upporters of Israel are urged to
take to the streets on Sunday, Aug.
6, to show solidarity with the State
of Israel as it fights Hezbollah, Hamas and
an increasingly heated public relations
battle.
A two-mile Israel Solidarity Walk will
begin and end at Temple Shir Shalom at
the southeast corner of Walnut Lake and
Orchard Lake roads in West Bloomfield.
At 1 p.m., participants will head south to
Orchard Mall at Maple Road before walking
back to the temple.
Mark Segel, of West Bloomfield is orga-
nizing the event in a grassroots effort to
show visible support of Israel and to call

for the release of kidnapped Israeli soldiers
Gilad Shalit, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad
Regev. Segel also brought the community
together in May for Israel Independence
Day, organizing a walk in West Bloomfield
on a different route. Some 400 marchers
responded last time and numerous com-
munity groups lent their support. He looks
for a greater turnout Sunday.
Segel attended the July 19 Israel
Solidarity Rally at Congregation Shaarey
Zedek in Southfield holding a large Israeli
flag and was pleased to see thousands rally
to Israel's defense. But, he says, the commu-
nity needs to show support regularly
"I don't think there can be enough public
relations on behalf of Israel;' Segel says.
"There is so much negative propaganda
against us that we need to present Israel
in a positive light all the time. I don't think
you can ever do enough. Israel is on the
frontline in a war for all of us as Jews and
Americans."
Segel is not deterred by the heat, nor
by the attack on the Jewish Federation in
Seattle and doesn't think such things will
prevent many people from taking part.
"Sure it will be hot, but there is some-
thing about being outdoors — it's almost
