Rally for Israeli children kidnapped by Hamas terrorists
Hey guys, I’m knackered but have three posts to put up. The first is a quick one about the massive rally in Tel Aviv that I just got back from. Rabin Square used to be the rallying point I used to go to for massive peace rallies (peace now!) for peace with the Palestinians. Well, the Palestinians, through their actions, have long since put a kibosh on any hopes for peace and those rallies are a thing of the past. We pulled out of Gaza and gave them 100% autonomous rule there — we got rockets in return. We got the furthest thing from peace: Continual rocket and mortar fire on our civilians and they infiltrated our border and killed two of our young soldiers and kidnapped Gilad Shalit, and then things went worse from there. So no, there haven’t been massive rallies for peace in Rabin Square for many years because in Gaza and in Judea and Samaria (aka the ‘West Bank’), the Palestinians have made it clear that they have no honest interest in peace.
Tonight Rabin Square was used for a much more important, in no little part because it is realistic, rallying point. Tonight, the square was filled to over-flowing with the call for the release of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel. They aren’t soldiers captured in battle; They are school children kidnapped by terrorists.
Tens of thousands of Israelis from all walks of life — secular, religious, rightists, leftists, rich and poor turned out tonight to join their voices in support of three families living a nightmare and to make a clarion call: BRING BACK OUR BOYS.
