Anti-Israel protest: Week 7

This week started like most others, I arrived just after noon but this time I left my flag in the car, there was a new tent I wanted to check this out before I began my counterprotest. The tent was for a bridal event that had nothing to do with what was going on just outside.

Week 7 104

So I went  to get my flag and started taking pictures.

They went to work blocking my shots and hiding my flag behind their signs.

I took to walking around with the Kids following me, telling passersby that this is how Hamas uses children to attack Israel.

They didn't like that, but not one adult came to take their place.

Week 7 093 Week 7 090 Week 7 088

This is clearly an escalation of a tactic they have been using for the last couple of weeks. Sending the kids to provoke a reaction, I can't wait to see what next week brings.

PS I didn't do a head count, but I think under 50 would be a fair count.
