Pride, but controversy at Israeli Independence Parade, Rally, and Concert in New York City

Zionistic Americans celebrate Israel's Independence and the American-Israel relationship with the Israel Day Concert (with a Message) in New York's Central Park. The event follows the Israel Day Parade up Fifth Avenue held annually on the first Sunday in June.  Enjoy JooTube's coverage of the Parade held 2012.

The parade clips feature a variety of groups marching in the parade, including the Jewish War Veterans and the controversial, pro-Boycott Israel pressure-groups marching under the New Israel Fund banner. We catch-up  with Peter Beinart marching in the parade.
