Trump to lead Israel parade.

Donald Trump will be grand marshal of the 40th annual Salute to Israel Parade, taking place May 23 on New York's Fifth Avenue from 57th Street to 79th Street, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Judy Kaufthal, the parade president announced today.

"Israel has gone through a lot and it's my honor," Trump said.

"We are especially honored to have Donald Trump as the grand marshal of the Salute to Israel Parade," Kaufthal said. "That he has chosen to take a public stand for Israel sends a powerful and welcome message."

The Salute to Israel Parade is the largest single gathering in support of the State of Israel and this year's parade will be the largest ever. The 2004 parade theme, "Israel, I care and I'm going ... Let's go to Israel now!" is intended to encourage tourism to Israel. For one day, 100,000 costumed marchers with colorful props will transform Fifth Avenue into a living pageant of beautiful and inviting Israel, as close to I million spectators cheer the 40 parade floats, 16 marching bands and dozens of entertainers.

Already regarded as a brilliant developer and real estate and mogul, Trump recently gained newfound attention and millions of fans worldwide for starring in "The Apprentice," a TV reality show on NBC, which proved a smashing success.
