Israel's Action in Gaza Spurs Anti-Israel Rallies RULE Introduction

Posted: January 22, 2009


Introduction
January 8-19, 2009 Demonstrations
January 1-7, 2009 Demonstrations
December 30 "National Day of Action" Demonstrations
December 2008 Demonstrations

In December 2008 and January 2009, anti-Israel groups in the United States organized more than 200 demonstrations, rallies and other events in response to Israel's military action in Gaza to staunch the barrage of Hamas rockets hurled at Israeli towns and cities.

 

A coalition of groups that often unite in protest against Israel touted the protests as a response to Israel's "massacre of Palestinians." As in the past, demonstrators used these rallies to express extreme anti-Israel and anti-Zionist messages, to engage in anti-Semitic rhetoric and offensive Holocaust imagery likening Jews and Israelis to Nazis, as well as to express support for terror.

 

Many of the events were held outside Israeli embassies and consulates, U.S. federal buildings and elsewhere around the country.

 

The Anti-Defamation League, which monitors anti-Israel activity, reported on these events and issued the following report, replete with images.
