Today Israeli Leftist groups organized a march for solidarity with Palestine, with the goal of promoting two states for two peoples. Several thousand people participated, despite the scorching heat, marching from Jaffa Gate to Sheikh Jarrah. Most of the participants were Jewish Israelis, though there was a definite Arab presence there too.
Marching past the mosque in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, a controversial area and the site of weekly (albeit smaller) demonstrations.
A Fox News correspondent broadcasting from the march. As I took this picture, one of the other demonstrators came over and muttered “‘Fair and Balanced'” at me sarcastically. I laughed – but still, one point to their credit for covering this story.
Small right-wing counter demonstration next to the rally at the end of the march. The police separated the two crowds so there were no violent confrontations.
More pictures tomorrow.
