Israel Day Parade faces Jewish anti-Israel protesters

NEW YORK (AP) — Marchers in the Israel Day Parade up Fifth Avenue faced some dissonant spectators: Orthodox Jews who don’t believe Israel should exist.

Standing near them at Sunday’s celebration were other Orthodox men heckling gay marchers while hoisting signs that read: “Judaism considers male homosexuality a sin worse than murder.”

But mostly, New York’s annual celebration of Israel was greeted by tens of thousands of spectators devoted to the Jewish state. As usual, security was especially tight for a parade that is a potential terrorist target, as are other prominent Jewish venues in New York City.

The anti-Israel protesters are members of a group that calls for a dismantling of the Jewish state. They believe Jews are forbidden to have their own state until the coming of their messiah.


The conservative feels safe and content only if he is assured that some higher wisdom watches and supervises change, only if he knows that some authority is charged with keeping the change "orderly.

Nope, the most Jewish Jews of all Jews, sticking exactly to the Torah.
