New violence in Israel and West Bank
Berlin pro-Gaza rally Potsdamerplatß
I was biking to meet a friend here in Berlin and passed through the big square ( a central location). I passed a street barrier and saw dozens of police cars and realized I was coming upon a pro-Gaza rally. All of the megaphone speaking was In German (clearly Palestinian guys speaking into the microphones) so I didn't get to understand that , but some signs were in English and were very strongly worded. One had a very graphic image of Netanyahu looking like a demon with a Star of David on his forehead, looming over a child. Mostly there were just a lot of people sort of milling about and then the few shouters atop a car. Many Arabic/German-speaking young people all around with kefiah scarves and many flags. I'd say hundreds of police just waiting around the surrounding blocked off streets in case anything happened.
