  • Women in white, Jews and Arabs, and like-minded men, marched together along Ben Tsion Boulevard from King George street to the corner of Rothschild Boulevard and HaBima Theater. There was a lot of energy, with calls shouted out to the rhythm given by Asma Aghbarieh-Zahalka of Daam on the megaphone. She shouted: "chauvinism" and the marchers answer "irhal" ("go away" in Arabic). "Exploitation of working women – irhal, sexual assault – irhal, military strikes – irhal"… The Boulevard is too short, it turns out, for real protest. ("Irhal", in Arabic, you may recall, is the word Egyptian protesters shouted out, calling Mubarak to leave.)
