Thousands across Israel protest violence, incitement



Thousands of people took part in rallies across Israel to protest Thursday's stabbing attack at Jerusalem's Gay Pride parade and the West Bank arson attack in which an 18-month-old Palestinian infant was killed.

Nasser Dawabsheh, the uncle of the infant burned to death in the West Bank village of Douma, said at a rally in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square: "Netanyahu offers his condolences, but we ask the defense minister and the IDF to restore security in the village of Douma and in all Palestinian villages… we want this to be the end of the suffering of our people. Before Ali there was Mohammed Abu Khdeir, and we don't know who will be next. We want the fires to end."

"Flames have engulfed our country," President Reuven Rivlin said at the rally in Jerusalem's Zion Square. "Flames of vuilence, flames of hatred, flames of a false, distorted and twisted beliefs. Flames which permit the shedding of blood, in the name of the Torah, in the name of the law, in the name of morality, in the name of a love for the land of Israel. "

It's good to see the people who want to live in peace with each other regardless of religion or sexuality come together and voice their disagreements with what''s going on. Nasser Dawabsheh is right it is the duty of the IDF to protect the people they are occupying it is international law. Opposition leader and Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog is also right terrorist should be treated and charged as terrorist be they Jewish or Muslim to do otherwise just shows that Israel is not a Democracy.
