*It really has to be seen to be believed.*
Some 20 people protested Wednesday outside the American Embassy in Tel Aviv against US pressure on Israel to freeze settlement building. Some of the protesters were dressed as Native Americans in a reminder to the US authorities that their country did not exactly ask the natives where they could live or build.
The protestors carried signs emblazoned with slogans like “Three countries for three races” and “America, we understand you – understand us, too” and “Freeze building west of the Atlantic Ocean. Red-skinned American within 1492 border.”
Their feathered headdresses and colorfully painted faces attracted the attention of passersby on the beachfront promenade. As a finishing touch, the protesters released balloons decorated with portraits of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“The protest today is against US meddling in Israel’s internal affairs,” Yossef Mendelvich, one of the protest organizers, said to Ynet. Mendelvich is a writer and a former prisoner of Zion.
