Douglas Murray: Pro Palestinian Rally Was 'Anti Semitic Spectacle'

Writing in the Spectator magazine today, author and political commentator Douglas Murray has revealed how the ‘pro Palestinian’ rallies in London this week have been spectacles of anti-Semitism.

Murray wrote

Thousands of anti-Semites have today succeeded in bringing central London to an almost total standstill.

They marched though the centre of the city before congregating to scream outside the Israeli Embassy in Kensington. It was interesting to watch this rather non-diverse crowd pass. Most of the women seem to be wearing headscarves or the burka, while their men-folk were naturally more appropriately dressed for a sweltering summer day.

But what a picture. These are the people who stayed at home throughout the Syrian civil war, stayed at home when ISIS rampaged across Iraq, stayed at home when Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab carried out their atrocities across central Africa and showed no concern whatsoever when the Muslim Brotherhood was running Egypt into the ground. Yet they pretend to care about Muslims.

And here they all are, coming out to scream because Israel is carrying out the most specific and targeted campaign in the history of warfare in order to stop Hamas – a group dedicated to the annihilation of all Jews – from firing thousands of rockets into the Jewish homeland.

Social media users also took to Facebook and Twitter earlier to complain about former London Mayor Ken Livingstone’s remarks on the LBC Radio station. 

Livingstone has been a long-standing critic of Israel, but more to the point has been accused of anti-Semitism a number of times. He has previously alluded to Jewish people voting conservative due to their wealth, and called a Jewish reporter a “concentration camp guard”.
