Solidarity Palestine Gaza Protest, Israeli Embassy. London. 31st December 2008.

On the fifth day of the Israeli assault against the population of Gaza, people gather at the Israeli embassy to voice their growing anger over the barbarism now being meted out to the defenceless Gazan civilian population.

The protesters chant hostile phrases and burn the Israeli flag repeatedly outside the embassy.

Police take a more relaxed approach to the crowd in marked contrast to an earlier protest outside the embassy on Sunday 28th December.

The protest comes as international pressure is dismissed by the Israelis who have now made clear their intention to bring about the destruction of democratic HAMAS and the political infanticide of their fledgling Middle-Eastern democracy.
