It was a patriotic crowd proudly displaying a love of freedom, for the U.S. and Israel.
Patriot Jon Voight gave an inspirational speech.
Consul General Jacob Dayan spoke as well: "We have gathered here today from all over: Democrats, Republicans, Jews, Christians, Latinos, Armenians, from the Russian community to the French community to the Iranian community…to say to Israel that: "We support you. We are behind you. We are proud of your wonderful and brave soldiers."
Aside from the Democrat remarks, Dayan's comments appeared to be spot on.
