Some Photos from Israel Peace Rally last Wednesday

The rally for solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Israel saw an impressive showing of people, Jews and non-Jews alike. The rally opened at Sather Gate with a spirited performance by the UC Men's Octet. Then everyone walked together to the middle of Sproul Plaza, as they sang "Od Yavo Shalom Aleinu" ("Peace will Soon be Upon Us"). The rally continued with yells of "Israel Wants Peace!" and the singing of Hebrew songs, even as an anti-Israel rally on the steps of Sproul Hall spewed hatred and lies against Israel. As we continued to celebrate with unbridled positive energy, however, it soon became clear that this other rally was not going to ruin our moods.
