A “Walk for Israel” rally in Naperville, Illinois, was disrupted by violent protesters from the “Naperville Protest for Palestine” Sunday. Naperville Police Department allegedly told the pro-Israel group to go home due to safety concerns, as the pro-Palestinian protesters stopped cars, physically attacked the pro-Israel demonstrators, and burned a stolen Israeli flag before.

Naperville is a suburb of Chicago and is ranked the wealthiest city in the Midwest, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The “Walk for Israel” was organized by high school junior Talia Raab on May 13, and days later the “Naperville March for Palestine” was created in response.

According to Talia’s brother, Daniel Raab, about 50 people came to support Israel, while according to Officer Michaus Williams of the Naperville Police Department, including the pro-Palestinian group, 600 to 700 people were present in total to protest.

Talia said, “With the recent events taking place in Israel and the rise of antisemitism in America, I was tired of feeling like a sitting duck watching all of these things unfold.” Talia decided to create a walk to support Israel in her hometown.
