In a show of patriotism, identity, solidarity and concern stemming from the raging global jihad, thousands of pro-Israel supporters from all walks of life are participating in vigils and rallies for Israel all over the world as the Jewish State continues its war against Hamas.

In Paris, approximately 12,000 demonstrators waved Israeli flags and sang Jewish songs near the Israeli embassy on Sunday, according to the CRIF, an umbrella organization for French Jewish groups.

Also on Sunday, 600 Jewish and other Australians converged on the steps of Parliament to condemn Hamas and support Israel's war on the terror organization, which has seized total political and military control of the Gaza region.

Several demonstrations of support have also taken place throughout the United States, including a 500-person rally in Tucson, Arizona on Sunday, and a rally in Sarasota, Florida featuring former U.S. Justice Department Prosecutor John Loftus.

Many more rallies will be attended by Israel-supporters throughout the United States and Canada in the coming days, as Israel continues its efforts to weed out the rocket-wielding jihadists who have attacked Israeli civilians in the past several years with thousands of rockets and mortars.

Some of the demonstrations, with local times, include:
