WOW! I've never seen pics of such a big crowd since the protests in Egypt!
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

A fraction of the crowd.
Police didn't let photograph by helicopter.
It spanned over a square mile of streets.

if over a square mile, then it could definitely be over 600,000 people

Cant wait till american one ;D

Hopefully there will be hat racks @ the American version, unlike the Israeli version where hats were hanged on banner wood poles held by hand.

+1
As long as we don't have blizzard conditions. They definitely have the weather advantage over us for a great turnout.

it may have been a very wide lens, or they had to piece together several images due to spread out over 180 degrees...
(Like chabad Kinus picture.) Also, maybe the colored specs are the women? Or this was just the men march?

I read in the Yated as well as in other places, that nothing is really slated to take affect until 2017, and Gafni and the other MK's know that (and by then there will be new elections, and anything can happen then...). In fact, I understand that anyone can now join the workforce for the next few years even without army service, as opposed to before where you needed to have been in the army to get a good job. So its really not an issue now at all for the next few years. I understand the point of the protest and the statement they made, but just wondering if there are there any ramifications of the law right now?

The photos toward the end of this link are from VERY high up.
If they can estimate that this is only a tenth of the crowd in one city at one time, then it could very well be over 600,000:
Good photos: http://collive.com/show_news.rtx?id=29292&alias=jerusalem-closed-off-for-protest
Wow! Awesome pics! Ya it's definitely hundreds of thousands!! I guess we'll never know exactly how many ppl there were. Either way I think it was a huge kiddush hshem!!!!
