Together4Israel, an organization which is seeking to highlight the plight of those who are caught up in the daily terrorist attacks on Israel, are hoping to attract over a million visitors to their online rally tonight (11pm Israel, 9pm GMT, 5pm EST). The gathering is being held in commemoration of the days of Purim (or 'the lot'), in which Jews stood together throughout the Persian empire to defend themselves and their families from attack, after letters were published by wicked Haman calling for their complete destruction. Those who visit the Together4Israel website at the above times will be able to watch live footage from solidarity rallies at the Western Wall, Britain, France, Australia, Brazil and the United States. Guest speakers will include former Israeli Cabinet Minister and founder of the One Jerusalem organization Natan Sharansky, United Kingdom Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks, holocaust survivor and Nobel prize winner Elie Wiesel and Director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles Marvin Hier.
As the nations of the world continue to press for the division and re-division of God's land, promising less and less land for the Jewish people on every occasion, and as Israeli civilians continue to come under terrorist attack and the threat of annihilation from their Arab and Muslim neighbours, let us stand up to the Ahmadinejad's of this world and be counted. Let us all become Jews for one night. We may not be able to prevent prophecy from being fulfilled, but as Mordechai said to Queen Esther so long ago, who knows whether we are come into the kingdom for such a time as this? (Esther 4:14). Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
