Over 1,000 rally in support for Israel amid Paris peace summit
More than a thousand people rallied in support for Israel outside the Jewish state's embassy in Paris on Sunday as foreign ministers from dozens of nations gathered for a Middle East peace parley in the French capital.

According to Israel Radio, Israeli and Jewish leaders present at the demonstration included Israeli Ambassador to France Aliza Bin-Noun and Francis Kalifat, the president of the French-Jewish umbrella organization CRIF.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has condemned the peace conference as "futile," charging that it was organized in coordination between France and the Palestinians and would further the two sides from direct negotiations on ending their decades-old conflict.
