Over 10,000 protest Gaza action in Sakhnin

Palestinian protest (Sakhnin)Over 10,000 people demonstrated against Operation Cast Lead in the Arab town of Sakhnin on Saturday, waving Palestinian flags and calling on Israel end its action in the Gaza Strip. According to organizers, this was the largest protest held by the Israeli-Arab sector in many years.

The protest opened with a minute of silence, in memory of the Palestinians who have been killed in Gaza by the military since the operation began. It was attended by many Arab Knesset members including Muhammad Barakei (Hadash) and Jamal Zahalka (Balad), as well as Arab mayors and other public officials from the Arab sector. Zahalka demanded that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi be tried in an international tribunal for what he called “war crimes in Gaza”.

Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman said “The demonstration in Sakhnin in which ten thousand protestors are participating proves that their loyalty is to Hamas and to those who want to destroy Israel,”
