Nearly 100 protesters gathered outside the US embassy in Tel Aviv Sunday under the banner "we won't commit suicide."

The protest, taking place while US President Barack Obama addressed the AIPAC conference in Washington, was billed as a response to the president's speech Thursday in which he called for peace negotiations based on 1967 lines.

While many of the protesters were angry with Obama, a sizable number voiced their opposition to any concessions to the Palestinians, specifically borders, the division of Jerusalem and the return of Palestinian refugees.

Before breaking out into the Israeli national anthem, the crowd waved nooses in the air, chanting, "Obama, Israel will not commit suicide."
