The 21st Annual Israel Day Concert in Central Park will be held next Sunday in New York, delivering a strong message of support for Israel.

Arutz Sheva managing editor Ari Soffer got a chance to speak with Dr. Paul Brody in New York. Brody, along with his wife Drora, are chairpersons of the concert. 

Brody noted that the concert aims to deliver several messages, primary among them that "Jerusalem is ours, meaning it's part of Eretz Yisrael (the land of Israel), it will remain undivided lanetzah, forever."

Another message of the concert, which was founded 21 years ago as a response to the Oslo Accords, is to declare the resolution "not to give up one inch" of the land of Israel, including Judea and Samaria. 

The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement is another topic the concert intends to stand up against. Brody noted that three groups supporting BDS are marching in the Israel Day Parade, a fact that has led several groups to boycott the parade.

Finally, the concert is meant to express firm opposition to the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran.

US Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), a potential Republican presidential candidate for the 2016 elections and staunch supporter of Israel, is slated to speak at the concert, along with former United Nations (UN) Ambassador John Bolton, Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon, and other senior figures.
