South African Rallies 12000 strong for Israel
The most amazing rally for Israel just took place in South Africa. Whites and blacks, Jews, and non-Jews gathered, 12,000 strong, in the largest pro-Israel rally ever on the continent to convey a message of love and support for the beleaguered and globally denigrated Jewish state.
Waving Israeli flags, wearing Israeli flags, speaker after speaker expressed his or her love and gratitude to the soldiers and the people for being on the front lines— which means that Jews elsewhere can live in dignity. "Thank you for protecting our Holy Land," "We owe you a great debt," "We feel each bullet, each loss," "Israel we are with you." Black Africans—Ethiopians, Cameroonians, Nigerians, and South Africans said, one after the other, "We are praying for you Israel," "Africa loves Israel," May God bless Israel."
One cannot view this video without feeling hope, love—and gratitude. The rally was a sea of people, an organic, living being, whose hearts beat as one. "African stands with Israel."
Please watch this video. It will uplift and inspire you.
