Volunteers Paint the Country Blue and White
Dozens of members of the Zionist Council in Israel stood at 30 intersections across the country on Thursday and Friday, distributing blue and white ribbons and bumper stickers with the phrase, “together we will win.”
“We stand with the security forces and IDF soldiers on guard throughout the country, who are working day and night to keep us safe,” Head of the World Zionist Organization’s (WZO) Department for Activities in Israel and the Fight Against Anti-Semitism Yakov Hagoel stated Friday.
“I call upon Arab leaders to stop the murderous witch hunt and condemn all terrorist actions or other harm to innocent civilians,” he added.
Volunteers stood at major intersections in Kiryat Bialik, Hatzor, Ariel, Dimona, Yokneam, Kiryat Motzkin, Tirat Hakarmel, Afula, Or Akiva, Nazareth, Akko (Acre), Herzliya, Kfar Saba, Petah Tikva, Elkana, Karnei Shomron, Beit El, Ma’ale Adumim, the Jordan Valley, Beit Shemesh, Rehovot, the Yavne Regional Council, Kiryat Malachi, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Sderot, Jerusalem, Nes Ziona and Mazkeret Batya.
“In the past month, the State of Israel has suffered under radical violence, during which the Jewish masses are slaughtered for no reason,” Director General of the Zionist Council in Israel, Yigal Brand, said.
“Many citizens are afraid to continue their daily routines, and are forced to live under constant fear of terror, for themselves and for their relatives, just in leading their normal lives.”
“We cannot give terrorists the free license to continue to attack us and our way of life, and we need to continue with the hope and belief that our strength is in our unity.”
