Video: Facing an Anti-Israel Rally in Chicago

On Friday afternoon, I joined a group of about 150 people in downtown Chicago to show solidarity with the State of Israel in this time of crisis.

We faced a much larger, much angrier group of protesters waving Palestinian, Hamas, and Hezbollah flags, marching up and down the street with fake coffins, burning Israeli flags, and chanting incendiary slogans.  Despite efforts by this group to initiate a confrontation, we remained calm, determined, rational, and level-headed.  The difference in behavior between our two groups was night and day.

CBS News Chicago covered the event and has footage here.  You may notice yours truly in the final moments of the report.
