known of the enthusiasm, the spirit and the breathtaking love for Israel displayed by young and old. It was a major Kiddush Hashem. The police, under the leadership of Lt. Col. Melissa Hyatt, respected both sides and did an extraordinary job, above and beyond.

    Witch Hunt(op-ed, 8/21/2014)
    The so-called UN Human Rights Panel has now continued its anti-Israel bias by the proposed appointment to that body of a long term critic of Israel, William Schabas. The UN Human Rights Council is the last organization, as well as the UN General Assembly to pass judgment on Israel. Dominated by Muslim nations, the verdict before the mock trial is already known, namely a vitriolic indictment of Israel while Hamas is elevated to being the innocent party. The UN has outlived its usefulness in contributing to this lynching of Israel.
