RAMALLAH, Feb 20 (JMCC) - Dozens of Israelis protested Saturday evening in front of the United States embassy in Tel Aviv
, holding placards calling for the end of Israel
The demonstration was called after the US vetoed a United Nations security council resolution condemning Israeli settlements
on the occupied Palestinian territories
Joseph Dana at the +972 blog.
The demonstration lasted for one hour. Activists carried banners saying “Veto Settlements, Vote Justice” as well as “Stop US Supported Occupation.” No arrests or injuries were reported. Israeli activists have been targeting the United States for the past three months since the death of Bil’in protester Jawaher Abu Rahmah from American made Tear Gas. Signaling a new trend in Israeli direct action protest, activists have been pushing for international boycott of Israel under the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS). Israeli activists are also speaking more English and paying more attention to the international audience than the Israeli one.
