Thousands of people in Rome, Paris, and Madrid came together to show their support for Israel this past Sunday. With so many terror attacks happening throughout Israel, many people want to let all of Israel know that they are hoping for tolerance and peace and an end to the terror.Demonstrators lined the streets waving Israeli flags and holding signs reading “Together with Israel,” reports The Times of Israel.
The rally, organized by the local Jewish community with the support of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities and other groups, included representatives from both wings of the political spectrum.
“In the media there is constant misinformation about what is happening in Israel,” Israel’s ambassador to Italy, Naor Gilon, said at the event. “But we will win because our country is strong and determined.”
“Israel has a right to exist. When we do not recognize the right of a country to defend itself against attacks with a knife, gun, and cars being rammed into people, it is the same as not recognizing its legitimacy,” said Sacha Reingewirtz, the president of the Union of French Jewish students.
