GAZA PROTEST IN NEW YORK CITY
Hundreds of Palestinians and their supporters gathered at Columbus Circle for a rally and march to the UN - gathering to criticize the Israeli government for what they believe is a disproportionate response to the rockets fired from Gaza by Hamas. Rokets that some of them claim are non-lethal - no more than fireworks to get the world's attention. To them it's no longer an issue of just stopping the civilian casualties in Gaza. They want to end the Israeli blockade. Some of them go further - saying that Israel does not have the right to exist. Israel says if Hamas stops firing missiles Israel will stop retaliating. Many at the rally respond by saying if Israel ends its control of Gaza - Hamas will stop firing.
