Much has been made of the nasty and perverse anti-Israel demonstration on Saturday, April 27, outside the White House Correspondents Dinner at the Hilton Hotel on Connecticut Ave in DC. The glitzy affair featured President Joe Biden hurling jabs at GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump while also offering dire warnings of the fate of democracy in America if he isn’t re-elected in November.

 First thanks to those of you who have reached out. This is not an easy letter to compose. Nevertheless, I feel compelled to share with you my observations and to explain why silence in the face of evil is not an option. Yesterday was an up day for those of us who are dual American Israeli  Citizens. It was an up day because we had the opportunity to view the coverage of a major demonstration showing support for Israel in Washington DC.

The absolute anarchy of the college campus protests has the public and politicians wondering what can be done about these universities that foster hatred for Jews, Israel, America, and Western Civilization. Obviously, people are allowed to say what they want, and are allowed to protest, but that does not mean that illegal activities such as calls for violence, vandalism, and trespassing are allowed.
