Israelis March in Tel Aviv

Watch live here

Initial estimates put the turnout between 3,000 and 5,000. Ynet reports:
Thousands of people are marching from Rabin Square to Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv calling the government to "Say yes to a Palestinian state as an Israeli interest."
A friend of mine adds that a handful of counter-demonstrators, trailing and kept at a distance by police, chanted "Leftists equal terrorists. Death to terrorists. Leftists to Gaza." A math fail? Or a new take on separate but equal? Oh, well.

Update: Police are putting the numbers between 8,000 and 9,000. Organizers say 20,000.

Later update: It is really striking to see Israelis waving Palestinian flags and carrying posters reading "67".
