On Wednesday, May 3, 2006
on the 58th anniversary of the founding
of the zionist state, the day known as "Israeli
Independence Day", Orthodox Jews from
many places gathered in demonstration to
mourn, not celebrate, this bitter event
which rebels against G-d and the teachings
of the Torah.
Their grief is expressed in the wearing
of sack cloth and carrying black flags.
Demonstrations were held in New York, USA, Montreal, Canada,
Bais Shemesh, the Holy Land, London,
U.K. and elsewhere.
