March Against Anti-Semitism

Atualizado: 28 de nov. de 2023

Finally, a massive peaceful march of around 60,000 people in central London on Sunday 26th, to demonstrate against anti-Semitism, in response to pro-Palestinian protests, demanding a ceasefire in Gaza, had made the capital a ‘no-go zone for Jews’.

That being said while pro-Palestinian demonstrations have been going on for several weeks in London, the English media have observed protests with as many as three to five, or even up to ten thousand strong turnouts. Anti-Semitism has been rife and chants for free Palestine from the river to the sea commonplace. Though many are joining in for human-rights and peaceful attempts to persuade Israel to stop killing innocent victims, we can’t lose sight of Israels right to arms after the atrocities of October 7th.

Furthermore, it has to be said that Israels IDF gave ample warning for Northern Gazans to go south before entering by ground attack. As we all know, Gaza’s elected parliament, Hamas, according to Muslim Arabs of the region prohibited them from evacuating, and used them as human shields. Then we are led to believe that Israel who supply water and electricity there, have both been turned off. There are some controversial opinions as to the accuracy of such a claim, but the Israeli Defense Forces are routing out the entire Hamas organization.

Some in the crowd spoke of their fears. Jeremy Dein, a 63-year-old lawyer from north London, said: “I am completely shocked and overwhelmed by the antisemitism that has clearly been bubbling under the surface, which a lot of people are using under the mask of pro-Palestine and pro-Gaza.

“I feel the Jewish community has to show that it is strong and when we said never again, we meant never again. That’s why I’m here and I’m very proud to be here.”

The former prime minister Boris Johnson was among those attending.

Have a great day!
