About 700 people turned out in New York City on Sunday for a reading of names of Israeli terror victims. The rally took place a day before the Republican Convention is to open in the city. Volunteers held aloft photos of nearly 1,000 victims of terrorism as their names were read out. Survivors of terrorist attacks and families who lost loved ones joined top Jewish community representatives and Israeli diplomats in addressing the crowd afterwards. The event ended with a song by pop duo Evan and Jaron dedicated to victims of terrorism, called “Isn’t it time we cared?”
