      Arabs Wave PLO Flag in the Center of Haifa

      Jewish demonstrators who held a quiet rally with Israeli flags in Haifa on Saturday were shocked when Arab demonstrators responded - by waving the PLO flag.

      One of the Jewish protesters, who asked not be named, told Arutz Sheva on Sunday that the Jewish rally was meant to counter a pro-Palestinian Authority Arab protest that took place a few weeks ago in the German Colony neighborhood in the center of Haifa. During that protest, he said, some 2,000 protesters smashed the windowpanes of nearby stores and left the area in a mess.
