London protesters compare Gaza to Auschwitz outside Israeli Embassy

Yes, that really does say Auschwitz, Iraq, Dachau, Palestine.

Some mocked the Holocaust, others disfigured the Israeli flag, a few screamed “Allahu Akbar”, they all called for the destruction of the Jewish state.

That was the scene outside London’s Israeli Embassy yesterday afternoon as many thousands thronged to hear blood-curdling speeches calling for the end of Israel.

Kensington High Street was closed off to traffic leaving London buses stranded by the protesters who requisitioned them and covered them with anti-Israel slogans.

The protest against Israel’s latest attack on Hamas in Gaza was a toxic mix of Islamists, trade unions like Unison, charities like War On Want, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and, of course, the extreme religious Jewish sect Neturei Karta.

I knew I had outstayed my welcome when a protester grabbed me and shouted “A Zionist!”. I shook him off and made for the relative safety of the tube station.

Here’s a clip for you to savour some of yesterday’s toxicity and some photos:

Disfiguring Israel's flag. At least they didn't burn it.

  1. The protesters should celebrate the latest divine victory of Hamas together with their bloodthirsty pets.

    Gazans dance in Jabalya after rocket salvo at Tel Aviv, false claims of Israelis hurt
    Channel 2 shows footage of Palestinian youths dancing and cheering in the Jabalya refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, minutes after a heavy rocket barrage was launched at the greater Tel Aviv area.
    Hamas says it launched 10 rockets. Six were intercepted by Iron Dome, according to Israeli media. There are no reports of Israelis injured.
    The rockets were aimed across central Israel, triggering alarms in the Modi’in area for the first time since this round of conflict erupted.
    Channel 2 says Hamas television is claiming that many Israelis were injured in the latest salvos, falsely citing ostensible Israeli media reports to this effect.
    Analyst Ehud Ya’ari says Hamas TV in Gaza was showing Channel 2′s live broadcasts at the time of the rocket attacks, hoping to see its rockets causing major impact in Israel.

  2. too bad one of those hamas rockets could not fly off course and land in the middle of this bunch of idiots and liars

  3. You are a brave man, Richard. Keep up the good work, be careful and all strength and health to you

    • I regularly have frank disagreements with pretzelberg.
      And will continue to do so.
      Whoever voted against his expression of sympathy to Richard is not only being extremely petty, but also disrespectful to Richard.

  4. Those who protest against Israel don’t have a clue what it’s like to live in the south of Israel where hundreds of rockets are fired daily by Hamas. Civilians including women, children and elderly sleep in bunkers, schools and nersaries have to close, businesses and general livelihoods affected, farm animals and pets traumetised by fear etc etc. Not to mention the murder of 3 innocent students. Would any of the protestors except this kind of daily existence? No, enough is enough!

      • War crimes are committed by Hamas who use their civilians as human shields.
        The Israelis on the other hand protect their civilians which include close to 2 million Arabs that live within Israel. Fact!

      • Syria doesn’t seem to commit any war crimes. Of course, they’ve only had 150,000 deaths whereas Israel has caused a whopping 103 (off of 1000+ bombing missions). What else can we say, Steven? I guess, Israel isn’t interested in peace as they have made 3 state offers since 2000. Of course, Palestinians believe in human rights, that’s why they blow up pizzerias where dirty Zionists eat lunch with their dirty Zionist babies.

        And you still wonder why we think you’re dickless douche? Intelligence has never been your forte. Neither has guts. Other than that, Big Steve (BS), you hit that nail on the head!

      • why they dont protest about wats hapaning in syria or iraq? when moslem kill moslems its ok i prsume .and wat right have english pepole to protest against israel???? ?they gave indipandas to scotland and weils? ho are they to lcsure us?wath a big fat hipocrasy!!!there was never an palastinian arab land-wat a good reason for antisemety!steven dont patronise israel.youre beloved hamas is a war criminal.he started that mas!

      • So much for an agreed upon truce after the war in Gaza a few years ago. Almost immediately after the truce, rockets flew from Gaza into Israel. How can you trust these people? What do the people of Gaza gain in supporting Hamas? Hamas doesn’t have the courage to do the right thing. I’m not crazy about Netanyahu, but Palestinian leadership, especially that of Hamas, is not only chauvanistic, but it is totally unsympathetic toward the people. They are controling freaks.

        • Hamas does not = all palestinians, why pretend this all the time?

          $traw man argument?

          and your disregard for ‘only 103’ lives show that your racist. And wont use real names. Because youre racists.

          • “And wont use real names. Because youre racists”

            ‘Steven B’ you are not in any position to complain about people not using their real names.
            Now crawl off back under your rock with Tehran Jane and noamy cry-baby.
            You will have to hide under a rock because the Fascist and cowardly thugs of Hamas are making sure that they are in the shelters and to hell with women and children

              • ‘Steven B’ or ‘Tim O’ or ‘Uncle Tom Cobleigh’ I am sure it is past your bedtime and Mummy is looking for you. Off you go slither back under your rock before it gets dark and you piss yourself with fear as you normally do.

  5. Neturei Karta are Jewish religious extremists which mostly live in Jerusalem. All thousands of these scumbags don’t work and live on benefits. They don’t pay tax, they get free housing, child benefit (average 8-12 children) free medical treatments, etc, etc. They depend on the generosity of the Israeli gov and the Israeli tax payers yet, they have the audacity to call for the destruction of Israel and the Israeli citizens. Basically, biting the hand that feeds you. Shame on you, what does Israel get in return from you, how does Israel benefit from you?
    Personally, I would ship them all to live in the West Bank and Gaza!

  6. A crowd cheering up the war crimes and crimes against humanity of the Islamists in London. What became of England?

  7. These delusional people outside the embassy obviously believe you can pick up a piece of shit by the clean end…..
