This rally marched from Times Square to the Israeli embassy.  I went there with my portrait lens, and expected a riot.  Bu it was optimistic and upbeat, and any aggression or bias was condemned by the rally's speakers.  The kids I photographed all less then ten years old on September 11, 2001, so they probably have a completely different perspective than the older protesters.

There was also an Orthodox Jewish pro-Palestinian group there, that condemns the Israeli state, and supports the old model of all peoples living together in cities in different quarters.
