Israeli Day Parade Draws Supporters and Critics Alike in New York

Under tight security, the annual Israel Day Parade took place in New York City on Sunday, with everyone from the Israeli scouts to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Israel's UN ambassador, Danny Danon, attending.

The event, which passed by Trump Tower as it made its way down Fifth Avenue, also drew pro-Palestinian counter-protesters and anti-Zionist ultra-Orthodox demonstrators.

The event was held in honor of Israel's 70th anniversary and saw scores waving Israeli flags as they marched through central Manhattan.
