HIGHLAND PARK - Hundreds of supporters of Israel showed solidarity on the streets of Highland Park Wednesday, as travel restrictions to the country's main airport continue.
Israel's flagship airline El Al is the only carrier flying into Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport.
"I think it's very important that we don't give the terrorists, Hamas, a victory by isolating Israel," says Jeffrey Schreiber.

Ellen Berman just returned from Israel and saw the damage a rocket did to a home near the airport. "There had been some word that the Palestinians were trying to target the airport the day before I left," she says. She believes the travel ban is in effect because of the Malaysian Airlines flight that was shot down, and that the restrictions aren't necessary.
Several families with relatives serving in the Israeli military say the travel restrictions have cut them off.
Israel is asking for the ban to be lifted. Some at the rally say they hope that happens soon.
