Anti-jihad, pro-Israel rallies in New York and all over!

Yesterday I had the honor of being among the speakers at a rally in support of the people of Israel in New York City. In my brief remarks I emphasized the moral challenge and moral imperative that the world faces today: Israel is the front line of the jihad that threatens Europe, America, India, and so many others, and if we don’t stand together, as Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, and all free people, it will assuredly prevail. If the appeasers in the EU and UN think they will be spared the same scourge that Israel now faces, they are in for a rude awakening.

My friend and colleague Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs was there also, and she took the photos above (Atlas reader Nancy took the last one) — more photos here.

Pamela has been doing remarkable work covering this conflict — especially the bloodthirsty and hateful demonstrations that the Left and the jihad sympathizers have been staging all over. The last few weeks I have been tempted to link to practically every story she puts up, but it would be just as easy for you to go over and read them all at Atlas Shrugs, and check back regularly. For her work on this alone she richly deserves the 2008 Best Conservative Blog Award — vote here!

Anyway, because of those hate-filled and pro-genocide demonstrations, which are extremely disturbing to see in America, Canada, and Europe, it is all the more important for every lover of freedom to take a public stand against the jihad and in support of Israel. Below I have reproduced this list of upcoming anti-jihad, pro-Israel demonstrations, and added in other rallies and related activities. If you know of any that are not on this list, please let me know and I will add them.

    Thanks for posting that information. I was pleased to see a south-asian man holding a sign “Hindus for Israel.” As a southasian myself, I feel very strongly that Israel has the right to protect itself.

    Best,
