CAIRO - Thousands of Egyptians took to the streets on Friday to push their military rulers to do more to help Palestinians following the overthrow of the country's president Hosni Mubarak.

Many Egyptians felt Mubarak, a US ally, was too soft on Israel and want their new government to take a much stronger pro-Palestinian stand.

The gatherings in Cairo, Alexandria and El-Arish come amidst preparations by activists to organize a march to the Gaza Strip on Sunday, May 15 -- which Palestinians mark as the anniversary of their 1948 displacement following the establishment of Israel.

Egyptian authorities have banned the march, saying the timing was inappropriate given sectarian tensions in Egypt.
