Photo Essay: Rally in NYC Against US Funding of Israeli Terror

Photos from New York City, one of many cities that protested today against the bombings in Gaza. In a rally that began at the United Nations building, 4,000 marched to the News Corporation head quarters against media lies. News Corp is home to Rupert Murdoch’s NY Post, FOX News,  and Wall Street Journal.

As usual, mainstream American media was widely absent in a rally calling for media transparency. CBS local news was present and drummed up a West Side Story sort of battle, reporting pro-Israel and pro-Palestine protesters both calling for a truce. CBS reporter Jessica Schneider fails to make notice of the size of pro-Israel protesters which quickly disintegrated. It was apparent that the protest was largely a rally against the murder and settlement of Palestine.

53 people were killed in Gaza on Tuesday, July 8, 2014. Among those killed, 13 were aged 16 or younger. The youngest victim, 18-month-old Mohammed Malakiyeh, was killed along with his 27-year-old mother. The oldest victim, 80-year-old Naifeh Farjallah, was killed in an air strike on the town of Moghraqa, southwest of Gaza City.

The single deadliest strike killed eight people Tuesday in southern Gaza when Israel bombed the Hamad family home.
