07-08-2006 07:30On Saturday, tens of thousands gathered in London to demand an end to the Israeli bombardment of Lebanon. The protest was called by the Stop the War Coalition (STWC) with just one week’s notice.
The organisers estimate that 100,000 people marched from Hyde Park to Parliament Square via the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square. The demonstration was also supported by the British Muslim Initiative, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Lebanese community associations.
If the Lebanon war were to escalate into a broader conflict involving Syria, Turkish ground troops could be deployed under the terms of the Israeli-Turkish military alliance. It is worth mentioning that prime ministers Recep Erdogan and Ariel Sharon in a 2005 meeting in Tel Aviv decided to set up a "Hotline for the exchange of intelligence" as part of their evolving military alliance. What this suggests is that Turkey is a potential partner in the ongoing war on Lebanon.
