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.

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.
