Pro Israel Rally in Copley Square

Though bitter cold out, there were still plenty of people (+1000?). Spirits were pretty up, too. Lots of signs driving home the fact that Israel has a right to defend herself, that Hamas were terrorists who target civilians. (My favorite read "Israeli Self Defense is a Mitzvah.")

The other side numbered perhaps a couple hundred tops and seemed to be comprised mainly of dyspeptic-looking Cambridge UU types. Lots of signs about "stopping genocide."

In all, a very positive thing to run into on the way home.

So are we supporting Israel's right to exist or it's right to ignore the Geneva Conventions while attacking it's neighbors?

Both sides need to seriously separate the issues here.
