WE WON, THIS TIME !!!!

I am posting this as a follow-up to an earlier post about the World Gay Pride Events planned for our Beloved Yisrael. I realize that the dates for these events is now behind us, but I felt someone should take the time to pointout that, WE WON !!

I pulled a "GIDEON" and "slipped" into the enemy camp to get their take on the outcome of our struggle, and this is what "the other side" is saying.

San Francisco resident Julie Dorf, one of two North American co-chairs for WorldPride who plans to attend the event, said the cancellation of the parade had more to do with the "massive" level of opposition from conservative politicians and religious leaders in Israel who plan to hold several counterdemonstrations against WorldPride, taxing the local police's ability to staff the week's worth of events and rallies.
"The right-wing opposition has mobilized so many people against us that the Jerusalem police are not sufficient to staff the size of the march they anticipate in opposition to WorldPride. The organizers of the opposition march are calling for a million people," said Dorf, an executive at Horizons Foundation and a founder and past executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. "We are expecting only 20,000 on our side, so they are going to outnumber us in a major way. I say that not to scare people but this is unprecedented in gay and lesbian history. This is not crazy Fred Phelps with a few big signs. It is very orchestrated, public antigay demonstrations in Jerusalem."

From their own leadership, we read here that they were overwhelmed by the opposition !! However, it doesn't stop here !! They also make it clear that they intend to try again at a later date. I post this information to encourage all those who fought so long and hard to prevent these ABOMINATIONS from taking place in our HOLY JERUSALEM, that their fight was not in vain, and that this time, we've WON !!

Now, we must determine to continue the struggle until they realize that, WE WILL NOT EVER TOLERATE THESE EVENTS IN OUR BELOVED JERUSALEM !!

WE MUST NOT STOP HERE, WE MUST CONTINUE the RIGHTEOUS STRUGGLE for the SANCTITY OF HOLY JERUSALEM !!
May HaShem give us the VICTORY !!!

wonderful post Elaine! But these guys will try again, so the fight is not over. But, as you said, G-d DID grant us a semi-victory -- thank G0d.
All the best, Tamar
