Israeli assaults bring Gazan factions together + Gaza protests

Israeli officials have been repeating that the assault on Gaza is targeting Hamas, but Hamas’ military wing is not the only group battling Israeli troops.

The offensive may have united Palestinian resistance inside the Gaza Strip, but as Al Jazeera’s Roza Ibragimova reports, no other regional forces have joined them yet.

Inside Story: Gaza protests


Protests against Israel’s offensive in Gaza have been taking place around the world, in the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Counter demonstrations by members of the Jewish diaspora have also been taking place in New York and some European cities.

Are such protests and rallies useful or useless? Will such demonstrations of public feelings and frustrations have any impact on the political and diplomatic stances their countries take in their dealings with Israel and actions and votes in the Arab League, European Union and United Nations?

Can any parallels be drawn between these protests and rallies and the anti-war demonstrations in 2003 relating to Iraq and 2001 relating to Afghanistan? Despite vocal opposition, US-led allied forces went ahead with their offensive regardless. Can taking to the streets make any difference this time round?
