San Francisco-- Chanting "Stop Bombing Gaza", "Stop Bombing Children", "Stop Bombing Hospitals", a thousand protesters marched from Market and Montgomery to the Federal Building this morning, demanding that Israel halt its invasion of Gaza. A small delegation attempted to enter the Federal Building to deliver a message asking the US government to stop supporting the Israeli military.
Well over five hundred have been killed so far in the Israeli bombing and invasion of Gaza. Israeli planes and tanks pounded Gaza again today, and Israel vowed to continue the campaign as its forces pushed deep into Gaza City. President Bush spoke out for the first time about the Israeli military offensive, claiming that Israel was "justified" in its ongoing massacre of Palestinians, but that he was "concerned" about the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Gaza.
