Thousands of protestors prayed against the Israeli disengagement plan in Jerusalem. Protesters, including rabbis, held a two-hour “pray-in” outside government buildings Monday, Ha’aretz reported. Meanwhile, a settlers’ sit-down strike near the Knesset entered its seventh day Monday. The protests show a new grass-roots strategy by protesters, who have exhausted political means of stopping withdrawal, according to Ha’aretz.
