Manchester united as 2,000 pro-Israel supporters set to attend rally today

    Around 2,000 pro-Israel activists are set to show their support at a national rally on Sunday.

    The “Say No To Terror: Say Yes To Peace” rally, organised by North West Friends of Israel (NWFOI), will take place at 2pm at the Palace Theatre in south Manchester, which organisers expect to fill.

    NWFOI co-chair Anthony Dennison said that once the location of the venue was released on Friday, bookings for the event “came through thick and fast” despite it clashing with a Manchester United match.

    The event, originally named “Say No To Terror: Stand With Israel,” was due to take place on January 31 until the Sheridan Suite pulled out following what NWFOI said was “gross intimidation” from “the antisemitic boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.”

    Attendees from across Britain will hear speakers including Conservative Friends of Israel chairman Sir Eric Pickles, Enfield North MP Joan Ryan, Board of Deputies senior vice-president Richard Verber, and Zionist Federation chairman Paul Charney.

    The rally has also received support from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, the Jewish Leadership Council and the Israeli embassy, as well as grassroots groups around Britain.
