As Abu Mazen was travelling to New York City for the UN General Assembly opening, getting the media spotlight, tens of thousands of people were marching through the Jerusalem, Israel streets. The annual Jerusalem March was been held since 1955, during Sukkot, in celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles.
This year tourists came from Australia and Austria,
and a delegation from Angola.
They came from Senegal, Russia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone,
and one man from Gabon.
These women you can bet were happier to be in Jerusalem, than shopping back home in Kenya. They got lots of extra special hugs from the crowd.
US, Canada, Italy, Great Britain, Indonesia, Boliva,
and Poland, well just a few, but Peru and Hungary were there too.
There were many smiling Chinese marching,
but not near the group with “Taiwan Loves Israel” banner.
Maori from far away Down Under had a banner,
this one from Denmark, “Israel, you’re not alone!”
Chinese held a large banner, “From the Great Wall to Wailing Wall.”
There was no shortage of Israeli flags,
or colorful costumes,
or Stars of David.
Thousands of flags and smiling people lined the streets of Jerusalem, Israel,
as 60,000 participants from 70 countries came for this ever growing event.
One HUGE International BDS Fail!
Fiji, Slovakia, Germany, Netherlands…even smiling supporters from Norway,
way too many countries to share in one post,
