Shalom! Tens of thousands flood Washington, D.C., in support of Israel

Published in Blog on November 14, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Nearly 300,000 people gathered in Washington, D.C. to march for Israel on Tuesday afternoon in a powerful display of unity. 

The “March for Israel” demonstration was organized by a coalition of Jewish organizations and was intended to denounce the rising antisemitism seen across the country as the war between Israel and Hamas has continued for over a month. 

Organizers expected over 100,000 people to turn out, but reports say an estimated 290,000 people ultimately attended the rally to show solidarity for the Jewish state. Congressional leaders of both parties joined in the rally on the National Mall, rising above politics in a show of bipartisan stability for America’s ally. 

“Shalom!” cried House Democratic Leader Jeffries "We must also decisively address the cancer of anti-Semitism with the fierce urgency of now. An attack on any of us is an attack on all of us."

“The calls for a ceasefire are outrageous,” declared Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, sparking the chant, “No ceasefire!” 

Other members of the Congress joined in the rally on the National Mall, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sens. John Fetterman and Joni Ernst. 

Mayor Muriel Bowser deployed the National Guard to assist the police with heightened security. Tuesday's event comes after thousands of pro-Palestinian demonstrators protested in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 4. 

In the face of uncertainties,Convention of States President Mark Meckler recently encouraged, we must stay vigilant, informed, and prepared.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
