Turbulence in the Middle East namely the ongoing battle between Palestine and Israel has hit the cities in the U.S. namely San Francisco. The protest in San Francisco on November 15 2012 at the Israeli consulate on Montgomery Street was loud and got very aggressive toward’s the end when the Palestinian protesters became eager to confront the pro-Israeli protesters who showed up across the street. The Palestinian protesters were very loud and repetitive in their message while the pro-Israeli protesters seemed to belittle and mock the pro-Palestinian protesters.
I was “live on scene at Israeli vs Palestine protest in downtown SF, and couldn’t figure out what side of the police line I was on. It got messy for a second. Tonight while covering that protest it was like a roller coaster. People screaming and hollering, signs everywhere, police with batons, cars speeding-by, workers trying to leave, and the pushing and shoving that often occurs by protesters, and all-the-while trying to make sure I remain objective.

I used my Canon Rebel T3i and that camera is no joke. I worked it hard, and it put-out. Very nice camera.

I posted pics and video on CNN’s iReport site and on Indybay.org. Links below.
