  • "The Zionists hate this fact but it must be said: Hamas were democratically elected in internationally monitored elections that were considered fair. Unfortunately the West only supports democracy when the result goes the 'right way'.

    Did anyone see the news report of the Israelis taking chairs, BBQs, and picnics on top of the hills in Sderot and cheer the explosions in Gaza's civilian areas? The sick animals were loving it - it was bordering on sexual.

    Let's not forget, one side is an occupying power while the other is powerless.

    Israel uses sophisticated weaponry to bomb densely populated refugee camps, schools, homes, mosques and slums to attack a population that has virtually no weaponry, no command-in-control, or an Army and calls it a war. This is not war, this is murder"

HUNDREDS of people have taken to the streets of Southampton today in protest over the conflict in Gaza.

Chants of "Free Palestine" can be heard across the city centre as people make their voices heard over the ongoing crisis.

Hundreds of people have lost their lives in the conflict between Israel and Palestinians.

Daily Echo:

The Southampton demo marched from the Guildhall before ending at the BBC South headquarters.

Today’s protest saw significantly more protestors taking part in the march than a similar one on Tuesday.

Abdullah Catell, who organised the demo, said: "We are praying all the time for these people.

"We need to unite everyone, from all different political parties and faiths.

"This is not a lone protest - this is the start of a movement."
