In Praise of Extraordinary Activists By: Phyllis Chesler
Pajamas Media | Wednesday, May 06, 2009

My esteemed colleague, Caroline B. Glick, recently penned an article for the Jewish Press in which she praised individual American Jewish grassroots activists as “extraordinary Jews,” who, on their own, and without any support from larger Jewish organizations have, one by one, been ensuring that strong pro-Israel views are being heard in America. Glick views these individuals as “part of a growing (volunteer) army of individual Jews throughout the U.S. who are moved to act by their conviction that Israel must be defended against the expanding alliance of the international Left and the forces of global jihad.”

And now, let us praise (and continue to praise) those extraordinary grassroots civilians who organized yesterday’s rally in Times Square against Radical Islam and those 300-500 people who came and stood in the driving rain to listen to the words of Sikhs, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and Christians, direct and indirect victims of Islamic terrorism, enslavement, and persecution, who came together to stand against a common global enemy.

As I’ve written before: This is precisely the kind of “civilian army” that is needed, that is immune from cheap totalitarian charges of “racism,” that is, potentially, a model for world governments (India, Israel, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, the European Union, the United States, for starters,) who have not yet found ways to unite against jihad.

The Human Rights Coalition Against Radical Islam has a website where you may find the names of yesterday’s speakers and the profoundly impressive list of co-sponsoring organizations.
