More than a thousand protesters took to the streets of Denver. They marched in support of Palestinians. SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED PROTESTER, SAYING: "We stand by the people of Gaza and we are demanding the end of the occupation of Gaza." Protesters condemned the recent Israeli attacks that have killed hundreds of Palestinians. SOUNDBITE: MOHAMAD ZEITAWI, PALESTINIAN SUPPORTER, SAYING: "I see all my Palestinian friends back home showing all these videos of what's happening and it's just torture, I can't go on Facebook anymore without tearing up." On Sunday, there was more bloodshed when more than 60 Palestinians and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed in Gaza. Some supporters of Israel say they want to push for peace. SOUNDBITE: RABBI JOSEPH BLACK, ISRAELI SUPPORTER, SAYING: "I don't want to see Muslims being killed, Jews being killed, Palestinians, Israelis, we want to put a stop to this but it was not Israel's decision to go into this war. This was a deliberate attack by Hamas and Israel has no choice but to defend herself." This was the second time in a week pro-Palestinian supporters marched in downtown Denver.
