Yes and no. Yes the police put more pressure on pro-Israel activists during these rallies, because they know how agitated and violent the pro-Palestinian groups can be. Israel-supporters will respect police authority, while leftist and Islamist activists do not.

No: the NYPD and US authorities help pro-Israel groups by exposing the underground Islamist networks that fund terrorism and sponsor these anti-Israel protests.
