The local Jewish community leadership thought that it would be a great idea to gather in the main square of the city and wave Israeli flags just as the IAF was dropping bombs and white phosphorous on the heads of the people of Gaza. I spoke with a few of these 'peace' protesters and suggested that their actions were not helpful and indeed totally out of sync with the views of so many of the population of the city. I wouldn't wish ill on these 'peace protesters' but they should realise that they were provocative, stupid and self harming. Thankfully, there were many Jewish people gathered in sympathy for the plight of the Palestinian people.
