Hundreds Protest Conflict In The Middle East
Last Updated: 08-12-06 at 6:16 PM
Thousands of people across the country took part in marches to protest what is happening in the Middle East.
One of those protests happened in San Diego in the middle of Balboa Park Saturday.
Carrying signs, one reading "long live Hezbollah," San Diegans demanded someone listen.
"We're here because we're outraged about the genocide taking place against Palestinians and the Lebanese people," one protester said.
Police estimated about 300 people marched across the Laurel Street bridge protesting what they call the ongoing Israeli war against the people of Lebanon funded by the United States.
"We want the U.S. out," said Yousef Abudayyeh of the Arab Americans Association of San Diego. "Want to stop aid to Israel, it's a shame this money is used to kill people."
"I cannot support the bombings but I understand their frustration with our western government," said D'Ann Paton, who was protesting Israel's actions. "And if this group's Goliath, these counter protestors represent David."
"The U.S. needs to support Israel, not just Israel's fight," said Eric Bogomolny, who supports U.S. and Israel. "It's also our fight."
"Want to stop aid to Israel, it's a shame this money is used to kill people."
unless,of course we can use their dead bodies for public realtions
I want all Muslim terrorist out.
Tomorrow they will be protesting the tides and phases of the moon.
Anyone listening to someone carrying a "Long Live Hezbollah" sign should be subject to Hezbollah's tactics themselves. Send a Kaytusha rocket to their crib and see if they still chant "Long Live Hezbollah".
