Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

New York Rallies with International Community to Stand with Gaza!


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Millions of people have decried Israel’s crimes against humanity and
marched in solidarity with the people of Gaza.  In Europe, activists have
turned out in 12 countries, including in France, where thousands defied a
government ban.  One hundred and fifty thousand were reported to have
marched in great Britain.  Tens of thousands of Palestinians demonstrated
in the Occupied West Bank in solidarity with their Gaza sisters and
brothers.  Inside Israel 5,000 rallied in Tel Aviv, while 700 marched in Haifa
and others in Jerusalem.  Some 50 Israeli reservists refuse to serve in the
military’s invasion of Gaza.  Elsewhere in Asia, demonstrators came out in
many countries, and Australians and New Zealanders marched too.  
Protests have also occurred throughout Northern Africa and several cities
in South Africa, where government expelled the Israeli ambassador and
50,000 marched in Cape Town.  Several Latin American countries have
broken diplomatic relations with Israel.  Now in New York we’ve come
together with the international community to say we too Stand with Gaza!
