The American Freedom Defense Initiative is a national organization in the United States which is passionate about supporting, defending and protecting freedom, democracy and liberty in the U.S. and about supporting, defending and protecting Israel as well. Through its many national and local initiatives it has become a leader in the fight to preserve American freedom, democracy and liberty and in the fight to support, defend and protect Israel too.
Yesterday in New York City AFDI sponsored a rally to support Israel and persecuted religious minorities around the world. Thousands of people attended and there were speakers representing persecuted religious minorities from all over the globe, including Christians, Jews, Yazidis, Sudanese and others. The full horror of persecution by Islamists acting in the name of Islam was brought home in stark terms, in starkly personal terms. The reality and gravity of Islamic persecution was made unmistakeably clear and so was the threat it poses to the future of humanity.
The rally was groundbreaking because it was the largest rally of its kind to date in the United States, because it brought together a coalition of the persecuted to stand together against the ongoing global Jihad which is causing so much pain, suffering, destruction and death and because it linked Islamic persecution of one minority with Islamic persecution against all minorities, which of course it is. It was far more than a pro-Israel rally…it was a pro-Israel, pro-freedom, anti-religious persecution rally against the Islamists acting in the name of Islam who are attempting to impose Islam and Islamic law, Sharia, on unbelievers everywhere and bringing pain, suffering, destruction and death with them wherever they go.
Even though thousands of people attended the rally and notwithstanding its diversity and scope the mainstream media completely ignored it, which was, is, predictable and typical. Because of its total lack of honest, objective, knowledgeable reporting and analysis the mainstream media is complicit in the global Jihad, in the persecution of religious minorities everywhere by Islamists acting in the name of Islam, in the ongoing Islamization of Western countries and in the dire threat it imposes to their existence as free, democratic, secular nations, including the United States. Because its reporting and analysis is suffused with dishonesty, ignorance, cowardice, political correctness and outright bias the mainstream media is complicit in presenting a totally false picture of Israel to the world and in prolonging, aiding and abetting the conflict in Gaza. Supporters of Israel and those who are against the global Jihad, those who are against the persecution of religious minorities by Islamists acting in the name of Islam, shouldn’t feel alone though. Even though you’d never know it if you get your news solely from the mainstream media, they’re not and millions upon millions of people around the world feel exactly as they do. In the last little while there have been huge pro-Israel rallies in places such as London, Sydney, Australia and India and support for Israel around the world remains large, strong and steadfast, even though the mainstream media has virtually ignored this reality. No, its not surprising that the mainstream media completely ignored the AFDI rally, not surprising at all.
The AFDI should be congratulated for sponsoring and leading the rally in New York. Hopefully, they’ll sponsor and lead many more as they are certainly needed and will provide a significant counterweight to Islamists and their apologists, to Jihadists and their apologists. Maybe it will even get to the point where the mainstream media won’t be able to ignore or distort them.
Good stuff, well done and keep up the good work.
