We Stand with Israel

So remember what I said about those yellow roses that Americans were giving to Israeli PM Netanyahu to show their support? Well, they've been delivered! Yay!

From the Jerusalem Post:
Some 20,000 flowers donated by American Christians and Jews who were upset by the reportedly poor treatment that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu received in the White House last month will be distributed on Remembrance Day.

Jerusalem florist Richard Kovler allocated the flowers on Sunday to army units, Border Police and organizations helping victims of terror, for memorial ceremonies that will be held Monday across the country.

“It’s a nice gesture of friendship at a time of bereavement to let Israelis know that Americans care about them,” Kovler said.

More than 2,100 dozen roses, totaling more than 25,000 flowers, were donated in a campaign led by US radio host Janet Porter’s Faith2action organization. About 6,000 flowers were distributed to Jerusalem hospitals on April 11, and one bouquet of 100 flowers was symbolically given to Netanyahu.

I was amazed when I read how many individual flowers there were. According to the ordering link, there have been 2,368 bouquets of a dozen roses each. By my math... let's see... 2, 368 times 12... if all of those bouquets have been delivered, then that comes out to about 28,416 roses.


You know something, Barack? We support Israel.

Deal with it.
