It was an incredible evening – over 3,000 people attended tonight the rally at the Canada Christian College. Organized by B’nai Brith, its purpose was to express the protest of those who stand for Israel against the unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood.

The hall was completely packed, the balcony was full and despite the fact that they brought in extra chairs, there were many people who had to stand the whole time. That was a real multicultural event, with people from every race and many nationalities represented in Toronto, all of them united for a great cause.

Most of the people signed a petition in support of Israel:

Among the guests were Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism; Dr. Frank Dimant, Executive President of B’nai Brith Canada; Amir R. Gissin, Consul General of Israel in Toronto; representatives of Dalton McGuinty and Tim Hudak; Mark Adler, York MP; other guests and many Christian pastors.

The common thread in all speeches was the full support for the sovereignty of the state of Israel. It was stated that we need to take a firm stand against all the forces, which a trying to destroy Israel.

Here are some highlights from that memorable evening.

The hall is almost full half an hour before the event begins:

Jason Kenney delivers his speech. You can see his whole presentation at Blazingcatfur. I suspect that tomorrow the lefties and the Muslim fanatics would try to crucify him for it.

    Thanks! Good looking.

  3. The Lone Ranger says:

    Nice to see a cabinet minister standing up for the opnly true democracy in the Middle East. No doubt if the Liberalas were in charge, they would have condemned the meeting as a “hate rally.”

  4. SM ISAC says:

    Such outpouring love for Israel was deeply, deeply gratifying, healing and empowering. Thank you for the great photos. Pictures collectively worth million words!!

  5. Great photos and commentary…maybe you could donate some to the national Post or the Globe and Mail or the Star or…………..:)

    Actually this article would have been better! I can caption it now “Jason Kenny and friends support largest terrorist nation ever”

    I bet you JDL where doing cart wheels on this one

    A mosque in northern Israel has been torched and sprayed with graffiti, in a suspected attack by Jewish extremists.

    “Price Tag” attacks, carried out against any policy to reduce the presence of Jewish settlers and settlements on occupied Palestinian land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, have increased in recent months.

    Most happen in the West Bank, though a similar incident took place in the Arab Israeli village of Iblin last year.

    Leaving in my car with the Israeli flag while signing “Jerusalem” by Matisyahu 🙂

  8. Where are we going people? says:

    Dear God this is horrible. That actually made me cry to see how far humanity has gone. Having a Pro-Israeli rally at the exact period where thousands of Palestinian children are slaughtered everyday is simply saying you support that. Call me naive but I never thought any political/religious belief could get you that far… So Sad.

      This event took place years ago. The internet in a backward Muslim country like Mauritania must be really slow. Why are you not fighting for Hamas?
