Dear “Chosen” Activists:
We had a great rally yesterday morning against Phelp’s “Nazis” (4 of them). We had 100 wonderful and caring folks come together with our statements and a ton of cars giving us support, plus live broadcast from Jeff Katz on WFTL and then again on Joyce Kaufman and Jeff Katz who both were there and then reflected on the rally and our impact. I would be on Joyce’s show a few hours later and then we got together for our regular Fed. Bldg. Rally on Tuesdays from 5-7P.M. and then on Monday we also did two rallies in Boynton Beach(Noon at Jog and Gateway) and at FAU in Boca Raton (Glades Rd. and 10th Ave.) Reaction at all of these events has been terrific. It’s a schlepp, but also exhilarating.
We’re at #175 rallies/events since Oct. 2007 and 1085 news interviews.
I’m sorry that the Palm Beach media really didn’t get our rally against the “Nazis”, with ages from 1 to 90, peaceful with lots of flags, our giant banners and a great energy of purpose, not to ignore these ‘Nazis”, but to use them to get out our own messages of unity and lack of fear and our opposition to their hate insecurities.
We had many new faces and all of this for early morning rush hour, with a passing rain shower and then two rainbows next to each other with, G-d supporting our efforts.
I mention the above positives with so many negatives going on.
Please understand that both the JCC and the ADL, told the rabbis to tell their congregations to discourage any participation with us. They even called Joyce’s Radio show with this pathetic plea to ‘ignore’ then., These ‘100’ we had ,ignored that aweful appeasement and cowardly politics, which is why the Jewish people are in such danger. We even had a Chabad rabbi who came late but also gave us encouragement and support.
The Nazis always get their press. When will be get ours? It’s been the basic issue all along which is to tell our 5000 yr. story, which is the history of the world. We are doing what the others are getting paid to do, but don’t and in fact continue to sabotage successes like we had.
So the Queen of England is also boycotting visiting Israel, while we watch on tv Israeli soldiers attacking fellow Jews, to appease Obama’s/Bibi’s ‘freeze’ on building on our own holyland.
Meanwhile, tens of thousands in Gaza are rallying to say: “Death to Israel”, “Death to America” and that they “will never recognize the Jewish State”, and this is what Obama and Bibi are catering to. What madness. Just how many times does the enemy state its case and the Jews are in such denial, and at this betrayal of Obama’s towards Israel.
U.S. House of Reps. votes for oil sanctions on Iran yesterday, which Obama opposed two months ago, and the grim news today is Iran’s latest rocket test that can reach Israel and S. Europe.
Here again Obama has ‘wasted’ a year playing his appeasement games with Iran, endangering Israel, America and the West.
The attitude ‘out there’ is that something awful is on the horizon and imminent for 2010….we are all feeling it and rallying together does help in showing everyone that we aren’t afraid and are going to resist those who want to do us all harm no matter what and is reflected by those driving by and also giving us their encouragement.
We are working very hard for a huge rally statement on Dec. 30, 2009 at the Fed. Bldg. in Ft. Laud., 3-7P.M. at 3rd Ave and Broward Blvd. Remember one year ago when the 300 pro-Hamas were screaming: “Jews into the ovens” and we were a national and international catalyst for rallies for Israel and against Hamas as a result of our efforts then that continue weekly to this date now.
We have gotten word that the pro-Hamas gang will be rallying nationally and internationally to mark this anniversary as well.
We urge you to mobilize in your own communities on this date or around this date. Don’t be silent when the enemy wants to do all of us harm.
If you can we’d be most grateful for your donations to continue and expand our efforts to: http://www.defendjerusalem.net or by mail to: “Defend Jerusalem”, P.O.Box 402263, Miami Beach, Fla. 33140.
Don’t forget, March 20, 2010, when we rally against the Lefties/Pro-Hamas when they march by the tens of thousands in Wash.,D.C. and we are at Navy Memorial, 7th to 9th sts. starting at 9AM.
Don’t forget the huge statement we will make for the “Million Mensch March”, June 6, 2010, anniversary of “D-Day”, and “6th Day War”, as we gather at 8AM, behind Holocaust Memorial in D.C., march to WWII Memorial, then on to the White House and rally at 2 P.M. at the U.S. Capitol to finally make our statement on Keeping Jerusalem United and in protecting and defending America and Israel.
We might well be in a war at this time. Please keep all of this in your hearts.
Yours in Shalom,
Pres., Shalom International
