LONDON (Ma'an) -- Almost 20,000 Palestine supporters from all over the UK marched Saturday from the prime minister's residence at Downing Street to the Israeli embassy where they observed a minute's silence for the innocent victims of Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

The pro-Palestine demonstration was the largest in recent history and reminiscent of the millions demonstrating against the war on Iraq.

"Speakers during the rally were shouting their anger, singers sang for Gaza, and there was a very moving minute of silence for Gaza during which many people sobbed," one of the protestors told Ma'an.

Helicopters, she added, did not deter anybody from speaking and "we will be back every Saturday for the foreseeable future; tens of thousands of us will not stop until Gaza's siege is lifted and Palestinians begin to taste freedom."

And we will not stop until Palestinians stop attacking Jews. The question therefore, is who will stop first. Think about that the next time you tell your kids that Jews are apes and pigs!

So good to see that so many in British people are standing in solidarity with the Palestinians. We are aware that at least 100 British 'lone soldiers' have joined the IDF, but our government doesn't mind that, because it's not against British law to join a foreign army. Of course, the IDF, in addition to being the most moral army in the world, is also the Israeli state army (unlike those terrorist groups in Syria & Iraq, that British jihadists are also going to join). True Democracy in action!!!

Jews are people who follow the Torah, Israel goes against all Jewish values. Most Israelis are secular anyway and don't practice Judaism.

Israel is occupying Palestinian land and killing children, woman and innocent civilians...This failed "state" of Israel is nothing but a terrorist regime imposing Holocaust like horror on Palestinians.

The problem is that Israel is the aggressor holding Palestinians captive in their own land. It therefore Is the Palestinians who are defending themselves from Israeli attacks and aggression.

If Hamas hadn't been firing thousands of rockets and mortars into Israel over the last decade, if they hadn't been receiving weapons by sea, and if they hadn't continuously sent terrorist commando raids into Israel, NOT A SINGLE RESIDENT OF GAZA WOULD BE DEAD OR INJURED today, not one. Only Hamas is to blame for the carnage in Gaza, nobody else. The citizens of Gaza should help the IDF remove the Hamas scourge.

To The Innocent #1: 'And we will not stop...' So you say. However, you'll stop when international public opinion has rendered Israel a pariah and it transpires that ten million people cannot subsist in isolation in a strip of semi-desert half the size of San Bernardino county. So continue. You're digging your own grave. You go right ahead.
