11. SOUNDBITE (English) Father Michael Harper, Orthodox Christian priest:
“I think that one of the temptations, for both Israelis and for Palestinians, is to give up hope, and therefore to resort to more and more violence. I think we have to live in hope that there will be justice for the Palestinian people, that they will have their state, and will be able to stand tall in the world, alongside and at peace with Israel.”

“We think actually Sharon is just copying what (British Prime Minister Tony) Blair and (US President George) Bush have done in Afghanistan: powerful countries feeling they can go into countries which have had years of war and destruction. And we think that Blair should end the sale of arms to Israel until Israel withdraws from the Occupied Territories.”

Thousand of pro-Palestinian and anti-Israeli demonstrators marched in central London on Saturday, calling for an end to Israeli aggression and the foundation of a Palestinian state.

Police said about 12-thousand people joined the march from Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square, where a rally was held at the foot of Nelson’s Column. The march organisers said the number was as high as 50-thousand people

Black balloons were released from the crowd in Trafalgar Square to mark “al-Naqba”, Arabic for “The Catastrophe”, as Palestinians call the anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel in 1948.
