Thousands took part in a Jerusalem demonstration calling for Israel to withdraw from the Gaza Strip. “Listen to the majority of the public: Bring Israel home,” Israel’s former military chief of staff, Amnon Lipkin-Shahak, told a crowd of about 3,000 outside Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s official residence Saturday night. Some of the demonstrators, who had marched through the capital, were encouraged to sign a petition endorsing the “Geneva accord,” an unofficial Israeli-Palestinian peace proposal.
