100,000 come to Zion Square to protest Olmert's policies
A rally protesting the political and security policies of Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert brought an estimated 100,000 demonstrators to Jerusalem’s Zion Square Sunday night.There's also currently a podcast video on the webpage you can also view.
The demonstration, the largest since the government uprooted 25 Jewish communities from Gaza and northern Samaria last August, is taking place under the shadow of last week’s demolition of nine homes in Amona and the brutal police reaction to people who protested the destruction.
Banners reading “Olmert is bad for the Jews” and “Olmert is bringing about civil war” were positioned at the center of Sunday night’s demonstration.
Israel's Channel One TV also confirms the number:
