Warsaw - Some 100 people protested outside the Israeli embassy in Warsaw on Monday, calling for an end to 'killing civilians' after three days of airstrikes in the Gaza Strip.
'What's happening in Gaza now is not a war against Hamas, it's a genocide against a people who've been kept imprisoned for the past two years,' said a Palestinian protester who declined to give his name. 'They're bombing mosques. They're bombing hospitals. Is this democracy?'
Chanting 'Long live Palestine,' and 'Stop Israeli Terrorism,' the protestors waved Palestinian flags and carried signs saying, 'Stop the Holocaust in Gaza.'
'We're against the massacre in Gaza,' said Omar Faris, of an association promoting Polish-Palestinian relations. 'The people who were victims of Hitler are now his best students.'
