As U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Ramallah to meet Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday, women from the town of Beit El picketed near the checkpoint at the entrance to Ramallah.

The women called on Clinton to stop comparing between Israel and Gaza, and stop demanding a ceasefire from Israel, which is defending itself from constant Gaza rocket attacks.

In the following video, the women explain in English to Clinton why she should not pressure Israel to agree to a ceasefire, and why there is no resemblance between Hamas, which deliberately attacks innocent civilians, and Israel’s operation in Gaza, which is directed against terrorists who hide behind innocent civilians.
