June 1st protest in Central Park

Over 25,000 people are expected to gather in New York's Central Park to protest the US Mid-East road map proposal.

The demonstration is being coordinated by The Israel Concert in The Park Committee and the National Council of Young Israel.

The protest, which urges President Bush and Prime Minister Sharon to "say no to a PLO terror state"is scheduled for June 1 at 3 p.m.

Ronn Torossian, spokesperson for the demonstration, told the Jerusalem Post that the program will be dedicated to the Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.

Torossian stated that honorary guests will include a number of New York elected officials and
leaders of the American Jewish community.

"As New Yorkers, we feel the need to stand up and let the world know on the 55th year of the Anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel that we will not sit silent as the Jewish homeland is in danger," said Dr. Joseph Frager, organizer of The Israel Concert in the Park.
