Thousands of young New Yorkers gathered in Times Square Sunday to show solidarity with Israel and Zero Tolerance 4 Terrorism.

It is a pure Jewish concept that the best way to overcome evil is with positive energy and Jews are great at rocking out when it comes to combining that punch with pizzazz.

Thousands of young New Yorkers gathered in Times Square late Sunday to show their solidarity with Israel as part of the Zero Tolerance 4 Terrorism movement.



Lets allow our voice of outrage to be heard loud and clear; Never again! Jewish blood is not cheap, proclaimed the groups Facebook page prior to the rally.

In response, demonstrators from all walks of life came to stand together with Israel and celebrate the Jewish State as a panoply of speakers, Jewish entertainment groups, musicians and vocalists took the stage.

The pulsating music kept the atmosphere positive and energetic long into the night.

Every Pro Israel/ Pro Jewish rally: a positive vibe, smiles and unity in the face of opposition. Every anti-Jewish rally, miserable, angry, psychotic faces.

While we are without a shadow of a doubt pro - Israel and pro Jewish life, we are not however, under any circumstances pro Zionist, just see what the Rebbe Rashab and the Frierdike Rebbe have said about the movement, which was essentially started as a war against G-d and all things sacred.

The Israeli flag symbolizes the Zionist movement - not Israel, or Jewish life, and thus a Lubavitcher bochur should not be waving the Israeli flag. Yes, it is possible to show solidarity without waving the flag.

May Moshiach come immediately and the current government be replaced with Moshiach who will rule forever.

# 3, Exactly!
You're right. You know why all the Pro-Israel rallies are positive, with Jewish unity, and all the Pro-Palestinian rallies are angry, negative, and sometimes even involve physical violence? Because all these Palestinians, and all radical Muslims in general PROMOTE HATE, WHILE WE, THE JEWS, ONLY ARE ASKING FOR PEACE. And I think if the whole Palestinian-Israeli conflict was only about land, or about all sorts of lies they make up about Israel, then Hamas and Al-Quada wouldn't be spreading HATE about Jews.
These rallies are not to promote the creation of TWO STATES-BOTH AN ISRAELI STATE AND A PALESTINIAN ONE. These Palestinian protests and rallies are promoting hate, and THEY ARE ALL CONNECTED TO HAMAS AND OTHER TERRORIST ORGANIZATION WHO'S GOAL IS TO 'PUSH THE JEWS INTO THE SEA'. MEANING EXPEL THE JEWS OR KILL THEM, SO THAT THEY CAN GET BACK 'THEIR' LAND, AND ESTABLISH AN INDEPENDENT PALESTINIAN STATE, WHICH WOULD PROBABLY BE ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE CRAZY ISLAMIC STATES THAT ARE GOVERNED BY RADICAL MUSLIMS, WHO KILL ANYONE WHO'S NOT LIKE THEM.
In other words, all these Palestinian rallies and protests are not at all about any Israeli policies or "APARTHEID". ALL OF THOSE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT ISRAEL ARE LIES. THOSE THINGS ARE JUST AN EXCUSE FOR OTHER IGNORANT PEOPLE WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ISRAEL TO JOIN THEM IN THREATENING ISRAEL'S EXISTENCE. ALL THESE PALESTINIAN RALLIES ARE PROPAGANDA TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK THAT ISRAEL IS THE VILLAIN THAT IS OPPRESSING PALESTINIANS, WHEN REALLY, THEIR MISSION AND THE MISSION OF BASICALLY ALL RADICAL MUSLIMS IS TO , CHAS V'SHALOM, WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE MAP AND KILL ALL JEWS.
There was once a professor who went to speak about Israel at a college campus. At the end of his speech, a Muslim student asked the professor a question, wanting to know why he said that the Muslim Student Association is linked to Hamas, which is actually a true fact. So he answered her with a question: "Will you condemn Hamas?". And she answered that she couldn't condemn Hamas, but she also couldn't say she supports Hamas because that would sound REALLY BAD! So he remarked to her that she obviously supports Hamas, since she didn't condemn it. Then, in order to prove that the student indeed supports Hamas, the professor told the Muslim student : "I am a Jew. And the leader of Hezbollah has said that he wishes that all the Jews will gather in Israel, so that he doesn't have to hunt us down! Are you FOR IT, OR AGAINST IT?"
To which she answered calmly and naturally into the microphone: "FOR IT."
This is an example to show that MOST MUSLIMS HATE US, THE JEWS, FOR NO GOOD REASON. The hate is so strong, because that's what they're taught, from when they're born. It's horrible, but it's the simple truth.
Now what we can do is DO THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT THESE HATERS ARE DOING. MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. JUST AS OUR ENEMIES CHASE US DOWN WITH HATE, WE SHOULD SEARCH FOR OUR FELLOW JEWS IN LOVE. THE WAY ALL THESE TERRORISTS ARE ACTING SHOULD REMIND US OF HOW GRATEFUL, LUCKY,HAPPY AND PROUD WE ARE OF BEING JEWS AND SPREADING TORAH AND MITZVOS. YES, WE ALSO HAVE FLAWS, BUT FROM SOME PEOPLE WE LEARN HOW TO ACT, AND FROM OTHERS WE LEARN HOW NOT TO ACT. THIS IS ALSO AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN, AND TO BE A SHINING EXAMPLE AS PEOPLE, AND AS JEWS.
Moshiach Now!!
