Some 300 Pakatan elected reps and supporters have gathered outside the US embassy at noon to protest at the Israeli attack on the humanitarian aid flotilla heading for Gaza. It is the fourth protest today.

Pakatan MPs are demanding that Najib summons Parliament within 48 hours to debate the Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla. The situation warrants immediate action, they say.
They condemn the Israeli aggression and demand that Najib terminates the Apco contract within 48 hours.
Earlier protests this morning by Perkasa (along with Malay-based NGOs) and Lifeline For Gaza at separate locations in front of the US embassy, drew several hundred people.
Meanwhile, several dozen BN Youth submitted a protest memo at Wisma UN in Jln Dungun. Strange that the BN group didn’t go to the US embassy. Didn’t want to rock Najib’s relations with Obama?
It was only just after midnight last night that Najib tweeted, “Just made a hard hitting statement against the Israeli govt for their heartless attack against the humanitarian convoy. I am so angry.”
Tell that to Apco as well.
Quick facts: 80 per cent of the people of Gaza rely on humanitarian aid; 45 per cent are unemployed.
