Israeli police brace for Mideast’s Occupy loons

A large number of police officers were stationed on Monday in central Tel Aviv as social activists prepared to march in protest of Friday’ arrests. 12 people were taken into custody as police used what the protesters called excessive force.
Under the banner “Emergency protest! Returning the power to the people,” activists plan to march on Rotchild Blvd, the site of last year’s most prominent “tent city,” and hold a rally at Habima Theater Square. They plan to join forces with another demonstration in support of Israel’s gay community, which has been attacked by several Israeli politicians in recent days.
