6,000 British Zionists laughed and danced disgracefully at London’s Wembley Arena on Tuesday night as the Zionist Federation put on an evening of comedy and music to celebrate Israel’s 65th birthday.

Stacey Solomon sang, Britain’s Got Talent winners Spelbound dazzled with musical gymnastics, Israeli star Ivri Lider played piano and Mark Maier made everyone laugh with his descriptions of strange Jewish behaviour, for example pensioner Bernie with his bad back “going on security” in synagogue which is hardly going to thwart an attack from Al Qaida.

Finally, Israeli star Ishtar lifted the roof when she joined forces with Gipsy Kings co-founder “Chico” and with Alabina to get the Arena pumping to Arabic and Spanish music, including Gipsy Kings hits Bamboleo and Volare which had them all dancing disgracefully in the aisles.

Some 30 anti-Israel activists protested outside with extremist Jewish sect Neturei Karta taunting concert goers about the Holocaust. Typically, I was quietly taking photos before being moved on by the police under threat of arrest for breaching the peace after Massoud Shadjareh, chair of Islamic Human Rights Commission, complained that I was “provoking them”. Here he is in action:

  1. Some one needs to tell Neturey Karta that the Torah flag is not the Union jack or the Palestinian flag.

  2. The usual arab hypocrisy!!!! More syrians were killed by its own people in 18 months than palestians and israelis in 20 years.

  3. A cheering-up post, thank you Richard Millett. I’d love to have been in the audience. It sounds like it was a celebration event worth attending.

    The demo outside doesn’t look very big, but it would have been surprising if there hadn’t been one at all. Some observations I’d like to make from the photos and video.

    Neturey Karta may be cranks in many Jewish people’s eyes, but in my view they are very dangerous because most non-Jews will assume they represent all ultra Orthodox and will not be aware they are a small and unrepresentative group (in Britain at any rate).

    One of the Arab demonstrators appears to be carrying a placard on which has been scrawled something that looks like ‘Gas Arabs UDL’ — I can’t see all the placard properly — perhaps Richard can tell us what it said?

    The repellent, smugly sneering faces of most of the demonstrators, seems to be the standard facial expression exhibited by the rocket-loving misfits whenever they publicly group together to seek Israel’s destruction.

  4. It says “Gas the Arabs – JDL” I think this is the Jewish Defence League? It is a photo of what was allegedly scrawled by the JDL although whether it was written by them, who knows for sure?

    • False Flag.

      I read a lot of pro-Israel comments on the blog/internet that are quite honestly gratuitously anti-Arab that frankly no sane person with even a ton of dislike of Arab/Muslim behaviour towards Jews and Israel would warrant.

      They can only be made to look Jews hateful and crazy.

    • Even if there is a genuine piece of graffiti somewhere in the world that was genuinely scrawled by a Jew that says “Gas the Arabs”, what does that prove?

      That there exists a sick, evil Jew somewhere in the world who hates Arabs and would like to see them exterminated? No dispute there.

      That this is a prevalent view of Israelis/Zionists? Not a chance.

      That this is the policy of the Israeli government? Don’t make me laugh.

      If this is the standard of advocacy we have to face, we have no concerns.

  5. This year’s celebrations were successful I thought.One of the best lines of the evening came from Alan Aziz, the diirector of ZF who decried the bad press Israel was getting in the UK and in some of the Israeli press, but surprisingly not so in the Arab press and media. Jews apparently are controlling the world, are controlling banks and have the most powerful lobbies etc etc Worth reflecting on, I thought.
