Australian protestors burn Israeli flag at Sydney protest
Thousands of demonstrators flocked to Sydney's Town Hall Saturday to protest Israel's lethal raid on a flotilla headed for Gaza last week, DPA reported.
An Israeli flag was burnt as demonstrators mostly from Sydney's large Turkish and Lebanese communities railed against the Jewish state.
Huseyin Erbis, 28, told Australia's AAP news agency that Israel deserved international censure for the blockade of Gaza and its effect on Palestinians.
"They criticise the Muslims but really our prophet was always kind to the Jewish people," he said.
The Sydney protest was replicated in cities around Australia.
