Jewish community organizations and youth movements worldwide were planning to demonstrate in support of Israel on Sunday, in response to the massive international criticism of Israel resulting from last week's Gaza flotilla raid.

Rallies were due to take place in Brussels, Hamburg, Los-Angeles and Miami.

Jewish youth movements were planning to demonstrate in Brussels at 5 p.m. local time, outside the Israeli consulate. An afternoon demonstration was also planned for Hamburg.   

A spokesman for the organizers, Zvika Klein of World Bnei-Akiva, told The Jerusalem Post that "all public Jewish events in Europe require police protection" and that a Paris event in support of Israel was canceled due to information regarding threats from pro-Palestinian groups.

Jewish organizations in Los-Angeles and Miami were also planning rallies and Klein expected a large turn-out.

A demonstration in support of Israel was held in Vienna on Friday.
