The theme for the planned "March of Return" protest will be a massive burning of Israeli flags, the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reported on Twitter on Saturday. 
 
The March of Return committee for the eastern part of the Gaza strip announced that the move will be in retaliation for the "Zionist flag" being raised in some Arab capitals recently. 
 
It may be that PIC is referring to the participation of some Israeli businessman in the workshop sponsored by the US in Bahrain as well as the visit of Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz to Abu Dhabi earlier this month.
