Yesterday's demo and the consulate was inspiring: so many people, many of them children with their families. The authorities had no choice but to let us take the street! I should know better than to even consult the mainstream media... but I tuned in to KOFY's report once we finally made it home. The called us "anti-Israel," accused us of "mob-like" behavior (we were chanting), and interviewed a "Pro-Israel" woman who said that we had no idea about the historical context of the current bombing raids on Gaza....ridiculous.
