    Only a question of time before we see half page Advertisements in the media from the Progressives condemning Israels right to defend it self, I’m sure they are passing the hat around right now..

    I am very angry about the rally which was held in Sydney on Sunday.
    Why were we hiding inside like cowards?
    Israeli’s are being hit from left, right and center and we are sitting inside a Synagogue.

    The Sydney Jewish community had the opportunity to be heard and we failed miserably.
    I would like to see another rally in Hyde Park.
    I would like to see all of us with placards “STOP THE ROCKETS INTO ISRAEL”
    We look like bloody wimps. We are not winning the propaganda war and we need to step up for Israel!!
    We would of course liaise with the police force to ensure our safety.

    And another thing…….. !!!
    My husband and I also attended the BDS rally outside Max Brenner at Parramatta on Thursday.
    Where was everyone???
    Various issued statements not to go because it had turned from a BDS rally into a Palestinian V Israel rally and it was going to be violent……….
    There were about 100 BDS protesters and if it wouldn’t have been for the Australian Protectionist party turning up we would have been by all by ourselves there!!!
    What the hell is going on?? Is the Australian Jewish Community, Missing In Action???

    We should be organised, We should be visible. We should be vocal and we should be peaceful.
    If you don’t start getting something going in this city I will do it myself because we have been silent for too long!!

    Shame you woke up Michael. Then I suppose all good things must come to an end.

    Today’s Solidarity Rally in Sydney was a disgrace. I and many, many others are ashamed

    It’s a shame that the ZCNSW didn’t have the guts to have the Rally where we could stand up and be counted.

    As if Barracluff Park wasn’t bad enough, we were then moved into the Mizrachi synagogue to hide on the pretext of ‘security’.

    What a cop out. It’s a disgrace. I and so many other people are furious and for this very reason many
    didn’t attend.
    Many left early, including myself, after a person stood up and made the comment how disgraceful it was that we were hiding.

    Why are we hiding?

    What are we afraid of?

    We should be standing proud and tall. Not cowering and acting as if we had something to hide.

    This rally should be held again, in Hyde Park. The pro-Palestinian groups are holding a massive demonstration next Saturday and bringing the City (Sydney) to a halt. They have nothing to be proud of, backing a terrorist regime. Their version of the truth will be broadcast loud and clear over the airways and ours will be nowhere.

    We can hold out heads high, we are on the side of truth, so why are we hiding.?
