Dozens of leaders and heads of state from around the world descended on Paris on Sunday in solidarity with the French people after a week of bloody terror atrocities in the city.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Abbas were among those that marched alongside France’s President Hollande at a historic rally against terrorism that drew 1.5 million people, according to reports.

The silent protesters at the march waved French flags and held banners in honor of the victims of the massacre at Charlie Hebdo by an Islamist terrorist on Wednesday, and Jewish shoppers at a kosher supermarket on Friday, as well as the law enforcement officials who were killed in the attacks.

Israeli daily YNet News reported that an Elysee official quoted President Francois Hollande as telling his ministers: “Paris is today the capital of the world. Our entire country will rise up and show its best side.”

Before leaving for France on Sunday Netanyahu said “I am leaving for Paris to participate in the rally together with world leaders as part of a renewed struggle against Islamic terror, which threatens all of humanity, which I have urged for many years.”

“In the evening I will participate in a special rally with French President Francois Hollande and with the Jewish community in France,” he added. “I will say that every Jew who wants to immigrate to Israel will be welcomed here with open arms.”

    As I understand it.Our golfing parrot has some other business scheduled during this event where other world leaders are present .Maybe has eighteen holes in the grass that need a little white ball placed into them ? This critical activity comes before all else in U.S. politics .It is the sole duty of anyone who holds public office.No doubt the leaders of the other nations understand this matter and will try to carry on with their functions of paying respect to victims of terror attacks. As our nation is leader of the free world we can not find time to allow our golfing parrot to be away from his primary duties.

    This rally is a sappy, meaningless, empty and indeed, insulting gesture. Nothing more than a massive hold-hands-and-sing-“Kumba-ya” party.
