Lots of folks were headed to Washington, D.C. this morning, to take part in a gathering to show support for Israel.

Some of the participants started with an early morning pray-in at the White House.

The contrast between supporters of Israel and the Hamas terrorist sympathizers couldn’t have been clearer.

The March for Israel turned out quite a crowd. Oh, this is glorious.
Pro-Israel demonstrators have gathered at the National Mall in mass for the “Americans March For Israel” event.
Attendance is expected to be over 100,000 by the time the event starts at 1PM. #MarchForIsrael

Amazingly, for the over 100,000 folks they estimate are attending, all you hear in the crowd is laughter and animated talking. How does that happen, huh?
The Israeli president spoke to the throngs via a video link.

Members of Congress spoke…
Here on the National Mall for a rally in support of Israel. Massive crowds. Minutes ago Rep. Ritchie Torres delivered a passionate speech, saying Israel should do to Hamas what the US did to ISIS—what the Allies did to the Nazis. pic.twitter.com/sQAdaYTKBr

…and backed the Israeli government’s decisions to do whatever they felt they needed to do to eliminate Hamas.
House Speaker Mike Johnson speaking to massive pro-Israeli crowd in DC and the National mall:
“The calls for a ceasefire are outrageous.”

Some who don’t speak so well were there anyway to show their support.

More crowd estimates are trending toward 200K with a nation-wide audience, and I have to say – the mall is packed to the gills in the middle of a workday. I also have to agree with Dave Marcus.
Social media and elite college campuses are not real life. America stands with Israel. https://t.co/gsEsc8LgQ7

Real-life America stands with Israel.
