November 16, 2012

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

    WHEN:                   Sunday November 18, 2012

    WHERE:                   In front of the Los Angeles Federal
                            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).
