blissful slumber

Now that there is a ceasefire in place, I think we need to reflect on what we accomplished this past week:

Those massive rallies in the streets of NY, co-sponsored by every major Jewish organization, where thousands came to stand with Israel...  oh wait, I'm sorry, that was just a dream.

The civil disobedience where the FDR was closed to traffic as we marched in protest, just like the BLM rallies....  oh, sorry, that didn't happen either.

The night that we shut down the Capitol phone banks as thousands of us called at once to demand that our Representatives support Israel (I mean, even if you don't have time to attend a protest, how long does it take to make a call)...  wait a second, sorry, that too did not occur.

But we all had a great Shavuos with cheesecake and blintzes, didn't we?

  1. Here in Detroit we had a small rally last Friday. It was hastily put together.
    Not to diminish your point, but just to play devil's advocate: it's hard to organize rallies and such in a small amount of time.
