The rally was organized by the 'SOS Israel' under the banner of praying for a unified Jerusalem. Protestors read psalms and carried signs, several of which warned that Bush and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert were "bringing another Holocaust."

 

One demonstrator was detained for displaying a fake gun.

 

"The struggles for the other settlements will be ten-fold what there was in Amona. It is good to die for our country," said SOS Israel chairman Rabbi Dov Wolpe, echoing the reputed last words of legendary Zionist activist Joseph Trumpeldor.

 

"It won’t do Bush and Olmert any good – one land for one nation."

Some protestors held posters depicting Bush, Olmert and President Shimon Peres wearing kaffiyahs (Muslim headdress), with the words "terror abettors" written on them.

 

"There is talk of President Bush's vision of two states for two peoples - may the all-merciful protect us," Wolpe said. "On the day after his election President Peres said we must cede the territories. If the president of the United States would have said after his inauguration that Seattle and Manhattan should be handed over, what would (the American public) call him?"

 

"A traitor," the demonstrators shouted back.

 

Wolpe continued to say that "only the coming of the messiah can save us, not the High Court (of Justice), which is collaborating with the Arabs."

 

Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, founder of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem, read from a letter he intends to pass on to Bush: "We expect you to order the immediate release of Jonathan Pollard prior to your return to the US."
