BREAK THE SILENCE RALLY - SUNDAY!! was held in front of the Israeli Consulate on Sunday, April 25, 2010. The treatment of Israel during the last several weeks by President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and spokesmen for the Administration has been an unprecedented attempt to humiliate the Jewish State and a willful isolation of it among the community of nations.The People of Israel are demoralized and feel abandoned by the lack of any strong and meaningful statement and vigorous, public demonstrations sponsored by any of the major and established Jewish organizations in support of Israel’s position regarding Jerusalem. This Rally is meant to show there is STRONG Support for Israel in America. Shame Shame on Obama and his Administration for abandoning Israel.
Slide show of Rally:
Because of the rain, had to stay with camera trying to film and keep camera dry wasn't easy (nor real successful) so didn't manage to get good crowd shots. It was a good turn-out crowd, in spite of the rain....about 2000.
