The Israeli offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip is now in its third week. In the Bay Area, protests, counter-protests and calls for action have been intensifying. In the first half hour, we check in with Bay Area supporters of Palestinians. In the second half, we talk with local supporters of Israel. What impact is the violence having on those in the Bay Area?
