|'Colombia supports dialogue.' The guy's subtext: Don't recognize a Palestinian state.|
|'No to terrorist Israel.'|
The supporters of Israel and Palestine today waved their respective flags and chanted. But I saw one banner calling Israel a 'terrorist state' - not a good way to start out negotiations.
On the positive side, the twin demonstrations coexisted peacefully. Hopefully, one day soon the Israeli and Palestinian states can do the same.
