Posted on 07/26/2014 11:30:09 PM PDT by Loud Mime
Thousands of protesters were marching through downtown Chicago on Sunday in support of Palestinians as Israeli forces continue a ground invasion in the Gaza Strip.
Protesters were carrying Palestinian flags and signs reading Save Gaza's children and chanting Free, free Palestine.
Salam Khatib, 19, of Valparaiso, Ind., participated in the march with seven of her family members.
"We just hope people will expand their knowledge of what's going on in Palestine," she said. "It just doesn't make sense to me."
Protesters made their way west along Upper Wacker Drive, turned south on State Street and then continued west along Madison Street before stopping outside a bank between Canal and Clinton streets, where speakers addressed the marchers.
Mohamad Nasir, vice chair of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago, spoke to the crowd outside the bank on Madison.

Chicago - the epicenter of the world’s biggest problems.
Hate to look for little things, but it says Sunday, that is tomorrow
My thoughts exactly! I watched a demonstration in my downtown some years ago by muzzies and screamed out the same expression. Some people around me were surprised at my outburst. I was saddened at the lack of a response from fellow citizens.
And these morons brought their children who were dressed up like little suicide bombers..these people breed like roaches thats the problem
well, Hamas firing 400+ rockets a day at Israel doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, either. Neither does Hamas barricading civilians in their homes so they can be blown up make a lot of sense.
‘Tell it to Hamas’, you protestors, and you’ll maybe get your damned peace. Ball ‘s in THEIR court.
ZOMBIES needs a new definition..
There be zombies out there..
Usually democrats but not always..
What makes a person GLAD for high energy prices.?.
AND tolerant of a death cult.?.
It might elicit a different response today after so many years of Mr. Obama and his depredations such as the child invasion, IRS, Benghazi, V.A. scandal, NSA, etc...
I hate Illinois Nazis.
The bozos in Chicago don’t have anything better to do? This is the problem with a nanny state. Too many morons and maggots with too much free time on their hands.
They should support “Palestine” by moving there and joining the battle.
Was FairyKhan there too?
The pic is from last Sunday. I read somewhere it was only hundreds, not thousands, that is unconfirmed but not surprising, the lying media always jack up the stats!
These crazy people should worry about their own backyard. More have been shot on the streets of Chicago this year than on the streets of Gaza City.
The story is a week old, from 7-20-14
If the Palestinians laid down their guns, there would be...peace.
If the Israelis laid down their guns, there would be...what?
Where are Al Capone and his boys when you really need them?
America has made a huge mistake allowing ANY muslim migration . They are a plague , no matter what country them come from . It’s not too late to rectify this error , but soon it will be . We need a leadership that sees the danger and acknowledges the threat to the American way and has the courage and the boldness to take the appropriate measures. This will occur
after our present complacency allows them to nuke one or more of our cities. This will happen , and we will then owe to those we have lost to permanently solve the problem.
Too bad it has to come to that but for now America seems to be either asleep or on narcotic drugs. It will take something sda and huge to wake us up and to throw off the yoke we have allowed to smother us. The clock is ticking.....
I wonder how much each was paid.
Exactly often overlooked is the fact that many third worlders,muzzies, mexicons, africons, central americons, you name it All breed like maggots.Thus assuring we will be minorities in a generation or two at the very least.Sad days to come.
Brainwashed minions. If you took away those under thirty there would be no one there. Its more of a social event than anything else.I bet if you asked half of them why they were there they wouldn’t have a clue. Little more than towing the company(Islam) line.
When the Tea Party held a rally in Stuart Florida a few years ago obammy had his henchmen take film of each and every one at it.
I’d bet the farm that kind of shit didn’t get done with these pali supporting morons.
Evil, scum sucking dirt bag, POS brainwashed minions. Would you say that is a little more accurate?
The cesspool who gave us most of the despicable charactors running America today
Yep, the mindless, shambling dead who are always seeking to spread the virus by tearing into the innocent and the unwary.
Note last name of “The Trib’s” reporter. These people just don’t pop out of nowhere, they’re organized. Bet the local Immans mostly from Chicago’s southwest suburbs were busy but was unmentioned (ahem -”covered”) in this report.
What she fails to understand.
Islam vs Freedom
Islam vs Christianity/Israel
Freedom comes from God...that should tell us it’s not the same God for both.
There should be a law that green cards and especially illegals will be charged with a felony for protesting for anything. Immediate deportation.
