It is highly likely that an anti-Israel protest is being planned for the same time and location. A large turnout is expected as has been the trend at other Pro-Israel rallies across the country. There have been more than 50 anti-Israel rallies across the country since Operation Protective Edge began on July 8, some of which have been marked by hostile verbal altercations between pro and anti-Israel activists.

There will be a large police presence to provide security at the site, but we recommend all of our community members observe the following guidelines at the rally:
• Do not engage with protesters - no one should speak to or respond in any way no matter how strong the provocation.
• Be on alert for any behavior that seems out of the ordinary, extreme, suspicious or hostile – and report it to police, security personnel or rally organizers immediately.
• Refrain from bringing bags and other items to the rally. Similarly, if you see any suspicious packages or strange devices, report it to the police or security personnel.
• When traveling to and from the rally, try to stay within a group of people rather than alone.
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow, rain or shine.
