Hundreds of thousands flood DC to march for Israel


The post Hundreds of Thousands Flood DC to March for Israel appeared first on The Daily Signal.

WASHINGTON—Hundreds of thousands of men and women flooded the nation’s capital on Tuesday for the March for Israel and demanded the return of hostages captured by Hamas.

According to estimates from the rally’s organizers, the Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, an estimated 290,000 people attended the march in person and 250,000 more watched online.

Some of those attending the rally traveled from Israel to spread awareness about the deadly Hamas terrorist attack on Israel that took place on Oct. 7. The Daily Signal spoke with Anat Shoshany, a young woman who said that Hamas brutally killed her grandfather and kidnapped her grandmother.

Shoshany, who says she was in Tel Aviv at the time of the terrorist attack, emphasized the importance of storming heaven with prayers for the safe return of her grandmother.

“I don’t get to be sad,” she said. “I don’t get to cry. I need to fight.”

A young man who spoke with The Daily Signal said that he is a survivor of the Nova music festival attack, at which Hamas terrorists used hang gliders to enter the festival and slaughter concertgoers.

“You can’t imagine what actually happened there,” he said.

“Only God helped me there.”

Many young people attended the March for Israel. The Daily Signal observed many groups of students and families. One young man attending with his high school said that there were 500 students from his school alone attending Tuesday’s march.

Though pro-Palestinian protesters appeared to have marked up the portable restrooms with graffiti saying “Gaza” and “free Palestine,” few anti-Israel demonstrators were at the march.

One anti-Israel protester could be heard shouting “Heil Hitler” at apparently Jewish attendees. His gesture caused those around him to gasp in horror and to strongly condemn such language.

Unlike most of the pro-Palestinian or anti-Israel gatherings in Washington, New York, and other cities around the U.S., most of the March for Israel attendees did not cover their faces.

Anti-Israel demonstrators at campus protests have said that they cover their faces fearing detection by federal agencies and authorities. At one candlelight “Vigil for the Martyrs” that The Daily Signal attended at George Washington University, organizers encouraged reporters for The Daily Signal to hide their faces to avoid detection.

  1. NO ONE of any moral soul can support EVIL ISLAN that teaches the anti-Israel hate-filled scream of pro-Palestinian protestors “From the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea, Palestine will be free” — meaning “free” of Jews – JEWISH innocents slaughtered by ISLAM through the barbarian HAMAS uses the people in GAZA as human shields and cares nothing about them.
    Beheading “infidels” is a centuries-long tradition in Islam, and still used today. Islam is evil – period. NO ideology that demands the annihilation of anyone much less an entire people should be allowed to survive. ISLAM demands not only destroying Israel but killing Jews worldwide.
    The “elephant in the room,” which few have had the courage to present as FACT, is that for ISLAM “Jew-hatred” is dogma. The 114 sura (chapters) of the Koran are replete with passages of Jew-hatred. Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, met with Hitler on November 28, 1941. ISLAM supported the FINAL SOLUTION with Hitler and created the gas ovens for the “DISPOSABLE” Jewish people, gays, mentally handicapped, and anyone who got in their way.
    RISE UP, AMERICA, ad stand with ISRAEL.
    BUCK FIDEN just gave IRAN another 10 BILLION – NEVER EVER vote DEMONRAT anti-Americans – NEVER!

  2. These idiots on the left have no idea what Hitler did or wanted to do, because they don’t read or try to understand anything. They just repeat the ignorant talking points of their masters. They have no clue to what the Middle East is like, how Muslims act, or how Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. They are totally ignorant of any facts or reasoning. It’s easier to fool someone then to show someone they have been fooled.
