Australia: Pro-Israeli Demonstration

Thousands of Israeli supporters rallied in Sydney on Sunday, insisting Israel had a right to defend itself against terrorist suicide bombings. Jewish leaders told the emotional crowd that Israel was in the grip of a Palestinian terror campaign and it was justified to fight back. "They are seeking, openly and obviously, the demise of Israel as a Jewish state," Stephen Rothman, president of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies said. He said Palestinian suicide bombers had killed more than 90 people in the past four weeks. "We will not once more stand by while our people are murdered," Mr Rothman said. Emotional supporters chanted messages of support throughout the protest in Wynyard Park opposite Sydney's Israel consulate. Draped in Israeli Star of David flags, they clutched photographs of suicide bombing victims and carried banners saying: No reconciliation with terrorism, and Support Israel's right to survival. They listened in silence as young members of the Jewish community read out the names of those killed in recent bombing attacks.
