This antisemitic hate march was organized by American Muslims for Palestine (AMP). Here is the good news. Despite the massive levels of pro-Palestinian propaganda from the Left, only a little over a few hundred annihilationists showed up to the hatefest. Contrary to what we see in the mainstream media and on social media, the American people support the Jewish state of Israel.
And if you can, please contribute to Geller Report. YOU make the work possible.
At time of rising antisemitism in the US, a hate group is holding a "National March for Palestine" in Washington DC. This isn't about supporting Palestinian rights, it's about promoting hate. Urge your elected officials to condemn AMP's march. Take action: https://t.co/kwLLPEZO3o pic.twitter.com/KSPz2TcsMD

Pro-Palestinian rally in Washington seeks end to US aid to Israel
More than 1,000 demonstrate on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial as ceasefire between Israel and Gaza terror groups holds
More than 1,000 rallied Saturday in Washington in support of Palestinians and calling for an end to US aid to Israel.
The demonstration on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial came as a ceasefire that ended 11 days of intense fighting between Israel and the terror group Hamas in the Gaza Strip has so far held.
“We are hoping to send a clear message to the United States government that the days of supporting the Israeli state without repercussions are over,” one of the demonstrators, 39-year-old Washington lawyer Sharif Silmi, said as he stood in the crowd where many protesters held red, white, green and black Palestinian flags.
“We will stand against any politician that continues to fund weapons to Israel. We will oppose them, we will vote against them, we will fund their opponents, until we vote them out of office,” said Silmi.
Lama Alahmad, a resident of neighboring Virginia who is of Palestinian origin, said US public opinion is turning in favor of the Palestinian cause.
“There is a huge change” going on in the US with regard to the Palestinian cause seeking a sovereign homeland, said Alahmad.
“We just want the world to recognize that we are human beings. We are not terrorists,” said Alahmad, a 43-year-old stay-at-home mother who grew up in the United Arab Emirates before moving to the US around 20 years ago.
Silmi insisted there was now broad opposition in the US to how Israel treats the Palestinians, which he likened to apartheid in South Africa.
“People have now woken up, and we’re resisting. Whether young Jews, young Muslims, young Blacks, young whites, there is a generational shift. And people are working across ethnic groups, racial groups, to work for change and freedom and liberation for Palestinian people,” Silmi said.
The 11-day war began with Hamas firing rockets at Jerusalem, followed by towns in the south of Israel and the Tel Aviv area. Israeli retaliatory airstrikes on targets in the Strip killed some 250 people, including 66 minors, according to the Hamas-run health ministry, which does not differentiate between terror group members and civilians. Twelve people were killed in Israel, all but one of them civilians, including a 5-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl.
Israel has said the majority of those killed were terror operatives and insists it did everything to avoid civilian casualties while fighting armed groups deeply embedded in populated areas.
