A thousand demonstrate against Operation Cast Lead in Rabin Square

Over a thousand people were demonstrating against the IDF's Operation Cast Lead at Tel Aviv's Rabin Square on Saturday evening. In response, about 600 activists gathered in the same place to show support for the army and for residents of the South. Witnesses told the Jerusalem Post that many of the demonstrators were wearing Kaffyiehs and waving combined Israeli-Palestinian flags. Protestors in support of the operation, who organized a counter-demonstration upon learning of the planned event, were heard chanting "IDF, we are with you!"
