A groups of Orthodox Jews in New York protested ‘’Israel Day Parade’’ and Israel government in New York’s most famous street Fifth Avenue, standing near the marchers at the street, where police took extensive security measures.

Nearly 30,000 Israeli Jews marched for the traditional Israel Day Parade in New York city.

While the celebrations were going on, a group of anti-Israel Orthodox Jews began to chante slogans against Israeli goverment waving Palestinian flags.  

Rabbi Dovid Feldman, an anti-Israel jew, said ‘’The presence of Israel is ‘disgrace’ for us. A state established by the ones who hate from God and religion will never represent us.’’

‘’This country, has existed for 67 years, is a country which is indeed far from religion and God and founded for the sake of national and pecuniary advantage, said Feldmean.

“Morever, it is not possible to talk on our behalf after what they did to Palestine.’’

Verbal squabbling came out between the marchers and Orthodox Jews at times during the protest, during which no incident reported.

In July and August 2014, Israel launched the 51-day ‘Operation Protective Edge’ in Gaza Strip and killed more than 2,100 people, including mostly women and children and injured other 11,000.

Violations by the Israeli forces and their blockage in the Gaza Strip continue even after a truce agreement was signed between Hamas and the State of Israel on August 26 last year.
