A range of organizations, Saturday, held a march in Jerusalem to call an end to 48 years of the 1967 occupation.

Among the organizers was the Coalition of Women for Peace.

Spokeswoman Mayaan Dak told PNN:

"We do this every year. It is important as we are facing a lot of house demolitions, violence and racism towards Palestinians here in Jerusalem."

The group of demonstrators, mostly Israeli , marched from Zion Square to New Gate. Among them were Neta and Elad, two students from Jerusalem who joined the march because they have had enough of the ongoing discrimination and violence towards Palestinians in the city.

Arab Member of Knesset for Haddash, Ayman Odeh, was among the speakers in front of New Gate. He said:


"You cannot find one Palestinian family who hasn't been subjected to violence. Not one family, who hasn't missed their imprisoned loved ones. Occupation is brutal, even to its conquerors. I am asking the fathers of the soldiers to think about their sons and daughters. Think of how they might enter the bedroom of a little boy tonight and arrest him just for being a Palestinian."

The crowd was heard to yell: "Settlers and soldiers, get out of Palestine!"

The demonstration ended around 10 pm.

IMEMC - is just another biased and one-sided Arab Nationalist PR web site.

Look at the articles posted on it, and see that it is not different from Electronic Intifada and other sites distributing Islamic Dawah cr#p on the Internet.

Jordan occupied the West Bank in 1948 and fully annexed it in 1950. The West Bank was part of Jordan till 1967.

"IMEMC - is just another biased and one-sided Arab Nationalist PR web site."

The article is about an Israeli march demonstrating opposition to what its government is doing. So what is this comment about? Is it a way of saying that the march didn't happen and that no Israelis are opposing the actions of their government?
