Stand With Israel Solidarity Rally Thursday and Friday

From our friends at StandWithUs/San Francisco Voice for Israel

Stand with Israel
This Thursday 5- 6 PM
This Friday, 4- 5 PM,
456 Montgomery Street San Francisco (the Israeli
Consulate building)

Over 1,000,000 Israelis are in bomb shelters right now. More than 150
rockets (and counting) have been fired into Southern Israel from Gaza
so far this week. School is canceled, and life has come to a
standstill. The brave men and women of the IDF are acting to protect
their fellow citizens against Hamas rockets.

Israelis aren't the only ones suffering as a result of Hamas' decision
to continue launching rockets against Israel. Even though the IDF
takes more precautions to safeguard civilians than any other army in
the world, Palestinian civilians living under Hamas rule will
invariably suffer as well-- and their suffering will be cynically
manipulated by the other side that sees Palestinian casualties as just
another weapon in the war of public opinion against Israel.

And right now, around the world, anti-Israel groups, whether Islamist
or secular, are organizing to take to the streets to try to put public
pressure on Israel to stop defending itself. To these haters, Hamas
rockets fired at schools in Sderot and Beersheva are "legitimate
resistance"; but Israeli pinpoint operations to eliminate those
responsible for the terror are "massacres".
San Francisco will be one of the front lines for these hate groups.
They will be holding their "Palestine will be free from the river to
the sea" demonstration, almost certainly with Hamas flags, in front of
the building that houses the Israeli Consulate on Friday afternoon.
StandWithUs/SF Voice for Israel will be there to counter their lies.

On Friday, we will bring Israeli and American flags and signs in support of Israel. If you are coming on Thursday, please bring your own. If you want to make your own, we highly recommend these, which can be printed at any copy shop with a large format printer:

Please do not bring signs or graphics offensive to
any racial or ethnic group including but not limited
to Arabs, Islam, or Palestinians. Signs in violation
of our policies will not be allowed.

This is the chance for our community to stand together in support of
Israel and its right to defend its citizens from rocket attacks.
Because this is a highly newsworthy event, we anticipate that there
will be TV and other media there. Let's show the haters that the
pro-Israel community in the Bay Area stands proudly with Israel.

Check the  Facebook event page for any new developments

Not in San Francisco?
Not a problem.  There are anti-Israel rallies scheduled nationwide.  These so called "peace groups"
were silent when 130 rockets rained down on Israeli children- they are only speaking up because Israel dares to defend herself.  Please help organize a counter rally in your community.  Need help? Contact me, and  I'll get you started.
