A peaceful pro-Israel rally took place in Chicago today with around 500 people attending, waving their flags in front of the Israeli Consulate, singing songs and praying. Of course the terrorist supporters could not let people fly Israeli flags without antagonizing, so approximately 100 Jew haters held their own demonstration across the street.
One of our readers, David Makowsky, was at the scene taking pictures. Published with permission, here is his account of the day, along with the photos he took and posted on his Facebook page:
“I am currently at a Pro Israel rally in Downtown Chicago. Mostly singing, speeches to come (I think)
“No threats to murder Muslims, no violence against Muslims, no burning Muslim businesses (and there are some in the area), etc…
“… I just got back from the rally supporting Israel in downtown Chicago. As I mentioned before, there was no violence, no shouts of ‘death to …’
“This was a joyous occasion as opposed to what our ‘cousins’ have been engaging in around the world.
“Here are some photos of the good guys from the event.”
