[Ed. – Pot, meet kettle.]
The man standing on a lion statue in Trafalgar Square yesterday held a Palestinian flag. Beneath him, a placard read: “Stop doing what Hitler did to you.” A poster held up by a woman read: “Israel, the new Nazi state”.
The pair were among tens of thousands of protesters who took to the streets in London and Manchester yesterday over the conflict in Gaza.
One placard in the capital referred to “Holocaust Part 2” while another, pictured by the charity Campaign Against Antisemitism, referred to Israel’s prime minister. It read: “Netanyahu surpasses Hitler in barbarism.”
Last night, MPs and campaigners including the government antisemitism tsar, Lord Mann, lamented that a rally to support Palestine had been hijacked by anti-Jewish sentiment.
