    As President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu met at the White House Monday afternoon, about 200 protesters demostrated against the potential bombing of Iran by Israel.


    Protesters met a12:30pm in front of the White House but were quickly told to take the protest to Lafayette Park. At the same time another group of protesters demanding 'Human rights for Vietnam' also happened to be at Lafayette park. After a few minutes of sorting things out the demonstrators from several groups such as: Code Pink, Occupy DC, True Torah Jews, and others, started chanting against Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit to the White House.


    The demonstration lasted about 2 hours and ended with Palestinian women dancing and chanting for a 'Free Palestine'.
