At a time when the world is denouncing Israel’s atrocities towards the people of Gaza, Zionists converge in their capital announcing their intentions to urge their government to continue their genocidal rampage. If these people are not monsters, then what are they?

Around 10,000 Israelis poured into downtown Tel Aviv late Thursday, calling on the government and the army to end Palestinian rocket attacks from Gaza once and for all.
It was the first major demonstration in Israel since the country went to war against Hamas on July 8, launching a punishing air campaign followed by a ground offensive designed to stop rocket attacks and destroy attack tunnels.
Organizers said the rally united people across Israel’s often bitter divides of left and right-wing, as well as religious and secular Jewish communities.
Alon Davidi, mayor of the southern town of Sderot, told the rally there must be a solution – be it political or military – to 14 years of rocket attacks.
“I have full confidence in the government and in the army, but at the same time I ask as mayor of Sderot that they put an end to this situation once and for all,” Davidi said.
“Finish the job!” he said. “This is a universal principle. We want to live in peace,” he added.
Police said that around 10,000 people attended the rally in Rabin Square.
