The Friends of the Israel Defense Force held a fancy fundraiser in Manhattan last night, but hundreds of Palestine solidarity activists gathered outside to protest.  The protest, which was co-sponsored by over 20 activist groups, including Jews Say No!Adalah-NYAmerican Jews for a Just PeaceJewish Voice for Peace, and the National Lawyers Guild NY Chapter, and was endorsed by two Palestinian groups from the village of Bil’in and four Israeli groups.

Amer Shurrab,  a Middlebury College graduate from Khan Yunis in Gaza, whose father and two brothers were killed in Operation Cast Lead, and Dorothy Zellner, founding member of Jews Say No!, join us to talk about the protests, Joe Biden's condemnation of Israeli settlement building, and more.

Thanks to Paul Park and Adalah NY for photos and video in this segment.
