SAVE THE DATE – TUESDAY, SEPT.28, 2-5 P.M., Across from the Israeli Consulate, Second Avenue between 42nd-43rd Streets, New York City

Hundreds of Israelis will be joining AFSI and all groups concerned with the preservation of a whole Israel to speak against extending the construction freeze, and for the end of appeasement and give-aways of land and security in the Jewish homeland. While Israel’s holiest places are threatened- Jerusalem, Hebron, Judea and Samaria, and while Arabs build without constraint throughout the Galilee, the Negev, in Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria, Israel’s very existence is at stake.

The hosting of Iran’s Ahmadinejad at the United Arab Nations underscores the west’s inability to take the Iranian nuclear threat seriously. Israel, the country most immediately threatened with extermination by Iran, has critical decisions to make. Its leaders must know that Americans are with them.

During the Sukkot holiday, when we live and eat in fragile booths to commemorate the exodus from Egypt and the embrace of freedom in the promised land, let us speak with one voice in support of our beloved inheritance. It’s time for us to say – “here I am” – when asked, “where are you?”
