Thousands of Indonesian Muslims demonstrated in Jakarta against Israel’s military actions in the Gaza Strip. Some of the demonstrators at Sunday’s rally, held outside the U.S. Embassy, held posters with pictures of Sheik Ahmed Yassin, a Muslim cleric and Hamas leader Israel killed in 2004, Reuters reported. Late last week, Muslims in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Turkey also rallied against Israel’s actions in Gaza.
