On Sunday, August 17, from 3:45 to 7PM, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) will be hosting a rally in New York City’s Union Square from 3:45 to 7PM. Speakers from a huge variety of backgrounds will stand for Israel and all the minority populations worldwide that are threatened by the global jihad.
Speakers will include AFDI President Pamela Geller; AFDI Vice President and Jihad Watch director Robert Spencer; Sudanese freedom activist Simon Deng; Ashraf Ramelah, the head of Voice of the Copts; Mark Arabo, a leader of the Chaldean American community; Israeli scholar Mordechai Kedar, and a host of other representing the populations around the world that face the greatest threat today from Islamic jihad violence and supremacism. Also invited are Indian, Yazidi, Kurdish, Sikh, Assyrian and Buddhist leaders.
AFDI’s Geller said in a statement: “Israel is on the front lines of the global jihad, and we stand resolutely and proudly with her. We must also remember that the same jihad that threatens Israel threatens free people around the world. That’s why we are featuring speakers from groups from around the world – people who have experienced the horror of Islamic jihad firsthand. We need to unite and stand together for freedom.”
