Since the latest flare-up of violence in Israel and the Gaza Strip began last week, pro-Palestinian demonstrations across the globe, particularly in Europe, have featured overt displays of antisemitism and incitement to terrorism.

These rallies have been held as millions of Israeli civilians have been indiscriminately targeted by Hamas rocket barrages from Gaza. In response to the rocket fire, the Israeli military has been conducting strikes on terrorist sites in Gaza, which is ruled by Hamas.

At an anti-Israel march in London over the weekend, several demonstrators revealed their antisemitic intent to a reporter, Elad Simchayoff of Israel’s Channel 12.

“We don’t believe in Israel. Israel is not real,” one of them said, after chanting in Arabic, “With our souls and our blood, we will redeem you, Al-Aqsa!”

Another demonstrator held up a show with an Israeli flag drawn on its bottom, and said, “Step on Israel.”

A different rally participant told Simchayoff that “international Zionists” were trying to take freedom of speech away from Europeans.

“They’re in all the media, and this is how they stop any criticism of what they’re doing to the Palestinian people,” he asserted.

“They did 9/11 as well,” he added.
