Israelis march in east Jerusalem in test for new government

Hundreds of Israeli ultranationalists, some chanting "Death to Arabs," paraded through east Jerusalem on Tuesday in a show of force that threatened to spark renewed violence just weeks after a war with Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip. Palestinians in Gaza responded by launching incendiary balloons that caused at least 10 fires in southern Israel.
