Central London was brought to a chaotic standstill on Shabbos as thousands marched and rallied against Israel at the “National Demonstration for Palestine: Exist! Resist! Return!”

The march saw open anti-Semitism from attendees, many of whom cheered as one speaker told adoring crowds that Jewish organizations are “in the gutter” and “part of the problem”. Numerous antisemitic banners and placards were carried through the streets, including one declaring that “Israel provokes antisemitism.” Marchers included senior Labour MPs, known Islamist extremists, and Tony Martin, the leader of the neo-Nazi National Front.

Volunteers from Campaign Against Antisemitism’s Demonstration and Event Monitoring Unit went into the thick of the protest to gather evidence which our Crime Unit is already reviewing.

Under a heavy police presence, protesters assembled outside the BBC headquarters and marched to Whitehall, the heart of British democracy, via iconic Regent Street. The BBC is just a short walk from Central Synagogue where many Jews were gathered for the Sabbath.

Various placards and badges on brazen display drew upon antisemitic conspiracy theories. One large placard declared that “Israel provokes antisemitism”. A badge emblazoned with a Star of David with a Nazi swastika in its midst proclaimed “Down with Zionism”. Another placard repeated the rhyme frequently chanted by the marchers; “From the [Jordan] river to the [Mediterranean] sea, Palestine will be free”, which only makes sense as a call for the destruction of the Jewish state and its replacement with a Palestinian state, and is thus an attempt to uniquely deny Jews the right to self-determination.

One marcher held aloft a placard suggesting that the BBC is controlled by the Israeli Prime Minister, whilst others hinted strongly at blood libels, carrying a coffin emblazoned with a claim that “Israelis execute Palestinian children” while another held a placard showing a diamond dripping with blood, stating that Israel exports “blood diamonds”, a phrase normally used to refer to diamonds mined by war criminals, usually using child slave labour.

Known Islamist extremists were also spotted by our volunteers, including one who was wearing the emblem of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Activists from “Labour Against Zionist Islamophobic Racism” or LAZIR, founded by Pete Gregson, who was reportedly expelled from the GMB Union over his claims that Israel “exaggerates” the Nazi Germany’s genocide of six million Jews “for political ends” and who seeks to drive “Zionism out of the Labour Party”, handed out leaflets claiming that Zionism, the movement to grant Jews self-determination, is “racism”.

Marching alongside them was the antisemitism-denial group, the sham Jewish Voice for Labour. Its Secretary, Glyn Secker, made a speech which was rapturously received, claiming that Jews were “in the gutter” and “part of the problem”.

Holding American Rabbis responsible for fueling the neo-Nazis behind antisemitic terrorism, including the fatal terrorist attack on Poway synagogue, Mr Secker claimed that they were “unleashing the extreme-right to win key votes in marginal states which determine the presidency”.

He then called 119 Labour MPs who are “friends of Israel” a “fifth column in the Labour Party led by [Dame Margaret] Hodge and [Tom] Watson and the Jewish Labour Movement.” Upon hearing the name of the Jewish Labour Movement, the crowd booed loudly.

“What on earth are Jews doing in the gutter with these rats?” Mr Secker asked, after claiming that the “Zionist Federation embraces the [far-right] English Defence League”, which is a fabrication. The crowd responded with calls of “Ban then from the Labour Party”.

Mr Secker then asked when Jews would fight fascism, before building to a crescendo: “Here’s a warning to the [British] Jewish leadership, while you foment your campaign of allegations of antisemitism against Corbyn and the left to silence Israel’s critics, while you cry wolf month after month, year after year in the Labour Party and remain blind to the explosion of the far-right and Islamophobia, you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.” The crowd cheered, by Mr Secker continued: “You serve to protect the poison that would destroy both our freedom and yours. Well brothers and sisters, we are on the side of the Palestinians. We are on the side of the freedom marchers of ghetto Gaza.”

Labour leaders previously intervened to stop Mr Secker from being punished under the Party’s disciplinary process.

Ahed Tamimi, who served almost eight months in prison in Israel for assaulting IDF soldiers, was the star attraction and addressed the crowd briefly. She finished her speech by repeating the antisemitic chant: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

Campaign Against Antisemitism’s Demonstration and Event Monitoring Unit saw no attempt by stewards from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) to remonstrate with any of the speakers or marchers.

Jeremy Corbyn, who is patron of the PSC, gave the march his ringing endorsement. A statement from him was read out by Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott and videoed by a Twitter user who is well-known to us for sending Jews abuse online. The crowd began cheering at the mere mention of Mr Corbyn’s name and applause and cheering continued as his statement was read. Mr Corbyn has long championed the PSC, attending many of its events, including one of which at which he was filmed applauding antisemitic poetry.

Richard Burgon, Shadow Secretary of State for Justice, who previously claimed that “Zionism is the enemy of peace” having told a court under oath that he had said no such thing, also addressed the crowd. The fact that Mr Burgon and Ms Abbott, such senior Labour politicians, attended an event which saw widespread antisemitism should be a cause for considerable concern.

The marchers, however, did not have the streets of central London to themselves. A brave group of anti-terrorism activists waving Israeli flags confronted the marchers.

The protest was organised by the PSC, Stop the War Coalition, Palestinian Forum in Britain, Friends of Al- Aqsa and the Muslim Association of Britain. It was supported by the pro-Corbyn Momentum faction of the Labour Party as well as trade unions Unite, PCS, Unison, GMB, RMT, ASLEF, UCU, NEU, TSSA, CWU, and other organisations including the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the Amos Trust charity.

An investigation by Campaign Against Antisemitism in 2017 exposed extensive antisemitic bigotry amongst supporters of the PSC. Just this week, an Evening Standard investigation uncovered supporters of the PSC sharing antisemitic posts comparing Israelis to Nazis. The shocking antisemitic posts reportedly included a cartoon comparing Israeli Jews with white power neo-Nazis and an image of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bathing in Palestinian blood, posing with Adolf Hitler.

The fact that this march saw such brazen displays of antisemitism, with warm support for and from the Labour Party and major trade unions, as well as with the attendance of Islamists and at least one neo-Nazi leader, clearly shows the coalition of antisemitism that British Jews now find themselves the target of. The far-left, the far-right and Islamist extremists clearly all share a common hatred of Jews, and they all attempt to conceal their antisemitism as opposition the world’s only Jewish state.

Campaign Against Antisemitism’s Crime Unit is now reviewing the evidence gathered today by the volunteers of our Demonstration and Event Monitoring Unit. Where crimes have been committed, we will pursue prosecutions.

  1. White car? Is that because you don’t live in England and couldn’t careless about something that doesn’t affect you? R you a yid? Do you not care about other Yiden? And more importantly do you not realise that when it seems like there is a hole in my boat, we are actually sharing the same vessel???

  2. I care when Jews make a Chilul Hashem. Even those who object to recognizing the State of Israel, condemn such behavior in public. When they discover their punishment [loosing their oilam haba] for this terrible aveira, there won’t be any smiles on their faces. What a tragedy.

  3. No Eruv nothing. They tied the posters around their waists – like a shabbos belt – which is total חילול שבת.
    They have no Torah, no Daas Torah and no Daas of the Torah. They are so hellbent on anti Zionism that it becomes their entire religios doctrine.
    Its just a shame they dress as religious Jews.

  4. Are they anti-Zionists or Palestinian activists?!? Why do they wear Palestinian scarfs and symbols?!?
    They should clearly say that don’t represent in any form the Jewish anti-Zionist circles THEY ARE SIMPLE PALESTINIAN ACTIVISTS!!

  5. One can be a non-supporter of Zionism, and still be light years away from the hatred to the rest of world Jewry that characterizes these baalei aveiro. They do not need to be chassidim of the State or Zionism to be tolerant of other Yidden, or to recognize that these Palestinians are bloodthirsty for Jewish blood. That predates Zionism, as was proven many times.

    Meanwhile, these clowns are mechalelei Shabbos, abandoning everything that Shabbos represents to support those that not only hate Yidden, but are sworn to destroy us, just as the Nazis did. The excuses they give are beyond stupid, and the evil they support is intolerable. I would hope to see every one of these career sinners (whose ancestry should be suspect) removed from the ability to have anything to do with Klal Yisroel, and their families should be rejected from shidduchim within Klal Yisroel.

  6. Everyone knows they are kooks, even the palestinians. What bothers me is all the kids from Modern/open orthodox schools who are joining ifnotnow and jstreet despite all their years saying hallel and eating blue & white cupcakes on yom haatzmaut. Worry about the kids in manhattan day schools who are embarrased to say ashreinu ma tov chelkeinu and ‘ asher bachar banu mikol ha amim’ because it conflicts with their social justice views

  7. That entire sect of Chassidus must be publicly reprimanded & shamed for their continuous anti-semitic,… yes you heard right… ANTI-SEMITIC rabble rousing.
    I can understand the possibility of anti-semitism infecting the minds of Goyim or even non-religious or non-observant Jews, but Chassidishe “Frum” anti-semites?!?
    That’s just simply dain bramage. They need to be institutionalized.
    Why some Gadol out there does not publicly declare a worldwide Cherum on these warped cauliflower brains, I cannot understand.
    How many more years of this extreme Chilul Hashem must Klal Yisroel endure?

    Speak up Rabbanim, SPEAK UP!!!!

    P.s. YWN should stop posting their garbage as it gives them more fuel
