On June 13, a group of Zionist motorcycle bikers will start their journey from London to Jerusalem. On that day of June 13, the day when in 1967, the USSR demanded the UN to punish Israel for its victory over the Arab armies which were committed to destroy the Jewish state, the Ride4Solidarity (R4S) bikers will ride out of London.
Coming from diverse backgrounds, bikers from Romania, Hungary, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Israel and the US, united by their love for the State of Israel, will cross Europe with their national flags and the Israeli flag flying high, up on their motorcycles. 14 bikers, women and men, Christians and Jews, brought together by me, crossing 7000 km in 11 countries and 1 sea, are riding together in support for Israel.
They will stop at the WWII death camps Dachau (Germany) and Mauthausen-Gusen (Austria), for mourning and paying respect to the memory of the Holocaust victims and also remember and honor the memory of victims of terrorist attacks and their families.
However, the ride is celebrating life: is celebrating the State of Israel, a miracle that turned to be, with the support of our friends, the greatest achievement of the Jewish People: a country that, despite all obstacles and threats, is a beacon of light, freedom, stability and progress, for the entire World, in the tormented Middle East.
Reaching Israel at the beginning of July, The R4S bikers will join the Maccabiah teams, bringing to Israel greetings from the communities each one represents. The bikers will carry the Maccabiah torch from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and will be part of the opening ceremony of the Maccabiah, scheduled to take place on July 6th, on Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem.
