On Saturday afternoon, Nov. 17, 2012, the ANSWER Coalition, a national-based Peace & Justice group, staged a demonstration at Baltimore's Inner Harbor (McKeldin Square). It targeted Israel as a result of its recent bombings of Gaza, its assassination of a Hamas leader, and [at press time] its planned invasion of the Gaza Strip. Israel claims it has a "right to defend itself." Sharing their views at the rally on the issue of the Israel/Gaza clash were Andrew Castro of the ANSWER Coalition and activist Zahi Khamis. The latter is a native of Palestine. To learn more, go to: http://www.ifamericansknew.org/history/
