Jewish Defense League planning to disrupt pro-Palestinian rally in London [BIKYAMASR]


[Image above: You can see that the Birmingham 'Palestine Solidarity Campaign' chose to protest outside Marks & Spencer in Birmingham. You see, any Jews will do; even if they aren't Zionists or political in any way. That is one reason why so-called 'Anti-Zionism' is actually racism - anti-Semitism. This is the catch-all nature of most, or all, 'anti-Israel boycotts' (especially the academic ones) - they target all Israelis - all the Jews - in Israel... Now we are on the subject. Why did Damon Albarn, of Blur, cancel the tour of Israel? Did he think that only hard-core Zionists would attend the gigs? And why did they choose to go to the torture chamber and dictatorship that is Syria instead? Because Syrians are brown and Muslim, whereas Israelis are 'white' (according to Trots) and non-Muslim? Or is it simply because anti-Zionism is hip?]

LONDON: The organizers of the Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day Rally in London, on 4 September, 2010, have called on pro-Palestinian and anti-fascist groups to come out to show solidarity against counter-demonstrations organized by Zionist and Fascist groups.

Police have warned the organizers that the English Defense League (EDL), March for England and the Jewish Defense League (JDL) groups are planning to try to disrupt the event, which is organized by Muslim groups but supported by others including the Stop the War Coalition and Jews Against Zionism.

Since last year’s Al-Quds Day event, which was marked by confrontations with counter-demonstrators including the EDL and Zionist groups, supporters of the Palestinians have noted increasing cooperation between Zionists and far-right groups trying to disrupt pro-Palestinian demonstrations and activities.

Al-Quds Day is an annual day of solidarity with the Palestinians and other oppressed peoples marked by Muslims around the world at the end of the holy month of Ramadan. (Al-Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem.) Rallies marking the day have been held in London annually since 1980. Supporters of the event in London this year include the Muslim Council of Britain, the Stop the War Coalition, Jews Against Zionism, the Islamic Forum of Europe and the Federation of Student Islamic Societies (FOSIS).

Massoud Shadjareh, chair of the IHRC, said:

“Al-Quds Day has traditionally been a peaceful family event attended by Muslims and others from all over the country, as a demonstration of solidarity with ordinary people suffering in Palestine. Last year’s problems and the threat of similar problems this year, are deeply worrying therefore, especially as the groups involved have a history of violence, and the JDL has been linked with terrorism [sic!!!!!! and sick!!!] in the USA and elsewhere.

“The growing alliance between apologists for Israel and far-right extremists like the EDL, now regularly witnessed at pro-Palestinian events, is of growing concern to all supporters of Palestinians in this country. We strongly believe that everyone, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, should be able to express their views, and stand up for victims of oppression anywhere in the world, without facing these sorts of threats and intimidation.

“We hope those who share our concerns about both the rise of racism and Islamophobia in Britain, and the plight of Palestinians, will turn out on Saturday to make a clear point to those who support racism and fascism in whatever form.”

  1. I am certain that the Jewish Division will do the EDL proud and protest effectively against the Islamist, Hamas terrorist sympathizers that dare to wrap their acts of war in the clothing of human rights. The Palestinians are standing against the only true democracy in the Middle East, and the so-called human rights establishment stand with the terrorists - they have lost their way and lost the moral imperatives on which their cause rests. Since when was the promotion of sharia norms a human rights priority? The human rights organisations that do not oppose sharia should be ashamed of themselves.
