Palestinian demonstrators set fire on Saturday night a makeshift Star of David with a Nazi swastika in the middle in the Nablus area, in a disturbing display of antisemitic hatred.

Images posted on social media showed the symbols being burned with torches near the Palestinian town of Beita, where there have been protests in recent months related to a land dispute with the neighboring Israeli community of Evyatar.

On numerous occasions, members of the Palestinian “night confusion unit” have shined lasers, burned tires, and detonated explosive devices to disturb Evyatar residents.

The use of the swastika by Palestinian demonstrators is not a new phenomenon.

In recent years, flags bearing swastikas were raised by Palestinian rioters on the Israel-Gaza Strip border, including twice in August 2019.

These swastika displays are further proof of the direct link between anti-Zionism and antisemitism.
