Following last month’s Boston rally and yesterday’s rally in Los Angeles, the JCRC in New York City will host a rally this Monday:

SUPPORT ISRAEL RALLY
Monday, July 17 at 12:00 Noon
Rally against terror and in solidarity with the government and people of Israel.
Across from the United Nations, First Avenue at 42nd Street.

I’m asking honestly here: does this sort of thing really make the people of Israel feel supported? Safer? Calmer? How much of the rally is for world change and how much for people talking to themselves? Will a large turnout at noon on a Monday indicate something to the world that wasn’t already said?
