FILE - In this file photo taken Saturday, July 19, 2014, an Israeli left-wing activist holds a sign during a demonstration against Israel's operation in the Gaza Strip, in Tel Aviv, Israel. Despite Israeli casualties and world criticism, a near-consensus in Israel supports the government’s conduct of the Gaza war, views Hamas as the aggressor and considers outsiders' moralizing as hypocritical, ignorant or both. A small but vocal opposition exists, but those arguing for peace are vociferously shouted down in a way rarely seen in a country long proud of its spirited, democratic debate.
