Brussels: Muslim protest

10,000 people demonstrated yesterday in Brussels against the Lebanon war. The protest was organized by the "Alliance for Dignity and Freedom". The mostly Arab protesters included also members of the Arab European League and some people had come from the Netherlands and France to join the protest.

The protesters called out against Israel as well as the United Nations and the European Union, which they claim is not doing enough to stop the violence. To underscore their abhorrence of violence they also waved Hizballah flags and pictures of Nasrallah.
