A small but vocal crowd demonstrated for Israel in Berlin. The estimated 1,000 demonstrators marched last Friday through some of the city’s busiest streets during rush hour. Addressing the marchers, both Jews and non-Jews, Gideon Joffe, president of the Berlin Jewish community, said Jews join with Muslims and Christians in mourning the civilian dead and abhorring the suffering of innocent people in Israel and Lebanon. But he called on Muslims in Germany to condemn the terrorist acts of Hezbollah.
