Los Angeles Community Comes Together For A Solidarity Rally For State Of Israe

By Susan Duclos

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of Angelenos, Jews and non-Jews alike, who are committed to a safe, secure, and prosperous Israel will join in a solidarity rally while the State of Israel is under attack by a barrage of rockets launched by Hamas into Israel.

The rally is scheduled for Sunday November 18 at 1:00PM in front of the Los Angeles Federal Building located at 11000 Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles (the corner of Wilshire Blvd and Veteran Ave).

WHAT: Community-wide rally in front of the Los Angeles Federal Building to express support and solidarity for Israel.

WHEN: Sunday November 18, 2012 1:00PM

WHERE: In front of the Los Angeles Federal Building 11000 Wilshire Blvd Los Angeles (corner of Wilshire Blvd and Veteran Ave)

WHY: Over the past week, the Palestinian terrorist groups in Hamas-controlled Gaza have fired hundreds of rockets into Israel. Over one million Israelis - around one-eighth of the Israeli population - have been endangered and forced to repeatedly seek safety in bomb shelters. Schools have been closed. There has been a recent history of 12,000 rockets launched into Israel during the last 12 years. To finally stem these attacks, Israel has launched Operation Pillar of Defense to root out terrorist groups in Gaza. We are uniting as one community to express our solidarity for Israel and its right to defend itself and protect its citizens. The rally is being organized by StandWithUS , Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) and the Israeli Leadership Council (ILC).
