Once again London witnessed the disgraceful spectacle of thousands of terror-supporting pro-Hezbollah marchers in the heart of London, after the pusillanimous refusal of the British Home Secretary Sajid Javid to ban Hezbollah in its entirety, including its “political wing”. Such a “political” wing in fact does not even exist according to Hezbollah’s own words.
As Hezbollah’s Deputy Secretary-General Naim Qassem said in 2012: “We don’t have a military wing and a political one; we don’t have Hezbollah on one hand and the resistance party on the other.” Other senior Hezbollah officials rejected the division and Saudi Arabian newspapers criticized the EU for making this distinction.
This is how come Londoners had to suffer once again this outrageous spectacle of terror supporters marching in support of one of the most violent terrorist organizations in the world.
The Gatestone Institute lists some of the revolting speakers at this year’s Al Quds march:
This year, the vicar Stephen Sizer, who has suggested that Israel was behind 9/11 and was banned from social media by Church of England authorities for six months for sharing “clearly anti-Semitic” material, will be one of the main speakers at the Al Quds march.
Jeremy Corbyn defended the vicar at the time, claiming that he had been condemned because he had “dared to speak out against Zionism”.
Mick Napier, of the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign, will also be speaking at the march. An activist who promotes isolating Israel to destroy it economically, Napier was convicted of aggravated trespass against an Israeli cosmetics store in 2014 and of failing to follow police orders to leave the store.
Just watch some of the hatred towards Israel expressed at the Al Quds march:
Thankfully this year, as last year, the British pro-Israel and Zionist organizations acted together to counter the ugly hate festival. Sussex Friends of Israel have videos of all the speakers at the counter-rally, at which the Zionist Federation, North London Friends of Israel and many other organizations participated. Here are a few to give you a taste of the action. You can see them all at the link above:
Here below is Harry from North London Friends of Israel, followed by MP Matthew Offord, a staunch supporter of Israel:
But the star of the entire event was no doubt media personality and commentator Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim and previously a terror supporter! His words ring loud and true and the terror-supporters hate him for it:
Kol hakavod to all the Zionist organizations who organized the counter-rally and of course a huge thank you to all the brave participants in the rally. It is no easy thing to possibly risk your personal safety when countering those supporters of a violent terrorist organization.
It is just so sad, not to say outrageous, that such a counter-rally was necessary in the first place. As Matthew Offord said, “we shouldn’t need to be here”. If the British Home Secretary and the government would do their job properly, the Al Quds rally could never have taken place to begin with.
