The rally was to highlight what many see as anti-Israel bias in the White House.
Among the groups in attendance was Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, The Jewish Political Education Foundation, Jews United for Israel, Artists 4 Israel, Z Street, The Jerusalem Reclamation Project, The Center For Defense of Democracies, the AISH Center, AMCHA; Coalition for Jewish Concerns, and the Endowment for Middle East Truth.
Radio talk show host Steve Malzberg and columnist Rabbi Aryeh Spero served as the masters of ceremony. They introduced a number of speakers including Rabbi Yaakov Spivak of Monsey, NY, a longtime Jewish activist, radio talk show host and a Daily News columnist who said, "President Obama, we're here today to tell you something. In Warsaw, they told Jews where we could build, in Lodz they told Jews where we could build, in Paris they told Jews where we could build. You will never tell us where to build in Jerusalem. We are home and Israel is our country. You are not our landlord and we are neither a vassal state nor a banana republic."
In San Fransisco, meanwhile, an organization of LGTB gathered to celebrate freedom in Israel pointing out that in Israel, and in the IDF, you can "Ask and tell".
Off topic, but, what the hell is "Democracy Now " all about, really?
It isn't about democracy.
Someone needs to tell them that being for democracy is more than just hating America and Israel.
They had the slimeball, Miguel D'escoto, former President of the U.N, General Assembly, for an interview.
Among other things he attacked Israel as "Zionist", saying that the "worst thing the UN has done is not giving the Palestinian Arabs a state."
He called Ronald Reagan the "Greatest mass murderer in history".
What a freaking moron.
