    Pro-Palestinians protest at Israeli bank in NY


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     hansheps, a New York attorney, was walking on 5th Avenue Friday afternoon when he came across an anti-Israel protest outside the Israeli Bank IDB and saw the fake blood spattered on the building. The iReporter has family and friends in Israel and says the scene at the bank "was definitely disturbing. I'm totally OK with people expressing opinions in a peaceful manner, but this kind of activity, regardless of your stance one way or the other, creates chaos and unrest and people are trying to go about their day and it's not acceptable."
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Pro-Palestinian supporters clashed with Israelis outside the Israeli Bank IDB on 5th Avenue on Friday, July 25th. Fake blood had been splattered on the windows of the bank and fliers decrying United States support of Israel's mission in Gaza covered the ground.
