Update:After the march to the Israeli Consulate, these supporters of Israel countered and interacted admirably with some of those who opposed Israel's existence.
Part 3- When these Jewish girls arrived at the Israeli Consulate, they were told they had to stand on the South/West corner of 42nd st and 2nd Ave (putting some distance between them and the anti-Israel faction)
But, the anarchists can't stand the slight of the Israeli flag! So their young men and young women came out to "engage" these stalwart defenders of Israel .
Their interviewers came over with cameras and recorders:
And there was the 'Peacenik'...."Grannies for Peace"-type...
She came (walker in tow) to the S/W corner...
...just to lecture the Jewish girls about Mengele and Hiroshima....
But she couldn't respond when pressed to discuss the anti-Israel lies presented by these children. (Seems she has no problem with these LIES)
The police seemed hesitant when it came to herding the anarchists back to their pen. These girls were waiting (a long time) for their bus...So, of course, they managed to harass the girls with chants of "Free Free Palestine" etc....
It was always a slow "would-you-please' go back. Not what our side is used to. (We're told to move and we hop.)
But what matters more is that these young women were great!
They quietly sang while they held their flags up with confidence.
Whether 4 0r 400 .... We make a difference. Am Yisrael Chai !
