Ever notice sweet friends, that at Israel rallies and parades, American flags are held high…and at Muzlim rallies American flags are burned?
Just askin.

    this is mighty powerful stuff!

    sometimes, good people just do the right thing…mostly because we cannot count on the bad people to do it…

  2. Incognito says:

    Great to see this!! Thank God for the Israelis, if not who knows what would happen to that region.

    Not only are American Flags flown high, but women are respected and admired for their accomplishments for & to the Jewish State. There was a lovely float in honor of the volunteers to the ALYN home for handicapped children, run entirely by young and senior women.
    May GOD bless the Jewish state and grant it the coming years of SHALOM.

    thank you

    I checked the News every now and again this weekend and I saw NOTHING about this of course!

    Thank You Angel for posting this! Without you, most of us would have never known about it.

    ISRAEL :-)

  8. Debbie says:

    We need to see more of this! Israel needs our support.

    I’m partial to the picture of the puppy, how cute!

  9. Gayle says:

    Thanks for the post, Angel. I’m pretty sure this parade offends Muslims. GREAT! :)

  10. KKarLLmM says:

    And not one arrest!!!!!!
    what a surprise…people that represent the ultimate in what is right about Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Godliness…congregate 250,000+ people together and not one act of violence..
    Perhaps there is a lesson here..
    that most do not want to learn….what a shame..

  11. Urban Infidel says:

    Great pics! Excellent job.
    I was there too. Just wonderful. Can’t wait until next year.

    I’ve got tons of pics of parade goers and moonbats at my blog.

  12. ZionistYoungster says:

    Beautiful! What a contrast this is to the Muslim/moonbat protests, which ooze hatred, destruction, derangement and unhingedness.

  13. Dapoppins says:

    Being from small town North West, we don’t have such awesome things here! And looks like you had the perfect weather for it too!

  14. cube says:

    I heart Israel too.

    Time To Circle The Wagons…

    I want to bring to your attention the nature of two different battle-fronts in which America is currently embroiled: and some thoughts on how they are inter-related.

    One is the threatening encroachment of an Islamic Caliphate, of Muslim intoleranc…..

  16. Layla says:

    This is a wonderful post hun! I am so happy to see all this support for Israel! Israel deserves our support and that of the rest of the world. Beautiful pictures too! :)

  17. TJ's Anti-Contrarian Blog says:

    I would have expected some Mooselimb counter-protesters wearing faux suicide belts for this one.

    Quite a contrast from the gay pride parades that Rudi joined. At least no one took off their clothes or wore drag (that we know of).

  18. spree says:

    yeah!!!! Now this is what I like to see, GREAT post!

  19. Angel says:

    thanks one and all for the sweet additons!! ;)

  20. Perri Nelson says:

    Awesome post and photos Angel!

  21. Freedom Now says:

    Urban Infidel captured a picture of a protester against the Parade holding up a sign that says, “Every Supporter of Israel is an Enemy Combatant”.

    Fighting ignorant violence by terrorists who have made such tactics a reality is not oppression, it is self defense.

    How can Western socialists and liberals associate themselves with such false propaganda?

    Ooooh, I wish I could have been there. Thank you woman for sharing this.

    I stand with Irael!

    It’s hard to miss!

    Great post, and thanks Angel, for I’ve heard nary a peep from our ‘unbiased’ MSM!

    I need to contact Milton Kaplan, who I spoke to. I lost his e mail address and website. Can you supply it. It is about a Ten Commandments flag for next year.
