Tel Aviv rally draws 250,000

Sunday, August 14, 2005 | 
All day Thursday, anti-pullout activists spoke with people on the streets of Tel Aviv, answering questions and giving firsthand information about the Gush Katif communities and the people who live in them. With youthful enthusiasm, groups of teenagers walked down the streets singing "Everybody knows that Tel Aviv is orange," to the tune of the old Beatles' classic, "Yellow Submarine." At the end of the day, tens of thousands of people gathered in Rabin Square where they listened to various leaders and got their marching orders for next week, when the pullout is scheduled to take place. "Though everything appears to be finalized, nothing is actually sealed," Rabbi Yigal Kaminetsky of Gush Katif, told the crowd. "In one moment, with the help of Heaven, things can turn for the good. That is the story of the Jewish people throughout history."
